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.

It’s kinda like the one at Mickey D’s…except the patty and bun…and probably the cheese…are much better! And it’s plant-based! Photo courtesy of Coleman Communications.

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.
