The Cream of Chicken and Wild Rice soup was hearty and filling. It had a nice creamy chicken flavor and had a good balance of rice, chicken, and carrots. None of the three was overpowering. The carrots were nice and tender.
One of my husband's favorite comfort food is tomato soup. The Vegetarian Creamy Tomato soup had a nice robust tomato flavor and went well with the Big Kid Grilled Cheese sandwich. The sweetness of the Applewood-Smoked Bacon in the sandwich contrasted nicely with the robust tomato taste of the soup.
The French onion soup had a rich buttery flavor. It was mildly sweet and while there were a lot of onions in the soup, they did not have an overpowering onion flavor. It tasted especially good in a bread bowl, which by the way, also tasted great. The bread bowl was fluffy and had a pleasantly sour taste. The taste of the sourdough complemented the soup very well.
As a part of the DailyBuzz Food Tastemaker program, I received a gift card and stipend to try Panera Bread Soups. Thoughts and opinions are my own.
