On a recent food shop in Asda I found myself pondering in the bread aisle trying to find a loaf of bread that I wanted that didn't cost more than a pound. Bread seems so expensive to me these days, especially the big brand named ones like Kingsmill and Hovis, so I was glad to see a 400g loaf of Warburtons for the reasonable price of 0.68p. Warburtons is an established and recognised brand so I was hopeful that the quality would reflect this.
Product & Opinion
- - - - - - - - - - - - -
The loaf I bought is Warburtons "Danish" white sliced bread. The loaf weights 400g and is the average sized loaf.
Warburtons describe this bread "The lighter white bread", which refers to its light fluffy texture and reasonable calorie content. The slices are quite thin compared to others on the market which I like and taste light to eat. Once toasted they become extra crispy. However when using fresh it can be quite difficult to spread margerine on because it is so fluffy and thin in texture.
It is suitable for home freezing if you wish or can be stored in a cool dry place and will stay fresh in my experience for about 3-4 days if stored correctly and the packaging is sealed back up after use.
Packaging & Price

The bread comes in a half clear, half coloured blue thin plastic wrapper (see picture). As half of the plastic wrapper is clear you can easily see the bread through the packaging and judge the colour and thickness of the bread before you buy. On the lower blue half of the wrapper the words "Danish" and "The lighter white bread" are written as an indication to the type of bread you are buying. Also the name Warburtons and the usual nutritional information, ingredients and contact details are printed on the packaging.
On average this bread currently cost 0.68p for a 400g loaf (Asda & Tesco).

Each slice of this bread has 61 calories, 0.3g of fat, 0.6g of sugar and 0.3g of salt.
For those with allergies please be advised that this product contains wheat flour, wheat gluten, soya any soya flour.
Wheat flour, Water, Yeast, Salt, Dextrose, Emulsifiers, Soya Flour, Preservative Calcium Propionate, Flour Treatment Agent Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C).
Overall, I am happy with this bread and will continue to buy it. If you like thick bread I don't recommend this bread due to it light texture. A good option for people that are looking to control their weight due to the reasonable calorie content per slice.
Thanks for Reading
This morning for my breakfast I had an egg on toast and I used bread from a loaf that I have never had before. Yesterday, while out shopping, I couldn't find my usual loaf so I bought Warburtons Danish 'the lighter white bread'. It comes in a clear and pale blue wrapper with the Warburtons logo written in white on a red background on the top and the sides of the wrapper. On the logo it says that they have been family bakers since 1876 but in fact they started in a store in Bolton in 1870.
On the base of the wrapper you will find the storage instructions, the nutritional information, the ingredients, allergy advice and finally customer care. It also says that this bread is Vegetarian Society Approved and also the slogan "No Vikings were harmed in making this deliciously soft loaf!" and signed by Jonathon Warburton.
Nutritionally this bread is better for you than a lot of white breads being only:-
* Calories = 61 per slice
* Protein = 2.7g
* Carbohydrates = 11.8g
(of which sugars) = 0.6g
* Fat = 0.3
(of which saturates) = 0.1g
* Fibre = 0.7g
* Sodium = 0.11g
* Salt = 0.28g
Which when compared to other white breads isn't too bad. For those who need to worry about intolerances, this product contains wheat, gluten and soya and is produced in a bakery which uses milk, sesame seeds and barley.
Opinion :- I would have to say that this is one of the nicest white breads I have ever coma across, I usually use wholemeal, as I don't normally like white, finding it normally too doughy and gooey. This bread is very light and when I took a slice from the wrapper I immediately thought how soft and fluffy it felt. It tasted really very nice with chewy crusts and it toasted really well giving a really light and crispy toast. I would highly recommend this bread to anyone who usually eats white bread, and to anyone who, like me normally has only brown or wholemeal, why not give this a try as a tasty alternative.
Cost :- This bread retails at around 70 - 85p depending on where you shop which for a 400gram loaf seems to be a little on the expensive side but is well worth every penny for the taste and texture of it.
