Light start

From: | Jan 21, 2022

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.

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 !!!

Taste like vitamins

From: Wmollica | Oct 23, 2020

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I did not like this. I was gritty and it tasted like vitamins no matter what I did. It did not taste like a milk shake or thick milk, but it gave me an aftertaste. I will not buy this again. It was disturbingly gross.

Ehh

From: Shebulee | Oct 13, 2020

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I recently tried the Carnation Breakfast Essentials Ready to Drink Mixed Berry drink, and I personally didn't like it that much. The mixed berry flavor was okay, but the consistency of the drink was just a little too thick for my liking.

Tastes good

From: Mikaela104 | Oct 13, 2020

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The carnation breakfast drink surprised me! I thought it wasn't going to taste very good because a lot of protein and breakfast drink don't but these actually tasted pretty good. I wouldn't mind drinking one of these in the morning.
