Starbucks Japan's New American-Style Sandwiches Include Banana and Bacon

Starting April 15, 2014, Starbucks Japan will introduce a line up of five "American-style" sandwiches including a Banana & Bacon Sandwich that's decidedly lowbrow for Starbucks and perhaps better known here in the US as the Elvis.

Besides the Banana & Bacon Sandwich, there's also more run-of-the-mill items like an Egg Sandwich, Honey Ham & Cheddar Sandwich, Clubhouse Sandwich, and Teriyaki Chicken Sandwich.

Here's what you can expect from each sandwich (pictured above from left to right):

Banana & Bacon Sandwich - Peanut butter, bacon, and banana on sliced bread. It carries a price tag of 450 yen (~$3.75 US).

Egg Sandwich - A Spanish omelet that includes spinach, potato, red bell pepper, edamame, and onion on sliced barley bread with some lettuce. It's priced at 440 yen (~$3.69 US).

Honey Ham & Cheddar Sandwich - Honey ham, red cheddar cheese, and green leaf lettuce on barley bread. It'll go for 480 yen (~$4 US).

Clubhouse Sandwich - Chicken, smoked bacon, soft-boiled egg, tomatoes, and green leaf lettuce plus the requisite three slices of whole grain bread. It's the priciest of the bunch at 550 yen (~$4.59 US).

Teriyaki Chicken Sandwich - Teriyaki chicken with teriyaki sauce, cheddar cheese, tomato, green leaf lettuce, and a wasabi mayo on sliced bread. The price on this one is 480 yen (~$4 US).

I guess it makes sense to offer the Banana & Bacon Sandwich in Japan, as it's likely customers there are not going to make one at home as you typically would here in the US.
