    Sep 23, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It is a complete and balance source of nutrition
    Cons: it is expensive

    Summary: This is a product that most of us probably have heard of one time or another. I have had experience with this product as a supplement for the elderly patients in the nursing home in which I worked. It was used often as a between meal supplement or for ... read more

    Aug 1, 2007 by

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Flavour, convenience, variety, health benefits.
    Cons: I wish there was more than just 235mL of this tasty drink.

    Summary: I made the mistake of originally drinking Ensure at room temperature; thinking it wouldn't matter if it was hot, cold or luke warm. I'm here to tell you now: I was mistaken. The taste, when at room temperature, especially in a can and not a plastic ... read more

  • Ensure: It's good for you...and it tastes great, too!

    Jan 13, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great nutritional supplement and great taste.
    Cons: Pretty pricey; I can't afford to drink one a day.

    Summary: "If it's supposed to be good for you, it can't taste too good." As a relatively healthy 40-something-year-old guy, I have become a bit more actively involved in taking care of myself. I have been walking at least once a day for the past 10 ... read more

    Nov 22, 2004 by

    Pros: Taste isn't bad; better than not eating a meal
    Cons: Somewhat expensive

    Summary: I often go without breakfast and lunch and, as a result, feel famished and lethargic by the time I get home from work. I decided to try Ensure (chocolate), though most of my previous connections to it had been through deliveries to the elderly from my ... read more

    Pros: Quick, easy & healthy
    Cons: A little pricey!

    Summary: I bought an Ensure 6-pack for the first time as a 'gag gift' for a friend of mine who was having a not-so-young birthday party. I ended up with a few extra bottles and tried it. WOW! I loved it! It said to chill it for the best taste, but I didn't ... read more

    Cons: Can be expensive

    Summary: First of all, I am 16 years old. I have been drinking Ensure for over a year. I drink two a day, with meals. I have found it to be VERY helpful. Ensure is helpful to me because it has many vitamins and minerals that I do not ordinarily get ... read more

    Pros: Packed full of vitamins and minerals, several flavors
    Cons: Somewhat expensive, not for everyone

    Summary: I was first introduced to Ensure when I worked for an orthopaedic surgeon. He made a practice of skipping lunch, and drinking a glass of his "chocolate" as he called it. His "chocolate" consisted of either Ensure or a comparable product. He found it ... read more

  • I drank it cold, hard and fast!

    Oct 5, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great for older adults and if you want to gain weight.
    Cons: “USE UNDER MEDICAL SUPERVISION FOR TUBE FEEDING, REFER TO PHYSICIAN ORDER”.

    Summary: Like actors in Hollywood that play a particular role again and again, Ensure has been type cast as a drink for older adults. Perhaps its the manufacture Ross Products Division of Abbot laboratories that should share in the blame since the label ... read more

    Jul 20, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Vanilla flavor is tasty
    Cons: somewhat expensive

    Summary: Somewhat skeptical, I tried Ensure since I wanted a protein drink that was convenient to drink. I tried Vanilla Ensure and am glad I did. Though Spirutein continues to be my favorite, Vanilla Ensure is a good standby since I don't have to mix it in a ... read more

    Pros: good for your body
    Cons: Not like a milkshake!

    Summary: I really hope that this stuff is good for you. I am not a senior by any means and I think that this beverage is intended for a much wider consumer base than just seniors. I received a sample can of ensure in the mail the other day, so I popped it in the ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Portable, Long shelf life, Passable taste, Inexpensive.
    Cons: Negative nutritional value, Other products deliver true food value.

    Summary: Ensure does so many things well - it comes in easy-open cans, is palatable even at room temperature, has a long shelf life (so one can store it in the car, for example). Ease of use and convenience make Ensure misleadingly attractive, however, since ... read more
