How to Get Panera's New Toasted Baguette Sandwiches for Free This Winter

The eatery has a new release to warm you up this season.

Free baguette? Oui oui!

Panera Bread has a selection of new offerings that are sure to warm your cold days this season, and even better, you may even be able to snag some for free!

Launching nationwide on Jan. 12, three new Toasted Baguette sandwiches will hit the menu of the bakery-cafes, with options every bread-lover is sure to enjoy.

The three new handcrafted selections mark the first time the eatery has created a sandwich on its signature French baguette.

The large, packed-with-flavor food items are freshly prepared with clean ingredients in three bold and fresh recipes, including:

Green Goddess Caprese Melt: Peppadew™ peppers, fresh mozzarella, grated parmesan, basil, arugula, green goddess dressing, garlic aioli and salt & pepper on Panera’s signature baguette.

Pepperoni Mozzarella Melt: Pepperoni, fresh mozzarella, fontina/mozzarella blend and market sauce on Panera’s signature baguette.

Smoky Buffalo Chicken Melt: Smoked chicken, American cheese, fresh red onions and Buffalo sauce on Panera’s signature baguette.

“At Panera, our chefs and bakers know that our iconic Panera baguette is beloved by our guests as a side to our many soups, salads and entrees – so, what better way to deliver a new craveable innovation than by using it for a sandwich filled with bold and fresh flavors?” Claes Petersson, Head Chef and Chief Food Innovation Officer at Panera Bread, said in a press release. “Toasting our baguette sandwiches gives the perfect blend of crunchy crust with a pillowy-soft center that makes it easy to take the perfect bite, and we're excited to offer our guest three delicious flavors to enjoy.”

The big bites start at $9.99 each, plus tax. Members of the MyPanera rewards program are eligible for early access first dibs to the newly-dropped menu additions through January 11 via the brand's mobile app.

In celebration of the new release, Panera wants to keep customers extra toasty by giving away Toasted Baguettes sandwiches "on the house" in some of the coldest U.S. cities.

From Jan. 17-22, keep a close eye on the weather forecast! If temperatures hit 32 degrees or below in New York City, Boston, Denver, Washington, DC or Chicago, the company will drop a code for a free Toasted Baguette sandwich on local digital billboards including New York City’s famous Times Square marquee. Plus, in the Windy City, Panera will be making the promo code drop in the actual snow—yes, you read that right, the real cold fluffy white stuff that falls from the sky.
