Chrissy Teigen Convinced a Huge Restaurant Chain to Rename a Menu Item With a Single Tweet

Such is the power of the famous foodie — and her all-powerful social media presence.

By Jenny Berg

Chrissy Teigen is not only an expert home chef: The model mama knows her way around a fast-casual meal. So, when Teigen offers some friendly, soup-related advice to a popular chain, that eatery best listen up — and it seems that Panera got the memo. 

Here's what went down. Teigen recently took to Twitter to weigh in on a contentious phenomenon that Good Morning America referred to as a "breakfast battle." (Nope, it didn't have to do with trying to get your toddler to eat.)

In a segment, the morning show shared that Panera was asking the Food and Drug Administration to redefine its definition of "eggs." In short: the good people of Panera feel that anything that contains additives or egg substitutes should be referred to as an "egg product." Only actual eggs, you see, should be called eggs.

Take a peek at the segment, below: 

Never one to ignore the topic of food, Teiegen responded to the clip. "Yes I agree that only actual eggs should be called eggs," she posited, before suggesting another type of verbiage. The Cravings author feels, apparently, that Panera's broccoli-cheddar soup should be henceforth be known as: "Delicious Cream Times." 

The food chain, it turns out, was charmed by Teigen's inspiration. "[Chrissy Teigen] we loved your suggestion so much that we changed the name [of the soup] for a day ... seriously," the chain tweeted, before showing a snap of a soup carton that read: "Delicious Cream Times." 

Teigen was so flummoxed, she could only tweet back: "OMG." 

While the soup has since gone back to its former name ("broccoli-cheddar," ICYMI), Delicious Cream Times will always live on in our memories and cravings. And, perhaps the next time we go to Panera, we'll try to order it anyway. You know, as a sort of off-menu, secret-society kind of thing. 

We'll have what Chrissy's having.
