Inspired by the iconic Girl Scout Cookies, Carnation Breakfast Essentials launched two new drink flavors: Girl Scouts Thin Mints and Girl Scout Coconut Caramel. Both drinks have been designed to taste like the flavor of Girl Scout Cookies that parents and kids love, the company states.
The two flavored nutritional drinks also are packed with 10 grams of protein and 21 vitamins and minerals in a convenient, gluten-free breakfast drink designed to help families get a bright start to their day, notes the Hoboken, N.J.-based company.
"We understand parents want to provide breakfast and snack options that spark their kids' tastebuds while serving up protein and essential vitamins and minerals. That's why we're proud to align with Girl Scouts of the USA through this new licensing arrangement to offer families Carnation Breakfast Essentials nutritional drinks inspired by some of the most iconic Girl Scout Cookie™ flavors," says Mohini Joshi, vice president of brand marketing at Nestlé Health Science USA. "We are committed to providing families products that continue to delight through taste and nutrition."
Nutritionally appropriate for kids ages 4 years and older, teens and adults, each 8-ounce bottle of a Carnation Breakfast Essentials Nutritional Drink helps:
• Build Strong Bones with calcium and vitamin D: 300 mg or 25% of the daily value of calcium, which is twice the calcium of a 5.3-ounce cup of Greek yogurt, and 10 mcg (400 IU) or 50% of the daily value of vitamin D.
• Support Growing Muscles with protein: 10 grams of protein, which is as much protein as 1½ large eggs.
• Provide vitamins C and D, key nutrients for immune support: 90 mg or 100% of the daily value of vitamin C, which is as much vitamin C as a medium orange, and 10 mcg or 50% of the daily value of vitamin D.
