Rated 5 out of 5 by SharonH from Rich flavor The Dark Chocolate Breakfast Essentials is my favorite because the chocolate flavor is rich and smooth. Unfortunately, this flavor is hard to find in stores. Sadly, the only store in my area that carried this flavor just discontinued it. I hope Carnation will look in to this matter and help make Dark Chocolate just as available as its other flavors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anderson from Best flavor I am disappointed to learn that chocolate malt has been discontinued. It has been my favorite flavor for almost 25 years. I am not a fan of the wet/dry texture of cereal so I was super excited as a kid to have this and have had it as my breakfast for almost every day since! It stopped showing up in local grocery stores awhile ago, but I was very happy to learn I could order cases of it online. Please reconsider bringing it back, at the very least online. The milk chocolate flavor is too sweet in comparison.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Milkman from Favorite flavor I’ve been drinking this flavor every morning for the past 5+ years and loving it. I tried all the other flavors in a variety pack and didn’t like any of them. Carnation Instant Breakfast also makes it easier for me to take my medicine than with water. Please reconsider and bring it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bought2much from Love Classic Chocolate Malt - Where did it go? I love the classic chocolate malt flavored Instant Breakfast. This has been my breakfast choice for nearly a decade now. First it stopped selling in my local grocery stores. Now it is unavailable online. PLEASE bring classic chocolate malt flavor back, breakfast just won't be the same without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Angie83 from IT’S BACK! When this flavor was discontinued years ago, my grandmother and I were heartbroken. Imagine my surprise when I came across it at the grocery store a few weeks ago! It tastes just the same now as it did then. Thank you for bringing cafe mocha back, please don’t discontinue it ever again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by TH25 from Upsetting I’ve been drinking instant breakfast as long as I can remember (I’m 25) and have always had the chocolate malt flavor as a top favorite, I haven’t been able to find it in recent years and it’s very upsetting. The other flavors are okay and I always get the variety pack, but variety packs are becoming harder to find as well. I like instant breakfast as something I can have that will help keep me satisfied until actual breakfast or from breakfast until lunch and it’s also one of the only ways I can drink milk. Please bring back the chocolate malt flavor and make variety packs easier to find for the customers who have been loyal to you for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katie B from Where have all the fun flavors gone? Back when it was Instant Breakfast (I still call it that, too), there was an Eggnog flavor. I loved it. Then it went away. I seem to recall enjoying a Mocha flavor, too. It's definitely gone now. Then there was Dark Chocolate. I sometimes mixed it with a little O.J. and vanilla almond milk. LOVED it. And through it all, there was Chocolate Malt. LOVED IT!!! Why? WHY? Why do you keep taking away my favorites?! I still drink it, still get the variety pack because I like the Chocolate and the Vanilla. Don't love the Strawberry, but it's okay. I used to drink it first, and save the Chocolate Malt for last. It's a hard habit to break after 40 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hermione from original milk chocolate After a hospital stay I used to buy Ensure occasionally . The price went up astronomically. Plus I want to get away from buying plastic containers. Which I have promised myself to drastically reduce this coming year. Went back to Carnation powder, after comparing the nutrition values. Carnation has a little less of some ingred. but not that much difference. So I am happily buying the original chocolate powder drink and enjoying it either as added to a light breakfast or simply as the meal replacement.And helping Mother Earth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jack from Truly saddening I am a mother of two boys 11 and 13 who have loved this for most of their lives. Went to purchase at start of school year and cannot find. Cannot believe its been discontinued. This was the only flavor they cared for and now it is obsolete. Please bring the malt back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cyndi from way to much sugar with the exception of the light start, your product has way to much sugar even for the higher protein new one, anybody looking to stay healthy doesnt need 20 grams of sugar in a DRINK, adding more protein to lightstart would have made much more sense

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cathy from BRING IT BACK I am extremely disappointed that you have opted to discontinue this flavor. I have been drinking the Classic Chocolate malt EVERY MORNING for about 20 years and it is by far my favorite. I find it hard to believe it was discontinued due to low sales. I have tried the other flavors and they just don't stand up to the taste. Please reconsider being able to buy online at least!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elizabeth from Bring Dark Chocolate Back!!!!!! Only flavor I have purchased since it came out. Surpasses all the others. Very disappointed. I won't drink the other flavors---too sweet, but this was perfect. My ratings apply only to dark chocolate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by senior from Best chocolate flavor Great taste and had my daughter send the dark chocolate for my birthday. But somebody must have found out that I really like it - and now I can't find a place that sells it any more.

PLEASE consider bringing it back! I've never seen Dark Chocolate before, but after reading the reviews and seeing that it has also been discontinued, I hope it comes back as well. Please listen to your customers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TXMar12 from Love the Classic Chocolate Malt flavor!! I grew up drinking Classic Chocolate Malt and now get it for my kids. When I stopped seeing it in the grocery store I started buying it by the case for my kids (and my dad!) but now it doesn't seem to be available. Please bring it back!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Alysia4848 from Better than chocolate milk with syrup [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My kids seem to always be asking for chocolate milk please! I wanted to find something alittle heathier so I'm not giving them chocolate syrup for breakfast. The Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powdered drink mix tastes great and its convenient and easy for travel. I can buy the packets and while we're out and about, grab a jug of milk and mix it right in. I feel better giving my kids something that has protein instead of empty calories. It's a nice treat! Now, if you grab the chocolate syrup in my house you will hear "No MOM, not that kind!". Even mom and dad are drinking "chocolate milk" these days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eric wild from Best flavor I can’t believe your discontinuing classic chocolate malt!!! You say the demand isn’t high enough to continue manufacturing. Yet it was always out of stock everywhere. I bought 15 boxes a month.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andieg from The only flavor I drink. I drink at least one dark chocolate instant breakfast a day, it’s my absolute favorite! Please reconsider discontinuing this flavor - literally the only kind I like and the flavor is far superior to the milk chocolate variety.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gigi from The only one for me! This is the best out there! It's not too sweet as most others seem to be. I have a medical issue and soooooo many foods make me sick to my stomach therefore a LOT of my nutrients came from carnation dark chocolate mix. I really dont know what to do as there was no forewarning of the discontinuance and it was the only flavor I care for.
