Sainsbury's Tiger Bread
Advantages: Tasty and fresh
Disadvantages: It's addictive!
Recently I have been eating quite a lot of healthy foods, plenty of fruit and vegetables and less breads, pastas and rice than I used to eat. Cutting back this way has helped me to lose the few extra pounds that I gained over the festive season but I must admit that I do love decent bread and so have been treating myself a couple of times a week to some freshly baked tiger breads.
I must admit that I love tiger bread, it is difficult to explain the taste because of course, it is quite distinctive to tiger bread and nothing else really compares! The crust should always be chewy, and never baked for too long and the bread inside should be fluffy and light.
Luckily, Mr Siamese and I live relatively close to a couple of large supermarkets who have in store bakeries, which means that I can pop in and pick up fresh bread whenever I need to. Today, when I was wandering around Sainsburys, this tiger bread had just been baked, was still warm and incredibly enticing!
A 800g loaf of this bread cost me just £1 and is wrapped in clear and breathable cellophane. Inside, the bread has a rough looking orange crust with the odd looking markings on the top which make it quickly identifiable as a tiger loaf. The loaf feels quite soft when you pick it up so be careful not to squash it when you are carrying it home.
Words cannot describe just how good this bread is! Whether you are eating it as a sandwich, with soup or just with a spreading of butter (and blackcurrant jelly - a personal favourite!), you cannot fail to be impressed. The bread is as fresh and delicious tasting as you will find anywhere and the combination of the chewy crust and soft fluffy bread inside is mouth wateringly good and sure to impress you. I cannot recommend this bread highly enough to you, Sainsburys have found a winner here and it is well worth trying....again, and again and again!
The loaf is not sliced which means that you can cut the right sized piece for yourself. I like a decent chunk of this because it is very tasty and one thin slice is never enough. The bread is fantastically fluffy and light inside and perfect for spreading with butter and eating on its own. It is best to soften the butter first though as the bread is very light and butter straight from the fridge can tear holes in it easily.
Quite simply, this is perhaps my favourite type of bread. The simple and home baked flavour is hard to rival and the deliciously chewy crust provides the perfect balance for the soft white bread inside. If you are a fan of tiger bread then you are sure to be impressed by this one.
Summary: Well worth buying
