Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes great [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I drink quick shakes as a replacement for breakfast several times a week. I love the easy on-the-go options that are available. This week I decided to try Carnation breakfast essentials cookies and cream and I'm pretty happy with the taste. It made me feel full well into the early afternoon and gave me the energy I needed to complete my morning tasks. It tastes just like a cookies and cream milkshake and it is super convenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’m a fan of Carnation Breakfast already but was extremely excited to try the cookies and cream flavor. I like it’s smooth consistency and I love that my kids are getting the nutrients they need. I also didn’t have to fight them to having something before dashing out the door. They actually like drinking it. I’m assuming cookie and cream is the appealing part! We’ve since bought this several times from our local store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Taste! I have an Autoimmune Disease called Behcet's Disease. Sometimes I don't feel like eating or I think that I should have something more substantial and I reach for my Breakfast Essential in Creamy Strawberry. I actually crave the wonderful taste. I can't thank you enough for coming up with a great tasting product for someone like myself. I just wish that it came in larger bottles. I already have recommended this product to anyone, everywhere. Thank you so much again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious and full of nutrients I had the mixed berry flavor and it’s pretty good! It’s 8 oz and a quick and easy drink. I don’t always eat breakfast so this is a good way to get in some additional nutrients in when I’m slacking. The flavor is good and not too over powering. It has calcium, protein, vitamin C and a bunch of other vitamins packed in. I think this is a great addition if you are also slacking on some needed nutrients like I am, and would be great for kids who are picky eaters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FAST & EASY BREAKFAST I am so glad that I had this in my refrigerator. We just experienced a Derecho last week no electricity and no Internet. Luckily I had this breakfast essential in my refrigerator so I had something to take a.k.a. eat for breakfast. I had the Mixed Berry very Flavorful know terrible aftertaste. After drinking had some energy to complete cleanup from the terrible storm. Good to have on hand because you never know when you will have an emergency situation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On the go breakfast! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am not a great "breakfast" person early in the morning. I just can't stomach it. That is where Carnation Breakfast Essentials comes in really handy. I recently got the Classic French Vanilla flavor to try. I grabbed it one morning as I went out the door..Shook it up, drank it down...it was so delicious and filling. No nasty aftertaste. This will definately become a part of my morning routine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from try the Cookies N' Creme [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had to prepare for summer. My children are the type who wake up ready to go. My kids can go from sleep to fully dressed in the yard in 5 minutes flat. They don't seem to have time for a bowl of cereal and a cup of juice so I had to try something to get them through summertime with a healthy nutritional start to the day. These drinks are easy. They grab one on the way out and you feel less guilty. The cap can be put back on if you have one of those slow drinkers. We have only had the cookies n' creme flavor, which they love, but next run I plan to try strawberry. I've read the nutritional facts. Is it the most healthy way to start the day for children? Probably not. Will they drink it? Yes. Is it better than not eating breakfast? YES! Convenience coupled with the good price I call it a Win.

I love how handy it is to drink on the go. I can just grab one in the morning and be on my way. I actually like the flavor and how there is no gross aftertaste. I love the fact that something that is good for you actually tastes good. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a great tasting beverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yumminess on the go! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This breakfast on the go is amazing! I’m always in a rush in the early morning commuting life and this shake helps me to keep a balanced out day. I never have time for breakfast anymore and that being the most important meal of day can be a problem. I believe I have the solution to that problem. Having one of these in the morning does my body good and I’m ready to start my day !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dietary aid I've been using this for a few years. I struggle to eat enough in a day (physical issue), and this drink has been a staple in getting me the nutrition I need in a day. Mixed in with whole milk it fills my stomach and elevates a large portion of the hunger pains, nausea and exhaustion. Mixed with coffee and a little creamer it makes an amazing mocha breakfast. I am greatful there's a great tasting option to get my nutrition!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son LOVES this! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been purchasing the powder form of this for a long time for my son. He is 13 and has very poor eating habits so I thought I could supplement it some by giving him Breakfast Essentials. The powder itself is good enough for him but the ready to drink is perfection and so much neater Lol. Yes, we will be purchasing this product as long as they make it. We love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Alternative for Breakfast The mixed berry flavor is good, but it had a little bit of an aftertaste to me. My husband really liked it, and said the flavor was on point for mixed berry. It's a great alternative option for breakfast or another meal if you're in a hurry or just looking for something simple. I like that it has 10g of protein and only 24p calories. I also appreciated the size and ease of grab and go. Definitely plan on getting more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes Great! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I actually enjoyed this breakfast drink! It was creamy, smooth, sweet and the perfect size to drink in the mornings when you're rushing out on a busy day. I felt satisfied after drinking this and I usually drink it on days where I have no time to make breakfast. My husband even likes it and packs one for when he doesn't have time at work to eat a full lunch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the berry taste This is a very yummy drink to start the morning off right. Usually, most things that are good for you taste pretty bad at least in my opinion but this has a great sweet taste of berries and it goes down smooth. I love that it has protein and vitamins and enough Vitamin C to help your immune system throughout the day. I only wish the bottle contained more of the yummy product. I can definitely recommend this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastey breakfast on the go! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great breakfast substitute for busy moms on the go, like myself. It is not too sweet and it helps keep hunger down after not having a full breakfast. The serving size is the perfect amount. The flavor Is very quenchable and it tastes amazing, there is no comparison just that it tastes wonderful ! I give this flavor of breakfast essentials an A+

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breakfast Believer I never believed breakfast could give me the energy to make it to my lunch break after teaching 18 preschoolers, but Carnation has made me a believer! The chocolate taste satisfies my sweet tooth but gives me the nutrition to power through my busy day without any problem! Awesome choice for busy people and I would recommend this product to anyone and everyone! Keep the great products coming Carnation!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fills you up This doesn't taste chalky nor grainy as other drinks such as this can. However, it does have stevia which makes it taste a bit off, hence the 3 stars. It is convenient for on the go though, or just a quick fill up. I go to work early in the morning and never have time for breakfast, then I dont get lunch so I end up cranky. This definitely helps with that. Ill take the off taste for the fill up I get.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delicious and filling I have such a weakness for carbs, and bagels are my idea of a filling breakfast on a work day. I’ve been trying to eat healthier lately and cutting the carb filled breakfasts seemed a good place to start. I haven’t had these in a long time but they are just as good as I remember them being. I had a mixed berry this morning and it was sweet and filling. I look forward to enjoying them on my ride to work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great to take anywhere [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This easy to travel with bottle provides you with 10g protein and 240 calories. It’s the ultimate meal replacement drink for busy people. Sometimes I just don’t have a cup or the time to mix their original powder mix, so the ready to drink bottle form suites me better. I do taste a slight after taste in my mouth after drinking but nothing overbearing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from tasty and nutritious breakfast drink [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I always love the ready to drink breakfast drink because they're convenient and nutritious. I'm usually very busy in the morning so having a grab on the go drink that is tasty and good for my health is important. The chocolate flavor is rich but it's kind of too sweet for my taste. I wish they could be a little bit less sweet then it'll be perfect!

Theres no artifical flavors, colors or sweeteners. I would recommend this drink for anyone.
