I always thought that ensures were for sick and old people but I was definitely wrong. I'm 23 and I keep these on the shelf for the days when I'm too busy to cook. I wouldn't live off of these but 1 out of 3 meals doesn't hurt. I think it's way more nutritious than getting fast food and it the taste is far better than I originally expected. Also, it's nice to have on hand when you are sick. I drink it when I have a sore throat as solid foods take forever to swallow (and it hurts too!).

I hate that I am forced to use Ensure - but I am greatful it is available. I had several surgeries and have one more coming up in 3 weeks. I have lost 30 lbs and can feel my bones. Food just doesn't taste good right now and I can barely eat. Since I have started drinking Ensure - I have gained back 3.5 lbs and feel much better.

Flavor Name: Milk ChocolateSize: Pack of 16Package Type: Standard Packaging
When a family member was extremely ill, they started losing rate rapidly. The doctor told me I had to try to get them to gain weight. I remember an episode when I was very underweight, and the doctor gave me Ensure, over 25 years ago! So, I thought I would try it again.

The product shipped overnight which was a real surprise! The family member, who is older and frail was a tough sell on the product. However, soon she saw results with the chocolate and strawberry being her favorite. She now drinks two a day. After two months she gained ten pounds! I have them on auto shipment and I am very happy with the product.

I bought these on July 5, 2014. And I won't be buying them again. I've been drinking Ensure and Boost for a long time in my muscle building. The new formula has 30% less sugar, but added artificial sweeteners to replace it. They decreased the sugar, but they added ACESULFAME POTTASIUM and SUCRALOSE, which are both artificial sweeteners. These were never in past formulas. I read all labels and avoid all artificial sugars due to the health risks. And with these new formulas, I'm noticing a weird taste and aftertaste now, most likely due to the artifical sugars. I don't drink any diet drinks or anything with sweeteners, so I noticed the odd taste instantly.

The original Ensure had good taste and provided good nutrition. The new formula is not good because of the taste, but it still provides good nutrition as a supplement. If you don't read labels and don't mind artificial sugars, then you probably won't mind the new taste. But for others who do care, it is noticeable. SOme of the Ensure are labeled with 30% less sugar, and others are not labeled, but still contain the new formula. I'm going to use Boost instead since their current formula doesn't contain artificial sugars.

Beyond the artificial sugar, if you don't mind it, it's a good deal to buy in a bulk pack, and the bottles are small and convenient enough to be taken anywhere. You can drink it as a meal replacement, but you will be hungry an hour later. I take it as a supplement with my workout routine. I will drink it a half hour before my workout, then a separate protein powder during, and then another Ensure the morning after my workout. It has provided excellent nutrition for my body, helps build muscle, and one additional effect that I've noticed is that my nails are growing much more healthier.

For the Dark Chocolate flavor, it has the artificial sweeteners and red food coloring. Not sure why you need it. The Milk Chocolate flavor has the sweeteners, but no food coloring.

Kept me going after my stroke. I couldn't eat. Everything had a terrible taste. It took about four four months before I could eat regular food again. I lived on Ensure all that time and it gave me all the nutrition and strength I needed to keep going. I still use the chocolate Ensure every day.

I think this is a great product. I use it as a nutritional meal replacement/snack. It contains a little bit of everything to keep me going when I don't have time to eat a well balanced meal, and on top of it all it tastes great. This shake is a great way to "eat" something healthy and stay fueled when you're on the go... good value, good flavor, good nutrition. There really isn't anything negative I could say about this product. Perhaps one could complain about too many calories coming in the form of sugars, but for my purposes the extra carbs only add to the "well-balanced" formula.

My father recently became paralyzed from the chest down, and he has begun wasting away. I decided to order Ensure to supplement nutrients that he seriously needs. He told me he wanted the vanilla flavor, and I was concerned because of some of the other reviews. It arrived and he tried it. That was a month ago. Recently, he let me know that his supply was getting low, and he'd like me to order more. I asked if he wanted the same flavor, and he said that he loves the vanilla. He drinks at least one every day. Now, it is expensive, but if it is giving him the nourishment that he needs, I'm all for it. If you love vanilla, don't be spooked by the other reviews. Give it a try for yourself.
