Kaley Cuoco & Panera Launch New Craft Beverage Station — and a New Initiative!

PANERA BREAD launches the new Craft Beverage Station with Big Bang Theory’s KALEY CUOCO in Los Angeles!

TV’s Big Bang actress, Kaley Cuoco gets the sweet facts from Panera about added sugar and their new line of craft beverages at Panera Bread on Wednesday, Aug. 30, 2017, in Los Angeles.




Kaley Cuoco is excited to work with Panera by helping people know what’s in their cups. Added sugars are often hidden in beverages. Panera wants to help educate people about what’s in their food and beverages and they’ve created this new cup to do just that.





The new cup outlines added sugar measurements and calories for each Panera beverage, as well as regular cola, so you can make the best decision for you. The cup shows added sugar in teaspoons, not grams – which makes it easy to understand what you’re putting in your body.
Plus, Panera has a new line of craft beverages that are all 100% clean – no artificial preservatives, sweeteners, flavors and no colors from artificial sources.

How does the cup work?
It’s actually really straight-forward and easy to understand. The new cup outlines added sugar measurements and calories for each Panera beverage, as well as regular cola, so you can make the best decision for you.

Details on Panera’s Initiative.

A recent national survey* commissioned by Panera Bread revealed that 99% of Americans do not know the amount of added sugar in a 20 fl. oz. serving of standard cola, with 83% of Americans under-estimating the amount.


To better support and inform guests, Panera Bread announced it will be the first national restaurant company to place calories and added sugar information directly in the hands of guests. Beginning this week, the company will roll out a new “sweet facts” fountain beverage cup that lists the calories and added sugar in each of its six new craft beverages, as well as regular cola.

Panera has a history of industry-leading initiatives:
In 2004, we introduced chicken raised without antibiotics;
In 2007, we committed to remove all artificial trans fats from the menu;
In 2010, we were the first national restaurant to display calorie information on menu boards;
In 2014, we announced our plan to remove artificial sweeteners, preservatives, flavors and 
colors from artificial sources from our food menu by 2016;
In 2015, we unveiled our “No No List” and our progress toward our 2016 goal; and;
In January 2017, we celebrated our U.S. food menu being completely free of artificial 
sweeteners, preservatives, flavors and colors from artificial sources
In summer 2017, we committed to compliance with Menu Labeling and Retail Food Labeling 
laws by the original July 2018 date, despite
