I love the breakfast essential shakes, i just HATE the powder form of it. In my personal experience, no matter how well you mix it, there is always going to be chunks of the powder left. Also whatever you put it in becomes difficult to clean due to leftover product solidifying and become chunky as soon as 5 minutes after you finish drinking. I would not recommend, just get the shakes that are already made.

These are great tasting and a good start for nutrients in your day. I like the powder version because you can choose what liquid you mix with it...dairy, soy, coconut milk, etc. Part of the great taste is due to a higher sugar content, but check the nutritional values of anything you want to use as a meal replacement.

My husband got me drinking these.  I like to make the smoothie receipe that is on the packets. It's super quick and easy. Also keeps me full till lun h time. It tastes amazing and would recommend this to anyone that's a busy person.

This tastes so great with almond milk. It literally tastes like a chocolate milkshake without being too sweet. It's very filling as well. I like to keep these in my desk at work if I don't have time for lunch or not hungry for a huge meal. best thing since sliced bread! xox

So delicious, and a quick and easy way to fill up and get the nutrients you need. Sam’s Club sells 2 pound containers of the powder mix for about 9 bucks, so worth it if you drink multiple a day like I do.

Carnation brings back sweet memories of my childhood. I used to drink this everyday before school because it makes a good meal replacement shake to tide me over until lunch. Now that I'm older I don't drink it as often but when I do, the taste remains as tasty as ever. Some complain that the powder never quite dissolves, but I find this type of drink works best in a shaker bottle.

I am not satisfied with this product. I think it is nice that it has a lot of vitamins and there is some protein in this, but there is nineteen grams of sugar in this per serving. If you're actually wanting to be healthy, this is not a good thing to incorporate into your diet. It is also bad for your teeth. I don't recommend buying this.

Chocolate is all I have to say, every morning I make a glass and carry on with my day. It’s easy to make, I bought it from Walmart. It’s got a great taste, like chocolate milk.

This is a regular staple in my house. As the mother to a child who refuses to eat much of anything in the morning, this is a great alternative. I know she’s getting nutrition she would otherwise be skipping, in a fast convenient way.  Carnation Breakfast Essentials Rich Milk Chocolate Complete Nutritional Drink

Really good! I purchase this for my brother and he loves it. He likes skipping breakfast but with this he’ll make for himself and will enjoy it before heading out the door.
