I have tried many protein drinks over the years. Products purchased at GNC that I don't even remember the name of, Slim Fast, Herbal Life, and many more. Zoic is far and away the best one I have used. My favorite flavor is the Belgian Chocolate. I love the convenience of not having to mix powder with water or milk as I did with Herbal Life. I can just grab one out of the fridge and out the door I go.
I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a high protein, low fat meal replacement....more info
- ZOIC Nutrition Drink with Protein
I tried the Vanilla before the Chocolate. I am into sweets or at least I was. The ZOIC nutrition drinks allow me to eliminate all sweets from my diet which in turn helped me snack and eat healthier and gave me more energy. Once I cut out all of the sweets, my weight started to drop. I was a big candy eater before ZOIC, now I am a healthier person who can have more fun with my children and my wife too. ZOIC isn't a sugar-added drink, its just naturally sweet. My wife and kids love the taste and it makes our life's easier because we can each just grab-n-go a virtual meal and take it anywhere. Schools don't allow "un-healthy" foods in the kids lunches but my kids can take ZOIC to their cafeteria and drink it without worries. One of the teachers in my kids schools now drink ZOIC too thanks to my daughter bringing her in one. The teacher is soon to be having a healthy baby girl of her own. We believe in this drink over slim fast and enter-x. ...more info
- Good Low Carb Protein Drink
I really like the ZOIC Belgian Chocolate nutritional drink. It's low-calorie, low-fat, and very filling. The taste if good (slight after taste - I think that it is from the can) and it keeps me satisfied for a least a couple of hours, if not longer. This is definitely best when served well-chilled. It isn't as thick, rich and creamy as some of the RTD shakes out there but it is still filling and very good. I really like the fact that this drink 21 grams of protein with no added sugar,is virtually fat free and only 110 calories.
I disagree with the review that the taste is a lot like a weak "YooHoo" since I personally think that YooHoo is more like a weak and thin chocolate milk and this is much more filling than YooHoo Light. (to me anyway)
This is definitely going to go onto my monthly renewal list.
- Very good!
I like the chocolate flavor of ZOIC almost as much as SlimFast, and MUCH better than the Atkins brand. For the amount of nutrition in one can at half the calories of Slim Fast, you can't beat it!...more info
- Great choice for a healthy protein drink
After drinking the Slim Fast Low Carb shakes for awhile, I started looking for a lower fat alternative. The Zoic shakes fit the bill nicely. I've had both the vanilla and the chocolate, and I like the vanilla better. They have kind of an odd after flavor that I first found rather unpleasant, but I've gotten used to it now and it isn't so bad anymore.
If I were rating on flavor alone, I'd go with the Slim Fast shakes as they are creamier and they don't have an odd aftertaste. However, the Zoic shakes seem more healthy and they are certified by the American Heart Association, so that can't be a bad thing. They are lower in calories and fat and have more protien and vitamins and minerals than the Slim Fast Low Carb shakes, too. I'm sticking with Zoic....more info
- Perfect for the woman on the go!!
I've been drinking Zoic for years and love it! I'm a busy sales rep constantly on the go and on the road and Zoic is the perfect start to the day. It also helps to fill in the gap when there is little time to grab a bite in between sales calls. Zoic provides me with better nutrition & helps to keep my weight in check. I used to grab a slim fast, but have found that Zoic has much better taste. I love the French Vanilla, but the Belgian Chocolate is my favorite!...more info
- Best product of its kind on the market
I was so happy to see Amazon carrying this product as I have used it off and on for about 4 years now. I finally got my thyroid medication adjusted and have been using this as a meal replacement with a piece of fruit for 2 meals (breakfast and lunch) a day with a normal dinner and light desert. I have lost 70 pounds since May 4, 2007. I can only tolerate the taste of the chocolate flavor but mixed with sugarfree instant powdered pudding or a ripe banana keeps me satisfied for hours. I noticed when I lived in Florida at the Cleveland Clinic this was offered at the small Starbucks carts in the lobby's and many gastric patients and their doctors endorsed the product. Never had the surgery but ZOIC was the best tip I ever rec'd....more info
- My favorite nutrition suppliment
What's not to like. This great tasting, low calorie, high quality protein snack / meal replacement is perfect for nutrition on the go for anyone. This is especially if you want to cut down on empty sugar calories which makes other products taste sweeter but usually with twice the calories. I drink 1 to 2 cans a day to control my appetite, so I don't gorge myself with a large high calorie meal. ZOIC is not just for dieters, but is great for anyone that exercises and needs extra muscle building protein. The only problem is it's sometimes hard to find in stores, and when they do have it, chocolate (my favorite) is often sold out. So check it out for yourself and compare lables with other "meal replacement" products. I have absolutly no affiliation with this company, and this is simply my opinion. ...more info
- Great for diabetic supplement for weight maintenance!
