Review of co-op white toastie bread

Now I am a girl who likes to eat healthy multi seeded loaves of bread. I tend to steer clear of white processed bread however, my other half really likes it. We had run out of our usual bread and so I stopped in at my local co-op. Popping in for a quick loaf of bread is never easy being dairy free as so many breads contain milk. As I was in a hurry I picked up the first loaf I saw and knew that my other half would be surprised by this possible purchase. Not only was the loaf suitable for dairy free me but also for vegans. So I made a quick dash to the till and purchased it.

The packaging is light brown in colour with several patterned leafs filling up this space. The wording to the front is simple, thick white toastie. To the back is the ingredients list highlights soya and wheat as the only allergens. There is also a separate V to the side of the packaging indicating that it is also suitable for vegans.

On opening the packet a familiar smell of what I would describe as white processed bread was noted. I can’t really put this into descriptive words though, sorry. The slices of bread looked fresh there was no dryness which I’ve noted with other loaves. I did my stoggyness test which basically involves me pressing the slice of bread gently with a finger. Sometimes this can result in the bread clumping together in a doughy mess. This did not happen, it bounced back as if I had never touched it. This was a good sign for me as I personally hate it when your sandwiches start going into this doughy mess before you can enjoy them. Especially if like me you make your sandwiches in advance for packed lunches. So far I was impressed by this bread, but what did it taste like ?

On biting into the bread it had a pretty neutral white bread processed taste to it. This is not a criticism it was what I expected. The bread did not congeal in my mouth from going soggy or stick to the roof of my mouth. This was also a pleasant surprise. It made a nice sandwich for someone like me who is not a fan of processed white bread. I also tried it as toast. It toasted well and was nice and crunch on the outside and slightly light to the inside.

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this bread it was one of the nicest white processed loaves of bread that I have had. My other half really enjoyed it and soon finished it of. I’m not sure if that is also because it is not normally allowed in the weekly shop. So thank you co-op for producing a nice white loaf that both dairy free me and vegans can enjoy.
