I don’t know about most people, but I am a creature of habit, once I find something I like, I tend to stick with it. I have always noticed that Noodles and Co have soups and salads (and now they have sandwiches too!) but I always get my same ol’ delicious fav pasta options. Either Penne Rosa, Pasta Fresca or my new recent favorite, Japanese Udon Noodles.
We decided to try a random assortment of items, and both Mandy (communications manager) and Tessa let us know if there was something particular that we wanted to try we could but we were content with the choices already made. One of the first things that they both emphasized was the fact that they want people to know that they can customize their order to their liking. What you are seeing is not set in stone. They also encourage people to try new items and if they do not like the items to return them at no cost and get what they like, how awesome is that?
The first thing that we sampled was the “Very Berry Spinach Salad,” one of Chef Tessa’s newest creation and the newest addition to the menu. Although currently instead of berries, there are apples in the salad because strawberries are not yet in season<this has probably changed now>. The salad included apples/strawberries, pecans, house-made croutons, crumbled bacon and blue cheese atop spinach with a balsamic fig drizzle. Although I am not a fan of blue cheese on the salad was delicious and it was of Tessa’s favorite items on the menu. Next time I order it I will request the blue cheese be left out
We also got to try their Krispies (a weakness of Mandy’s, one of those once you pop the fun don’t stop situations), the Chocolate Chunk Cookie and the Snickerdoodle cookies. The Krispies were delicious, I am not always a fan, but I loved their version (and they are currently working to release a Smore version…can we all say yum). I wasn’t as big of a fan of the cookies, thought the chocolate chunk needed more chunks but the snickerdoodle wasn’t bad.
I was already a fan of Noodles and Company and I will continue to be after meeting those two awesome woman and learning a lot about the company. There are so many cool things that I learned about that I could go on and on about.
