Starbucks, the nation’s leading coffee chain, is now selling the Impossible Breakfast Sandwich as part of its new summer menu alongside new cold coffee beverages. The Impossible Breakfast Sandwich features Impossible Sausage Made from Plants, which is combined with a cage-free fried egg and aged cheddar cheese and served on an artisanal ciabatta bread.
The plant-based sausage is made by Impossible Foods based in Redwood City, CA.
With 22 grams of protein, the new breakfast sandwich is available now at the majority of Starbucks locations throughout the U.S.
“We’re pleased to add the Impossible Breakfast Sandwich, made with Impossible plant-based sausage, to Starbucks menu in the U.S., to meet the growing customer-interest in plant-based options” said Michael Kobori, chief sustainability officer at Starbucks. “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.”
“Starbucks’ commitment to add more plant-based ingredients to its menu is a new benchmark for large corporations,” said Dr. Patrick O. Brown, Founder and CEO of Impossible Foods. “Impossible Foods is making plant-based foods that deliver unrivaled taste, nutrition and convenience. We’re excited to work with Starbucks, which shares our mission to make the global food system sustainable.”
Starbucks customers can also order two new beverages: Cold Brew with Cinnamon Almondmilk Foam and Cold Brew with Dark Cocoa Almondmilk Foam.
