Basic Bitch Alert! Starbucks now has a satiating plant-based protein box, perfect for on-the-go or at your desk eating!
I tested the at the desk method today, and it was perfection. Chickpea Bites which are like a less dry falafel situation, baby carrots and snap peas for the added cool crunch, avocado spread (seasoned like guacamole, but without the chunks), and a salted almond, pumpkin seed, and dried cranberry snack mix. I feel full and am stoked about the potential future of plant-based convenience.
I paired my box with Insta’s favorite “Pink Drink”. Vegan on it’s own, it is a customer creation that made it’s way to the permanent menu. A Strawberry Açaí Refresher made with Coconut Milk, it is noted to reminisce the flavor of a pink Starburst. But I will have to take your word for it! It’s pink, and sweet, and vegan, so that’s all I need to know to be a fan!
This wasn’t necessarily up next in my flurry of planned posts, but I had to share! It is not often a vegan has the option to grab an item from the cooler and just “check out”. We no longer have to wait in line and waiver as to whether we should purchase a box containing items will will not consume, but still contribute to its production, simply for a quick bite to eat. We do not have to pick anything out of the new protein box, it is vegan as-is. Hallelujah, the Starbucks Goddess has finally answered our pleas.
Now to remove the plant-based milk upcharge? I will not push our luck, but I will continue to push..
