294958294958B005V9UG18A21CVKYPQH6YGRA. Ku1141346371200Light & Yummy Meal ReplacementI drink it as a meal replacement for lunch as my lower calorie diet. It's the quickest and easiest lunch, I just take it out of the fridge, chug one and I'm back to work. Probably not the "healthiest" method to losing weight but I find that it keeps me pretty full. Although, I do miss the feeling of chewing something..

I'm not a health nut but I'm glad this stuff is made with organic ingredients. Makes me feel better knowing that I'm not drinking artificial junk because who knows what that artificial stuff does to my body.

I wouldn't say that it increases my energy but it keeps it stable. And I don't get that food coma feeling afterwards, like I would after eating a heavy lunch.

I'd say the Chocolate Fudge is the best flavor. I've tried the Vanilla and Mocha and both of them leave a weird after taste. Honestly, I think the Vanilla tastes like the smell of a butcher shop. =X I went through a whole case of Vanilla and I just couldn't get used to the flavor. The chocolate is creamy with a light fudgey taste and I swear it tastes better the more I drink it.. I must be getting used to the flavor. I've already gone through 3 cases of the Chocolate Fudge and will continue to buy more.
294959294959B005V9UG18A234CKTIOLMM87Susan P. from Melville, NY1151344211200Awesome Orgain!I saw the Orgain promo at my local vitamin store and asked the sales person about it. After reading the ingredients I decided to try the chocolate. I really liked the taste, the consistency and realized later on that I had no negative side effects afterwards. Sometimes I have difficulty with digestion, burping, bloated feeling. Not with Orgain. I decided to buy a few 12 packs and have my husband try it too. He's 63 years old, I'm 56. If he's in a rush in the morning, he now drinks his Orgain in the car on the way to the city. He's a big guy, 6'3" and 275 lbs. He agrees that Orgain is a great way to start the day, replace a snack with Orgain, and feel great. I love the 16 grams of protein. I can go for 4 hours and not feel hungry or like I'm running on empty. I know I'm not missing out on important nutrients that can sustain my aging body. Thanks Orgain!
294960294960B005V9UG18A3VT1Y2F41FY2APickyConsumer00001151343606400Fantastic Meal Replacement Solution!I came across Orgain at a local market, and bought one to try it out. It was delicious, and the the whole idea about being organically healthy was a big turn on for me!

I ended up buying a case from Amazon, and drink one every morning on my way to work. Still need to try the other flavors, but Chocolate is good!
294931294931B005V9UG18AIOPIWA4Q6GAJveronica s3341308787200Great protein alternativeI used to drink these daily as a meal replacement while feeling very poorly. I was able to maintain a level of energy that I would not have had otherwise. They are also delicious-tasting when cold. I found I couldn't really drink them at room temperature. They're convenient on the go and I feel good about the ingredient list. I prefer the chocolate but actually found the vanilla very pleasant as well, almost like melted vanilla ice cream or rich vanilla soymilk. The chocolate is a bit chalky, but more in a cocoa powder sort of way, so not bad.

As someone who doesn't eat much meat or dairy, these are a great alternative for me once in a while. I was nearly living off of them for several weeks last summer, and feeling reasonably good while doing so, but then sort of went cold turkey. The bottom line is that real, whole foods are always going to be better for you but if that isn't an option, these are a better alternative than junk food or nothing. I still have a case and a half left and will probably consume them here and there, sparingly. I do recommend them, especially in place of typical protein supplements.
294932294932B005V9UG18A3ITJE5EFR1UNiamerikai2211350172800Highly Disappointed in Sudden Flavor Change & Store UnavailabilityI've been researching Orgain online trying to figure out what happened considering I used to live on it but now can no longer even FIND it. Like many of the other reviews mention - I lived on this stuff for breakfast and would purchase it by the case for months. I immediately noticed the flavor change that other reviews have mentioned (I always ordered the chocolate flavor) and agree the new ingredient flavor change was NOT for the better. I was very disappointed.

Then I suddenly realized that Orgain was no longer available at ALL in my local Whole Foods where I used to find it in both the shelf and chilled sections of the store. I then noticed that my 'subscribe & save' case shipping from Amazon quit shipping entirely after a years on-going subscription. I mentioned this to the friend who first introduced me to Orgain only to hear her tell me that our very popular and local vegetarian grocery store, Rainbow Grocery, has also quit selling it. I assumed that Orgain went out of business but I am still finding it online here at Amazon (just no longer with subscribe & save option) - and the official website appears to be up and running (with Whole Foods still quite confusingly being listed as a retail provider). I checked another Whole Foods retail store in another city and they, too, have quit selling this product which leads me to believe that Whole Foods has backed out entirely.

