Panera Bread mashes up two classic fan-favorites with the introduction of the new Broccoli Cheddar Mac & Cheese.
This is the first time that the cafe is mashing up two iconic menu items and it stands to become a hit with customers.
Panera simply decided to take their best-selling Mac & Cheese and mix it with their signature Broccoli Cheddar Soup to create a creamy blend of cheese enveloping tender shells, broccoli florets and shredded carrots.
“I’m obsessed with the flavor combination in our new broccoli cheddar mac and cheese,” Panera head chef Claes Petersson said in a written statement, calling the dish “insanely craveable and irresistible.”
The dish is available at Panera locations starting at $5.79 or as part of a “You Pick 2” selection.
Panera said it would also make its broccoli cheddar mac and cheese available in grocery store refrigerated deli sections across the country.
To celebrate and advertise the new menu item, Panera even hired Grammy-winning singer Michael Bolton to perform a rendition of his hit song “When a Man Loves a Woman” rethemed as “When Some Mac Loves Broccoli Cheddar.”
