    sliced bread

    I don't know how far this is, but locally the bread is being sliced larger so you get fewer slices per loaf. something like Texas sized.

    Bizarre. Even in 'small town Ontario' we can get regular sliced bread. I don't care for the thick slices except for French toast.

    We have all kinds here in the big city! The bread aisle at the gigantic store is impressive. I've been stopping a lot at CVS Pharmacy lately and they just started carrying nice soft regular sliced white bread, not thin, not thick. Nice for sandwiches.

    I don't usually buy what I call American bread...like loaves of italian or French ( called that) then slice myself...but I have noticed those breads will mold very quickly unless I keep refrigerated...have had to toss a few half loaves out lately.....have been buying that kind of bread for years, but from a " bread bakery" which delivered to local store....now am in an area where only " big" grocery stores....bake their own....must be a different recipe...or like everything else...cutting down on something....less for more$$$$$$$

    Make my own most of the time. Learned bread making from my German Grandmother. She never purchased a loaf of bread in her lifetime. I do purchase at the store sometimes, but purchase the bakery bread and put it in the frig....otherwise, you are right, it gets moldy quickly...this is due to not having the preservatives in it.

    We mostly buy rye bread slices are as tall but thin. The special bread I buy for other uses has nuts, grains etc. Very good and better for me than white bread. The only white bread I would consider is homemade but, I don't have any time for it.

    The bread isle at the WalMart super center drives me nuts. I want to buy one of everything. I hate white bread - sticks to my teeth. Love rye.

    I like to bake my own. There are two problems with that: (1) when it is fresh baked, it's easy to butter and eat too much and (2) since there are no preservatives in it, some of it is bound to go to waste because I can't eat it fast enough. froggyintexas

    That is too funny. I don't have a bread machine or bake without it because I am powerless over fresh bread. I told my family never to get me a bread machine because I would quit life and bake and eat and bake and eat and after a while they would have to remove a wall to get me out!!!

    We have been purchasing unsliced French bread from our local WalMarts for $1 a loaf. It tastes like fresh baked bread and they will slice it free. We prefer it unsliced.

    Just curious. If you make bread in the bread machine can you not cut it in half and freeze the rest so that it doesn't have a chance to mold?

    With less preservatives there is faster spoilage. Less preservatives added to our food is a good thing for us.

    I agree with Stitchnripper! If I had warm bread from the bread machine, I could eat the whole thing with a stick of butter. And I'm already fat enough already! My husband would come home and say he smelled bread. Huh? There's no bread here!

    I've been buying Rudi's Ancient Grains bread in the gluten free section. Very pricey but so good. We eat less bread these days anyway because of the change in how wheat is being grown. I like thin bread with lots of texture. Can't stand that white gluey bread.
