"I wasn't sure what to think of the non-dairy creamer. We had a hard time finding this flavor. We tried other flavors and they certainly give a new twist on French toast."

"I love butter pecan, and I love French toast, but the two of these together were a little too sweet for me. My kids liked it though!"

"This is one of the best french toast recipes I have ever made. I made a double batch and froze half. My kids love to microwave about 20 seconds and then pop in the toaster. Will be a staple in my freezer year round."
