Panera New England Clam Chowder
Seriously! What more needs to be said. It's cold outside and there is nothing better than sipping coffee and eating clam chowder. Panera happens to have a pretty good one! I would not be surprised if it was Campels or Progresso just dressed up in a bread bowl. What ever! The flavor is still AWESOME! It's thick and by far one of the WORST soups for you ( calorie wise) on the menu. It would be only slightly better if you did NOT have it in a bread bowl. ( That is from a diet and exercise perspective. If you don't care about such things.....BREAD BOWL IT UP!) Cheryl and I come here so often that we usually get a free soup every other week or so. And when we do, we splurge on the Friday Clam Chowder. We ARE trying to watch our waist line, so we share it with an extra baguette ( for dipping) And no bread bowl....I think the better value is without the bread bowl because you get more soup. Just my opinion. Anyway, Enjoy the cold weather! Its the BEST for Hot Chocolate, Hot Apple Cider, Coffee, and New England Clam Chowder.....Stay Warm!
