National Croissant Day takes place Wednesday, January 30. Panera Bread is getting ahead of the day with its revamped collection of croissants.
The star of the new collection is the Almond Croissant. It’s a freshly baked, traditional butter croissant filled with cream, topped with sliced almonds, and dusted with powdered sugar. It’s described as being similar to a Bear Claw pastry.
Also part of the collection are the traditional Croissant and the Chocolate Croissant, which is made with a chocolate-flavored cheese filling and is topped with a chocolate drizzle and powdered sugar.
Those aren’t the only new pastries on Panera’s menu. The Cheese Brittany is flaky butter pastry named for the Brittany region in France where it originates. It is stuffed and topped with cream cheese filling. The Cherry Cheese Brittany is stuffed with cream cheese filling and topped with cherry filling.
Other new additions to the bakery case are the Cinnamon Crunch Scone, Blueberry Scone, Vanilla Cinnamon Roll, Cocoa & Creme Cookie, Coconut Macaroon, and Brownie.
