Yesterday I visited one of Panera's Test Kitchens in the Boston area. The Test Kitchen is located in a former Panera Cafe location.
The seating area of the cafe had been converted into small cubicles with a table, chair, iPad, bottle of water and Saltines (to cleanse the palate, of course). We sat and I was ready to eat! So what did we sample? COOKIES!!! 5 cookies that were so super sweet, sadly I can't tell you more than that since I don't want to violate the agreement that I signed. I only took a bite of each so that I could answer all of their questions! I still wanted my soup, salad or sandwich!!
I finished after about 45 minutes of tasting and answering their questions, I signed out and was rewarded with a $40 Panera gift card so I can go grab my soup, salad or sandwich now!
Are you a fan of Panera?
