  • Rating Have to buy on line to get my flavor, Monday, April 28, 2014
  • by Bill Morrison , El Paso TX and Manchester MI
  • I have started my morning with this product for about 50 years. My two disappointments are that I can't get the Choc. Malt in the "no added sugar" version anymore and the stores near me no longer carry Choc. Malt.

  • Rating Quick and easy Breakfast, Thursday, April 05, 2012
  • by Chris , Alaska
  • I drink this every morning. I especially like the vanilla. However, I live in Alaska where everything is more expensive but I still pay about one dollar less at the store than what it costs to purchase here online. And that does not even include the shipping price.

  • Rating Its a life saver, Monday, February 13, 2012
  • by MIchael P. Jones , Tampa, FL. & Birmingham, AL.
  • I used to drink instant breakfast/breakfast essentials almost every day when I was a small child. Its was like this awsome treat for breakfast. I became deathly ill a few years ago with pancreatitus and couldn't keep food down. My weight dropped to 140 lbs, and I should weigh 200 lbs. I found that instant breakfast was something I could keep down. It didn't cause me pain when I would drink it like solid food would., and I love the taste.(BONUS) I started drinking several a day for many months and i was able to maintain my weight and finally was able to gain some.I was able to slowly eat solid food again and now I am at a healthy 210 lbs. My desease chronic pancreatitus is terminal and I have bad days but when I do I can always count on my carnation instant breakfast to give me what I need to maintain my weight and health. I make it with skim milk, now and it's just a part of my daily routine. Its like a treat to me. My sister has also gotten very ill and when she has a bad day and can't eat I make her an instant breakfast and it gives her what she needs to keep up her strength.It's also great for the kids. If sis and I are running late or having a bad morning(health wise) we make both her girls a 16 oz. serving. each and we can drop them off at school knowing they have a full belly and it's good for them not some fast food breakfast junk. They think its so cool they get to have chocolate milk for breakfast. Carnation you have been a part of my familys daily life for at least 40 years. Thanks from the bottom of my heart for such a wonderful product. In a way it saved my life. LOL