Super frustrated and really disappointed on all counts. I am actively seeking, like other customers, a new replacement. I tried Muscle Milk the other day -- GROSS!
294933294933B005V9UG18A22GXZP67W68ACLisa2211350000000HORRIBLE change to the original orgainI had my whole family hooked on Orgain. I made my kids drink one every morning with their breakfast. It was my breakfast every morning as well as my husbands. We loved Orgain so much that we had several cases auto shipped to us every month. Then a couple months ago, we thought we got a bad batch of the iced mocha and so we returned them and tried getting them locally in a store by us. Same horrific taste. At the same time, we were dropped from the auto ship program and it was getting harder to find it in the local stores in that flavor so we assumed they changed the formula but the Vitamin Shoppe had no idea and there was no indication on the packaging saying that there were any changes made. So, we tried switching to the chocolate fudge. It was delicious so we just changed our auto ship to the new flavor and for a couple months got by with the chocolate fudge. Then, we got dropped from the auto ship again and had a harder time finding it in the stores. Apparently, they changed the chocolate fudge formula also. I just got 2 new cases and they have that same DISGUSTING taste that the iced mocha had. Needless to say we can't drink it anymore, will be returning what we have and actively trying to find a replacement drink. I can't tell you how disappointed we are. All I can say is that unless they change the formula back, I'll never buy it again. It isn't even drinkable. It's absolutely revolting!
294934294934B005V9UG18AY3AVLL5IWW9Russell Fanelli2251346457600Price increase.Let me join my voice to the chorus of people upset with Amazon for the price increase for Orgain drinks. As others have mentioned, the price has gone up from $28. to $44. Even though this is an excellent product, I will no longer be buying Orgain from Amazon.

Perhaps when enough people have stopped buying Orgain, Amazon and the makers of this product will come to their senses and bring down the price to former levels. I can already hear readers of this review saying, "Nice try!"

Does anyone have recommendations for products that do the same thing as Orgain, but for a reasonable price?
294935294935B005V9UG18A3KADHJLQ8UUOEVictory2241338940800Pleasantly surprisedTastes pretty good. Actually tastes like regular soy milk. Has a few more calories than I expected (255), but not a big deal. I hate protein shakes, so saying this is good is a leap for me, but it's pretty good.
294936294936B005V9UG18A68HABQUH08G3Janelle2251337558400LOVE LOVE LOVE ORGAIN!!!!This is a staple in my house at all times. I use it as a meal replacement since i try to eat 4-5 small meals a day at about 250 calories, which is what Orgain has. It also has an antioxidant berry blend and a greens blend mixed in which is unlike any other protein drink. But the best part is it tastes like chocolate milk and i always want to drink it. AMAZING!! Chocolate fudge is the best flavor by the way. No need to even go to the vanilla or mocha since the chocolate is so delish!
294937294937B005V9UG18A3LY2GBBTINSJATennyson2251329264000OrgainI am on medications for cancer and among the many side effects of the treatment is loss of taste and appetite with a resultant weight loss. Orgain was recommended as a food supplement although I had been using Ensure. I found Orgain to be not only delicious but it has had a very positive effect in terms of halting weight loss and providing excellent nutrients. Since there is no lactose content it is also far more tolerable. Recommend highly.
294938294938B005V9UG18A1ZRKGV3H9EY55Sunshine Girl2251328918400Love this newest flavorWhat can I say? Orgain is the best protein shake I've ever had, and I've tried many of them over the years. Out of the three flavors, this newest flavor is definitely the best. I have used and continue to use Amazon's 'Subscribe & Save' option for all of the Orgain shakes, as I drink them at least four to five times per week and don't have to worry about searching for them all over town. In my area, the Whole Foods by me sells out often and generally only has the Vanilla Bean flavor in stock (my least favorite). The local health food store, hardly ever has them as well. So, I was quite happy after finding the Orgain shakes on Amazon, over a year ago.

Nutrition wise, I can honestly say that there is definitely an increase in energy after consistently drinking these, but not in that unnatural, over stimulated way that caffeinated or chemical laden products can sometimes leave you feeling. I use them as meal replacements when pressed for time, when my appetite is light, and/or an hour before working out...for the energy boost.

Cost wise, if you're on a tight budget, this product might be a bit of a splurge, but is still less per shake, than the average latte, or fast food meal. Which is obviously, not as healthy for you.

