You know you live under a rock when you're day is highlighted by the latest flavor of Boost!  They now make a peach and a raspberry smoothie!  I was on the verge of taking the blender to work for variety!

I was just looking at the Boost and Ensures yeterday and didn't see the new flavor. I will have to keep my eye out for it. I'm always looking for new flavors.

Broom...I tried banana something or other once so I can't advise until my brain clicks if it was Ensure or boost or pediasure or what. I wasn't thrilled as it had a "tinny" taste to me.
Don't take the blender. Get a mini food processor, they are great. I took mine to my office. It holds about a cup and a half. Enough room to add a banana to one bottle choc ensure and mix in two seconds. It takes up less space than an elec. can opener and it was made by Black and decker if you look for one.

I love a poat titled Yipeeeee.  I am glad you found something new to add to your meal plan.  You guys should brainstorm new flavors and send the companies some ideas.
