Golden Grahams

If I am not mistaken, a fan who watches Cereal Wednesday on YouTube has been asking for NYCWD to review Golden Grahams since before I even visited with him in the airport for our Booberry episode. That’s a long time, so I am finally making that one fan’s wish come true!

Golden Grahams is a wheat based cereal square that does taste like a plain graham cracker. I like graham crackers so I liked the taste of Golden Grahams. Nothing stellar to report, just a solid tasting cereal. But during the sog all its grahammy goodness falls into the bowl and the texture of the square goes from crunchy to gross. Oh well.

Nutrition information for Golden Grahams is hit or miss:

Fiber and protein are lacking, but the vitamins and minerals are decent. And only one allergen is listed, the main ingredient of wheat. But my Celiac-ridden friend said that sometimes corn meal itself isn’t free of wheat so even without the wheat as the main ingredient it’d be a good idea for people with Celiac Disease to be cautious when consuming this product, or for you to contact General Mills directly and demand to know if the corn meal is pure or has other grains added.

Good taste, but deductions for sog and incomplete nutrition.

Taste: Tastes like graham crackers
Box opening: Easy
Bag rippage: None
Bag slippage: Just a tiny bit of slip
Sog factor: Yucky texture during the sog and the flavor falls into the bowl
Allergy alert: Contains wheat

    Not sure what to make of this new, rebellious attitude… Needs more green mohawk to go with it, I think. Golden Grahams seem okay. Just okay.

  2. So… Golden Grahams need to be eaten quickly or in small servings for maximum pre-sog enjoyment? I can see that. I really like the cereal, but I overdosed on it a while back and am taking a break. Of course, now I am craving Golden Grahams, so thanks for that! :-)
