She said usually people buy it to feed birds and so on. There was no difference between it and the day old bread on the shelf. Skeptical I bought a bag and here's what it yielded!
- 6 completely unsquashed loaves of Nature's Own loaves
- 3 misc. loaves
- 1 somewhat squashed loaf of Nature's Own
- 2 bags of Cobblestone Mills Hoagie Rolls
- 1 bag Cobblestone Mills Kaiser Rolls
- 2 bags regular hamburger buns
That comes out to .18 a loaf!
We don't like plain white bread and hamburger buns, so I turned those into the most delicious croutons I've ever made in about 15 minutes. The squashed loaf went into bread pudding and one package of kaiser rolls was eaten with homemade chicken soup. Everything else went into the freezer. We go through about a loaf a weekday for our family of 5 voracious appetites. At $2.50 or so a loaf, we are saving about $46.40 a month on bread alone. Here's my math:
$2.50 a loaf x 20 weekdays a month = $50.00
.18 a loaf x 20 weekdays = $3.60
$46.40 savings per month!
