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).
I don’t think I’ve heard news this devastating since McDonald’s stopped making the McDLT back in the 80s, but it’s true. Sweethearts, the original text message of the candy world, will not be making a return this year for Valentine’s Day. Now my only question is how will people know you love them if you don’t hand them out a chalky-tasting colored heart that reads: Wanna Do it?
