Starbucks Bistro Boxes

September 1, 2011

Everyone knows about Starbucks and their amazing selection of drinks.  My favorite is the Venti Non-Fat Caramel Macchiato.  Sometimes I get it iced, and others, just plain.

Recently, Starbucks has been making an upgrade in their line of Other Items to be purchased at the counter.  They not only offer breads, muffins, and cake pops – but they now offer Bistro Boxes!

A Bistro Box contains the essential ingredients for a great meal.  Healthy and fresh, these meals are fabulous.

I was given the opportunity to sample a Bistro Box, and blog about it!

So while we were out the other day, we drove by the local Starbucks and grabbed a bistro box and a drink!

The lady behind the counter looked at me like I was just a tiny bit crazy as I was photographing her Bistro Boxes.

They had a few varieties to choose from.

I was very temped to try their protein box, because it was more of a snack time than dinner time for us..

But then I saw the Chipotle Chicken Wraps – and those just sounded WAY too good for me not to get.

Got my drink and my bistro box, and headed back to the car.

Mmmm.. This was a great treat for my tastebuds – the perfect blend of chicken, salsa, lettuce, cheese, and spiceyness.  I loved the avacado in this salsa.  We had three wraps.

Also those containers were so nice – I kept them so I can reuse them at a later date.  They’re the perfect small size container that we never seem to have on hand.

I assumed that this was a small side-salad – so I saved it for the end.  However, I found that it didn’t really have a great flavor all alone.  It didn’t taste bad or anything, it just would have tasted AWESOME in my wraps.  Next Time!

Best part of the meal?  When I was all finished, I found a little Dark Chocolate bar Smile  I didn’t share this.

You should head over to your local Starbucks and try out your own Bistro Box – I found a coupon on the Starbucks website (after the fact) so I’ll be going back there to get another one soon!

 

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Starbucks Bistro Boxes and received a gift card to facilitate my review and thank me for taking the time to participate.

Comments

  1. When I buy wraps from other places I have to remind myself to eat them right away, otherwise they’ll get soggy and unappetizing. Thanks for pointing out that their chicken wraps were “separated so nicely”. I can take my time eating this. Great!

  2. Just curious- how much was the bistro box?? Man it looks so good!

    • I belive it was around $5-$6

      I also found a coupon at starbucks.com for $1 off though!! I’d give you the link, but I’m out of town for the weekend and we have terrible internet access!!

      Super Good Though!

      • I lied. This particular box was $6.95, and some were as low as $4.95 – depending on which box you get.
        I imagine this was one of the more spendy ones, being that it was a whole meal.

  3. These sound so good! Yum!

  4. Thanks for the pic’s ! Great review ! I guess now I will have to give them a try. I had heard about it, but have not been to Starbuck’s in awhile !

    Thanks again !

  5. I like the “Under Construction – One Size” diaper.
