Starbucks Egg White, Spinach & Feta Wrap Review

Starbucks Spinach and Feta Egg WrapThe Starbucks Spinach, Roasted Tomato, Feta & Egg Wrap is currently the lowest calorie option listed under their breakfast menu, so I decided to try it out. But instead of breakfast, I had it for lunch one day when I was while I was there working. This sandwich is made with a whole wheat wrap stuffed with an egg white patty, spinach and feta cheese (just as the name implies).

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 wrap
Calories: 280
Total Fat: 9 grams, 14%
Saturated Fat: 3.5 grams, 18%
Sodium: 1140 mg, 48%
Protein: 19 grams
Carbohydrates: 35 grams
Fiber: 8 grams, 32%
Sugar: 4 grams
Price: $3.25

I don't usually buy egg sandwiches, but this proved to be very well engineered. There was nothing oozing or running out of the wrap, the texture was firm and moist, and some kind of sauce (or maybe it was the feta), provided a flavorful kick. And, the sandwich is quite satisfying enough for an albeit small lunch.

But, as with most food options at these types of places, the nutrition facts weren't the greatest. Each sandwich only has 280 calories, 32% of the daily value for fiber and 19 grams of protein, but also 18% of the DV for saturated fat and 48% of the DV for sodium.

The ingredients list is also something straight out of a food chemistry textbook - I did mention that this was "well engineered."

Overall, I would probably grab this on a hectic day when I'm running around, instead of picking up a fast food burger.
