In a press conference in 2017, Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson revealed that Starbucks was planning to increase its profits by developing more plant-based options thanks so high demand for these options for customers. And the company seems to be sticking to their plans as they announce the launch of two new vegan options.

The new Macadamia Oat Cookie and Sprouted Grain Bagel are the newest additions to the company’s list of plant-based snacks and juices. They are priced at less than $3.00 CAD and join a growing range of Starbucks products suitable for vegans.

Other plant-based Starbucks products (available at most Canadian locations) include dairy-free milks, vegan crisps, juices, salads and an accidentally vegan avocado spread.

Speaking of the new products back in March, Starbucks COO Rosalind Brewer said: ‘We know our customers ask us [for plant-based food] repeatedly and we’ll be responding.’

The cookie, which is great with a cup of tea, includes oatmeal, macadamia nuts, almond and coconut, and is topped with dried cranberries. The bagel, made from wheat and rye dough, is topped with flax, oats and sunflower seeds. It joins a collection of certified vegan bagels like the plain, blueberry and raisin bagels.
