    Pickle you're posting a lot of redundant questions. Please use the search function. You will likely discover 20 threads on carnation instant breakfast as it is wildly popular with hikers.

    A large number of questions posted are redundant, and that is because it is difficult to find the info you want using the search function on this forum.

    Try using google instead. I searched "Carnation whiteblaze.net" using google and was linked directly to a bunch of threads on this site.

    Ask all the questions you want. Nobody has to answer if they don't want to.

    Regarding the search feature, it seems different depending on which app you are going thru to access White Blaze. I know of two apps: Tap-a-Talk and the Whiteblaze app. I haven't figured out how to search in Tap-aTalk. I can search in the White Blaze app. But Google has the most robust search ability. I think you put the forum name in single quotes followed by the search string. If I'm wrong about the format, please chime in. I would also be interested in knowing which app yall prefer to use to access Whie Blaze on your phone. Forum runner was mentioned in another thread, but it is not available in the Google Play Store.

    Post all you want, and ignore the comments that aren’t helpful.

    Maybe it's me but this forum has slowed down in the last couple years, I would think any post would be good.

    Slowed down? That's an understatement. Been a member for well over 10 years and lurked for a while before that. This site has become a ghost town. Seems counter productive to encourage folks NOT to post questions...

    Facebook

    Several years ago, Whiteblaze seemed to be THE place on the internet to go to ask hiking related questions.

    The only competition seemed to be Yahoo groups, and they sucked (difficult to use, too email-intrusive).

    But today, lots of people already know how to use Facebook. So learning to use a Facebook 'group' is a no-brainer compared to the complexity of Yahoo groups.


    So today, I'm seeing the questions that used to get repeated here in WB getting repeated in the targeted groups on Facebook.

    I think I have posted up my instant Breakfast concoction several times. Even got a few thanks.
    I hope I helped a little.
    BTW. One of those snack bags in the morning keeps me going until noon. And a lot of protein!
    All the best to you!

    Folks are trying to be helpful. Dont let it bother you Pickle. I've done like you've done and have as others have.

    Yeah you can use H20 in the Carnation Essential but it does cut down on the cal/oz and overall nutrition. It does taste and texturize 'watered down' with skim/no fat milk or water. When using it in the past with water rather than milk my perception was that it was harder to integrate the dry mix into liquid particularly with coldish water. Maybe use warmed water?

    I've liked this stuff since the old days when it was called "Instant Breakfast." And as others do, I add Nido, which is whole milk.

    Been here since 2003. Duplicate threads are common and always have been. Search function barely helps ... but is sure better than Facebook's!!!

    When people,especially new people,get flamed for asking a simple question or making a benign comment is there really any wonder? WB is a mere shadow of it's former self.

    Exactly correct.

    On a slight tangent, when I worked in the ICU, some of our patients were gastric bypass and short bowel sufferers. A couple Gastrointestinal specialty Docs routinely prescribed carnation instant breakfast with whole or skim milk, or goat milk depending on caloric needs and allergies. They felt this stuff with added real milk was nutritionally equal or superior to the canned “Ensure” type products, and their many formulated relatives made by pharma companies. It was also pennies rather than dollars for the patients when they went home, greatly increasing the possibility of nutritional compliance, and ultimate healing.

    Im sure the recipe has chanced somewhat, but this product is still among the better choices for nutrition commonly available.

    I like a packet of French vanilla with 1/4 cup Nido, 1tsp of instant coffee. Shake till smooth. I keep this concoction in the car, in a baggie in the clean shaker bottle. Stop for some ice water at the gas station. much better than Micki D’s in a pinch, and the local Starbucks (my occasional splurge) has become very spotty in quality. This would work great on trail.

    Happy hiking. There will always be trolls, most turn out to be great people who are having an off moment, a few really do belong under a bridge.
