Nutritional Information


Too inconsistent for me

From: | Jun 03, 2021

Yet another great product ruined by corporate greed and cutting corners. Inconsistent quality. One box, doesn't mix well Next box, perfect in flavor and mixability. The next box? Taste EXACTLY like powered peanut butter! LAST 3 BOXES taste like PB!!!


It is amazing.

From: AJ Chaps | Mar 12, 2021

It has a lot of sugar in it but that’s why it’s so tasty. The most amazing thing about it is that it makes me go. I’ve tried everything under the sun to help my digestive track moving & I found it with this breakfast drink ☺️


Great product.

From: James | Jan 29, 2021

I have been mixing this with my coffee every morning for 2 years to give me the energy to get through my work day. The only problem is latly it has been getting harder and harder to find. Please tell me this product is not being retired.


Best Taste!!!

From: handyman1050 | Oct 04, 2020

I have used this since I was 9 years old. I am 58 now and I still drink the "High Protein" EVERY DAY!!! That's how good it tastes and work's!!! But I would like to see coupons out there?!


Great product!

Ok Drink Mix

From: Devleyez | Aug 17, 2020

I tried the sample as a breakfast drink mix. I honestly thought the flavor was OK but had a weird aftertaste. It did keep me full for a while.

Great item

From: Justin | Apr 16, 2020

I've been buying this for years to add calories to my son's formula. Can take anywhere on the go. Great help.


The better alternative to boost or ensure

From: BadBrad | Mar 01, 2020

I was diagnosed with laryngeal cancer and was told boost or ensure was great for calories and protein the problem there both expensive and they don’t taste good. I always liked carnation instant breakfast mix especially strawberry when I saw the protein mix I had to try the only problem is you don’t have it in strawberry and I substitute whole milk instead. I’ve added freash fruit and ice cream the combinations are unlimited


Great taste, really!!!

From: Chris | Feb 20, 2020

I have not tasted a protein based drink that tastes so good! I really don’t enjoy any protein powders but this one is really good! I haven’t tried the vanilla yet but I have high hopes!!!


Protein enriched

From: ConnieW | Dec 15, 2019

Not all stores I live near have this product, so why not order on line? So handy and easy to do. My husband was referred by one of his doctors to take this while he was having chemo and raditation to keep nutrition up. But we will keep it around all the time!!
