Starbucks Expands Menu with New Soda Line

Joe Raedle/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- It's been a long time since Starbucks was just a place to grab coffee.

New menu items like sandwiches and salads have been making it easy for customers to grab a bite along with their caffeine fix for years, and the chain even offers wine and beer at some stores. Most recently, Starbucks introduced a line of hand-crafted sodas. There are also CDs, Starbucks merchandise and coffee beans so you can brew the brand at home.

It's no wonder people feel like they could spend an entire day at Starbucks. One woman, who calls herself Beautiful Existence, nearly did last year, when she ate every single meal for 365 days at the chain as part of her "Starbucks Challenge."

She said the company's new menu items, like the Fizzio sodas, just make the brand more "convenient."

"I think it's great that they're expanding!" she told ABC News Wednesday. "It would definitely help anyone who wants to do my challenge!"

Well, if you do, here's a sample meal plan to get you started -- and proof that you really can eat every meal at Starbucks:


  • Grande Coffee
  • Banana Nut Bread


  • Fizzio Golden Ginger Ale
  • Chicken & Hummus Bistro Box


  • Strawberry Smoothie
  • Tomato & Cheese Savory Square


  • Chardonnay or Local Beer
  • Old-Fashioned Grilled Cheese
