Product Review: Special K Coffee House Breakfast Shakes

Products were given to me to review thru my membership as a BzzAgent but all opinions are mine.


It's a typical weekday morning.  Spouses and kids underfoot, everyone racing to get ready for work and school.  Let the dogs out, feed the cat, get the kids breakfast on the table while you find your child's lost shoe, sign a last second permission slip for a field trip to school... rushing out the door and....

No time for breakfast?

What if you could grab a bottle out of the refrigerator that was delicious, had 10 grams of protein,  5 grams of fiber, one third of daily recommended vitamins for women, a shot of caffeine to help you get going and was under 200 calories?

I was given a chance to try Special K's Coffee House Breakfast Shakes and received the Chocolate Mocha and Vanilla Cappuccino versions.  The first one I tried was the Vanilla Cappuccino and it was very, very good.  Rich, cold and smooth, it had good flavor and reminded me of an icy cold version of a hot vanilla cappuccino.  I didn't get to enjoy it long though; my high school daughter was rushing out the door to school and commandeered my drink!   Not only did she love it, but her 3 friends asked her what she was drinking and she ended up doing some 'social marketing' without even realizing it.

The second kind was a Chocolate Mocha.  Now, I was a little less enthused to try this one only because I'm not a big fan of chocolate.  I made sure it was icy cold, straight from the refrigerator and gave it my best shot.  The average person I think, would love it.  You could definitely taste the chocolate and I realize most of the human population loves chocolate so I'm giving a thumbs up on that one.

It just so happens my husband was leaving for work and he never, ever takes time for breakfast.  He loves chocolate and coffee though so it was a win/win situation to give it to him to try and give me feedback.  He loved it and was especially happy to find out there was 10 grams of protein in that little bottle.

He did however let me know that he wouldn't want to drink them outside the house as he felt the bottle was too 'girly'.  LOL.

In short order, both product versions were given a thumbs up by me and my family.

Special K Coffee House Breakfast Shakes offer 10g of protein, 5g of fiber and some key vitamins & minerals as well as a boost of caffeine equivalent to a small 5.5 oz. cup of coffee - all in just 200 calories.

Our family already purchases a variety of Special K products from their cereals to pastries so including a quick 'take and go' breakfast drink to have on hand isn't too much of a stretch!
