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.

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.

Great easy breakfast!

From: Scarlett | Mar 18, 2022

Honestly, I've had Carnation Instant Breakfast every day since I was in elementary school, unless I'm on vacation, I'll be 63 next week. The Light Start is really very good.

Carnation Breakfast Essentials Light Start

From: Sue_61fee0b74c540 | Feb 05, 2022

I have used this protein supplement for about a year. It is a quick & easy to mix as a source of protein for me since I am not a big meat eater. It is flavorful & rich tasting. I have recommended it to several friends to use. My only issue is that it is not available in my area and I need to order from the company so I usually order a large mount at a time.

51 years of satisfaction!

From: Gloria_61faa93cece0d | Feb 02, 2022

I've used this since I was a teenager and had a gastric bypass in 2005 and was told by the nutrionalist that this brand was a good source of protein. It originally came in cannisters whick I prefer, that way if I want to heap a scoop I can. There is no aftertaste like so many sugar free products. I'd recomment this to anyone who wants to loose weight or get good protein!!!!

Been buying this for many years but can no longer find in stores. As previously noted, the high sugar content of the other varieties makes them unhealthy for seniors. Please start stocking stores!

Keeping me healthy.

From: CMck by | Jan 15, 2022

I’ve been enjoying “Light” Breakfast Essentials (chocolate) for well over 10 years. Lately, it has been difficult to find in grocery stores and had to go without “my breakfast” for a few weeks, and started gaining weight. I need to be careful with my sugar intake. Luckily, I went to the source and found it…delivery was quick and once again I’m feeling better by not having to worry about too much sugar intake and eating other breakfast items that normally are restricted.

My Wife's Go to

From: THOMAS_61d0f586e812f | Jan 02, 2022

This was my wife's go to breakfast during her Breast Cancer treatment. The chemo made her very sick and CBE with Blue cap milk was the one drink that helped slowed her weight loss and most certainly helped with her weight gained back to normal weight. Now if I have less than 30 packets of CBE I order another 120. CBE is our go to Breakfast !!!
