Panera Bread's vast menu of soups, salads, sandwiches, pastries, and bowls should appeal to the majority of people.
However, the chain's newest sandwiches seem to be aimed towards big eaters and flavor enthusiasts.
Stacked Toasted Baguette Sandwiches with Meat, Cheese, Toppings, and Sauces were launched by Panera.
Three huge sandwiches are available: the Chicken & Pepperoni Mozzarella Melt, the Chicken Green Goddess Caprese Melt, and the Chicken Cordon Bleu Melt.
Despite their distinct flavors, Panera's toasted French baguettes and antibiotic-free smoked, pulled chicken are comparable to all of the sandwiches.
Plucked chicken, thick-sliced pepperoni, fresh mozzarella, tomato bell pepper sauce, and shredded Fontina and mozzarella cheeses make up the new Chicken & Pepperoni Mozzarella Melt.
The Chicken Green Goddess Caprese Melt is made up of pulled chicken, tomatoes, mozzarella, parmesan, Peppadew peppers, basil, arugula, Green Goddess dressing, and garlic aioli.
The Chicken Cordon Bleu Melt, on the other hand, has pulled chicken, Black Forest Ham, smoked gouda, arugula, and country mustard.
The three new sandwiches complement Panera's Toasted Baguette line, which debuted in January. Panera's debut of sandwiches on French baguettes was a watershed moment for the company.
Toasted Baguettes used to only sell Green Goddess Caprese, Pepperoni Mozzarella, and Smoky Buffalo Chicken. In June, Panera released a Black Forest Ham & Gouda Melt.
Three new Stacked Toasted Baguettes are $13.59 at my local Panera in New Jersey, and four others are $11.19. Prices are affected by location.
Panera's best-selling soup, Broccoli Cheddar, the Cinnamon Crunch Bagel, the Toasted Frontega Chicken Sandwich, and two Caesar salads are all on the menu.
