This Bread Is Pretty Killer

I can’t believe it has been over a week since I took a jaunt down to the US of A for a little foodie shopping fun. As you may recall, I picked up a plethora of blog world delights that I can’t get up here in Canada, including a loaf of the famed Dave’s Killer Bread.

I went with the Powerseed bread, because it looked well, seedy. There were a lot of loaves to choose from, so it was hard to decide. But I figured you couldn’t go wrong with 6g of fibre per slice.

This past week I’ve made sure to get my $5.99 worth out of that loaf, eating it in a variety of ways.

I started with a quick little sandwich.

Nestled into those seed-studded slices was some leftover chicken, avocado, cheddar, and grainy mustard.

A satisfying melange of flavours for sure. And good sandwich bread.

Next up was a quick breakfast of toast with peanut butter and strawberry jam.

Probably my favourite way to enjoy the bread. I had this on more than one occasion when I needed a quick breakfast.

I had to try it out in a grilled cheese sandwich of course.

Stuffed with apple, smoked gouda, and red pepper jelly. A little over done, but still delicious.

Then there was French toast.

Topped with a little strawberry jam and maple syrup.

Miss from the photos would be a peanut butter, banana, and cinnamon honey sandwich I took to school, and a piece of cinnamon toast that was an evening snack one day. Like I said, I made sure to try it out in a variety of ways, so I could give it a fair review.

So…what did I think?

It’s damn good bread. I like the fact that it’s made in the sandwich loaf style, so you can get more delicious fillings into those sandwiches. Not to knock my beloved Silver Hills bread though (it’s local, it’s healthy, and it’s amazing in its own right), but I would rather have the wider sandwich bread than the typical, more square loaf.

I found the Powerseed variety to have tons of seeds throughout (big plus), and loved the texture as well – softer than some whole grain breads I’ve had. Good nutritional stats as well – 6 g fibre, 6 g protein, and 100 kCal per slice. I did find it to be a touch sweeter than I would like in a bread, but it wasn’t the end of the world.

Would I replace my Silver Hills bread with this? Well, no. I can’t get it in Canada. But I would consider picking up a loaf or two if I’m ever in the US again, and would like to give a few of the other varieties a go. Even if it were available here though, I don’t know if I would make a complete switch, as it is a bit more expensive than the bread I currently buy (plus I can get Silver Hills at Costco for a really good deal). But if you see this bread on your local grocery store shelves, I highly suggest you give it a go. Great taste and good for you – what more could you want?

    I’m in love with Dave’s Killer Bread. My dad brought me some last year and we tried to make it last as long as possible… I think it made it 10 days. For two loaves.