My husband was recommended to the product by his nurse. He has lost an extreme amount of weight and is somewhat fragile. He has infrequent seizures- but without warning. He needs to put weight on so we are supplementing his diet with these as snacks! In one month,a 4 pound gain!
We re going on the monthly plan! He just loves them- the Belgan Chcolate!...more info
- The Superior Protein Drink
This is the best product of it's type that I have found. It is not chalky or gritty. The taste is good. Higher protein content, lower fat and calories. ...more info
- Great Product- Much better than Slim Fast
Finally something with protien that is not high in fat, sugar, or cholesterol. Did I spell that right...more info
- Excellent protein drink!
Love this drink! I workout and use this drink as a protein source almost daily. I love that it is both low in calories and low glycemic. I like both flavors (vanilla and chocolate) but if I could only choose one...I'd have to pick chocolate (chocolate IS a girl's best friend!).
I have also used this as a midday as a satisfying snack. My favorite part is that its ready to drink...all I have to do is grab it and go!
- Best protein drink
I Have tasted many protein drinks, most had too much sugar, too many carbs or too little protein. This drink has none of those problems , plus it tastes amazing. I am on automated ordering. It is a great product at a great price....more info
- ZOIC- Chocolate
I just had one and I didn't like it at all, I really didnt enjoy it. Its like a chemical drink, but I have to keep drinking. I will not buy again...more info
- A winning pair
Pair a ZOIC with a GNU bar (available on amazon) for breakfast or lunch and be AMAZED at how your hunger is suppressed for hours and hours. Pairing 21 grams of protein and 12 grams of fiber can't be beat!...more info
- ZOIC Nutrition Drink compared to Slim Fast Low Carb
Here is a comparative of the Nutrition Facts showing ZOIC first on the left and Slim Fast Low Carb second on the right:
Calories: 110 - 190
Calories from Fat: 10 - 80
Saturated Fat: 0.5g - 1.5g
Trans Fat: 0g - 0g
Cholesterol: 5mg - 15mg
Sodium: 230mg - 260mg
Potassium: 230mg - 550mg
Total Carbohydrate: 5g - 6g
Dietary Fiber: 3g - 4g
Sugars: 1g - 1g
"Net Carbs:" 2g - 2g
Protein: 21g - 20g
The vitamins/minerals are somewhat similar in these two drinks and can be found on the Nutrition Facts on the cans. The biggest difference is that Slim Fast Low Carb has about 73% more calories and 70 more Fat calories per drink.
The taste, which I was concerned about when I order my first case of 24 drinks, is similar with the main difference that the Slim Fast Low Carb has a smoother, creamier texture. I experimented with adding about 80 calories of cream to a ZOIC drink and it definitely acquired a smoother, creamier texture. The overall taste of both drinks, in my opinion, is a good taste; but not a great taste. I would give these products a 4.5 rating if I could.
The Slim Fast Low Carb drink with its extra 70 more calories from Fat seems to satisfy my hunger perhaps 30 minutes longer than the ZOIC drink (without any cream added). ZOIC's package states "meal complement & snack replacement" not a meal replacement; in other words, it seems logical that one would add a small portion of other healthful food to make it a meal.
Both drinks refrain from adding any sugar or sugar alcohols (make sure you are comparing Slim Fast "Low Carb" and not other Slim Fast drinks which do have sugar added). Both drinks are free from Trans Fat.
I like to use both drinks to give me variety in taste and calories. The ZOIC drink at only 110 calories is a good choice when I want less calories and less fat calories; perhaps, when a planned meal time has to be pushed back in time by a couple of hours. If I need something to skip a meal, then I will usually choose Slim Fast Low Carb.
Both of these "Low Carb" drinks are good to have on hand in the refrigerator, so you can choose 110 or 190 calories versus some other super-sized 500 plus calorie item that may be in the refrigerator too.
- Zoic Belgian Chocolate
My wife drinks Zoic for the high protein and low sugar content. After her gastric bypass operation, she has a hard time with sources of protein that are readily absorbed by her body. The French vanilla and Belgian chocolate are great tasting sources for her. High sugar content in other sources negatively affect her. Thanks for offering these choices....more info
- Satisfied in Volusia Florida
Tastes somewhat like the Yoohoo drink. It is amazing that there is this much protein with so few calories and fat. Good source of fiber as well.
