Starbucks adds a new vegan option

If you’ve been sitting out on coffee break runs, consider this your chance to tag back in.

Pop Sugar (and about one hundred other blogs) announced that 600 Starbucks locations across New York have rolled out a new vegan menu item; overnight grains. The parfait-like breakfast item blends steel cut oats, quinoa, and chia seeds together with coconut milk, shaved coconut and almonds. Served in the cold case section of the store, it’s basically a jazzed up version of the internet’s beloved overnight oats, for those who don’t have the forethought to prepare breakfast before bed.

Ringing in at a hearty 360 calories with 6 grams of protein, they’re hoping to leverage the popularity of their other best-selling, protein-heavy options (none of which are vegan) with the current sensationalism of plant-based eating. At least it’s a much healthier option than the Justin’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups that stare down vegans at the cash.

With an abundance of great vegan options on every corner in New York, time will tell if this item is a success for the coffee chain, and if it rolls out to their other trillion locations.

  • If anyone else dared to write about a new vegan Starbucks product, you’d be all over them for promoting a non-vegan company. It’s really quite amusing to watch such a lack of editorial consistency.

    Thats a helluva lot of calories for only 6 grams of protein.
    Leave it up to corporate america to fatten everyone up while providing minimal nutritional value.

France’s ban of faux-meat branding won’t stop veganism

I’ll take “mycoproteinous food tube” over a tube of dead pig any day.

Concerned about endangered animals? Stop eating them

Methods of animal conservation that support the exploitation of animals don’t exist for the animals, they exist for human profit.

What you can do if live exports disturb you

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
