Finally a Vegan sandwich option from Starbucks!
As soon as I heard the whispers about this one, my ears pricked up with excitement. I am addicted to their Soy Mocha Frappuccino and always massively disappointed that their only food option is fruit – ew!
The Christmas before last they had a festive flatbread which was Vegan and it was just OK, I was a little apprehensive and had low expectations about the new offering.
I called into my local branch to see if they had it and when I saw that they did, I squealed a little (did I mention I’m a massive loser?).
GOOD LORD, WOMAN, JUST TELL US IF IT’S NICE ALREADY!!
Jeez, OK. Let me quickly tell you what is first –
Kale, Jalapeño and Slaw Wrap
Crushed corn, kale and jalapeño bites mixed with a Californian inspire slaw, spinach and a hot chilli relish.
It was fricken delicious! Packed full of flavour, so many different tastes going on and they all worked together.
It’s spicy, it’s tangy, it’s creamy (the butternut squash). It’s an unusual taste combination but it works so well! Word of warning it is a little spicy.
I really hope they will keep this on the menu as I’m salivating at the thought of having another one, with Summer creeping in, I think I’m going to be sneaking off to my local Starbucks a lot!
