Soup du Jour
"Excuse me...Flo??? snickering What's the Soup Du Jour?" Flatly..."It's the soup of the day." "MMMM, that sounds good...I'll have that."
Today is a soup day...cold, rainy, dreary...SOUPY! I hit Panera for their chicken noodle. In line, I remembered they changed their recipe but the sign boasted that a cup had only 90 calories. Bonus!
If you recall, the CxN was really very delicious before - hearty, ethnic style noodles, with a rich and filling broth.
Panera - why on earth did you change it?
The new style of soup is like broth out of a can - aka clear with flecks of who knows what, the noodles are no where near the old style quality, the chicken is still real chicken (how novel), but it is just a big fat disappointment. Little to no flavor. At least I only wasted 90 calories on it.
