Golden Grahams

goldengrahams.jpgI have a few trusty breakfast cereals that I always eat, but recently I got adventurous and bought a box of Golden Grahams. I don’t recall having ever eaten it, but it looked like a cereal that I would enjoy. I was not impressed by the taste of the cereal, having expected a stronger graham flavor and more sweetness. I also found that the cereal got soggy in the milk too quickly. Just to be confident in my conclusions, I also tried it my second favorite way of eating breakfast cereal – straight out of the box. Again, I didn’t like it all that much. Soggy, mediocre-tasting cereal makes a poor breakfast (or lunch, or dinner…), so I guess I’ll have to continue looking for a new cereal to add to my cupboard.

Phoood rating: So-so

For the first time I can recall, I disagree with the rating. I like the honeyed taste of GG's just fine; yes, they get soggy in milk but you have to eat them quickly.

Golden Grahams were a lot tastier back before General Mills got all 'Whole Grain Goodness' on us. The same can be said for their Count Chocula line, Lucky Charms and other former childhood favorites. Boo!

What I usually do with my cereals is pour just enough milk so that there's only a drip or two left after the cereal's gone. In typical cereals like Cheerios and Golden Grahams, this is essential.

Golden Grahams has always been one of my all-time favorite cereals. But you're right, the flavor is not as awesome as it was when I was a kid.

I agree about them getting soggy quick. I disagree about the taste, I rather enjoy a bowl or two of Golden Grahms
