New Vegan Option at Starbucks

Corporate coffee king goes beyond soy lattes and introduces a vegan-friendly meal to its Bistro Box line.

Starbucks unveiled a totally vegan food menu item on Tuesday to correspond with its announcement of new summertime lunch boxes and iced coffee beverages. According to a company spokesperson, the Sesame Noodles Bistro Box contains no animal products and features “creamy peanut dressing” and “baked tofu with lightly spiced lime glaze” in addition to an array of vegetables. The meat-free option comes as good news to vegans and vegetarians who can’t kick their Starbucks habit but enjoy a little bit of sustenance from time to time, too. Starbucks is the largest coffee company in the world with roughly 17,000 franchises worldwide.
