We all know that Starbucks is one of the most popular corporate chains in America. Everyone and their cousin has a favorite go-to caffeinated beverage. However, while Starbucks is definitely known for their drinks, their food is also pretty legendary. Here is my definitive list of all the best treats at Starbucks, so you can have your (coffee) cake and eat it, too. (By the way, I'm not sponsored by Starbucks, but if they offered, I would happily oblige)
10. The Bacon, Gouda & Egg Sandwich
The best sandwich Starbucks has to offer by far. The bacon is always crispy, the egg is always fluffy and the gouda finishes it off perfectly. Also, the bread used is so delicious and thick and everything bread should be. This sandwich is a 10/10.
9. Double-Smoked Bacon Cheddar & Egg Sandwich
Another amazing Starbucks sandwich of a similar merit. However, the crust for this sandwich is a CROISSANT. That’s right. In addition to delicious bacon, cheese, and egg, there is also the perfect hug from a crispy sweet croissant.
8. Dark Chocolate and Caramelized Banana Oatmeal
All of the Starbucks oatmeals are delicious and not even close to bland old people oatmeal. These little warm bowls of sweet oats come with all the toppings so you can choose what to add and what to leave out. The Dark Chocolate Caramelized Banana oatmeal is so delicious, however, that you definitely won’t even consider getting rid of any part of it.
All of Starbucks’ bagels are fan-freakin-tastic. You simply cannot go wrong when deciding between plain or everything or multigrain. Also, finish it off with some of the cream cheese and you’re good to go.
6. Butter Croissant/ Chocolate Croissant
Just like with the bagels, Starbucks’ croissants are phenomenal. Warmed up or not, these flaky, buttery, delicious masterpieces are a taste explosion in your mouth. I honestly have traveled to Starbucks on multiple occasions just to eat a croissant.
5. Cake Pops
What is an article about the food of Starbucks without a reference to their cake pops? Of course, they are delicious no matter the flavor. However, they definitely could be bigger. Or they could just be full cakes. Maybe that’s to come? I sure hope so.
4. Michigan Cherry Oat Bar
After trying this I was shocked there wasn’t some angelic old lady baking in the back. This bar tastes like something your grandma would make. It’s got fruit so you can pretend it’s good for you, plus, it’s got oats and a delicious brown sugar crust. So healthy...but not.
3. Iced Lemon Pound Cake
Hands-down one of my favorite treats- this loaf of soft, tangy bread is a necessity. I can’t remember my life without it and I honestly don’t want to. If you have yet to try one of these, do yourself a favor and order one ASAP. The light bread mixed with a heavier icing finish combine for a taste explosion.
2. Marshmallow Dream Bar
For all my gluten-free homies out there and really just any fan of a Rice Krispie treat. Somehow, Starbucks does it better. The marshmallow is so
1. Apple Fritter
Arguabley the greatest Starbucks treat and maybe just best baked good ever. You wouldn’t expect it, but once this baby is heated up, it becomes the most magically delicious warm apple delight. Also, it’s about the size of your head, so the yumminess goes on and on.
