“ Brand: Tesco / Type: White thick sliced bread „
As I sit here writing this review on my trusty new laptop I actually feel an excitment that I don't believe is normal lol. I love writing reviews on bread......and thats because I absoloutely adore the stuff and could happily live on it and not alot else.
The other day I sent my boyfriend out for some essentials listing bread as one of the most essential items and he came back with this Tesco Thick Sliced White Loaf that set him back a mere 74p. Usually when I'm buying a loaf, I love the stuff so much I go for what I consider premium brands so wasn't relishing the thought as much about eating this to my usual stuff I get to be honest!
The bread comes lined up in a clear and red see-through bag, which is tied to one end. On the front of the bag of course we are told that it ius Tesco White 'Sliced' Bread 'Thick' and that information is down the sides of the bag too and then on the back of the bag other information listed includes ingredients, allergy advice, a full nutritional chart is displayed, storage details are given (this is freezable), the weight is given which is 800g (standard sized loaf and the only size I have seen this available to purchase in by the way) and contact details for Tesco are given. Nice enough bag and informative enough too.
The Bread Itself:
What you get is several slices of pure white in colour bread with really light golden crusts on the edges. First off I was pleased that it had a lovely fresh smell of bread to it however not so impressed that Tesco call this thick cos in my opinion it really isn't at all and in actual fact is uite thin but bouncy enough.
This is great frozen and defrosted do however make sure that if your using this bread that it is stored correctly as I left mine out on the worktop, sealed and it lasted 2 days that way but I reckon stored correctly this would be fine for about 4 days.
Taste wise well its nice enough of course and it tastes of wheat and it is well seasoned and not a dried up bread but moist without being soggy. Great for toasting as it isn't thick and goes crispy, makes nice enough soft sandwiches and things like that. It has a hint of yeast flavouring gently coming through and all in all I rather like this bread and feel that it is very worth the money and would certainly buy it again in the future however not sure Tesco should refer to it as thick!
