New Recipe is Terrible

From: | Aug 09, 2022

The new recipe is sooooo bad. ITS GRAINY, WONT MIX EVER, and TASTES LIKE GENERIC SWEETNLOW WAS ADDED. YUCK!!! It taste like that chalky looking chunk of fake chocolate on the package.

"IMPROVED RECIPE" IS AWFUL

From: | Aug 09, 2022

"Improved" recipe is so bad I can't even drink it. It doesn't mix no matter how hard you stir it, it tastes awful, like a fake Splenda taste, ugh and if you happen to use more than one serving at a time ur STOMACH WILL GO INTO KNOTS. JUST AWFUL

So good

From: Michelle Hollohan | Aug 08, 2022

People are complaining about it not mixing right. I, for years, have doubled the milk and it tastes amazing and mixes super well.

Recommend!

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.

Recommend!

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.

Recommend!

Great tasting

From: Slick | Jul 26, 2022

I get these all the time , I like them better than the others.

Doesn't Mix!

From: James Wentz | Jul 15, 2022

I was a big fan of Instant Breakfast back in the day. I bought this stuff, hoping that it was as good. The problem is it doesn't mix into my milk! It just sits in a clump at the bottom. Very disappointing

The new formula tastes awful

From: Cynthia Canepa | Jun 24, 2022

I have been drinking this for many years, but sadly will not be drinking it anymore. The new formula is very bland and salty. There is no chocolate flavor to it.

Recommend!

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.
