25 Insanely Delicious Ways to Use Your PersonalPoints at Panera Bread

Find out how all your faves (including that creamy broccoli cheddar soup) fit into your Budget.

Everyone knows that the best part about running errands is refueling at Panera Bread. (Oh, and if you don't dream of their soup bread bowls and Asian sesame chicken salad? You're missing out!)

While said bread bowl, to name one menu item, can make quite a dent in your daily PersonalPoints™, it can easily fit into your Budget with a little bit of planning—with WW, nothing is off the menu! Say you eat a low-PersonalPoints breakfast and then snack on tasty ZeroPoint™ and low-PersonalPoints snacks—like fresh fruit and veggies, hard-boiled eggs, and non-fat yogurt—between meals. That frees up your daily PersonalPoints so you can spend them however you'd like when you visit Panera Bread.

With meal options that fit into every Budget, it’s easy to see why the bakery-café is one of the top restaurants for WW members. Discover the PersonalPoints value of some of your favorite eats with this handy guide:
