I tried the substitute "Green Goddess" salad when you discontinued the Chicken Cobb with Avocado salad. I hated the dressing. The greens were too bitter. I missed the Romaine lettuce.
I will never return to Panera unless you bring back the Chicken Cobb with Avocado Salad. It was perfect for me, it was low glycemic, definitely had no yeast extract in it to give me a headache. And they left even out the cheese on request which I'm allergic to.
Well, I'll be making my Chicken Cobb with Avocado salads at home from now on.
Frankly, I won't be returning to Panera. And I used to go to Panera restaurants all over the country. I searched for them with my navigator. What would be the point now, to be tempted by bread and cakes and not have the healthy salad I wanted instead?
Nice job getting rid of the one thing I could eat.
Goodbye, Panera. It's just a shame. Very bad decision to eliminate such an anchoring item. Remember when Coke eliminated classic, and had to bring it back because everyone changed to Pepsi? Well, this is your Coke. Change isn't always a good thing.
