These are pretty good, except for the high sugar. I started buying these for my son who has an autism spectrum disorder. He is very picky about what he eats, and it's usually nothing healthy. I don't consider these especially healthy, but they have a lot of good nutrients that my son needs and wouldn't get otherwise. They are full of protein, so that's the main reason I buy them for him. They are a little expensive, but it's worth it since he has a very limited diet. I tasted one of these once, and I though the taste was horrible. I couldn't drink even half of it, but my son really enjoys the taste. I do think these taste a little better than other similar products. Most of the drinks that are similar to this one only come in vanilla and chocolate. This one also has a strawberry flavor, and my son says that one is the best. I will continue to buy these, and I highly recommend them for anyone that has a picky eater.
