Quiznos and Panera Kids' Meals

Their kids' meal includes a choice of sandwich plus a drink, a 100-calorie pack of baked Cheetos, a cookie and a "surprise" (the boys each got unique, sea-themed memory game). I'd choose this over a crappy meal any day.

Panera only recently added kids meals to their menu, but I don't think it was worth the wait. At $5 a meal, it's a bit pricey for a peanut butter and jelly, Horizon "organic" milk (see an interesting write-up in today's Chicago Tribune for more info on this company's suspect actions), and chips or fruit. Chicago Tribune reporter Monica Eng (who served on the college newspaper with DH) recently reviewed this for the Trib. I will share some of her thoughts when I finish unpacking.

I give the Quiznos kids meal two thumbs up, four forks, or a top rating with whatever symbols we decide to use here at the CAKE. However, my opinion may have been influenced that it was the only proper meal (if it can even be called that) we ate yesterday during our drive home from Tennessee. We'd subsisted on crackers, cookies, one large shared apple and water all the way from eastern TN, through Kentucky until we made it to a Quiznos in southern Indiana.
