Sourdough Sliced Bread
February 2, 2015—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Toast sounds simple, and in a way, it is simple. But, when you consider that the source of good toast is really good bread, it suddenly sounds not so simple after all. After testing a wide variety of contenders, we've come to the unanimous decision that the very best bread for toast-making is Sourdough. And because toast requires slices of bread, our conclusion also included the rationale that sliced Sourdough is the most practical Sourdough for this particular endeavor. And thus, Trader Joe's Sourdough Bread tops our list of "Best Breads for Toast" for this and every year.
Our Sourdough Bread is made exclusively for us, and will be slightly different depending on where in Trader Joe's country you pick up your loaf - the flavor of Sourdough depends largely on the "starter", which is a living culture that lends the bread its signature sour profile. Because every starter is different, every bakery produces a slightly different flavor profile. If you visit a Trader Joe's in Florida, your Sourdough toast will be just a bit different from the Sourdough toast you make with the Trader Joe's Sourdough you buy in Seattle. What they all have in common is their excellence - especially when toasted. So slather on some butter, a bit of jam, or make a PB&J on Sourdough toast. You may even take that toasting to a higher level, and make a scrumptious grilled cheese… on Sourdough. Toast away. You'll be glad you did. We're selling each 24 ounce loaf of Sourdough Bread for $2.99 - $3.49, depending on region, every day. You'll find it on our bakery racks.
