News: Starbucks - New La Boulange Breakfast Sandwiches

Starbucks is currently rolling out four new breakfast sandwiches under their La Boulange bakery line.

To promote the new sandwiches, from March 12 to 14, participating Starbucks stores will offer a free 16-oz Grande brewed coffee with the purchase of any breakfast sandwich.

The new sandwiches are the Slow-Roasted Ham & Swiss Croissant, Vegetable & Fontiago Breakfast Sandwich, Egg & Cheddar Breakfast Sandwich, and Reduced Fat Turkey Bacon Breakfast Sandwich.

The Slow-Roasted Ham & Swiss Croissant features slow-roasted ham (prosciutto cotto specifically), a fried egg patty, and Swiss cheese on a warm croissant. It costs $4.45 (may vary), a new high for Starbucks breakfast sandwiches.
