The Starbucks.com homepage includes the news of three additions to the coffee chain's selection of breakfast sandwiches. The three new sandwiches are the Slow Roasted Ham & Swiss, the Vegetable and Fontiago, and the Egg & Cheddar. They all look delicious ... but, then, fast food items always look delicious in the promotional photos, don't they?
Vegetable & Fontiago Breakfast Sandwich
Nutritional info: 470 calories, 17 grams total fat (9 grams saturated), 910mg sodium, 5 grams fiber, 18 grams of protein.
Slow-Roasted Ham & Swiss Breakfast Sandwich
Nutritional info: 490 calories, 25 grams total fat (12 grams saturated), 830mg sodium, 2 grams fiber and 20 grams of protein.
No, these are not "light" sandwiches; they are heavy on calories, fat and salt. And if you pair one with a flavored coffee drink, watch out for your waistline. But if you love Starbucks, you already know that.
Egg & Cheddar Breakfast Sandwich
It's also the lowest-calorie option among the three new 'wiches. Nutritional info: 400 calories, 17 grams total fat (7 grams saturated), 730mg sodium, 4 grams figer, 15 grams protein.
