Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please Add More Information I really wish DIRECTIONS: was added to these bottles stating how many can be consumed in a day. I have never seen a health product (until now) that doesn't clearly state daily consumption guidelines. As for the flavor, hands down it unbeatable. One of (if not the best) I have ever tried. I had a broken jaw and had to have 27 teeth removed after a terrible car accident knocked them all loose or out, this was one of the only nutritional drinks I could stand to drink, dare I say even enjoyed and looked forward to drinking. Im still healing and Im still drinking them. Kind of expensive at a buck and a half for an 8oz serving, but at least I enjoy them and they are good for me. I just wish the daily consumption was clearly (if not boldly) written on the bottles. And after reading reviews, many many others wish this as well. Especially seniors, big and bold really helps and I feel may get picked up more often times than not. People like the things they buy to be easy to read and straight to the point. Im only 49, and even my eyes aren't that great to read these tiny printed bottles that aren't in bold print. And yes, I wear glasses. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love and buy all flavors. Got hooked on the vanilla during a 3 week hospital stay eight months ago. Pretty much on a liquid diet ever since then due to swallowing issues. Love ALL the "Original" flavors, I buy them all and rotate to get some variation in my diet. As you're probably aware, there are many varieties besides original, there's high protein, low sugar, etc. For me, Original is most cost effective. My body does NOT react well to sugar substitutes, so some of the other formulations won't work.. I would like there to be less sugar, but the alternative, starvation, is even less desirable. I'm a senior, disabled. Usually I can open it unassisted, unless I'm having a bad day. Then I whip out the handy jar opener tool from my drawer to twist off the cap. Remember you do NOT have to remove the "ring" around the cap separately. Just twist off the cap and the ring seal is broken simultaneously. By the way, in the hospital I received Ensure Compact vanilla. The bottle is half the size (4 oz vs 8 oz), with very similar nutrition specs. Tastes about the same, but a little thicker, even more like a milkshake. Great way to get a lot of nutrition down with very little swallowing effort. The cap is large and easy grip. At first I was buying the Compact from Amazon until I realized it cost twice as much as Original and only came in vanilla (and maybe, chocolate?) . I don't need the easy grip, the jar opener works great for me. But for someone with even less grip or strength than I, invest the extra for the Compact size. Hope this helps someone out there!
