    I wish they’d do something more interesting with the turkey than just sub it for chicken in an already existing salad. Not to take anything away from the fuji apple salad (it’s one of my favorite items).

    Peach smoothie sounds good. I wish they’d bring back the black cherry.

    seeing as chicken fuji apple salad is my FAVORITE thing, I kinda cant wait to try the turkey one 🙂

    I wish the apples were fresh and not chips – although the dressing sounds divine. Interesting they are calling it “new” when, as Lisa and Erin point out, it is just a derivation of an already existing item.

    Anything peach is great in my book. I can’t wait until we can get them fresh at the farmers market so I can make smoothies here.

    Fuji Apple Salad looks very good. I think that the flavors of turkey and apple are good matched. I will eat no mayo, no dressing, no sauce.

    You will almost never get something that is just plain bad at Panera. Most of the time, it actually ranges between pretty good to really good.

    My problem with Panera is that they never seem to take any chances in terms of their flavors. They’re never going to do anything that’s too far out of the box. That’s why I prefer Cosi over Panera. Cosi will do some interesting things with the flavors they use….sometimes it’s spectacular, and sometimes it’s a spectacular failure, but at least they try some different things.

    Maybe I’m the only one but I find Panera food bland and uninspiring, quite average. Some of their breads are awesome though.
