Last week, Starbucks announced the addition of these new Sous Vide Egg Bites. The breakfast is made using the sous vide method where foods are vacuum-sealed and immersed into tempered water for premium cooking results.
Today, Starbucks officially released the new item nationwide. I happened to pass the spot next to the office walking in and decided to pop in to see if there were any left. Patrons can order between two different flavored egg bites: Bacon & Gruyere or Egg White with Roasted Red Pepper.
A serving of two goes for $4.45 where you can double up on flavors or mix and match.
Grabbing one of each, I headed back to the office to eagerly try the new eggy menu items. Not gonna lie, I definitely had some trouble containing my egg-citement.
I told myself to be cautious, however. Starbucks' Chorizo Breakfast Sandwich left Latin Lothario and fellow Foodbeast writer Isai Rocha pretty disappointed. Still, boasting perfectly cooked eggs definitely caught my attention.
Visually, the bites looked stunning and they smelled heavenly. It all came down to the taste test.
I think they nailed it. The texture was exactly like they boasted, a velvety egg that packs in flavor with every bite. Both egg bites were definitely worth a second try.
Not a bad way to start off the new year, Starbucks. Hopefully your next few breakfast items will be just as egg-celent as this one.
