I love them. I have two of the chocolate shakes for breakfast almost every day. I find it easy to not overate at breakfast and they seem to be nutritionally well balanced.

In addition they taste great chilled.

I like the strawberry and vanilla shakes and the meal bars. I use them when I need to eat something and want something fast and easy.

I like the products and try to keep shakes on hand to take when I am going to be out running the roads and might not be able to get anything to eat during snack time. I don't use the bigger meal replacement ones as I usually can find a healthy salad. The bars are good as well. It is a great line of products!

Glad you found something that works for you! The nice thing about GlucernaŽ products is that they are specifically designed for diabetics. They contain carbohydrates that are slowly digested to help minimize blood sugar spikes. In studies of people with diabetes, Glucerna products have been shown to produce a lower blood glucose response compared to standard nutritional beverages and bars. Whatever you choose, be sure it works for you and your body. ~Laura @Glucerna

I have eaten lots of the Glucerna bars. They are ok, but I like the taste of others better (Slimfast). I couldn't see they made a difference in by blood sugar spike after eating them.

Love the shakes as they are a staple in my life! I drink one as a snack or as breakfast. If I can not fit in a meal where I am supposed to I also have one on hand just in case. I have not tried any of the other glucerna products as of yet.

Hi Joan_of_Spark. We're glad you (and your husband!) like our mini snack bars. As you said, they are perfect for an on-the-go snack. Thanks for sharing your favorite flavors! What do you like to have the Cinnamon Buns bars with? ~Drew@Glucerna

Got my Glucerna bars....not bad at all. My DH certainly loves them. *grin* I got the oatmeal raisin which I really like, the chocolate peanut, which is all right, but nothing special but it does give me the chocolate that I love. and Cinnamon Buns flavor which is great for a morning snack or just to add to my existing breakfast especially if I am in a rush. I got the mini-snack bars, so even if I eat two, it is still only 140 cals, cause they are 70 cals each. They are tiny, but then they are "mini' snack bars.....*grin* Might be great to carry in your purse if you are out, and have no time to eat....or if you are traveling, not to take the place of a meal but for snacks, with some form of protein.

I liked the chocolate shake. I usually use my treadmill during my lunch break so it came right on time as a power boost/meal after my workout. I don't have time to prepare lunch and use the treadmill so this is a good substitute for me.
