I have used this product for 20 years, 5 days a week. My only complaint is that I am disappointed that the manufacturer has gone to smaller containers, vs larger ones. Smaller containers means more waste of packaging. Please produce in larger canisters. Why not one 14 oz vs two 7 oz.

I was very disappointed when Carnation repackaged the No Sugar Chocolate Instant Breakfast in a smaller, hard- to- get- a -scoop- into -package! With fewer servings. Not. Those of us who buy this in quantity want a large quantity!! That's the whole point. I've been eating this daily for over 20 years, maybe more, and I was delighted when they first came out with the cylindrical package -- less packaging, less wasted paper, easier access to the product. It still tastes very good, but I really want Carnation to know I DON'T like the packaging.

Great item and price --- Poor Packaging!

By Big Gram Vader

from Phoenix, Az

Comments about Carnation Breakfast Essentials Complete Nutritional Drink, No Sugar Added, Powdered, Rich Milk Chocolate, 7.05 oz:

My local stores dont carry the powder, only the pre made drinks. Drugstore.com has it for a great price, no tax (for me at least) and can typically get free shipping. Would love if they made bigger ones like the sugar added version.

Packaging is quite weak and tends to open easily. be careful when ordering with heavier items.

          I have been drinking this every morning for years. It tastes good and starts my day off right.

          I don't like how this is packaged now. The top doesn't fit as well and is a problem for storage after it's been opened. Also, I've ordered it a couple times online and only had a shipping issue once, but when I did, what a mess! I ordered multiple packages. The two containers on each end of the box had gotten squished, the foil came loose, the top popped off, and there was sticky powder all over everything else in the box.

          Drugstore website issued a prompt refund for the damaged items, but still a problem for the other products which were left forever sticky.

            I have used this product for over six years. I had two containers open when I received my package. They did replace one, the other I just found this morning. I am not pleased with the new container and the smaller amount of product. Why not go with with a larger package?

            The new packaging is POOR. Less amount for the same price as the larger, better packaged product they used to have. Does not ship well. My last 2 shipments have had the lids and protective seal come off. Drugstore has replaced the product that was open when it shipped but it is still not a positive experience.
