Just wondering :)

I have drank the chocolate .. taste just like slim-fast ..

but I didn't do the diet, I just had them for when I didn't want to eat breakfast or if I was craving chocolate milk, I could at least sneak in some nutrients drinker

Yep. Had one today as my *snack* I prefer the chocolate over the vanilla, but i still do both for variety. Not bad to me. I never had the Slimfast brand. Just make sure they are very cold! bigsmile

I don't use them often, but I actually think they taste BETTER than Slim Fast. But yes... very cold.

Yep...I agree with her!! I don't follow the plan, just use them as a snack or boost when I need something extra.

yeah, when I was on my externship at a hospital for school, I would take those with me instead of heading to the cafeteria for dinner. I lost 10 lbs in a month. =) And i didnt have them for every dinner, but most of the time i did.

I have the chocolate every morning for breakfast. DO NOT DRINK IT WARM>>>Ewww. I would rather get 12 can for the price of 6 Slimfast.. I use it some times for other meals when I am on the run but mostly just for breakfast. Love it

I'm a college student and I drink them on the go. They're really good, but be sure they're extremely cold, and also don't leave them half-finished in your car for any amount of time. They mold and smell after a few days.

I recommend buying a 12-pack of vanilla, a 12-pack of chocolate, and a 12-pack of strawberry all at once, and alternate drinking one every day. That way, you don't get bored.

I like them too. There's no way I could follow the Slim Fast plan without starving...but I try to replace 3-4 meals a week with the shakes.

Just switched to these and agree with someone above who said they taste a little better than Slim Fast, but mostly they're better because they're way cheaper. I follow the plan (finding it easy), though can't find all of the flavors where I live. Little too soon to talk about results, but I'd recommend them to anyone who sucks at cooking and doesn't want to worry about having to do it much.

I also have one every morning for breakfast - milk chocolate - I think the slim fast ones do taste better, but not worth the price difference. I do it more for convenience than for weight loss though. Oh...and the above posters were right - drink VERY cold.

I use one for breakfast and one for lunch and then have a nice supper when I return home from work. I drink the vanilla but only because I don't like chocolate. They are very reasonable in price. I also like that they have 670 mg of potassium.

I've had them in the past. I agree that they taste better than SlimFast. Never did the plan like some of the others. They're kind of a fall back if I'm on the road or something and need a snack that doesn't come from a drive-thru.

I used to drink them when they made the original formula. I don't like the Ultra formula at all. I wished they would go back to making the original formula. It was less chalky and tasted much better.

They taste like the slimfast ones, but I quit drinking them.

They are convenient, but they have so much sugar they would spike my blood sugar and I would end up hungry not too long after drinking one.

Now I usually grab almonds if I'm too busy to eat or something easy to carry around like that.

yes.. i like equate better but i think its cause the price is easier to
