Behold: Panera Bread's New Iced-Coffee Glove Looks Exactly Like a Crispy Bread Bowl
If you've ever ordered an iced coffee in the middle of winter, lost all sensation in your fingertips while slurping it down, and thought, "Yep, the freezing numbness was 10/10 worth it," allow Panera Bread to rock your coffee-loving world. Inspired by the chain's steamy bread bowls, the limited-edition Iced & Toasty Bread Bowl Glove was designed to comfortably cradle your vanilla cream cold brew while keeping your whole hand warm. It might just be my stomach talking, but this could become a permanent part of my wardrobe all winter long.

No, it doesn't smell like freshly baked bread (sigh), but it is crumb-free and, as the name implies, it's also useful if you're carrying around a piping bowl of soup or a hot cup of coffee. So catch me with a loaf on each hand, broccoli and cheddar soup on the left and an iced caramel latte on the right.