Currently, I switch between drinking the Cafe Mocha and Chocolate Fudge and would highly recommend this product. For those like myself, who work in an office setting, these are a great option to keep in the work fridge, in order to steer clear of that office snacking area (the vending machine, that co-worker who loves to bake, the Friday doughnut day, etc.).
294939294939B005V9UG18AJ23ES8NUHQ45Eddie2251327276800The best OrgainRich, creamy, a genuine chocolate taste - this would be satisfying even without loads of nutrients. The fact that it's nutritious makes it all the more satisfying to drink. Keep it going!
294940294940B005V9UG18A1X52NCRAKJS0FDiane "Healthy and Fit"2251325894400Great TasteI saw this in a wellness email I get and checked out their website and was impressed. I was able to locate this at my local grocery store and tried the chocolate, vanilla and the coffee mocha. I only liked the chocolate the other two flavors were doable but I would not buy again but that is just me as I typically find that drinks with these flavors do not suit me. I really enjoy the chocolate and can drink it cold out of the carton without having to add/blend anything with it which makes it a great grab and go meal/snack. The price from Amazon is cheaper then the grocery store and the subscribe and save / auto delivery make it that much better. This will remain as a go to item in my pantry.
294941294941B005V9UG18A3EFSLEMHNPP6ASenor Zoidbergo2251322438400FINALLY, Amazon offers Prime Shipping for the Mocha FlavorI am a huge fan of Orgain; stumbled upon it a few months ago accidentally, when I was looking for an organic, high quality meal replacement/protein drink with no artificial sweeteners. I don't like stevia either. I love the ingredients list on Orgain- organic whey & milk proteins!!, brown rice syrup to avoid that sugar crash, and a great blend of vegetables and fruits. I can't even tell from drinking that it contains kale, beet, spinach, carrots, and tomatoes. The 16g of protein per asceptic container is perfect and ideally sized.

I purchase at least 5-6 cases of Orgain a month, because I drink 2-3 a day. At least 1 as a post-workout shake, and the others as meal supplements. Orgain also helps me stay awake at night for evening classes, and are more preferable to consuming Red Bull or 5-hour energy drinks. I credit Orgain (along with a healthy diet) for helping me lose weight and pursue my fitness goals.

Big fan of the sweet vanilla and chocolate flavors, was hoping to try the Cafe Mocha flavor, but Amazon didn't offer any with Prime shipping...until now! The coffee flavor is delicious; there's a slight coffee-ish aftertaste, but I like it. Its flavor profile lies somewhere between the more neutral vanilla and the stronger chocolate flavors. There's also no caffeine in the Mocha varieties. Unlike the vanilla flavor, I'm happy to report that the Mocha flavors do not seem prone to whey protein aggregation.

Do yourself a favor and grab a Cafe Mocha Orgain! Pop it in the fridge, and it'll be like drinking a nice iced coffee from Starbucks, but much healthier. Just a final caveat; the Cafe Mocha flavor seems very popular, and frequently goes out of stock. Buy it when you can!
294942294942B005V9UG18AC6KI8NW75JZTJane Schmane2251317168000Great product and outstanding Orgain customer serviceI have been a fan of Orgain for over a year now. I recently subscribed-and-saved so I get a shipment of the Vanilla Bean flavor monthly. I have delayed gastric emptying and the Orgain drinks are helpful on bad days. They are way better all around than the alternatives for meal replacement drinks. I recently had an unexpected quality issue with the most recent carton she received, so I contacted Orgain about the problem. They replied promptly, offered a replacement, and followed up thoroughly. The quality of customer service I received was great--you don't get that very often. The company really seems to care about putting a quality product out there and keeping their customers happy. Orgain: Keep up the good work. Amazon: Keep offering good deals on this awesome product. Everyone else: Try Orgain, you'll be glad you did.
294943294943B005V9UG18A1L0PVKM2AVHCVSarah Beth Whetzel "sbdubya"2251312416000Amazing!!!Best protein drink out there. I've been drinking protein shakes for over 10 years and have tried every single brand available. The powdered, the ready made, the big jugs, the protein water, etc. This tastes so good it should not be healthy! And on top of the great protein, there is nothing bad in it! Even my two boys love them. The chocolate is the best, in my opinion, but the vanilla and mocha are still better than anything out there. I travel all the time for work and now that I've discovered these great drinks, I have to figure out a way to get 5 of them in my checked luggage for every week that I'm gone from home! That's how much I love them!
294944294944B005V9UG18A2LCPG11PMQCPGrawjea2251311984000JeanI THINK THAT THE ORGANIC SWEET VANILLA BEAN IS ONE OF THE BEST PROTEIN DRINKS THAT I HAVE EVER USED. I WORK OUT A LOT IN THE GYM AND I NEED A LOT OF WHEY PROTEIN. IT HAS 16 GRAMS OF PROTEIN,10 SERVINGS OF FRUIT AND VEGETABLES,26 VITAMINS AND MINERALS, AND ON TOP OF THAT IT TASTE GOOD. IT KEEPS YOU FEELING FULL,WITHOUT A LOT OF FAT.
I EVEN USE IT AS A SNACK BECAUSE IT IS SO WELL BALANCED IN WHAT YOUR BODY NEEDS TO ENERGIZE YOU.

