April 07, 2010 // Franchising.com // Smyrna, GEORGIA — Atlanta Bread continues to search the globe for new, unique flavors to bring to its local bakery cafés. This spring, Atlanta Bread highlights the sweet and spicy flavor of the South African Peppadew® pepper in two new sandwiches, the Cape Town Peppadew Chicken Salad Sandwich and the Peppadew Roast Beef and Brie Panini.
Indigenous to South Africa, the Peppadew pepper was discovered less than twenty years ago. Atlanta Bread infuses the tangy flavor of this pepper into their classic chicken salad and serves it with a Peppadew honey mustard sauce on Honey Wheat in the Cape Town Peppadew Chicken Salad Sandwich.
Guests can also enjoy this distinctive flavor on a hot sandwich, the Peppadew Roast Beef & Brie Panini. This grilled sandwich combines the sweet heat of the Peppadew pepper with creamy, all-natural Brie, roast beef, and Peppadew honey mustard.
"We constantly strive to bring unique, international flavors to our guests by adding distinct twists to our menu items. By incorporating flavors like the South African Peppadew pepper and French all-natural Brie, we give guests an escape from the ordinary, "says Basil Couvaras, Vice President and COO of Atlanta Bread.
