My tossed salad
I loved the zesty marinara dressing and the quinoa. Quinoa is delicious and it's a filling grain. The chicken was a little harder to pick out from this salad (but I found out that all the tiny chicken pieces fell to the bottom of the salad when I was tossing it). The salad is on the tinier side (the bigger box is deceiving), but it can fill you up for a while and it's probably the best freebie you can get at Starbucks!
When I was purchasing this, a few things crossed my mind:
1) They're not so good at the savoury items...maybe their pastries will be better
2) What's the biggest pastry I can get so I can fill up faster?
3) Why is there so much sugar on this? (is this Diabetes waiting to happen?)
It's basically a bun with lots of sugar and cinnamon - the Starbucks version of a cinnamon bun without the icing and without those doughy layers or a honey bun with cinnamon added in (since it was kinda fried). Super sweet - as I expected I guess.

Breakfast sandwich with double smoked bacon, cheddar and egg
I like the croissant bun, but again - a lot more bread than actual bacon, cheddar and egg. The proportions are all wrong. I had the ham, egg and Swiss cheese breakfast sandwich on another day and I liked that one a lot better.
Starbucks has been offering food for a while now, but I just haven't really gotten around to trying it even though I've reached Gold Star status for a while now.
I decided to use my next freebie to check out the BBQ Brisket Sandwich:
Unfortunately, the sandwich turned out a little sad...there was some beef brisket, but it was more bread than anything else. I would definitely not pay $7 for this.
