Today is the first day that you can now get the all-new Starbucks Beyond Meat Breakfast Sandwich across Quebec and Canada. \nI ran out to my closest Starbucks this morning to be one of the first to give it a try.\nHere is my honest opinion...\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nLast week we announced that Starbucks would officially be adding a Beyond Meat Breakfast Sandwich to their menu for those coffee lovers who need a little something more in the morning but aren't interested in meat. Well, it has officially arrived and, as per usual, I scurried to the store early this morning to snatch one up and give it a try. If you're looking for an honest review of the Starbucks Beyond Meat Breakfast Sandwich from someone who does still occasionally eat meat, here it is.\nI think it's important to preface this article with the honest truth, which is that I do still eat meat on a semi-regular basis. Though for a period of about 5 years, I didn't eat any red meat or poultry, so I am very familiar with the world of meat alternatives.\nSo I'm not coming at this as someone who is expecting the sandwich to taste like a real meat patty, but I also know the difference between a meat alternative that is working (aka is delicious) and one that is not.\nSo here are some of my thoughts on the all-new Starbucks Beyond Meat Breakfast Sandwich.\nFor $5.95, the sandwich consists of a homemade bun, cheddar cheese, an egg and a vegetable-based patty. The Starbucks Beyond Meat patty was designed with a unique recipe that consists of a "special blend of herbs and spices, including oregano, basil, rosemary and fennel."\nLena Slanisky | MTL Blog\nThe size is about the same as any other small breakfast sandwich, like a Sausage Egg McMuffin from McDonald's, for example, which retails for $4.19.\nThe increased price is to be expected though. This is Starbucks, after all, and the Beyond Meat does inevitably cause a mark-up.\nREAD ALSO: I Tried Coca-Cola's All New "Quebec Maple" Flavour & Here's My Honest Opinion\nThe sandwich itself is really good and I'm pretty sure I would order it again... even if the price is a little steep.\nThe unique blend of spices does a good job at working with the really distinct Beyond Meat taste which I have found overwhelming in other sandwiches that include the popular meat alternative.\nLena Slanisky | MTL Blog\nI also tried the now late Tim Hortons Beyond Meat breakfast offerings when they first launched and I would say the Starbucks sandwich is superior.\nIt was juicy and flavourful, not at all dry and the spices are really delicious. This sandwich works on its own and as a meat alternative.\nWhereas with the Tim Hortons sandwiches, I really liked the wrap because it had a super flavourful southwest chipotle sauce, I found the Starbucks Beyond Meat Breakfast Sandwich to be really satisfying as is, no sauce required.\nLena Slanisky | MTL Blog\nI think this is going to be a great option for vegetarians as well as anyone who is simply open to choosing a non-meat option now and then.\nAs for the vegans... I guess we're just going to have to wait and see if Starbucks comes up with something for y'all soon.
