I Tried Jamba Juice’s New Plant-Based Impossible Handwich
Jamba Juice just added its very first plant-based sandwich to its permanent breakfast menu! Starting April 12, customers can pick up a plant-based Impossible Handwich at Jamba’s over 700 locations nationwide. The bite-size sandwich is made with an Impossible sausage patty on a toasted sprouted-grain bun—just be sure to order it without cheese to make it vegan!
Danielle Fisher, Jamba’s vice president of marketing, stated:
At Jamba we pride ourselves in offering our guests a wide selection of menu items that meet all lifestyles. We look forward to seeing the response to our Impossible Handwich and will use that to fuel our future innovation.
The second (literally) that I heard the news, I hopped in my car and drove three miles to the nearest Jamba to give the Impossible Handwich a try. When I got to the store, I saw signs on the door and at the register advertising the new item. I ordered it without cheese, and it was ready in less than five minutes.
The first thing I noticed about the sandwich was how small it is! That must be why they call it a “handwich.” It’s really more of a fun snack, so I would recommend getting two (or even three!) if you’re hungry. While it may not be the most photogenic of sandwiches, the Impossible Handwich is super tasty. The patty is meaty and flavorful, and the seasoned bun melts in your mouth. I will definitely get another at my next Jamba visit!
Plant-based breakfast sandwiches have been on a roll lately! Just last month, coffee chain Peet’s Coffee released its Everything Plant-Based Sandwich—a fully vegan breakfast sandwich. Available at participating locations nationwide, the sandwich features a Beyond Meat breakfast sausage patty, JUST Egg, and dairy-free cheese. I am pretty much addicted to these sandwiches and have started picking up at least one most weekends.
The same month, Philz Coffee debuted its Plant Powered Sandwich, which boasts JUST Egg, a Beyond Meat sausage patty, and Daiya vegan cheese on an English muffin. This tasty option is now available at all Philz Coffee locations.
Even Starbucks is getting in on the action! While its Impossible Breakfast Sandwich—which is premade with eggs and cheese—cannot be made vegan, the coffee giant has been testing its Plant Powered Breakfast Sandwich at select locations in Washington and Texas. This exciting sandwich has Impossible sausage, a plant-based egg, and dairy-free cheese.
