Farmer Boys announces the return of bread bowls at all Farmer Boys locations. For a limited time, guests can choose from the New Broccoli Cheese soup, Clam Chowder, or made-from-scratch chili.

"We are excited to bring back this guest favorite for the seventh year. Bread bowls capture our brand essence by providing a delectable and hearty product made using the highest quality ingredients," said Kristy Foster, Farmer Boys' director of R&D and Purchasing.  

Farmer Boys bread bowls are made with La Brea Bakery half-pound country white sourdough rounds – free of additives and preservatives. The mildly tart sourdough 'bowls' pair perfectly with Farmer Boys' Boston Clam Chowder, the new Broccoli Cheddar soup and famous meaty chili. The Farmer Boys recipe for chili has not changed since the first restaurant opened in 1981 and contains a proprietary blend of spices and 100% pure chunky beef.

Originally introduced in 2008, these seasonal favorites have returned annually due to customer demand. This year, after receiving various requests, the company added a rich cheddar and parmesan broccoli soup.

"At Farmer Boys we work hard to make our guests feel at home with fresh food cooked to order in a welcoming and friendly environment, "says Karen Eadon, Farmer Boys' chief marketing officer. "This season is no exception. We'll serve up a warm and delicious bread bowl for anyone looking for a respite from their busy day. The bread bowls will be available at all Farmer Boys locations through early March. Enjoy them while they are here."
