I had a little trouble finding it as it was on a temporary display instead of on the bread shelves.
This week I was able to follow my normal Saturday routine and found Home Pride Bread on the shelf in the grocery section at Target.
I was glad to see that it once again had a designated place on the shelf. I looked at the tag, and it didn’t say Home Pride Bread. It simply said Sliced Bread, but I think this was a preemptive measure by Flowers Foods so that they would have a place for Home Pride in their section of the bread aisle.
This is such a nice sight to see that I had to take another picture of just the Home Pride Wheat bread.
This week I have had several comments on my many Home Pride Update posts about people finding Home Pride in their stores. The general consensus is that it tastes the same as before. Of course, this is what Flowers Foods was making sure would be the case. They want the loyal customers of the Hostess breads to return as loyal customers of the Flowers Foods breads.
I have had a good week of trying some of my favorite sandwiches with Home Pride Bread.
My first sandwich last week when I made it Home to Home Pride was a PBJ.
Since that time I have tried different jams and jellies with peanut butter, butter, honey, tuna salad and of course my daily toast. I also just enjoyed several slices of bread without anything on it.
This evening I decided it was time for a grilled cheese sandwich made with Home Pride Bread. I fired up the stove with my cast iron skillet and proceeded to grill one up. I did use a little bit too much butter, but it was still good 🙂
It has been almost eleven months since I posted Not My Bread!! and I am glad that Home Pride Bread is finally back on the shelves.
I still have a couple posts up my sleeve, but the Home Pride Updates will soon cease. Maybe I should make it to Home Pride Update L and make it stand for last. Hmmmm……
One of the posts will probably be about my motivations to blog about bread.
Are you enjoying the return of Home Pride and Wonder Bread?
