Panera marries two fan-favorite dishes – Broccoli Cheddar Soup and Mac & Cheese – for the national debut of new Broccoli Cheddar Mac & Cheese.
Broccoli Cheddar Mac & Cheese is a new recipe developed by combining two distinct cheddar cheese sauces into a singular velvety blend, simmered with seasoned broccoli florets and julienned carrots.
The new mashup can be found in Panera bakery-cafes nationwide, starting at $5.79 or as part of a You Pick 2 order. It can also be found in the refrigerated deli section at select grocery retailers nationwide as the newest addition to Panera’s line of cafe-inspired grocery products.
To celebrate the launch of the brand’s first-ever cafe mashup of two iconic dishes, Panera and two-time Grammy Award winner Michael Bolton teamed up for the release of a new digital short: “When Some Mac Loves Broccoli Cheddar.” The digital short also introduces Panera’s newest team member, Chef Claes – the man behind the new creation.
