Review: Starbucks - Roasted Turkey & Dill Harvarti Sandwich

Starbucks' Roasted Turkey & Dill Harvarti sandwich is part of the Mercato line they've been rolling out and features thin-sliced turkey breast, dill Havarti cheese, arugula, and a lemon aioli on Bavarian multigrain bread.

It costs $7.45 but I received this courtesy of Starbucks.

This sandwich replaces Starbucks' previous Turkey & Harvarti sandwich and notably replaces the lettuce with arugula, changes up the mayo a little, and switches to a heartier bread.

I thought the previous version was pretty solid and considered it one of my favorite sandwiches on the Starbucks menu. It's fortunate then that the Roasted Turkey & Dill Harvarti sandwich isn't much different.

The turkey and cheese seemed the same to me and came in similarly-portioned amounts as before. There was a good balance of meaty and creamy along with the expected savory and herby notes.

The arugula was fairly wilted which left it wanting in terms of texture but contributed a touch of peppery quality.

Lemon aioli seems like a fancy way of saying mayo and it doesn't taste any different here.

As I mentioned before, the bread was fairly hearty. It's not as soft and there's more grains and texture to it. I don't know if it is healthier but it feels healthier. It doesn't make much of a difference to me but if you prefer your sandwiches on super soft sliced bread you might not like the change.

Despite the changes from the previous version of the sandwich, Starbucks Roasted Turkey & Dill Harvarti sandwich still offered mostly the same experience, which is to say, it's a simple but well-put-together sandwich.
