Ever since Starbucks announced its new meal deal options, I've been totally pumped about trying one of their breakfast sandwiches. I even went to the Starbucks website to check out all the new options that were being offered in an attempt to compete with Dunkin Donuts and McDonalds. By the way, I love McDonald's coffee, and a small cup costs less than a dollar!
Back to Starbucks. The food sounds great! For $3.95 you get a tall coffee of your choice and your choice of one of the following sandwiches: Artisan Bacon Sandwich, Artisan Ham Sandwich, Reduced Fat Turkey Bacon Sandwich or Sausage Sandwich. And they look tasty too.
So, when I went to the Starbucks downtown and asked if they had the new breakfast sandwiches yet (which were supposed to hit stores on Monday) and they told me no, I was very disappointed. Still, I ordered my coffee and grabbed some breakfast before eagerly asking "When are you all going to be offering the breakfast sandwiches?" Do my great disappointment the barrista sheepishly replied, "We aren't getting them at this store." I think I looked like I was going to cry. I was soooo excited about this. So, screw the downtown Starbucks. I'll just have to find a different place.
