Drinks @ Panera Bread

7 posts in this topic

I work remotely and often hunker down on Starbucks and Panera Bread to do work.

On Whole30, this means a LOT of black iced coffee, which makes me jittery after a while. I did some research and good news - the Panera Bread Plum Ginger Hibiscus Tea is complaint!

Detailed Ingredients

Plum Ginger Hibiscus Tea (Nigerian Hibiscus, Apple Pieces, Sweet Blackberry Leaves, Rosehips, Natural Plum Flavor, Carob, Ginger).

See at: https://www.panerabread.com/en-us/menu-categories/drinks.html#plum-ginger-hibiscus-tea

I thought this was pretty cool considering a lot of Starbucks iced teas are not compliant. Unfortunately I can't find the other iced tea from Panera on the nutrition page (I think it was a Green Tea, but it definitely said unsweetened on the fountain dispenser at Panera, and online I only see reference to a sweetened iced green tea).

It's just nice to know I can drink something there other than coffee. And water.

I just visited Panera today, and I was thrilled to find this option! I agree, that it's nice to have something other than coffee and water. :)

@MavMeg I haven't tried the Plum Ginger Hibiscus tea before, but ingredients that state "natural" flavor is kind of a grey area. Does it come unsweetened?

Natural flavor is not a gray area.  Natural flavors are okay for the Whole30 and cannot, by law, contain soy, sugar or other allergens.

I have a question about this, as well. I have a Celestial Honey Vanilla Chamomile tea. It is "caffeine free herbal tea".  Ingredients state that is has "natural honey flavor with other natural flavors". Is this compliant or not?

i answered this on your other thread.  Per forum rules, please do not cross post the same question in multiple threads, it makes more work for the mods and makes the forum messy.  Thanks.
