Rated 1 out of 5 by from Undrinkable gunk I bought this for my mom who is diabetic but the product was full of gunk inside and undrinkable. It has formed inside the bottle. It’s not even expired which has a date of March 1, 2025

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot chocolate! yum! my favorite thing to do is microwave the chocolate flavor in a mug and make hot chocolate! it is SO good! I am NOT diabetic. I am not even overweight. I just love my sweets and love finding healthier alternatives and this chocolate hunger smart glucerna is a nice treat for me when I'm in the chocolate mood! I have also frozen chocolate glucenera in ice cube trays to put in my yonanas to make frozen ice cream subsitute chocolate desserts. anyway, i do appreciate that this dessert beverage does have a good nutritional profile and does help with staying full longer unlike most other dessert options. i always feel very satisfied becuase it tasts so good and I feel happily full afterwards. this drink was also very helpful for me when I was studying and working late and long shifts. far more delicious than other chocolate protein or health drinks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Morning Staple, Not just for Diabetics! I was a gestational diabetic with all of my pregnancies. There wasn’t anything I could find that didn’t send my sugar sky high at breakfast, that I could manage to eat with morning sickness. On my OBGYNs suggestion, I tried a Glucerna and I loved the way it tasted. Best part, my sugar stayed level. That was over 15 years ago, and I still drink Glucerna every single morning. I am not a diabetic. I just love the taste, and the way it makes me feel. It’s also a super quick way to have a healthy start for the day or keep from missing a meal when I’m super busy. I tell all my busy friends about Glucerna, wether they are diabetic or not. It’s great nutrition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for breakfast I tried the chocolate smart shake and the vanilla shake. They both tasted good. I’ve been having trouble sleeping and have no energy in the morning to make breakfast. I had been eating those frozen breakfast sandwiches and they are not good for my blood sugar levels or my cholesterol. They shoot my blood sugar way too high. I bought a case of the chocolate smart meal shakes for breakfast and it is actually cheaper to get the shakes by the case rather than get a package of breakfast sandwiches for the month. The shakes help keep my blood sugar down and are healthier than the sandwiches. They are also satiating and I don’t feel hungry so soon after eating. Thanks for making this product!
