I am a long time fan of Carnation Instant Breakfast Mix and when I came across a four pack of Carnation Breakfast Essentials Milk Chocolate Complete Nutritional Drink in the unrefrigerated breakfast nutritional drinks sections of my local favorite grocery store, I was delighted! I decided to purchase these, try them out and write a product review all about my personal experience with them. Here is what I discovered!
I bought one four individually bottled pack for a bit over six dollars. Yes, this product is quite pricey. If I had not been a Carnation Breakfast Instant Mix fan, I would never have tried this product, I must admit. This drink has many intriguing qualities. It is rich in protein, vitamins and minerals packed, calcium rich and B vitamins rich, also. That all sounded great to me. The lure of having this Instant Breakfast drink all ready prepared appealed to me. I could not wait to taste these!
When I tasted Carnation Breakfast Essentials Milk Chocolate Complete Nutritional Drink, I liked it. However, I have to say that this drink is not nearly as delicious as the instant breakfast mix mixed with milk, in my opinion. This drink is a bit too concentrated to me. Too much chocolate, too many vitamins, all packed in a small drink bottle. This drink needs more milk flavor, in my opinion. It is too chocalaty for me. And, don’t get me wrong, I love chocolate milk. This drink just overdid it, in my book. I rate these three stars out of five stars. I will not be buying these again, but I will be trying their french vanilla flavor of these. I am hoping that they are better tasting.
One bottle of these has 260 calories in it. 50 of those calories are from fat. One serving has 5 grams of total fat, 1.5 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 10 mg’s of cholesterol, 230 mg’s of sodium, 560 mg’s of potassium, 41 grams of total carbs, 1 gram of dietary fiber, 39 grams of sugars and 14 grams of protein. This nutritional drink has lots of vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E, K, calcium, iron, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folic acid, biotin, magnesium, zinc, copper and many others. It is power and energy packed, there is no denying. This product is manufactured for Nestle.
I liked trying Carnation Breakfast Essentials Milk Chocolate Complete Nutritional Drink and writing this product review all about it. It is vitamin rich and healthy, no doubt about it. It does have a few issues, in my opinion. The taste needs to equal the brand. Just saying. The rich milk flavor always made this product number one. It always will. More milk and less chocolate and vitamin taste, please. Still, this product is new and amazing. Worth a try!
