Starbucks hot apple crisp macchiato

Image
In a previous post I reviewed the iced apple crisp. Today is a strange weather day it’s sunny and raining at the same time. Cold from the wind and hot from the sun at the same time. It seemed to be a perfect day to try a fall drink released in summer.  I also had stars that were going to expire soon. I would normally order a tall since I was using the stars I got a grande. The only customization I did was request coconut milk. I know it’s not the best for this kind of drink it’s the one I like the most. Otherwise I wanted to try it the way it came.  Previously I had gone shopping with my mom and then decided to walk home. I had a heavy bag of flour to carry on the 1.5 km home. I was hoping that I could sit outside at Starbucks. All the outside tables were taken and inside was efficient with them having a person opening and closing the door and telling you to go pick up your mobile order if it’s there. I’m not comfortable sitting inside anyways but it was definitely an atmosphere of gra

Beyond Meat Nuggets at A&W Canada

I remember a couple years ago when I tried the vegan nuggets at A&W Canada.They were good but I preferred the beyond burger. I thought they would be around for awhile but then they were gone. I never had a chance to try the KFC vegan popcorn chick’n before they were gone. I went to A&W the first day the Beyond Meat nuggets came out all the advertising advises they are only here for a limited time. I wanted to ensure I tried them before they get sold out. I have seen reviews of people that like them but some of their posts are sponsored. None of my posts are sponsored just my real opinion. 

I have been vegetarian for over 30 years I don’t remember liking chicken nuggets when I ate meat. I do like the Gardein brand vegan strips but they aren’t sold at fast food restaurants. I still prefer a vegan burger over nuggets any day. 

The nuggets come in a 4 piece kids size, 6 pieces, 10 pieces. I don’t remember the exact prices around $6 for both the kids and 6 piece and $9 for the 10 pieces. I got a 6 piece and asked for BBQ and Sweet and sour sauce they are the vegan sauces available. 

The nuggets were freshly fried I had to wait a couple minutes. I didn’t check the bag for sauces  before I walked the 25 minutes home. I could smell the nuggets while walking home they smelled good. Usually when I go home I reheat fries in my air-fryer I was prepared to reheat the nuggets  but they were still hot. 

I was disappointed when I checked the bag at home and there were no sauces and I didn’t have anything at home to compensate. At least they gave me three packs of ketchup. I tried one nugget plain it wasn’t that great to me. The inside was nice and moist but the breading was dry. Then I tried it with ketchup it was much better. I’m sure I would have been a lot better if I had the actual sauce with it. 

I personally thought the Beyond meat chick’n nuggets were okay I’m glad I got to try them but I won’t go out of my way to buy them in the future. If they make a burger with vegan mayo out of them then I would try that. 

As always I’m also happy when the chain restaurants are successful launching a new vegan product. I am sure other restaurants will be serving these in the future and they will be very popular. I will be happily eating the beyond burger though

  1. How do they compare to the vegan nuggets A&W had the last time? Better or the same?

    1. Probably better without trying them with sauce it is not a fair comparison
