About the product
Rated 4 out of 5 by BusyMom from Good drink but my picky eater passed on it. I looked over all the nutrition information on this drink and loved that it has 2X the amount of Vitamin D of an 8 fl oz glass of milk and as much calcium as a 6 oz cup of yogurt. I also loved that this is a prepackaged easy to transport drink that can be packed in a lunch box or slipped in a to-go bag for road trips. I thought since my son likes milk and likes Golden Grahams that he would like this. He's a very picky eater and didn't care for it. I'm going to try again in a few months since sometimes he grows into new flavors. I'd love the convenience of this as a snack option for him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LorDoc from Wow! I’m not a big nutritional drink person but, I have to say I am quite impressed with this product. The Carnation Breakfast Golden Grahams Flavored drink is pretty good. If you like the flavor, your going to love this drink. It’s smooth and not chalky at all. Not to mention that being a nutritional drink is a plus! Sometimes I don’t have time to make a breakfast and being able to grab and go with this product is a nice thing. No more rushing off in the morning without eating. I’m just going to grab one of these and go. Trust me when I say this is going to be on my shopping list.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jmayer81 from Not a great flavor I lovr the original Carnation Instant Breakfast so I thought new flavors would be interesting. Golden Grahams is my favorite cereal so I was convinced I would like this, but unfortunately it is disgusting. The flavor is reminiscent of Golden Grahams but it has a bitter aftertaste and is far too sweet. The most off putting aspect is that its thick, so it has a strange texture on top of it. I couldnt drink more than half, but I did feel like I had eaten something substantial, so it is filling. I would not try this flavor again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gypseiz from Calorie dense meal alternative I wasn’t sure quite what to expect with this other than anticipating it being sweet like the cereal. My anticipation was correct and the flavor is about the same. It’s best compared to drinking the milk after having a bowl of Golden Grahams cereal. Nutritionally speaking, it’s higher in calories, has 10 grams of protein and a substantial amount of added sugars (15 grams). It has quite a few of minerals and vitamins which is a plus. Overall not a bad taste, or a quick calorie dense snack. It’s not overly filling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kurr from Absolutely delicious! I'm not a big breakfast person, but sometimes you gotta have a little something to get started when there's a big day ahead. This nutritional drink tastes EXACTLY like the cereal does. All the flavor, plenty of nutrients, and none of the chewing or dishes! Sign me up. The drink has a good consistency, it's not close to goopy or anything like that. Just a really good cereal flavored breakfast in a convenient package. If you're on the fence, I'd say definitely give it a try. You won't regret it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CoyJ from Great coffee creamer substitute I tried Carnation Breakfast Essentials Golden Grahams Flavored Nutritional Drink and it seemed very rich in an almond flavor, almost overbearing. My ten year old daughter tried it and she wasn't too enthusiastic about the flavor either. I couldn't drink much of it by itself, but it tasted great when I added a small amount to my black coffee for a little creamy almond flavor. The drink didn't taste bad, it was just really rich and didn't taste much at all like Golden Grahams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Xtinah from Love! The Carnation Breakfast Essentials Golden Grahams flavored nutritional drink is a great product! I have been getting the regular flavors and my kids like them but this flavor is just like golden grahams cereal and they love it! I have to remind them it is only once a day for breakfast. The packaging is easy to use easy to open bottles and of course resealable with the cap. I Love that this is such a healthy nutritious drink but it also tastes good!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Timmy11 from Tastes great! This is a great drink to have for breakfast if you are in a hurry and don't want to spend time to put something together. I really enjoy the taste of it, tastes a lot like Golden Grahams, which I love. It has a good amount of vitamins and protein but I took one star off because of the high amount of carbs in it. I tend to lay low on carbs so this was a little high for my diet. Other than that, it is a great breakfast drink/meal.
