Good variety, flavors and value

From: Lilli | Jul 31, 2022

I love the convenience of these drinks. I also use the higher protein versions and would like to see that option in strawberry.

new formula is awful

From: J_62e5674440395 | Jul 30, 2022

I have been drinking Light Start for years. The new formula is thick and bland, much less of a chocolate flavor. At first I thought it was me. After the second morning I looked at the box and saw that they have not only changed the box, but also the flavor. New Look, Great Taste. Not same great taste. Ugh.

Special Needs GiGi

From: Mona_62e428426c03a | Jul 29, 2022

Pediasure is all my granddaughter takes since she's special needs. Since the national shortage, can no longer find berry flavored. Tried Carnation Mixed Berries and she's tolerating very well. Her GI clinic is ok with it as the caloric intake is similar.

No light start?

From: | Jul 17, 2022

Can NO longer find the powder locally. Don't want premade. They've already stopped making my vanilla. Tried to order from this site and says ONLY 1 box left. Other sites are way overpriced usually by a few $.

Love it

From: Angela | Jun 22, 2022

The carnation lite taste good and I have I incorporated into my daily diet. It gives me energy and curves my appetite.

Great for dinner

From: Cindy_628bbf7db164c | May 23, 2022

I have this everyday for my dinner, along with some banana nut bread. It satisfies me completely. I love the flavor and the ease of making.

New Box, New Taste

From: Greg Hall | May 18, 2022

The Box style I won't comment However the new taste, that I will comment on. The old flavor was definitely a rich chocolate taste. It has gone chalky and definitely not rich. Not nearly as enjoyable as before. I do not appreciate the formula change.

Almost every day

From: Carol_6261341bd4851 | Apr 21, 2022

I've drank instant breakfast ever since the 1960's. I'm in my 70's now and still drink it. My all time favorite is the chocolate BUT now I really like the strawberry. I mix it with fresh strawberries and banana. OMG it's the best. Actually I love all of them. :)

My Wife's Go to

From: THOMAS_62609b582d4b7 | Apr 20, 2022

This kept my wife alive during Chemo. Made her a breakfast almost everyday with a banana and 2% milk. Started this breakfast when she was at her lowest 89 Lbs. to a normal weight. We still do this breakfast everyday.