I HOPE I NEVER HAVE TO DO WITH OUT ORGANIC SWEET VANILLA BEAN.

I PURCHASE MY ORGAIN SWEET VANILLA BEAN FROM AMAZON, ALSO MY TEA,GIFTS AND KINERASE PRO-THERAPY MOST ANY THING YOU WANT AMAZON CAN GET IT FOR YOU AT THE BEST PRICE!

294945294945B005V9UG18A3GG0FQOM7GHS3Michael's2Cents2251302566400Amazing!!!I absolutely love these shakes! Previously, I was mixing my own protein shakes (chocolate whey protein with unsweetened diluted coconut milk, and a banana blended) every morning for breakfast. Since I found Orgain, I no longer have to clean my hand blender every day and waste five plastic cups a week or carry around a dirty cup until I get home from work. The taste is amazing (the vanilla is decent, but not nearly as good as the chocolate) and the nutritional content and organic ingredients are exactly what I was looking for. It's smooth and creamy (not gritty) and, don't worry, you only taste chocolate, not the vegetable extracts, vitamins and minerals (the vanilla tastes significantly more mineral-and-protein-powder-like, that's why I wouldn't recommend it). I have a degree in nutrition, I am a semi-professional chef, I'm active, and I'm very picky with what I eat, so I'm impressed that I like a product like this so much. Usually there's something I would want to change (like removing artificial sweeteners, sugar alcohols, etc).

I live near Los Angeles and the only place I can find Orgain now is at Ralph's for $2.99/ea + tax and they do not offer any sort of discount for bulk purchases. They used to carry it at Whole Foods for a month or two and would offer 10% off if you bought 10 or more, but they have recently stopped carrying it. If you like this product as much as I do, the cheapest way to get it is to subscribe to have it regularly delivered through Amazon, giving you an additional 15% savings from the already low price and you will also receive free shipping!
294946294946B005V9UG18A3IKSAIQW0VYQSJennifer2251288224000Tastes greatTastes amazing, and surprisingly fills you up. Great to have on the go especially in the morning and I'll feel full until lunch time. Also Amazon's offer is an amazing deal. At my local Whole Foods, each go for $3.50
294947294947B005V9UG18A2BMFOZSEXR9OTAbby Mann2241286928000Not As Good As Chocolate, but Still An Excellent Choice!I've been searching since the days that Kashi stopped producing their meal replacement shake mix for something that tastes just as good and is just as good for you. I've tried both available flavors of Orgain, and the Vanilla flavor I find to have some whey protein taste...I don't enjoy tasting whey protein but still find the drink palatable. The shake tastes great at room temp and amazing chilled. I appreciate that there's some remnants of veggies and fruit in the shake too.

Potential downsides:
It's not all oil, sugar, and protein....although its mostly that... So it's not exactly as good as sitting down and eating a sandwich. The shake is only made in pre-measured little boxes so there's no opportunity to save some money with a tub of a dry mix. The shakes are expensive too. The trade off is better ingredients, instead of unpronounceable and artificial junk found in say, Slimfast (although that too is mostly oil, sugar, and protein...just from worse ingredient sources). The shake is also not vegan if that's something you're looking for. There's currently only 2 flavors of the shake too, so if variety's your thing, this isn't a good shake to try out long term. I wish this had more veggies and fruit in it though...vs. 50 mg each of a fruit and veggie blend.
294948294948B005V9UG18ANJIPE3ZRX51Lpgirl2251285718400Best meal replacement I have ever hadOver the years I have tried many meal replacements. Becasue of my need to have no preservatives and no junk I can not pronounce in my drinks it got pretty inconvenient and messy so I went to bars. With Orgain I get everything I want and more. Most of all it sustains me for about 4 hours. The taste is fantastic both chocolate and vanilla. I feel healthy when I drink it. I have been on weight watchers for 6 weeks now and with the help of Orgain I have lost 13 pounds and am nearing the 190's which I have not been in over 6 months. If you are wondering the point value it is 5 which seems a bit high for a small drink but most meals at this point value will sustain you for this long and if you have no time to cook, prepare and need the best alternative on the market grab an Orgain!!!! you won't be sorry
294949294949B005V9UG18AOUYT5F1WZDZKTumblewords2251285545600TastyI'm dedicated to healthy eating but once in a while, mealtime shows up before I'm ready. Orgain fills the bill with its rich flavor and quality ingredients. Warm or cold, Orgain is a delightfully special drink.
294950294950B005V9UG18A21W189BUSB7RVJyde2251281398400Good ProductDefinitely the shake/smoothie you should be drinking!!!

