Starbucks has announced it will begin selling a plant-based breakfast sandwich made with Impossible sausage as part of its summer menu. The sandwich will also contain a cage-free fried egg and aged cheddar cheese and will be served on ciabatta bread.
The new sandwich joins other menu options Starbucks has released in recent years as more consumers seek to reduce their meat consumption. “Over the years, in response to customer interest, we have added plant-based milk alternatives such as soy, coconut, almond, and oat milk. We are thrilled to expand our plant-based menu into food with this new breakfast sandwich,” Michael Kobori, chief sustainability officer at Starbucks, said in announcing the sandwich.
Also on the summer menu are two cold-brew coffee-based beverages with almond milk foam flavored with either cinnamon or dark cocoa. In California and the Midwest, Starbucks will also sell Cold Brew with Cinnamon Oatmilk foam, expanding the availability of oat milk to new markets.
The new cold brew beverages will cost between $4.45 and $4.75, while the Impossible Breakfast Sandwich will be priced between $4.95 and $5.25.
