15 Popular Restaurant-Branded Foods You Can Buy at the Supermarket
If quarantine has you missing your favorite restaurants, you're not alone. The experience of sitting down with friends or family and having someone else bring you a perfectly cooked dish (and do the dishes for you!) is a thing of the past, thanks to the spread of the coronavirus. But if you want to bring a little bit of your favorite chain restaurant into your meals at home, you can still do so with these restaurant-branded foods.
Whether you're missing the comfort of Panera's soups or the zesty seasonings of a Taco Bell burrito, you're in luck. Get your shopping list ready—these treats are serious must-buys.
Panera Broccoli Cheddar Soup
No, it's not served in a bread bowl if you buy it at the store. But if you're missing these hot bowls of goodness, you can easily make them at home! Target sells Panera's broccoli cheddar and chicken tortilla soups, as well as mac and cheese and salad dressings.
