It seems like everyone’s getting on the plant based bandwagon these days. The home of the world’s most famous overpriced cup of coffee is no exception.
I checked out Starbucks’s new Impossible Breakfast sandwich the other day. It was kind of a treat to myself after a hellishly busy couple of consecutive days. We paid over 20 bucks for two sandwiches, two coffee drinks, and a chocolate chip cookie. The tastiness of the sandwich almost justified the cash expenditure.
The sandwich tastes a lot like a McDonalds sausage McMuffin with egg, with a MUCH better bun…and a better tasting egg. (Maybe it’s not like the one at McDonalds at all…)
I sampled the “sausage” patty very slowly and deliberately, and trust me: you will NEVER know you’re not eating pork. The pricey drink in question was a Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew. I’m not one of those pumpkin spice maniacs, but this drink was good!
I’ve been on a fitness kick this year, determined to not allow COVID restrictions and shut ins to drive my blood pressure and cholesterol back up, so I’ve been leaning more into plant-based fare. That said, I have refused to give up taste.
Thanks to Starbucks’s Impossible breakfast sandwich, I don’t have to.
