Good replacement for Ensure

My mother use to buy Ensure nutritional drinks to maintain her health but stopped because they were so expensive. I began looking for a suitable alternative and found that these Equate drinks have the same ingredients as Ensure and she says they taste the same so these Equates appear to be a good replacement for Ensure at a more economical price.


More Watery and Odd Tasting Than Ensure Products

When I had corrective jaw surgery, I thought I'd save a couple of bucks by purchasing these shakes rather than the Ensure brand. I found these shakes were waterier than the Ensure products and had an odd taste to them, almost like they had a hint of coconut, although I couldn't quite put my finger on it. Maybe I had just grown fond of the Ensure brand, which I thought were surprisingly good tasting. I found it difficult to choke down he Equate brand. Once I finished the pack, I went back to using Ensure. Some may like the taste and texture of the Equate brand, but it just wasn't for me.


"Easy to open" top is not "easy to open"

"Easy to open" plastic wrap on top of bottle is IMPOSSIBLE to open. Have to use a pair of scissors to even start removing the plastic wrap. So, I have to take a pair of scissors with me wherever I go so that I can open this? Whomever boasted on the package that this is "easy to open" obviously never tried to open it.


Calories dont match

your description says 350 calories. Ordered 10 of each (strawberry and Vanilla) thinking as you described they were 350 calories on arrival they were 250 calories.


Great tasting

The Walmart Equate Nutritional Shakes are at least $1.00 cheaper than Ensure which has the same ingredients and I think they taste better.
