I got mom a tin of Nestle Nutren Optimum 400g after trying out few samples hubby brought back from a newly opened pharmacy in Puteri IOI, Puchong. I got the first tin from Guardian at Ikano Power for RM29.90. I then hopped over to Tesco nearby and was shocked to see the price tagged at RM36.80, if I remembered correctly. My impression was that prices at the supermarkets should be lower than that at the pharmacies, right, well, I was wrong.

While doing my marketing with papa at the Tropicana City, PJ the other day, I walked into Caring Pharmacy and the price gave me another shock, only RM19.90 per tin but that was a promotion pack larr. I quickly grabbed the 2 tins on the shelf and asked the shop assistant to check if they have any more stocks available. The remaining stock on the shelf was their last batch of stock available.

I initially wanted to get Prosure by Abbott but ended up with Nestle Nutren Optimum after comparing the ingredients, they were almost similar and Prosure had lighter weight content by 20gram and priced at RM45++ per tin, almost doubled the price of Nutren Optimum. Guess the higher price contribution was from branding and Abbot's aggressive advertisement and emphasis on special fomulation mainly for cancer patients.

Hi, I bought it from Caring Pharmacy but recently I find it hard to get the stock and change to Ensure instead.
