How does the 39 grams of Carbs (31g Sugar) compare the the positives mentioned above, and how many of those positives are left after considering the sugar intake?

This seems worse than the cereals with the most sugar, other than it has some protein.

By comparison NesQuick chocolate powder only has 23g Sugar per serving and still 8g Protein at 150 calories.

There's no comparison between Nesquick chocolate powder [ssl-images-amazon.com] and this instant breakfast [ssl-images-amazon.com] when it comes to vitamins and minerals.

For those who want to check it out themselves, here's a link to Nesquick [amazon.com]

To clarify roybok's claims:
Nesquick has less than < 1 gram protein, not 8g
Carnation has 19g of sugar, vs *Nesquick's 11g. The add'l 12g of sugar roybok is counting comes from milk (if that's how you consume it).

*These amounts are if you use only 14g (weight) of the Nesquick (not likely), vs 36g (weight) of the Carnation.

Carnation is 36g, but close enough. So 19g vs 11g == 8g of sugar difference.

Both products suggestion is to add to Milk, and both products show Nutrition info With and Without 1 cup vitamin A&D milk, and so I used the Milk numbers above. Seemed logical to me.

Sorry - not trying to thread crap, as the deal is good. Just trying to figure out the nutritional benefit. Seems like Chocolate milk plus a Multivitamin would be as beneficial as Carnation and have the benefit of less sugar.

Sure you are. If you were simply "trying to figure out the nutritional benefit" you can compare the nutritional info from both product labels.

Bought this once before, was fairly pleased with it.
Not amazing flavor but not bad, but for the price and nutritional value it makes for a quick cheap breakfast replacement

I use them in recipes but when drinking in milk only I use a half packet; it has a very strong chocolatey flavor.
