    I purchased this for my son because he was always skipping breakfast. He didn't really like it. The powder does not completely disolve in the milk. We even tried putting it in the blender. I tried it too but wouldn't buy it again.

    Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder Drink Mix is a good product for those busy days. It is delicious and creamy. Little goes a long way. Liked the individual packages.

    I was lucky enough to try the Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder Drink Mix for free for my honest review. I received the flavour chocolate and normally I am not a fan of chocolate but this chocolate drink is actually very tasty! My only problem with the drink mix is it doesn't always mix evenly, and it is very high in sugar.

    I received a box of the chocolate power to sample.
    It was unfortunate that the taste of this wasn't very good and tasted 'fake'. It also took quite a bit of effort to ensure all the powder was mixed; perhaps if I had one of those 'shaker' containers, it would have been easier, but not all of the powder dissolved.
    I certainly like the idea of instant breakfasts, but I wouldn't recommend this or purchase again

    I received this free as part of Chick Advisor's Product Review Club. I wouldn't buy this for myself. I find drinking a whole glass of milk in the morning leaves me feeling really heavy, but then hungry again just an hour or two later. The taste is kind of chalky and bland, and it doesn't really deliver on the promises it makes. The packaging leads you to believe that the powder is what contains all the protein and vitamins, but if you read the label, you're getting most of that from the milk. You'd get just as much benefit and better taste from drinking chocolate milk.

    I recieved this product free-to-try and although i found the flavor of the chocolate shake to be tadtefully good, i dint like how this didnt mix completely(even in my shaker cup)
    I prefer the premixed liquid as appose to powder.

    I like to make a quick breakfast and the carnation breakfast essentials fits the bill. It is easy to prepare (just add milk; I use almond milk ) and reminds me of the chocolate milk powder I drank as a kid but has the added bonus of being full of good things for me. I liked how it tasted but I wouldn't mind if the chocolate flavour was more pronounced. I plan on picking up another box next time I see this on sale.


    I received this product as a part of the product review club in exchange for review.

    I received Carnation breakfast Essentials powdered drink mix in chocolate to review for Chick Advisor.
    I was very excited to be able to try this product. I was looking for something different to change up my normal protein mix and thought this could replace it.
    After reviewing the product information, I was shocked as to how much sugars are in one single package, 21 grams of sugar! It's listed as the second ingredient.
    What I also found very misleading was the amount of protein. At first glance it looks as if the package is containing 15g of protein, however that is only when mix with 250ml of whole mix. So essentially the mix is just 7 grams of actual protein. Whole milk is not something I regularly purchase to mix with my protein supplements.
    Now for what I didn't mind about this product. It mixed well and dissolved instantly. It tasted like chocolate milk and wasn't lumpy or gross in texture.
    Would I use it again? Likely not because of the high sugar, low protein mix, and the misleading package information. Thankfully I read through the package in detail and found this out before ditching my tried and true protein supplement.

    I was given a free sample of Carnation Breakfast Essentials - Chocolate from the Chickadvisor review club.
    Overall, I thought it was a decent breakfast replacement.

    Pros:
    - Convenience is the big pro for me - easy breakfast that I can take on the go
    - Chocolate flavour was good, kinda tasted like regular powdered chocolate milk
    - Easy to toss a sachet in my bag and mix with milk later

    Cons:
    - I had some problems getting rid of all of the powdery lumps, and even when I made a conscious effort to get rid of them all some would elude me. Not yummy.
    - I am a big breakfast eater, so I was definitely hungry before lunch and needed snacks.
