Panda Express Launches Orange Chicken and Broccoli Beef Milkshakes Nationwide

SpoonFed: Food Beast


Panda Express just announced its new line of entree-inspired milkshakes, available today at all participating locations nationwide.

Previously tested in select markets in Washington, Colorado, and Southern California, the shakes come in flavors inspired by two of Panda’s most popular dishes: “Orange Chicken” and “Broccoli Beef.” The OC features a refreshing, vanilla-citrus base blended with pieces of real chicken and topped with a spicy-sweet orange drizzle, while the BB buries pieces of whole steamed broccoli beneath a sweet fusion of chocolate, beef, and soy sauce. Unlike their meal counterparts, each drink is part of Panda Express’ “Wok Smart” menu at only 100 calories a pop, or 50 if you get them half and half.
We visited one our local spots to try the bizarre concoctions early, and were pleasantly surprised. Though the Broccoli Beef was pretty damn undrinkable (more broccoli than beef), the Orange Chicken was sweet, and mildly resembled a richer, more savory orange creamsicle.



The sort of story you hope is an April Fool’s.
