Was at my local Wal-Mart in Huntington Beach, CA yesterday.

They normally sell a 4-pack of EAS Carb Control Ready-to-drink shakes for $5.83. However, EAS has once again packaged them up as "special 50% more free" packs, which include 2 more shakes for free. 6 shakes for $5.83.

That makes the deal HOT at less than $1.00 per shake.

For all of you low-carb folks, these drinks only contain 1g of impact carbohydrates, and they are one of the best-tasting shakes on the market.

Get these QUICK as they will be sold out very soon.

Nice deal...I may look at using a shake to replace my afternoon protein bar (roughly $2.00 per bar). How many grams of protein is in a single shake?

Not a bad price, if you can choke the stuff down :disgust:

A few months ago the local Safeway had these on sale so I bought a 4-pack hoping to find a less costly alternative to the Atkins brand shake.

Big disappointment.

I drank 'em 'cause they were paid for, but for me anyway, the Atkins are well worth the extra money.

LOL..if these are somewhat good tasting and it's got plenty of protein, I'll choke them down. As long as it's not like Fear Factor.... ;gag

Obviosuly personal preference plays a BIG role in whether you think these are bettter than Atkins shakes. I think there is NO competition and the EAS is much better tasting, especially the chocolate fudge. But I hate salmon and quich, so ..... My local Dillons store is selling 4 packs for $4.50. I need to check walmart.

i was at the gym earlier and there's a wal mart down the street (city of industry) so i decided to look it up

i think i might've grabbed the last one, since there was only one left, unless they were placed elsewhere, anyhow, it's 15g of protein in each , there's the other "atkins advantage" , only 4 in a pack, for about another dollar more, which has 20g of protein and 4g of carbs, grabbed one of those too just for the heck of it

i will give it a shot right now and see what it tastes like.....*brb*

ok, just took a sip, not so bad, taste just like hot cocoa, only it's served cold :]

i've been on an "atkins" diet lately, eating just "meat", cheese, and eggs, i lost about 20lbs doing absolutely nothing other than cutting back on carbs as much as i could during summer, but i still did eat carbs, just not as much (i'm a pasta lover), so hopefully with these shakes replacing my regular meals i hope to get even better results and faster since i've decided to hit the gym more often

I bought a bunch of these last time they did this. I still have like 10 or so cases of them in my closet. I've gotten lazy and stopped working out, used to always drink one after a workout. All 3 flavors are fairly good, none are great, but definitely drinkable even for a snack.

Just a word on these shakes (as well as others) - Im not authority on the subject, but Ive been into amateur bodybuilding for about 6 years now, at the competitive level since 3yrs back. It's very important to understand the issue of "impact carbs", etc... especially with this atkins/low-carb diet stuff that has been sweeping the country. No matter *what* supplement we're talking about here, all of the product claims are still unapproved by the FDA, so they can pretty much tell you anything they want. "Only 1 carb per serving!", "Only 80 calories per shake!", etc...

All of those shakes have more carbs than they claim, including the "impact carbs"... a carbohydrate is 4 kilocalories no matter how you slice it. So just be careful when slamming these drinks that are believed to be low-carb.

If you want true lo-carb, buy some straight protein powder (no, not the atkins brand which is low grade), but from a reputable company and mix it yourself (better with milk, but use water if you doin the locarb thing).

Also, even at $1 per shake, it's still expensive when buying the RTDs because they are shipped and charged by volume.
