Panera Bread Mac & Cheese
Love, love, love! I get so much for the cost and it always tastes delicious and hot. It's pretty much my Panera staple. Plus, with my Panera Rewards, I also get a bonus pastry! This is a popular meeting spot for me and my friends whenever we meet up.
This is so delicious. Cons are it is so not healthy at all. It is really hearty. I crave this at least once every couple of weeks. Very easy to prepare, just nuke in the microwave. I am super satisfied, just wish it was cheaper!!!
In store the Mac and cheese is delicious! I bought some from SAMs club and it tasted funny to me. The flavor was different and it was watery. I think your best bet is to buy it from the actual store if you can.
The mac and cheese is my personal favorite from Panera, they have just enough creamy cheese and they never over cook my noodles. I get this every time I go to Panera
Panera's Mac and cheese is ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! It is both creamy and thick. Tastes homemade, with real cheese! Perfect for any side side or as the main dish!
I love this Mac & cheese sooo much. It's so creamy and delicious. It's one of the only reasons I go to Panera. Not healthy but good for an indulgence
This shiz is so good! It's melty goodness that is super filling too! It's creamy and gooey and delicious and everyone should eat some.
Amazingggggg! I order it every time! It's so creamy and delicious. The noodles and perfect too, it holds all the creamy cheesiness!
My go to guilty pleasure, especially during the fall! Nothing beats crusty bread and warm mac ! The rich taste is amazing!
This mac & cheese is so good. The cheese to noodle ratio is perfect. However the price is unreasonably expensive.
