If you’ve never been to Panera Bread before, all you need to know is that the place makes bread. They even sell soup in a bread bowl, which is the best thing in the world. There’s no way to make food taste better than to put food inside of other food.
But if you think Panera Bread is all about freshness, at least in terms of their soups, we’re sorry to break the news to you. According to a former Panera Bread employee, all that soup that goes into their bread bowls comes frozen. They still taste good, though, which is really all that matters.
