Went to the store recently and bought a loaf of our preferred 100% Whole Wheat Oroweat Bread, distributed by Bimbo Bakeries in Horsham, PA. Sadly, it looks as though it will be going the same route Grandma's Sycamores did a year ago.
Permanently... out the door! It now contains non-fat milk and whey, as many of their breads do now.
Even though we've been enjoying this brand for years, I usually double check the label. However, this time I was in a hurry as I was heading out of town and wanted to be sure there was something at home for sandwiches.
Kudos to my husband for label reading! I tend to give him a hard time for not paying enough attention to ingredients and this time he proved me wrong. He called to ask if this was our normal choice of breads because of the obvious ingredients it contained. I was astounded.
Sure enough, he was absolutely correct.
I went to the same store today to check out the Oroweat options. I found one loaf of Oroweat Sourdough Muffins. I have a feeling I may have just found the last edible loaf of Sourdough for our home. I hope they don't change their Sandwich Thins! They've become a household staple.
I called the customer service department at Oroweat in hopes I had just come across something unusual. Alas, NO such luck. The woman I spoke with confirmed that they had, indeed, changed their production of this product to include these two ingredients six months ago.
Just another reminder as to why we need to read the ingredients each and every time.
Now my next challenge. Can anyone tell me what other milk-free breads you are enjoying? Looks as though we'll be back on the hunt again!
