While all the sandwiches sound good on the menu, I've tried them all and just about every one is ruined by some weird flavored pesto paste or funky mayonnaise. I know you can customize them to remove the offending ingredient but in most cases the taste is so alien I cant determine the source.
Except the Italian Combo, it WAS the only sandwich that tasted 'normal'. Not anymore! Wow did you completely ruin that. I didn't even know it changed I ordered an Italian combo and got this abomination instead.
Right off I noticed that it was super small even for a Pick 2. Literally the Baguette that came with it was bigger than the sandwich. But that was actually good because there was less to throw away. I took a *** and it was just awful.
Crunchy carrots in a sandwich?! I know that's supposed to be giardiniera but every deli sandwich I've ever had with giardiniera it was pickled so, one the carrots aren't crunchy, and 2 the flavor is good. I dont know what you have done with those ingredients but it is disgusting. The first *** was dreadful I immediately knew something was horribly wrong with this sandwich I took a second *** just to make sure.
Realizing I'm stuck at work and this was all i would have to eat for the next several hours I tried hard to choke down another *** but it was just FOUL. As with all the other sandwiches I cant even identify the gross rotten spoiled taste I'm assuming its the 'carrot mix' but then again even after i scraped off all the 'nasty stuff' it still tasted horrible so its probably the foo-foo wine infused salami. I know the leaves that taste like soap you replaced the lettuce with taste like soap which is gross and enough to make me no longer like the sandwich by itself but there were even more evil tastes afoot in this horrid creation. You ruined the only sandwich that wasn't already ruined.
I generally do the lunch run for my office and Panera WAS one of my main go to spots.
Now that there's not a single sandwich on the menu that hasn't been ruined by trying to 'fancy it up' there's no reason I would ever pick Panera again. So you aren't just loosing my business, You just lost and entire office's weekly lunch order.
