Well, lookie here. Starbucks Coffee Shops are now selling a PB+J sandwich.
I'm no longer ashamed to admit to eating Starbucks food. I mean, it's 2015 now. We can all be ok with admitting this. But remember when Starbucks first came out selling food several years ago and we were all like, "Um, stick to coffee Starbucks." But then we tried the breakfast sandwiches when we were traveling and were like, "Oh, this is kind of good." And then, there was that time when we were in between meetings and really needed to eat, but didn't have time for a proper lunch and so we were like, "Oh Starbucks has a BLT sandwich. Let's try that." And like, it was good. No? Maybe it was just me then.
Today, the food options at Starbucks are still an easy and somewhat healthy meal that most importantly, you can pick up quickly. (Provided it's not 3pm and there are no teenagers who just got out of school are in front of you ordering complex Frappucino drinks. You are the worst generation, I swear.) And the boxed snack options are rather good for my toddlers, who really only want to eat cheese and fruit anyways.
But now, there's a sandwich that at least one of my kids will eat--PB+J on wheat bread. The boxed meal also comes with a couple of slices of cucumbers, a handful of carrots, Greek yogurt dressing, a part-skim mozzarella cheese stick, apple slices and a palmful of chocolate-covered raisins. You can check the nutrition information here but the meal is 450 calories with 23 grams of fat.
By no means do we eat Starbucks every day, nor even every week, but when we're out exploring or on an adventure (I count Target runs as an "adventure" FYI), Starbucks can be kind of a clutch stop when you f
orget to pack run out of your own snacks. Even better, if it's a drive-thru Starbucks.
Another good option can be found at Whole Foods which makes their own snack boxes. These can be found in the prepared foods/meals section. Some have turkey and cheese slices with crackers so you can make your own little sandwiches, others have tuna and crackers. Almost all of the Whole Foods snack boxes have both vegetables and fruit slices too. I took a picture of one of these a long time and now I can't find it. Go figure. Will add it in when I find it again. #Never.
