If you have been lucky enough to spot a Starbucks Too Good To Go bag on the app you might be wondering what sort of food you can find inside the magic bag. As usual with Too Good To Go, the contents of your Starbucks magic bag will depend on what is left over at the end of the day, but here’s what we got recently.
WHAT IS TOO GOOD TO GO?
Food waste is a massive problem in the UK. Not only is there a lot of food waste from farm to table, but there are also extra resources that go to waste, like water and labour. Did you know that 8% of the global greenhouse gas emissions come from wasted food?
Too Good To Go have teamed up with restaurants, stores and supermarkets so that perfectly edible food isn’t just thrown out at the end of the day. A restaurant or supermarket can let Too Good To Go know how many Magic Bags they have available, and then you can purchase one for a big discount.
You won’t know what you will get until you collect it but it could be anything from bakery items to fruit and vegetables. There are even world buffet restaurants using the app, so there is a lot of choice.
Since you can’t control what you get in your Magic Bag, it won’t be suitable for all dietary needs.
IS THE FOOD STILL GOOD TO EAT?
We all know that some sell-by dates are rubbish – an apple or potato doesn’t know to go off at the stroke of midnight on the date on the packet. They can sometimes last days and weeks after the date on the packet.
You won’t be receiving moludy or gross food at all – and if you do then you can contact Too Good To Go’s customer service to report this.
How much is a Starbucks Too Good To Go Magic Bag?
