“ Brand: Warburtons / Type: Bread „
Of late I've been trying to pay a little more attention to my diet. I make no bones about the fact that I have had an eating disorder and eat a hell of a lot junk food so what I've been trying to do lately is not only vary my rigid diet (usually consisting mainly of warburtons 'Toastie Bread' as toast and with thick cut marmalade on it) but I've been trying to put into my body things that are a little healthier!
I came across these rolls in Sainsbury's priced at 79p (for 3) and decided to give them a whirl. Something I wasn't actually looking forward to eating really as I don't like wholemeal products as a rule and am such a stodgy white bread lover lol!
Oblong paper packet which is largely see through on the front of it and brown to the back. On the front I'm told these are 'New Look' Warburtons' Family Bakers Since 1876', 3 Wholemeal Soft Rolls which are baked with stone ground wholemeal and topped with wheat bran. The best before date is clearly stamped on as is nutritional information 'at a glance' per roll. On the back of the packet I'm told a bit about the product, storage instructions are given (these are suitable for freezing by the way), a full nutritional chart is listed, ingredients and allergy advice is given, contact details for Warburtons are listed and finally there is bar-code on there. Nice enough packet and I do like to be able to see the rolls through it.
A Bit About The Product According To The Back of The Packaging...
High in fibre.
Suitable for home freezing.
Suitable for Vegetarian's.
The Taste Test....
Ok so these rolls are surprisingly tasty! I wasn't as I mentioned earlier really looking forward to eating these however I was so wrong. In appearance they are a darkish brown in colour and appear soft and fluffy and are like sub rolls to look at being long and fairly thickish.
Easy to cut open, they don't fall apart everywhere and as suspected when fresh they really are light, airy and bouncy. They give off a little sort of baked smell and basically they taste lovely!
Smooth in texture and not at all bitty even the added bran on the top of each roll (which is only a splattering) is ground, soft and smooth. It gives a sort of burnt wholemeal taste against the soft bread and the whole thing is just nicely seasoned and not like eating a brick.
These are great just buttered and with soup! They can hold any fillings you desire (and plenty of them) and of course they can be toasted or anything they just simply are very versatile rolls. I found my packet to stay fresh for 3 days (stored in a bread-bin as these are not recommended to live in the fridge) and I also found them to be light on my tummy, not too filling and not one bit heavy. I really, really like these, they are high quality as you'd expect from Warburtons of course!
