Another notable addition to the menu this summer is the plant based Impossible Breakfast Sandwich, available at the majority of locations in the US. Note: THIS SANDWICH IS NOT DAIRY FREE. This is the first time Starbucks will be adding a vegan meat option to its menu in the US, but this sandwich does contain dairy-based cheese and real eggs. No word yet if the Impossible Patty can be combined with nondairy options, as these sandwiches are not made-to-order.
