Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Panera Bread has a very special treat for lovers. Lovers of wet bread, and sharing said wet bread with your significant other wet bread lover, to be exact. For the next two weeks, Panera’s offering a Double Bread Bowl, which is a loaf of sourdough bread with two holes drilled into either end, ready for a hot soup injection, for $9.99 ( those dummies should have priced it at $6.99 or $9.69). You can share it with your lover, filling the cavities with your choice of “91 different soup and mac and cheese combinations”, according to Food and Wine. For a more personal touch, I guess you could also fill it up with your own thick and creamy concoction (gentlemen and squirters only).
According to People:
“Since the test launch, we’ve seen an overwhelming response on social media from fans asking, ‘When will Double Bread Bowls come to my city?’ We’re excited to answer that demand and spread the bread to guests nationwide,” said Tom Sadler, Panera’s Vice President of Food & Beverage Product Development. “The Double Bread Bowl encourages our guests to take their favorite soups to the next level and share an unforgettable meal with a friend or loved one.”
Just imagine the laughs you’ll share enjoying a next level soup experience like this! If you’d asked me a month ago if I thought there was any way to improve on the gummy sourdough bread bowls filled with milky clam spunk they sell to tourists over at Fishman’s Wharf, I’d have said you were crazy! But now, Panera’s got me thinking about a whole other world of possibilities. Is this what falling in love feels like?

Apparently the Double Bread Bowl was a big hit over the summer when it was tested in locations in Philadelphia. I don’t know if they came late to my area or what but I have never been to a Panera Bread. But I do know there’s nothing that gets my vagina wet and yeasty like some hot carb-on-carb action.
All this talk of bread and soup makes me want to take a romantic leap and ask my girl Shirley Nash if she’ll be my Valentine.
Shirley, what do you say?
