Here’s an idea that’s been a long time coming: smaller loaves of bread for single and two person households.
When you live alone, a full loaf of bread can take over a week to eat. Meaning you either struggle through a few days of eating the stale end, (and, no, toasting does not hide the staleness) or throw away half the loaf.
Now bachelor guys (and girls) can have fresh bread without wasting most of it. Responding to growing consumer requests, Oroweat, a division of Bimbo Bakeries USA, (Yes. Bimbo. They are my new favorite baked goods company) announced it is launching Mini Loaves, a line of its most popular breads in loaves with fewer slices.
Right now it’s only available in California, Arizona and New Mexico, but hopefully other bakeries will adopt the idea. That way we’ll all be able to stop toasting the leftover bread, because, seriously, it doesn’t help.
