Yes, that’s right! Somebody’s gonna win $100 worth of Panera to enjoy this summer! This giveaway was so popular last year we just had to bring it back.

One hundred smackeroos will equal some awesome soups, bagels, sweets — and  maybe even a few Green Goddess Cobb salads with house-made dressing (like the one pictured above). Panera just added that one to its summer salad family. LOOKS GOOD.
