- The new plans in not the first time the coffee giant has introduced vegan food options in its menu.
- Recently, the company also tested some of its vegan options across its Seattle and Chicago locations.
Starbucks Corporation, the renowned American coffee company, has unveiled its plans to introduce new vegan food options in its menu. The latest plan reportedly comes with a catch though; the company would be rolling out these food options across its UK stores.
The Seattle-based company has never been reserved when providing its customers the options they want. In fact, over the past couple of years, where veganism trend skyrocketed, the did not hesitate to expand its menu with a couple of vegan food items.
The Starbucks menu chart has featured everything from a veggie and lentils protein bowl with strawberry and brown rice and toasted almonds, to its numerous vegan baked goods such as cauliflower tabbouleh salad and macadamia oat cookie.
The company even tested these vegan options across its Seattle and Chicago locations earlier in 2019. Now, new vegan options are set to continue this trend and rollout across Starbucks stores, the catch being that they would only be available across its UK stores.
The two new items to be unveiled include a ‘Smoky Jackfruit & Grains’ bowl, which is filled with pulled smoky barbeque jackfruit, spiced red pepper sauce, smoky grain mix and smoked vegan cheese; and a ‘Vegan Chocolate & Raspberry Mini Cake’ a small vegan loaf cake that is injected with a raspberry flavor jam and then topped with dried raspberry and pink icing.
According to sources privy to the matter, the company would also likely launch its latest Vegan Chocolate & Coconut Overnight Oats across its stores in the UK soon. The UK stores already boast of a dedicated list of vegan options in their menus, which features dishes like barbeque vegan wrap with coleslaw and jackfruit, mac ‘n’ cheese (dairy free), and tofu breakfast burrito.
Meanwhile, the company has not unveiled when it plans to rollout these new vegan items in its U.S. stores.
