Special K Coffee House Breakfast Shakes Review


  As part of being a BzzAgent I received this new product for free, to try and review.  I received  Chocolate Mocha, and Vanilla Cappuccino Special K Coffee House Breakfast Shakes.  I was really excited to try these out because I love coffee!  My name is Sarah, and I'm a coffee addict.  Okay, so maybe it's not to that extreme, but there may be only a handful of mornings, in the entire year, that I do not start my day with some caffeine.  Needless to say, the day after I received these in the mail, I tried one out for breakfast.
     Taste wise, I think they are great.  Most morning "diet" drinks taste very chalky, and just are not very good.  These, though, have a great taste, Especially cold.  I had them in the fridge, before I would drink them.  I think that they would have been even better if I had put them in the freezer for a little bit, so they were more slushy like, or even just putting them over ice.  Basically, the colder the better on these.

     The first one I tried was the Chocolate Mocha.  It had a great creamy, but yet still coffee flavor to it.  The Vanilla Cappuccino, although having a slight taste of coffee, was much more on the sweeter side.  I'd compare the Chocolate Mocha to a Starbucks Iced Coffee, and the Vanilla Cappuccino to a Starbucks Frappuccino, taste wise.

     Now for what is in these tasty little drinks.  Both versions that I was given contain 10 grams of protein, and 5 grams of fiber. 10 grams of protein is a great way to start your day going strong!  It also claims to have as much caffeine as one cup of coffee.  Fantastic! The Vanilla Cappuccino (the Chocolate Mocha is comparable) has 180 calories, 5 grams of fat, 15 mg of cholesterol, 230 mg sodium and 18 grams of sugars.  It's not horribly bad.  For a meal replacement, 180 calories would definitely help you lose weight.  The only thing I would worry about is that high number for sugars.

     I am currently on Nutrisystem, trying to lose weight, as it is.  So, taking this drink, instead of my allotted breakfast food, was not too much of a change for me.  If I had not been on a diet already, I'm not sure this drink would have left me feeling full.  It is, though, great for something quick to grab.  If you are one who has to leave at a certain time, and usually do not have a lot of time for breakfast, this is a good supplement.  It's easy and perfect for breakfast on the go.  With the high amount of protein, it should keep you going strong through your mornings.