- I've been drinking Zoic in my coffee for 3 years now
ZOIC Nutrition Drink, Belgian Chocolate (Pack of 24)
I think ZOIC is the best Nutrition drink on the market. People who don't like the taste might do what I do.... I put it in my coffee instead of creamer. It like drinking mocha java every morning. It's perfect for people like me who don't really like breakfast but know you should start the day with something nutritous. Plus I don't have to make any tough choices about food 1st thing in the morning. It's a good value to order it on Amazon, cheaper then in the grocery store (if you can find it) and easier too. ...more info
- Power drink for optimal nutrition
Great tasting and filling. No sugar, low carb, low fat and loaded with vitamins. I drink one every morning for breakfast and for a quick energy boost. I am also very athletic and love the 21 g of ZoPro protein blend for my protein supplementation. TThey both taste much better than any of the Slim Fast junk. Waiting for the strawberry version!?!?...more info
- Best I've Had
I have been looking for a low sugar energy drink so I tried ZOIC. I love it, especially the chocolate. I use it for lunch and do not have those mid afternoon cravings that make me munch on a chocolate bar while walking out of the gym. Since I am a teacher, I appreciate the fact that it does not upset my stomach. ...more info
- Chalky tasting but filling
These definitely have a chalky taste but are filling. I don't get hungry for 5+ hours after drinking one. Well worth the compromise....more info
- If You Like "Chocolate Water" Enjoy
I've been a user of Slim-Fast Low-Carb and Atkins shakes. Seeing that these were only 110 calories, and had good nutritional stats, I thought I'd try them. They taste as if someone mixed cocoa and artificial sweetener with water - no thickness, no mouthfeel. I cannot imagine having one of these shakes for lunch and feeling satisfied - they wouldn't even qualify in my book as a lunchtime beverage. Yuk!...more info
- Great For Post - Gastric Bypass Nutrition
I am 5 years out from my operation (RNY) and solid food has little appeal after dealing with eating too much or too fast, etc. My surgeon calls it "negative behavioral reinforcement" - I call it "pouch purge".
I discovered Zoic while speaking to another patient during a post op visit. She raved about it. I went out immediately and bought it, loved it and it has been my primary form of nutrition ever since. I have consulted my surgeon, 2 nutritionists and my family doctor and no one could shoot holes in the product - is a really great nutrition in a can!
It was always a challenge trying to find enough Zoic in local stores - they do no stock very much and it's only available in the biggest supermarkets. This new Amazon service is the best thing since - well, since I gave up sliced bread!
The subscription service, the quick turnaround and the price - big big savings. And my wife doesn't have to shlep the heavy boxes home in the weekly shopping.
Thanks Zoic and Thanks Amazon! This is great!!!
BTW, I order 6 x 6pks per month.ZOIC Nutrition Drink, Belgian Chocolate (Pack of 24)
Note to purists: If you shop at Whole Foods you probably won't be interested in this product. They won't carry Zoic as some ingredients are artifical. On well........more info
- Sweetened with Splenda
The taste of this product is fine. A little thicker than the AdvantEdge protien drink. My problem with it was that it is sweetened with Splenda and I have allergic reactions to this stuff. So now I am stuck with product-hate to waste $....more info
- Love the stuff...ZOIC was recommended to us by our doctor
I first tried ZOIC in FL while visiting my Mom. Her doctor had put her on it because she is overweight and had developed diabetes. She raved about it so I decided to try it and I loved it. I can't find it anywhere in Boston so I was ordering it directly from their web site where it is $25 for a 12-pack vs. only $32 for a whole case of 24 cans here on amazon. I have tried both the vanilla and chocolate and like them both for variety, but I prefer the chocolate flavor. I am not diabetic but use it when working out for the protein content and the vitamins because - unlike most other nutrition drinksd I've used -- it has no fat or sugar. I love the stuff and so does my Mom!...more info
- Doctor recommended for me
I'm glad I found ZOIC. I have always been a "big guy" but I got a bit older and my cholesterol and BP went up too much for my doc's approval. She recommended that I try ZOIC to lower my cholesterol & drop a few pounds. ZOIC is apparently endorsed by the American Heart Association. It tastes pretty good too, I like it. It's not quite as good as McDonalds milkshake -- but hey -- drinking milkshakes is how I got this heavy in the first place. I drink it fter going to the gym or sometimes for breakfast. I like it alot better than Slimfast and Atkins which I have tried in the past. I read the earlier review comparing ZOIC and Slimfast and can't believe how much healthier the content is in ZOIC. I even have my wife drinking it now, and she really likes it too (and she doesn't usually like healthy stuff)....more info
