Love this product. Perfect for a between meal snack to hold you until the next meal or as a meal replacement. If you're already buying big train iced lattes . Why not add 20 grams of protein simply by switching to this. PS the espresso flavor is strong with 200 grams of caffeine so don't expect to sleep if you drink it to close to bedtime. The mocha and coffee free chocolate and vanilla flavors are incredible.
Mocha and Chocolate are AMAZING, ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!
Vanilla and Vanilla Latte are TERRIFIC!
Chai and Espresso are disappointing, not what you'd expect from Big Train.
I love Big Train's regular chai mix, so I bought the Chai fit frappe, and a sample pack of the other flavors. I don't like to waste things, so I'm getting used to the chai flavor, but I don't particularly care for it. At first I thought I was sucking on a Christmas tree. After looking at the ingredients, I realize it's the clove that I'm tasting. It's far too much, far too overpowering.
Mocha is a MUST HAVE for me. I'm ordering that to replace coffee. The flavor is perfect. Calories are very low (I think 65 in a regular serving), and it has protein! I'll be drinking it every morning. If Big Train ever changes the formula, I will be SO upset!!!
Chocolate tastes like a high-end hot cocoa mix. Not only does it TASTE high end, but again, it's low-calorie and has protein. It'll be a great for the kids once they finish the Costco box of hot cocoa packets. Delicious!!
I'll probably buy vanilla in the summer when I want a cold drink. It tastes like old-fashioned ice cream.
Vanilla latte was also good. I'm more of a chocolate person, though, so I don't know what to compare it to. My bf loved it, he's a vanilla person.
Espresso was GROSS. Like another reviewer said, it just tastes like chemicals. I don't think we'll finish the 1/2 packet I have from the sample box.
I've been blending with 1 cup of unsweetened coconut milk, ice, and 2 c. organic baby spinach for an extra boost. Strange as the combination sounds, the frappe covers the taste of the spinach, and the combination keeps me going half the day. Love this stuff!

I love this product! I freeze leftover coffee in an ice cube tray then use the cubes to replace the ice called for. It tastes just like a coffee "blast" we used to get at Baskin Robbins - only LC. Highly recommended!!

Simply delicious, even if you don't love coffee. You can swear it was made in a coffee house. I plan to use this product, even after I finish my low carb diet. Be sure to order the individual packs, since the price for the can and the individual packs is basically the same and they are portable.

My husband is a diabetic. He takes no meds, but adheres strictly to diet and exercise. The one treat he missed was milk shakes, until we tried the Big Train mixes. They are superb and allow him to once again experience a treat very close to the real thing. By finely blending ice, adding a quarter cup of cream, a quarter cup of sugar free davinci flavoring, a quarter cup of calorie countdown dairy beverage and a quarter cup of water, and the latte mix, and reblending, he can have any flavor of ice cream soda he wants without effecting his blood sugar. Netrition is the best low carb site anywhere!

One of the hardest things about going low carb was giving up my daily Starbucks frappacinos. Big Train gave mocha drinks (and vanilla and caramel ones) back to me in such a way that I don't think I could go back to the Starbucks. It actually tastes better than the full carb coffee drinks I used to have. Thanks Big Train & Netrition!
Incredible product. I have lost a ton of weight replacing the below for breakfast or lunch. 1 part unsweetened almond milk. 1 part water,1 Splenda. 2 tablespoons PB2( another great product sold here)add ice and big train Mocha low carb blended mix, blend, and prepare for a thick, delicious drink that puts Starbucks and Baskin Robbins to shame while watching the weight melt off, enjoy
Wow, I am a great baker and make my own brownies, but my husband recently had a 4 way by pass operation, and I have to change some things for the better. Yes, we have sweet tooth's. CAN YOU SAY THESE THINGS ARE THE BEST? THEY ARE JUST GREAT. WONDERFUL TASTING, TEXTURE AND MOIST.
I do different things to makes them just a bit better, such as my favorite coffee cream. I add a little bit of that to the mixture. Also, just a little bit of something in these brownies adds so much to the already great taste. I melt a little bit of light cream cheese with the coffee cream of my choice and oh my gosh, these are the best tasting brownies, and I mean this. So rich and chocolate. You cannot go wrong with these brownies. If you are some one who has to watch your weight, or a diabetic or have to watch a heart healthy diet, please buy a lot of these, you will be happy you did and so will your stomach.
Excellent! I absolutely LOVE these. Will be buying lots more. So easy to make - just and egg and stick of butter. HOWEVER I melted a block of Philly Cream Cheese with 2 packets of Splenda and mixed in the top layer of the brownie mix before putting in the oven. I baked for 15 minutes.
Amazing! I did everything as the package says and added extra 2 table spoon of sour cream,2 table spoons of Splenda and some walnuts. Taste is great. There is no funny aftertaste that you usually get in low sugar sweets.
I saw that some people are baking it for longer than 15 minutes, but there is no need. All you have to do is let it cool and if you eat them at room temperature it will taste more like chocolate cake, but if you store it in the fridge it will get chewy like brownie consistency.
Also it says that it will make 16 brownies. I use "As seen on TV" brownie pan (about $20.00)and it makes 18 brownies. It's a perfect size I usually have 2 :)
I highly recommend this product. In fact I am getting some more.
OMG!!!!!!!!!! This is the best product I've found for a "brownie fix" since going low carb. Even my husband loved them & he's not on the low carb train! Easy to make, a great value for the money compared to the Dixie Diner version (which, by the way, is awful), yummy taste, excellent brownie texture. I would proudly serve these to anyone. My highest recommendation.