Summary :- A nice tasty bread. 4/5
I don't get this bread at all, I'm a lover of most types of bread but the shop by me had run out of our usual Warburtons bread so I had to grab a loaf of this Danish White.
The slices are stupidly thin, it's good for toast because the toast goes nice and crispy and not soggy but for sandwiches it's just a waste of time.
If you put anything even a bit wet on the bread it starts falling apart and even though it's got quite a nice faint taste the flavour of any filling you put in it will completely overwhelm it so that you can't even taste the crusts!
There's also loads too much air in the bread and I know it's that what gives it the Danish taste but I love to be able to taste my bread and when I have a butty I want it to fill me up and not leave me feeling mega hungry still.
The slices are also very small, my dad tried to have a fish finger butty with this bread when he come in from work and it was a waste of time. He got 2 fish fingers on it comfortable but the 3rd wouldn't go on and then when he sprinkled the vinegar over it the slices of bread started falling to bits! lol
I deffo won't buy this again even if there's no other bread in the shop, the taste of it is proper nice and like I said it's dead good for crispy toast but this bread just isn't suitable for a family like ours who likes hot sandwiches because the bread isn't up to it.
The loaf cost me about £1.00 and that's a rip off as well because that's not far off the price of a normal Warburtons loaf and you're not getting anywhere near as much bread!!! lol
Not recommended.... the bread tastes proper nice but it's stupid because of how thin it is and how small the slices are!!!
Warburton's Danish Sliced White Bread
I like my bread , im a bread kind of girl , breakfast ,lunch and dinner your find me with a slice (cant be doing good for my insides)
My bread must be a few of the following white ( un healthy I know!!!) soft soft soft and tasty oh and I like a chewy crust and I must say the Danish loaf is one of the BEST I have come across in a while.
I purchased it at my local tesco at 72p for 400g which I thought was a bit better then over a pound for hovis or kingsmill.

In all I love this bread it stores well (in the bread bin for up to a week) freezes and defrost well with the same softness as if it was new from the shop.
It toasts well perhaps not as good as a full thick sliced bread but what do you expect it a Danish loaf
5 ***** stars from me and will be buying in future.
Pussssss ......... great with a bit of chesse on toast and lee perins
I am on a limited budget at times so I like to try new bread and other items when the budget allows and thanks to a new park-time job I've been able to pick up a loaf of this bread. 400g is around 70-75p in the big supermarkets and this is the perfect size for a couple of lunches so this usually lasts a couple of days in my house.
This bread is provided in a polythene bag with a neck seal (which shows the best before date) and providing this bag is opened carefully it can be resealed for freshness. I find that this stays soft for a good few days on average and this is an ample amount of time in my house. However, this can be frozen (like most loaves) to be used at a later date.
This bread is white and is quite soft, however, the slices are much thinner than a normal loaf so this is definitely for the more weight conscious amongst us! This makes a nice sandwich or a lighter piece of toast which is perfect with a small tin of beans & ideal as a lunch.
There really is nothing wrong with this bread, it's soft & pretty tasty. There is less bread for my money and the slices are thinner, however, the bread is nice & I thoroughly enjoy it. I don't mind paying a little more for good quality bread.
Each slice contains 61 calories, 0.3g fat & 0.28g of salt which is not too much at all for a piece of toast (without toppings of course) and this is one of the reasons that I am rating this bread 4/5.
When it comes to white sliced bread, I usually prefer Warburtons because it lasts longer and freezes well, but their Danish bread did not come up to my expectations.
This is a 400g loaf of bread in a light blue plastic bag type of wrapper. It is expensive at 83p for a half size loaf. A standard sized large Kingsmill loaf weighs in at 800g, and cost about £1.07 although bread comes in many different weights now, so this is certainly a highly priced loaf.
This Danish bread is whipped up and very light so a loaf may look the same size as a standard large one but you are actually getting half the weight. The slices themselves are small so you will need three or four if you normally eat two slices of bread.
