The first time I had a taste of Panera Bread was in Saint Louis. (In this state, it's still called its original name, Saint Louis Bread Company).
I was hooked the moment I tasted their tomato soup in a bread bowl. In a span of a month, I had tried almost everything on their menu.
Lucky for me, and for millions of other Panera Bread fans, the company continued to roll out new items, like their recently released four cheese sandwiches.
I'm sure many people can agree that the hardest part about stepping foot in Panera Bread is deciding on what to eat.
Should you order a half sandwich, half soup? Full sandwich, full soup? In a bread bowl? But what if you're craving both the tomato soup and broccoli soup? What do you do now?
You'll have to shell out a lot of money if you order too much, and you don't want to order too little, or else you're going to leave the restaurant feeling unsatisfied.
Decisions, decisions, decisions.
Fans are soon going to have an easier decision to make after the company revealed their latest invention...
The Double Bread Bowl
Panera Bread's delicious loaf of bread now has two holes, designed for ordering two different soups or mac and cheese.
Whether you want to tingle your taste buds with two different flavors or share with a friend, the double bread bowl is the perfect item to order off the menu.
There's no word on how much it will cost, but I would imagine it would cost a little more than a full soup, since it's in a bread bowl.
How You Can Get Yours
From August 5 to August 31, Panera Bread locations in Philadelphia will get to try the double bread bowl.
If the test run in Philly is successful, there's a good chance that it will become an item on their nationwide menu.
I can't imagine it not being popular!
If you live in Philly, you can stop by a Panera Bread location after August 5, or you can order the double bread bowl through delivery.
To get the right order online, add an unsliced sourdough loaf to your cart and then type “make the sourdough a double bread bowl” in the special instructions.
Carb-lovers are going nuts over this news!