Oh my goodness. This pancake mix is unbelievably delicious. Super easy to make, these pancakes are light and fluffy. They are also super friendly to my blood sugar (I am diabetic). I eat them with sugar free blueberry syrup and it is like eating dessert for dinner. Cannot recommend this product enough and I do not like most low carb products. One tip----I added a little extra water to thin out the batter---first time I made these I followed the instructions exactly and my pancakes were large and thick---and did not cook completely in the middle. I added a little extra water next time which gave me more pancakes and they cooked through perfectly. I am now ordering 4 more packages!!
Great product. I'm on low carb diet and made waffles. So incredibly light. They also can be refrigerated and used next day in toaster and still taste great. It's a nice breakfast treat and also great with low carb ice cream!!!
Amazing! Bought this last week and had my first pancakes since starting Atkins in Jan 2012. Added fresh blueberries and 1 tsp of that Maltitol syrup and real butter. Tasted like homemade organic whole wheat pancakes you might get at your local earthy organic cafe. I'm buying MORE!
Here's the deal: Does Big Train taste exactly like regular pancakes? No, they don't. But, boy, it's close enough for me, a long-time low carber, to enjoy the heck out of my weekly pancake breakfast. I would recommend Big Train mix to anyone needing an occasional pancake/waffle treat without the guilt. Just ordered more and imagine I will continue ordering more well into the future.
After taking the first bite of the chocolate chip cookie, I told myself that this is too sweet to really be low carb. I must not have mixed them up right. I ran and checked my sugar, which was 91 (I am diabetic). After eating three decent sized cookies, and drinking a glass of soy milk, I checked my sugar one hour later: 100! How in the world do they do it? Everyone is right, the cookies have a cake-like texture, reminds me of the soft cookies that you buy in the store. Also, guess what? I used blue bonnett instead of butter, and better than eggs instead of real eggs. Still absolutely delicious! What a treat!

Wow, I'm very impressed with these! Very nice flavor. The batch I made came out with a very soft texture, but I don't care. Gotta love great tasting low-carb cookies!
Be aware however that the nutritional information listed here is incorrect. The recipe has you add egg and butter and neither of those are factored into the nutritional information listed here. So it's actually fairly high in fat and calories, but the carbs are still low.
I love these cookies. I have to hide them from my family. I get a mini muffin pan and put a small scoop in each muffin hole, I bake it and take them out and place sugar free mini reese's cups in the middle of them right away before they have time to cool. Another tip is to add the carb free peanut flavoring if you like. The cookies are good alone too but the peanut butter cup helps with the dryness. Remember the sugar free peanut butter cups have Sugar alcohols, so eating to many may upset your stomach.
This review is specific to Low Carb Cookie Mix, Peanut Butter
The chocolate chip cookies have a soft chewy texture like the real thing aaaan you can eat the dough. My husband nearly ate the whole batch at once. The peanut butter cookies are in some ways even better. The texture is better. You have to let these cookies cool for a while though.
Big Train has the BEST low carb products I have tried so far. I have been enjoying the hot cocoa mix since Feb. 2004 and I highly recommend it! The cocoa is not too sweet, no funny after taste and does not at all taste "diet" like. It has a fantastic flavor and I drink it even when I fall off the low carb wagon.
I was shocked at how good the hot chocolate mix was.. I just re-ordered and opted for the 2 lb can. I took the mix to work with me for an afternoon treat :) I didn't even add the half-n-half but I'm sure that a dash of cream would make it even better. I did add one splenda to it because I like my drinks sweeter than it was originally. I would recommend this to everyone who is watching carbs or sugar. I've been on Atkins for about 2 1/2 years now and have discovered a lot of "keepers" here at Netrition. The Big Train hot cocoa was one of them!
This is really, really good. I am particularly happy that Big Train uses erythritol and no maltitol (evil stuff I think is the primary cause behind failed low carb diets).
It tastes great and is quite low in carbs. I use heavy cream instead of half & half as it is lower in carbs and you don't need to use as much. I recommend adding the cream directly to the hot chocolate mix and mixing it into a consistent slurry before adding the hot water. This really helps eliminate floating clumps.
The only negative I can mention is that it does settle out more quickly than regular hot chocolate mix, so just get in the habit of giving it a stir every few sips.
I also really love this added to coffee for a very nice mocha treat.
When added to hot coffee, this product makes incredibly delicious CAFE MOCHA. I am totally addicted to this wonderful flavor addition to my coffee. Beats the competition at ST*******! Product used by Clyde's wife, Wendy.
Netrition now carries the 2 pound can of Spiced Chai mix.. I was just visiting family and we had a pouch of the mix.. Everyone loved it so much it was gone within a few days!! It is great that we can order the bigger can now.. In fact I am fixin to order it for my aunt and mom.. I love all the Big Train products! I am hoping they will come out with more products.. Maybe the smoothies.. Thank you for carrying this product!!!