The bread itself is ultra soft and very thin, and it does not make very good sandwiches because the bread falls to bits and tears as you eat it. I almost had a disaster with a chicken salad sandwich. The bread started to tear as I was eating and all the filling burst through the bread and ended up all down my front. I'm not usually such a messy eater!
I don't particularly like it for toast either, because it tends to go hard before it is brown enough for me. There is a distinct choice between hard toast that breaks and crumbles as you eat it, or soft rubbery toast. Neither suits me.
I didn't like the consistency of this when it came to dunking it in soup, either. It just seemed to go all soggy and almost melt into the soup. It isn't very filling either and at 61 calories a slice I thought it might be healthier to eat one slice of filling bread instead of three of these.
On the positive side it lasts for about three days after opening but needs to be kept somewhere cool or it will get that strange, foisty smell of 'sweating bread'. It does keep well I the freezer and doesn't go yellow, or grey like some of the cheaper loaves do after thawing. In fact I would say that the thawed bread keeps as long as it does from fresh.
I have tried a few types of bread but Warburtons Danish white bread became our favourite. We don't eat much bread, so I buy two loafs for a week for 3 of us (our younger son does not eat bread yet).
Warburtons Danish white bread comes out in a partially transparent partially light blue wrapper. You can easily see that this one is the Danish bread as it is written with large letters on it. It is a 400g loaf.
I usually buy it in Sainsbury's for 0.74 pounds but I have seen it in Tesco as well, it was 0.83 as I remember. It is not a big difference after all. It is more expensive than other breads, but this is not obvious at first. This bread is do light that at first it seems to be almost as large as the other breads. But it is only 400 grams.
It is recommended on the wrapper to keep it in a cool dry place, ideally not refrigerated. Well as it takes us 3-4 days to eat one loaf I keep it in the refrigerator. I take care to close well the wrapper. I freezed one while we were on holiday, I got it out and it is as fresh as a newly baked one.
It has a very light texture, so it is quite difficult to spread even the melt butter on it. We usually eat it as a toast. I put it in the toaster, then I spread the butter on it and we eat it with ham, cheese and tomato. The slices are thin, but I like it.

I know that it consists preservatives and emulsifiers, that is why I decided to buy a breadmaker for us. As I have two little kids at home, sometimes occurs that I don't have time to bake a bread, and I buy one at Sainsbury's. Then I choose Warburtons Danish white bread. So I recommend it, but the home made bread has different taste and texture, and after all you know exactly what it contains.
Last Saturday, I had a craving for toasted bread with butter, so I went to the nearest supermarket to get a loaf of my favourite Walburton Danish white bread.
Warburtons started as a grocery store in Bolton in 1870 and in 1897 started their first bakery business. Through the years, the company have kept up to date with new technology and style of management and have always kept the business within the family. The bakery is currently run by the fifth generation of the Warburtons family.
The Warburtons range consists of different types of bread such white and wholemeal, bakery snacks such as teacakes and crumpets, rolls such as sandwich rolls and muffins.
My favourite is the Danish White bread. The bread has a light and soft texture. The bread taste nice on its own with butter though it is not easy to spread the butter or margarine as it is so soft. It is great as a sandwich and one of my favourite sandwiches with this bread is ham and lettuce, the softness of the bread together with the salty ham and crunchy lettuce is simply divine. When toasted, the bread has a crisp crust that is not thick and hard and it taste great with peanut butter or jam.
The individual slice of Danish White Bread is quite thin, it is easy to get carried away with a few slices, hence it never last long once it is opened.
Danish white bread has a low calorie count of 61 Kcal per slice and each loaf weighs 400g. It's available in most supermarkets and it cost 89p per loaf.
In conclusion, if you like soft and light bread, Danish white is a good choice to buy but if you like bread that is more substantial in volume and weight, then, this bread might not be ideal as you would need more slices.
Other than that, it is a delicious white bread.
