Why Rye? It’s Better Than a Stick in the Eye.
That headline is a start, but hardly the whole answer. Of course a loaf of rye bread is better than a stick in the eye. It's also better than saying goodbye. And starting to cry. Or telling a lie. And for some bread-lovers, it's even better than a big piece of pie. And what's the very best thing about a loaf of rye? Why, eating it, we cannot lie.
Trader Joe's Bavarian Rye Bread is a sliced rye loaf with a slightly sourdough flavor. Its list of ingredients is short, and its flavor is big on the distinctive flavor of rye. It may instill an otherwise inexplicable desire to make a Reuben sandwich. It may cause you to crave toast slathered with real butter. Or it may provoke an interest in smoked salmon, cream cheese, and capers - the thinner-than-a-bagel slices make great bagel substitutes here. Bavarian Rye delivers not only a great Rye experience; it also delivers a great value. We're selling each 24 ounce loaf for $2.99, every day. You'll find it on our bakery racks.
