These are great for occassionally supplementing breakfast. They taste great almost like a milkshake. They do offer some nutritional value and some protein but not as a complete meal supplement.
I have loved this stuff since the first time I stared in disbelief as I was handed a rich chocolaty shake for my breakfast. It is great just mixed with milk, but there are recipes on the packages which are also great. One of my favourites is to toss the chocolate flavour in a blender with some bananas, strawberries, milk and ice.
Quite a few years back I was losing weight for reasons that couldn't be explained. My doctor advised me to drink one of these every day in addition to my regular meals for extra calories and vitamins. It was a delicious solution :)
I love the taste of these. I like to give them to my picky son when he hasn't had many good things to eat in a bit ( picky eater). The chocolate is the best one. I like that it has all the vitamins and minerals needed so it's a nice meal replacement however it isn't majorly heathy and has some sugar in it.
I have really started drinking this as part of my get healthy and lose a little weight plan. My problem is that I literally had been eating one meal a day, usually around 10 at night. I am an evening employee, slept until mid morning, drank coffee, maybe snacked a little mid-afternoon, and then went to work. I would eat on getting home. I have started to have a glass every morning, it's about all I can stomach at that time, and it has been helping to start my metabolism properly, and is full of nutrients. A lot of sugar, for sure, so if you are trying to cut down on sugar this is not for you. It tastes great, easy to digest, and I feel more energetic earlier in the day.
I had to drink this after a surgery once and it was not satisfying at all. It was clumpy and didn't mix well with milk at all. The taste was a bit too sweet for me and it gave me gas. Overall, try it it might actually benefit you but it didn't do much for me.
I'm sure that these do have some beneficial vitamins and minerals in them but they are also loaded with sugar and taste too sweet to me. The flavors also taste really artificial. I just don't like them.
this is not for me . tastes like minerals and really heavy on the stomach ...i left a bad after taste that lasted for hrs..... maybe they have improved it over the years ...im not sure but its to expensive to try and still not like it....it has been 10 years since i have tried this....
I have really enjoyed this in the past. I have only tried the chocolate, but I am sure that the other flavours are just as good. Kind of like a mix between ovaltine and nesquik. The nutrition is decent but what has stopped me from buying it too often is the sugar content. I can't justify all that sugar.
I used to drink these every morning for breakfast. I can remember how awake, alert and full I felt after finishing it. If you got the mix, it was super easy to make up before school of work. The pre made drinks were just an added convinence.. Fantastic for when you're running late or just don't have time. They taste amazing.. chocolate and strawberry were my favourites! They weren't too badly priced either! Definitely worth the purchase! Excellent for busy lifestyle, early morning school/work, picky eaters, or people like me who just can't eat first thing in the morning.
I had this once years ago and never again. The taste was good but it was too heavy for me to have first thing in the morning. My tummy just couldn't handle it :(
