HOBOKEN, New Jersey , June 21, 2023 (press release) –

Carnation Breakfast Essentials launched two new nutritional drink flavors inspired by some of the most popular Girl Scout Cookies – Carnation Breakfast Essentials Girl Scout Thin Mints and Carnation Breakfast Essentials Girl Scout Coconut Caramel Flavored Nutritional Drinks. Packed with 10 grams of protein and 21 vitamins and minerals, families can experience a fresh way to enjoy the flavor of Girl Scout Cookies, now in a convenient, gluten-free breakfast drink to help them get a bright start to their day.

“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,” said Mohini Joshi, Vice President of Brand Marketing, Nestlé Health Science USA. “We are committed to providing families products that continue to delight through taste and nutrition.”

Carnation Breakfast Essentials Nutritional Drinks are rich in protein and provide an excellent source of 21 vitamins and minerals to help meet daily nutritional needs. Nutritionally appropriate for kids ages 4 years and older, teens, and adults, each 8 fl oz. bottle of a Carnation Breakfast Essentials Nutritional Drink helps:

Build Strong Bones with Calcium and Vitamin D: 300 mg or 25 percent of the Daily Value of Calcium, which is twice the calcium of a 5.3 oz cup of Greek yogurt1, and 10 mcg (400 IU) or 50 percent of the Daily Value of Vitamin D, which is triple the Vitamin D of an 8 fl oz glass of milk.1

Support Growing Muscles with Protein: 10 grams of protein, which is as much protein as 1½ large eggs.1

About Girl Scouts of the USA

Girl Scouts bring their dreams to life and work together to build a better world. Through programs from coast to coast, Girl Scouts of all backgrounds and abilities can be unapologetically themselves as they discover their strengths and rise to meet new challenges—whether they want to climb to the top of a tree or the top of their class, lace up their boots for a hike or advocate for climate justice, or make their first best friends. Backed by trusted adult volunteers, mentors, and millions of alums, Girl Scouts lead the way as they find their voices and make changes that affect the issues most important to them.
