I have. They are just ok. The chocalate is the best flavor.I MUCH prefer the Atkins shakes.The vanilla is to die for. The milk choc.is good. Strawberry is good. If I were you I would buy the atkins brand.

Thanks, I've never had the Atkins either. I may break down this weekend and give one a try.

I used this product but found that for some reason it is hard to find in my area?? I prefer Atkins Shakes...they are more rich and creamy.

WOE: thru my mouth
LC Slim Fast has been around for years. Or at least WAS around, went away and apparently is back again. I never liked the taste and they never filled me up enough. Id rather have a homemade eggcream that I can control what is going into it.

There are MANY different ways to make one. If you do an "advanced search" and only title threads using "egg cream" you will get lots of threads and recipes.

I Personally make mine with 4-5 raw eggs, about an ounce of cream cheese, whatever DaVincis flavor I want that day,if Im doing pumpkin, i will add in some pumpkin, coconut oil and a splash of cream. Blend well.

I found the cans for $.69 at the 99 cent store. The chocolate are ok, but I have to "doctor" up the vanilla to make them drinkable.

I agree that the Atkins shakes are best. Next in taste is Glucerna, but they are not necessarily low carb.

My favorite low carb breakfast is a shake and coffee. I do not want anything heavy or greasy before my brain wakes up. I have a shake around 8:00 am, and it satisfies me until lunch. Your results may vary.

I hope this was helpful. Good luck!

BTW, my Walmart has the bonus 6-packs again, instead of the usual 4-packs. Check around for the bonus packs.

I drink all 3 ultra low carbs 'meal in a can' options. They can all be purchased at the grocery store and Sams.
EAS, Atkins and Slim Fast low carb.
I have them in my coffee in the morning.....it's a good sub for milk for me, and I really don't like eating right away in the morning so I get some protein burning, without skipping a meal.

I love the low carb Slim Fast. I've been drinking it for years. I think the Atkins shakes taste 'funny'.

I'm too nervous about all the sugar alcohols in the atkins shake. I personally have no problem with the Slim Fast shakes- they fill me up in the morning.

I have found the Slim Fast shakes again at Wal-Mart!! They say NEW next to them! I used to pick them up in random gas stations years ago and remember liking them! I bought the chocolate.

I tried the Atkin's ones a few weeks ago and- YUCK!

to each their own I guess!

I bought a 4-pack of the chocolate and have yet to "try" any. Don't want to drink one "just because"

I love them as well. It's funny that the LC Slim Fast Shakes have more protein (20 gr) compared to the regular ones (10 g). They do keep me full for hours. I've only been able to find the chocolates ones at WM.

Was out running errands today and brought along a chocolate slim fast shake. Very good! Also a decent cure for a dessert like chocolate shake.

I can't find these anywhere

Before the package change, I used these a lot and liked them. However, since the old inventory was cleared out at my local Winn Dixies, WM, etc., I have been unable to find the low carb version. When I do a search on the slim fast web site, there have been none delivered anywhere in my area. I loved these things and they were convenient when I had to run out the door, but needed to be sure to have something quick.

Anyone else having difficulty finding these? Online seems expensive.

I just recently started finding them again... I used to find them back when I first started low carbing in like 2005....

I hope they will get them in your area again soon!
