Starbucks Portobello Mushroom Piadini Review

Starbucks Padini Portobello Mushroom Piadini

Starbucks debuted it's new star-shaped breakfast Piadini today. There are 2 varieties, the sausage, egg and cheese and the Portobella Mushroom Piadini, which is the one that I tried. The pre-prepared star shaped Piadini crust is filled with chunks of roasted portobella mushrooms, chopped spinach, a blend of feta and ricotta cheeses, and eggs. Although the star shape was unique and attractive, the black mushrooms peeking out suggested that this might not be something I would enjoy. When I bit into the sandwich, I really couldn't distinguish between the textures of the mushrooms and spinach, but it was ... okay. It wasn't messy or goopy since it was flat and nothing oozed out. The cheese was evident, both in taste and in the odor of the feta, but it still seemed to need more flavor - something that would contrast and stand out.

Overall I would say that I wouldn't ever find myself feenin' for this, but it was okay ... when it was hot. Once it cooled down, it was spongy and I couldn't eat it anymore.

A Piadini costs $3.25 and each one has 370 calories, 18 grams of total fat which is 27% of the daily value, 45% of the DV for saturated fat (9 grams), no trans fat, 50% of the RDA for cholesterol (150 mg), 650 mg sodium (28% of the RDA), 14 grams of protein and 39 grams of carbohydrates which includes only 2 grams of fiber and 4 grams of sugar.

There is way too much saturated fat and cholesterol in this for a breakfast sandwich. A Dunkin Donuts Egg White Flatbread Sandwich has 280-290 calories, less than half the saturated fat and more protein (read our review). If you must eat one of these sandwhiches, I would go with Dunkin D.
