Another Costco find. My husband brought home a 2 loaf pack of this bread. We had never heard of it before, but we are always willing to give new products a shot.
The bread was called The Essential Baking Company Super Seeded Multi-Grain. For two breads vacuum sealed it was $7.99. $4.00 per loaf seems pretty decent for a fancy GF bread. I like breads with lots of seeds too.
I opened the first loaf today for a test. I just finished running 3 miles on the treadmill and wanted a filling snack. I toasted a slice (but not before I took a bite) and slathered it with almond butter and a teaspoon of jelly.
The texture un-toasted was pretty good. I remember, not that long ago, that all gf breads had to be toasted to be enjoyed. Bread has come a long way. You could eat this without toasting it. But toasted and topped, yum! There bread had a slight sweetness to it. If you look at the ingredients, there is Pear Juice Concentrate & Plum Puree listed. I am debating on if I would eat this as a sandwich with savory ingredients. I will have to try that next. But with as a nut butter/jelly or cream cheese sandwich it’s super good.
My husband also liked it. He agreed with me that it was a little sweet. He ate his toasted with veggie cream cheese.
(Can you see the tiny bite out of the corner. That is my handiwork)
Great snack bread. The slices are similar in size to the Udi’s breads. Not too big.
I will edit this post when I try it as a turkey sandwich and tell you if it works too.
Overall, I hope our local Costco continues to carry this bread. I would keep this on the shopping list. Good job Essential Baking Co!
