"This is a yummy drink but does taste more like coffee with flavoring than most coffee shop drinks; I tend to prefer the latter. I added more milk and liked it better!"

"I am not a coffee fan but thought this would be fun for Thanksgiving. Since I'm not a coffee drinker I think I made my coffee a little too strong, but that didn't stop me. I almost drank the entire recipe. It was so yummy. Thanks for a tasty drink."
