A couple months ago I wrote a post in my Home Pride Update series while on vacation in Nebraska. In Vacation Bread I covered some of the local bread offerings in Omaha.
This weekend I am in Missouri for the celebration of my parents’ 50th Anniversary.
I decided to check out what breads are available here, but not back home.
We were at Wal-Mart today doing some shopping for the anniversary lunch on Sunday, and of course I headed to the bread aisle.
They had a lot of interesting breads to look at. They had a variety of Bunny brand bread choices. Above you see Bunny Whole Grain White and Bunny Sandwich. I really like the colorful packaging.
Another Bunny choice was Soft-Twist bread. It had an interesting look to it. There were also two Sunbeam choices. The first is above and is Sunbeam White bread. I have always liked the Sunbeam logo with the little girl eating bread.
The other Sunbeam choice was Sunbeam King. I thought that there was another Sunbeam variety, but on closer inspection found an interesting variety of bread.
I had never heard of Mary Jane and Friends bread. Above is the Giant variety. I did find out that Mary Jane and Friends is owned and distributed by Flowers Foods and is one of their regional brands.
Even though I have made the choice of a temporary replacement bread for Home Pride Wheat Bread, I decided that I should try one of the choices available to me here in Missouri.
I decided to go with the Bunny Honey Wheat for my test here in Missouri. I have had my first piece of bread from the loaf, and it is a good bread. I did not have any doubts that it would be good as Bunny is also a regional brand of Flowers Foods.
Another interesting loaf of bread was the Bunny 1/2 Soft-Loaf pictured with the Honey Wheat above. The bread was just that. A half loaf of bread. I sometime wish that I could buy only half a loaf of bread. Especially if I am about to go on a trip and can’t use a full loaf before I leave. My freezer sometimes fills up with partial loaves 🙂
I did make a quick check of my news sources and didn’t see anything new about the return of Home Pride Bread. For the latest, see my post about Flowers Foods’ latest conference call.
