Advantages: Inexpensive, acceptable taste and texture.
Disadvantages: Not a lot of taste.
White loaf from the Tesco Value range.
Suitable for vegetarians.
---Why I Buy---
I often get the Tesco Value Bread these days - mainly because of the price - and the fact that if you do not finish off the whole loaf you don't feel too guilty feeding the remainder to the birds!
47p for 800 gram loaf.
Currently selling for just 47p it is a good staple food and I always keep some in my freezer.
Would not say it actually has much flavour - but used in toasted sandwiches or with beans on it is quite acceptable.
Granted sometimes I treat myself to an expensive 'proper' loaf which I enjoy for its own sake - but for general family use this is quite acceptable.
I use it mostly as toast - but only because I tend to eat more toast. It is ok if you want it in sandwiches too - but obviously a home-made loaf has a better smell and taste.
With beans, eggs or cheese and onions it makes great toast and toasted sandwiches.
---Would I Recommend?---
Yes - if you are after an inexpensive staple food.
Lots of people would like to buy the more speciality breads but the constraints of their budgets prevent this. Therefore this is a perfectly acceptable bread that is actually edible and is not too doughy.
3 stars - its perfectly adequate to eat with other things but not the sort of bread you would want to eat on its own.
Inexpensive, acceptable taste and texture.
Not a lot of taste.
Summary: Inexpensive but an ok family staple
