Well said.

I googled it. Sometimes it just amazes me how people can make money by treating us like we haven't a brain in our heads. I mean really it's an insult to our intelligence to look at some of the boxed stuff you can buy in the grocery store. Oh, by the way, I put nutmeg in my custard too, and my eggnog.

I used to make Dr. Oetker's crème caramel. It didn't used to have a bunch of weird chemicals. I tried making custard once and only succeeded in wasting my ingredients. The packaged stuff was easy, cheap, and good. Friends who adore crème caramel told me it was as good as the stuff in upscale restaurants. Does that insult someone's intelligence?

Hey, if it works for you go for it. I just get insulted when I think about the totality of products that are little more than milk, eggs, flour and sugar that pretty much anyone can put together and save a bundle of money doing so. I did not mean to insult you.

I guess I overreacted. I don't think there is any reason to be insulted - shocked and stunned, yes

I'm surprised to find recipes here that include packaged stuff. I understand that as an emergency substitute or hurry up measure, but not as a wonderful recipe.

I googeld it also. I wonder how close it would be to make a rich non-dairy creamer & put some caramel & vanilla coffe syrup in it. I will try it & experiment with it. It may be a good topping for our caramelized bread pudding on the menu.

Please let me make myself clear here for the sake of future posts. I have no problem using boxed products if they are cheaper and of high quality and nutritional content. It's when folks buy boxed because they are too lazy to make their own, or can't be bothered to learn to do it themselves that I get on my soapbox. I have a sister-in-law who buys only frozen "foods", won't even buy boxed because some assembly is required. So I guess this is where a lot of my attitude comes from (And this woman is dirt poor.) So please folks, let me off the hook.