It has all the nutrient base covered, it's taste great, easy to carry, I got this once and now i'm Hooked. It's basically a meal replacement drink that contains all your important nutrients and protein.

If you want to lose weight and feed your body with good stuff, this is your DRINK!

It's that simple.

So my little advice to the founder: Dr. Abraham, if you are reading this, you have done a good job in producing the first pure organic nutrient rich meal replacement drink, please don't be tempted as most other product manufactures have done or are currently doing by putting profit before people health. I'm sure you get what i'm saying.

I hope you are successful and orgain makes it BIG

So fellow consumers this is a 5 star!!! You won't be disappointed. I hope.

Disclaimer: I don't work or anyway associated with Orgain. I'm a regular consumer like you who LOVES this product. it's that simple. I'm surely not paid to write this review. I just want to spread the good work of Orgain.

That's it!
294951294951B005V9UG18A1DIFL0333QPEBMarcus T. Brody2241280448000GREAT!I'm a huge fan of ready to go drinks and smoothies, and when I saw these in my local health food store, I almost became giddy. After tasting it, I DID become giddy! This stuff not only tastes AMAZING, but it's also the healthiest ready to go drink on the market. Digests well, tastes amazing, very nutritious.

My ONLY problem with this formulation is the use of Cane Sugar as the sweetener. This formulation, if it's supposed to be truly healthy, should replace the cane sugar with brown rice syrup, or some other sweetener with nutritive properties. Cane sugar is damaging to the body, even when "organic".
294952294952B005V9UG18AGEFQTF3LR8L9cris4531348185600there has been a recent changeI have been purchasing chocolate fudge orgain for over a year now and I have always loved it. Recently, the taste is different and does not taste as good. I am wondering what happened.
294953294953B005V9UG18A12V5O73UDELMOSad21131350950400Change to formulaI too am disappointed by the changes made recently to Orgain. This was a great product. Now I struggle to get through it. I actually sent an email to the company. I hope they change it back.
294954294954B005V9UG18A3DPE1MD8GJH6NTinkaboutit1111350345600Horrible!What are these people writing reviews thinking? I bought the Creamy Chocolate Fudge based on the great reviews it got. It tastes terrible! It has some type of aftertaste that I can't even describe. Gasoline? At $3 each, it's tough to pour them down the sink. And it's probably against some evironmental law to pour it down the gutter in the street. Maybe I'll try the gas tank of my car......
294955294955B005V9UG18A1HE6FS58712G7Greg N.1141348617600Great Product!I just received my order of 2 12 packs of this stuff here in lovely Kandahar, Afghanistan :) I ordered this to supplement the "wonderful" food that the Army provides here on our outpost. I initially drank one warm, even though it says to chill. There really isn't a big difference, apart from the fact the chilled ones are more refreshing on these hot days. Otherwise, the flavor isn't bad, considering everything they've crammed into this drink. I'd like to try the coffee one eventually, as I enjoy the flavor of coffee more, but it was out of stock when I ordered. Overall, I would say this is a great product, and I will definitely be buying this again. Cheers!!

294956294956B005V9UG18ANGCX64853PSDCarlie Tardino1151348444800Can't live without my Orgain!I have done MUCH research on different meal replacement shakes and this one hands down stands out from the rest. The Iced Cafe Mocha flavor is the best! Over ice, w/ a hint of nutmeg - there is nothing like it. My husband couldn't believe the ingredients - top notch guys! Keep up the good work : )
294957294957B005V9UG18A8NEFW4EC1AKIS. Miesen1151348272000Orgain Chocolate Meal Replacement ShakesProduct served over ice or cold tastes very chocolate-like and has the calorie content that it should have for a meal replacement shake. It tastes much better than other meal replacement shakes we have tried, and is helping keep the weight on as we wanted!! In using the internet to purchase, we have had no trouble receiving the product, and this time it actually arrived one day earlier than scheduled, which was a nice surprise! We love this product, and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to maintain their weight or who may have trouble eating and needing to replace their caloric intake with a drinkable resource. I highly recommend this to any chocolate lover who needs to drink meal replacement shakes, or for anytime when on the go and needing good nutrition!!
