Check out each of the reviews below to learn how La Crème 100% real dairy creamers were able to please each bloggers palate. Every blogger is also giving away $100! Ends 3/31/11

You have 10 chances to win $100 from La Crème Coffee Creamer! Share a comment on each of the 10 blogs listed below, 10 people will win!

Ali of Cheaper Than Therapy finds a huge plus in the fact that La Crème is 100% dairy. “I once tried a non-dairy creamer that was labeled as “an edible-oil product.” True story. Now, granted, I have no idea what the heck that even means… I prefer words like real and 100% and dairy.”

Jaime of Good Eats ‘n Sweet Treats shares, “Both my husband and I tried the La Crème cinnamon vanilla flavor creamer and agreed that it is rich and creamy, exactly how coffee creamer should be.”

Swistle notes that, “La Crème is lactose-free, this would be the perfect one for someone who wants real cream in their coffee but needs to avoid lactose.”

Mary of Owlhaven likes the different flavors available. “Cinnamon and hazelnut are my favorites.”

Secret Agent Josephine hates unnatural flavored non-dairy creamers with a passion. “I say, stick to the real stuff. La Créme is real and it comes in four all-natural flavors: French Vanilla, Original, Hazelnut and Cinnamon Vanilla. I like French Vanilla and Original the best.”

Meg of Whatever… takes her coffee with no sugar but lots of cream, so she preferred The Original flavor of La Créme. “Some nights I think to myself as I lay down "I can't wait for morning....so I can have a cup of coffee".

Pamela of My Man’s Belly, after being pleasantly surprised with the flavor, decided to put it to the test by using it her recipes. “Since I was craving Italian gelato, I decided to use it in the making of this mango gelato recipe.”

Karly of Buns In My Oven loves that it is made from real dairy, “With no artificial flavors, trans-fat, or the dreaded high fructose corn syrup that I’m always grumbling about!”

Karen of Our Life In The Kitchen headed out for a camping and the La Crème went with her. “…they were easy to drop into the cooler. The French Vanilla was a big hit with the kids. My favorite though is the Cinnamon Vanilla. It’s sweet but not too sweet and adds just the right touch of both flavors for a great iced treat or a tasty cup of hot coffee.”

Naomi of Bakers Royale not only enjoyed the taste, texture and color that La Crème added to her coffee, it is also the new found secret weapon for her cinnamon French toast recipe!

"Stouffer's Saute's for Two seem to be a good fit for us!" ~ Said Megan of In This Wonderful Life.

Slynnro said ~"And how did it turn out? Darn good, I must say. To address the concerns..."

"When we finished the dinner we actually lingered at the table, talking about how enjoyable the night was." ~ Said Jennifer of Vermont Cabin Fever.

"So a couple of weeks ago we decided to make Friday night special (and a whole lot less stressful) by treating ourselves to Stouffer's Grilled Chicken & Asiago Tortelloni Sautes for Two." ~ Said Felicity of Our Little Beehive.

"It’s a great gourmet meal for a couple – perfect for after a long week where you don’t have the energy to cook but still want a delicious meal." ~ Said Kirsten of Newlyweds Next Door.

"The bottom line for us is that Stouffer’s created a product that we both really enjoyed, that didn’t take all night or all my energy to cook and that gave us time to focus on just us, our little family, in the midst of the chaos of our lives." ~ Said Kathryn of Overflowing Brain.

"The sauce was very tasty, had a definite gorgonzola flavor and there was plenty of sauce." ~ Said Judy of Patchwork Times.

"I'm not exaggerating when I say, I'm 100% sure we're going to stock our freezer up with Stouffer's Sautes for Two asap!" ~ Said ...love Maegan.

"The meal came together in less than 15 minutes, which is awesome because when I come home from a long day of work, the last thing I want to do is cook!" ~ Said Jaime of Good Eats 'n Sweet Treats.

"An incredible meal on the couch with a serving dish and two forks can be a special night too!" ~ Said Leslie of Lamberts Lately.

"The steak was yummy and I liked the peppers with it too. The chicken asiago was nice and restaurant worthy." ~ Said Natalie of The Bobby Pin.

"We both agreed that they were restaurant quality – and that we’d rather spend the evening at home together over good food than to fight the crowds going out!!" ~ Said Deborah of Taste and Tell.

"They were excellent, and better yet, took almost no time to prepare. Which means you don’t have to wait until after dinner to start de-stressing from your day." ~ Said Erika of The Ivory Hut.

See how these 10 bloggers below used So Delicious® coconut milk 7 ways in 7 days and enter for a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card on each blog! ends 3/20

"With my daughter, who is a diabetic, I focus on low fat and smart carb options and with my son, I just want him to willingly ingest something so I don’t lie awake at night obsessing over the fact that I’m pretty sure he only ate nine goldfish crackers that day. One thing they both agree on? So Delicious Coconut Milk is tasty." Click to read more at Raising Colorado.

"Combined 1 Vanilla Coconut Milk Single and 1 cup of regular coconut milk with 2 cups of mixed frozen berries and 1 scoop of protein powder in the blender for my post “butt kicking” track workout recovery drink / dinner. It was late. I was tired. A shake was easy, and the good fats from the Coconut Milk and the protein I added filled me up. And it actually tasted good. That’s always a plus." Click to read more at Geek Turned Athlete.

"I am so excited to have found So Delicious Coconut Milk! Coconut milk is naturally gluten-free and cholesterol-free. It's also a good source of calcium and Vitamin B12. It can be used in place of milk, but it is completely dairy-free." Click to read more at It's Twinsanity!

"The first test was regular flavored So Delicious, instead of cow's milk, to cook morning oatmeal. The So Delicious was wonderful - creamy and smooth." Click to read more at A Lovely Thing.

"But really there are two reasons why I love this stuff and would buy it again..." Click to read more at Novel Eats.

"So what did we think of it? Well. One of the things So Delicous says to describe their Coconut Milk is, “Tastes Just Like Milk – Only Better!” I didn’t think it tasted like milk. Milk is nasty. This stuff is GOOD." Click to read more at Twinfinite Chaos.

"In that vein, here's some ways I've been using So Delicious Coconut Milk Beverage: I've been handing Alexis a box of Vanilla So Delicious Coconut Milk to drink with her dinner; You know the glow-in-the-dark macaroni-n-cheese? Yeah, we like that stuff. A lot. I've been giving it a bit of a reduced hormone twist by using Unsweetened Coconut Milk when I make it..." Click to read more at Burgh Baby.

"Coconut Milk. Have you tried it? How about in 7 ways??? I am pretty close! [?] In my coffee. We are NOT surprised. [?] In my rice. Yes. Instead of water… use coconut milk. It’s so nice!" Click to read more at Jenny on the Spot.

"The new coconut milk from So Delicious presents coconut milk as a wonderful and sweet alternative to dairy, which as a Pacific Islander who grew up with coconuts outside my own house, I had forgotten was even possible." Click to read more at Kirida.

"Now that I’ve had So Delicious Coconut Milk in my home for a few days, I can tell you that I’ve tried it in place of real milk in very common things and believe it or not- I don’t miss the real milk at all!" Click to read more at Lauren's Latest.
