    When we think about families with children with autism coming to a game, theres barriers to re-entry, theres sensory overload when we score a touchdown and theres pyrotechnics, we felt the sensory room was what we needed to be fully accessible and the idea behind it was not to change the experience but deliver a solution if they needed to take a break. If the sensory bag wasnt enough, you dont have to leave the stadium. You can take a break, de-escalate, calm down and rejoin the experience when you felt ready.

    We have watched the coffee category expand and adapt as Millennials converted to coffee drinkers, attracted by the smoother flavor and artisanal characteristics and third - and fourth-wave coffee, we knew our culinary team could deliver that same premium, hand-crafted sensory experience with the bellowed category hero of espresso in our best-in-class, fresh-baked bagel. The caffeine in the bagel is sourced from both espresso and coffee-cherry flour. Einstein’s exact recipe is proprietary but in addition to packing a caffeinated punch, the new bagel also has 13 grams of protein, derived from cocoa. We ’d all love a little extra energy in the morning, but do the enhancned bagels actually taste any good ? The product left tasters divided in a pretty even split. The product itself resembles a dark brown pumpernickel bagel and, upon the first few nibbles, tastes like a chewy plain bagel with a slightly sweet taste. After a few more bites, however, the bitterness from the espresso really kicks in.
