News: Starbucks - New Grilled Cheese and Turkey Pesto Panini

Starbucks expands their lunch selection this summer with two new sandwiches: the Turkey Pesto Panini and the Old-Fashioned Grilled Cheese.

The new Turkey Pesto Panini features turkey, provolone cheese, fire-roasted peppers, and basil pesto on focaccia. It joins Starbucks' current sandwich line-up, which includes the Roasted Tomato & Mozzarella, Chicken Santa Fe, and Ham & Swiss.

The new Old-Fashioned Grilled Cheese features melted aged white cheddar, yellow cheddar, and mozzarella cheese on multigrain bread. (After this fiasco, I'm a bit dubious of trying Starbucks' take on grilled cheese)

The suggested price for the Turkey Pesto Panini is $5.95, while the suggested price for the Old-Fashioned Grilled Cheese is $5.25.
