Soy Advantage Chocolate Powder
Bad Product Because of Iron
Has Iron 9 mg (from ferrous fumarate) per serving added to the product . Iron is usually not and added ingredient in most products for males because it can be harmful.
You will find no iron in most vitamin and nutritional supplement for males because wise companies know better and do not add iron to many products.

We Love This Item
My husband absolutely loves this item. The chocolate and vanilla are delicious. He has a shake every single morning.
He always has me order again before he runs out!

Trick to thicken it up
I've been drinking Spirutein protein shakes for breakfast for quite some time, but when I saw the price of this product, I decided to try it. Plus, I have very bad hot flashes, and soy is suppose to help relieve them.. I've tried everything on the market and nothing has really helped much, but thought I'd give this a try.
I'm not sure if it's helping with the hot flashes, although, they actually do seem less "hot" lately. Might be because of the soy??
But aside from that, it is delicious. The chocolate is better tasting (to me) than the Spirutein chocolate. The only thing I didn't like was that it wasn't thick like Spirutein. I did some research and found that Xanthan Gum is a natural thickener many people use in their smoothies.
I purchased Now brand Xanthan Gum from Swansons for $6.79 and have found that only 1/2 teaspoon thickens this shake up to the consistancy of a thick creamy malt..yum....
I use milk, water, soy milk or almond milk in a blender with 3 icecubes and a big scoop of this product. Blend it up till the ice is blended, then add 1/2 tsp of the Xanthan on high and it thickens it up in seconds...
I feel just as energized as I do drinking Spirutein, but at a much better cost!

Our Daily Breakfast
We have been having this shake as our daily breakfast for several months now, and we can't live without it! It is delicious blended with ice. I"ve been waiting for it to become available again for several weeks and we are getting desperate over here. We tried a couple of local brands and they don't compare in taste. This is an excellent product at an unbeatable price. Please, please, please, bring it back into stock!

This is great in shakes with banana & almond or soy milk for post workout protien shake.

I was pleasently surprised at how great this tasted (since it doesn't really have that much sugar) and it has lots of vitamins. It is not gritty and it mixes up really well with a shaker. I really can't get over how great it tastes - Defintiely worth a try!

Simply love it
Whatever it is from Swanson, I fall in love with it because I trust the brand, been using their products for nearly a year now and not a single reason to complain. I love the taste and quality of this shake, mixes without a blender in my cup, I just have to stir it with a spoon. Makes me a good morning!

Found a product that does everything I want!!
I was looking for meal replacement and something for weight loss. Well, in a little more than a month I lost 20 pounds. I mixed this with one or two bananas, fresh fruit, almond milk, or sometimes just filtered water and I also use Green Max from Swanson. I drink this in the morning and sometime in the evening, as a replacement for breakfast and dinner. I do not use the Green Max in the evening, as it gives me energy. I highly recommend the Chocolate Soy Powder. The only negative thing I can say about it is- if you use it as directed- it goes fast! I was using it twice a day, and of course, it went even faster. I wish it came in bigger cans. But, you cannot beat the price and the taste and all that it has to offer!! I mix mine in a magic bullet blender. Mixes well.

Both the chocolate and vanilla products are excellent. They taste better than most and are a better value as well. And there is plenty of protein in a serving.

Rich & Creamy
This has had benefits to my health overall, makes me hungry sometimes and I like it. Will buy another after this one runs out. Do try the Vanilla flavor too!

Love this product
A good on the run quality product for the blender with milk and maybe a bananna. Good properly balanced nutrition. Does not blend with a stir, you need a blender. We love it.

Soy Advantage Chocolate
Great product and mixes very good in my blender with no problem. Taste is great and the value is even better. I saw the other reviews about not mixing correctly and just wonder what they were using to mix it with??? This is just fantastic and taste like drinking a chocolate milk shake...

Love this Product
I have finished my second canister of Soy Advantage. I am completely safisfied and think it tastes great. I have read the reviews and completely disagree with the 'negative' reviews. First of all, I followed the suggestions. I mix with soy milk, blend with ice in mixer and the final product is a wonderful, frothy shake every morning. As others have mentioned, I am certain adding strawberries or a banana would also improve the taste and health benefits. I commute an hour every morning and I make time to quickly blend my protein shake in mixer! The nutrional values are unbeatable.

This is a good way to get a quick breakfast in on the way to work. I just blend it up with milk or soy milk and half a banana.

not so soy
This product had a pleasant light chocolate taste but was way too difficult to mix. I even put it in my Vita Mix and it still would not dissolve.

Chocolate shake for breakfast!
I love chocolate shakes, and the idea of being able to have one every morning for breakfast is absolutely mind-boggling. But that's what's happened since I've grown older. As I've aged, my system has become less and less tolerant of breakfast cereals -- whether that's because of the wheat content or the chemicals added to the flakes/pops/nuggets to make them crispier & last longer on the shelf, I'm not sure, and I don't care. Several years ago I quit breakfast cereal in the morning and started eating fruit and a shake made from Swanson Ultra Soy Advantage (chocolate is my favorite, quickly followed by vanilla), and my digestive upset has disappeared. In addition, I have 100% more energy, now that I've switched. I now launch myself into the day instead of limping into it...powered by protein and fruit sugar. I love starting each morning with a milk shake!!!

I absolutely love the Soy Advantage. I add it to milk with ice and a banana each morning and I am not hungry for several hours after. I have lost 10 pounds since beginning it 3 weeks ago. I have no complaints about the product. It tastes wonderful. I will keep using it as long as I can.

Product has always been quite satisfactory until my last order when I found it VERY difficult to dissolve in water. I would want assurance from Swanson that this is not ongoing before I would order again.

Tastes not so good.
I read the reviews before I purchased the product. The reviews were correct. Ishould have listened. This product does not taste appetizing at all. I use it in my morning nutritional milk shake drink . I haven't found anything yet that I can add to makes this drink taste adequate. Don't waste your money on this product.
