The pros: Trader Joe's French Toast is a breakfast food that can be ready fairly quickly from under a minute in the microwave to just under 10 minutes in the toaster oven.
The cons: Still not as good as homemade made, but probably as good as you can get out of a freezer box. I was wishing for a greater depth of flavors like vanilla.
The verdict: For $2.49 you get 6 slices of fresh toast. If you are in a rush, then this is a great time saver over making fresh french toast. This isn't as good as you can probably make at home or have at your local diner, but that's not why you would buy this. You'll get a slice of bread no thicker than the one you would get from a pre sliced bread loaf. You'll also miss out on some of the crust that can only come off of a fresh hot griddle. If you are in a rush or just need to grab something quick this is better than the Kellogg's brand of French Toast.

Would I buy this again? For me this is a yes. It's a quick workweek breakfast that is ready in no time. I can't comment on how it would come out in the microwave as I made this in the toaster oven which took under 10 minutes. It was eggy and smelled of cinnamon. What I tasted was a slice of bread in the almost exact same size as a slice of Wonderbread that had been dipped in an egg cinnamon mixture. It was as good as it can get in a freezer package as it's hard to emulate the fresh off the griddle taste and texture. It was a tad bit more moist than I would like but in no way prevented me from eating it. It would be good with maple syrup or a fruit syrup and some fresh fruit.

Do you eat anything that's not made by this Joe chap?
I do. However, food blogging does take quite of a bit of time. Recently I've spent most of my evenings in physical therapy so I've been blogging about what I've been eating, so I'm hoping to get back into regular cooking with actual original recipes soon.
I'm sure it does and look forward to reading about stuff you've made, as well as Joe's stuff. All good!
Thanks for the kind words.
Hehe, to me this is a very funny thing to see pre-packaged and frozen xD But I shouldn't be surprised in the world that favors convenience so much 😛
