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!) won't be the same anytime soon, thanks to the spread of the coronavirus. (And if you thought you'd be able to go out to eat in a reopened state, you might not be able to—after reopened states saw rises in confirmed COVID-19 cases, bars in Texas and Florida have already been shut down again.) 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. And for more ideas, here are 20 Healthy Foods to Add To Your Coronavirus Grocery List.
