Ooopsie. An employee of fast food restaurant Panera Bread was fired after posting a video “exposing how the eatery makes its mac-n-cheese dish.
The employee originally posted the clip to the video-sharing app TikTok, but it was also on Twitter and earned nearly ten million views.
The video shows Panera employees preparing a pre-cooked plastic bag of man-n-cheese clearly showing that the restaurant does not make its mac-n-cheese fresh in the shop, but instead serves a pre-made mixture of the dish.

But it appears that Panera was not amused by the “expose.”

Panera has not commented on the employee. But it did release a statement on the mac-n-cheese.
A spokesperson for the chain released a statement saying that the mac ‘n’ cheese is “made offsite with our proprietary recipe developed by our chefs.”
“It is shipped frozen to our bakery cafes — this allows us to avoid using preservatives which do not meet our clean standards,” the statement said.
