One of my comfort foods from childhood has been bread (not toast) with butter. Lately, however, I’ve been quite disappointed with the taste and quality of prepackaged sliced bread. And I never thought I’d write about sliced bread, but here goes.
I’ve searched high and low for good bread, and have found it in many places. However, unless I plan ahead, my timing for the fresher loaves at Big Buns Bakery, or Trader Joe’s, or even Smith’s always seems to be off … So I end up hopefully picking up a bag of wheat or multi-grain from the grocery store, taste buds anticipating that delicious sandwich image in my belly-brain. More often than not, however, my taste buds are left disappointed, and half the package goes towards helping the birds in the backyard survive through the fall … then the winter, then the spring …
I wasn’t sure if the quality of manufactured bread had really gotten worse, or if my tastes had outgrown the childhood joys of plain bread & butter or PB&J.
But finally! And this is where the product endorsement comes in … I have found a delicious packaged bread at Walmart (of all places!). It’s called Sweet Honey Multi-Grain Bread, by Majesty Bakeries. These slices are just the right thickness and texture of grain and soft bread, with the slight sweetness of Hawaiian bread.
I was so impressed by this evening’s simple sandwich of bread and Pepper Jack cheese, that I had to look the company up. It turns out they are a wholesale bakery located in Las Vegas with products at several major retailers. Check them out! http://majestybakeries.com
