Starbucks Debuts Two New Breakfast Options For 2017


By Cooking Panda

Starbucks is getting extra unique on us for 2017, ya’ll, and we think we like it!

Starting on Jan. 10, the mega-popular coffee chain will release its first new menu items of the New Year, and they are going all out for the most important meal of the day — breakfast!

Two years ago, the Starbucks food team began the development process for these babies, so you know they’re executed to perfection: participating stores in the U.S. will offer Sous Vide Egg Bites, which are essentially ultra-healthy breakfast eggs that are cooked with wholesome ingredients, and do not require extra oil or fat to achieve a yummy texture.

“People are more conscious of what they are eating,” Eveline Chao-Rivera, Starbucks brand manager, said on the chain’s press release. “Many are skipping out on bread and focusing on nutritious protein to fuel their increasingly busy days.”

Cuisine Solutions, a company that has expertise in sous-vide cooking, teamed up with Starbucks over the course of several months to debut a product that comes in two flavors, tastes super velvety and creamy, but is also nutritious. Both of the flavors are wheat-free and packed with protein.

Bacon and Gruyere

Boasting 19 grams of protein, two bacon and Gruyere bites ring in at 310 calories and are described as follows: “Velvety cage-free eggs with aged Gruyere and Monterey Jack cheese are topped with a layer of Applewood smoked bacon.”

Egg White and Roasted Red Pepper

The vegetarian version of the bites rings in at 170 calories per two-bite serving, and also comes with a generous 13 grams of protein. The website describes them as: “Cage-free egg whites with Monterey Jack and creamy cottage cheese, accentuated by spinach and fire-roasted red pepper.”
