When I was a child, I loved white bread because we had it so rarely. Except for a few special occasions, my mom only bought multigrain and whole wheat bread. I enjoyed both, but getting a loaf of soft and doughy white bread was always a special treat. When I got a little older, my tastes changed and I preferred the complex flavour of multigrain bread products. And then I became a parent and I found I had become just like my mom. White bread just wasn’t something that entered our house.
When I heard about new Dempster’s Smart bread, I was intrigued. Dempster’s Smart is bread made with sixteen whole grains that promised the taste and texture of white bread. I received some coupons to test out the bread for myself and I was so curious to see if it actually tasted the same as the white bread I loved so much as a child!
I picked up a few loaves of bread at the local grocery store and headed home to test out the bread. The first thing I noticed was the texture; it was denser and less moist than traditional white bread. I found I actually preferred the heavier texture; it tasted almost the same as homemade bread!
Over the next few days, I used the bread for sandwiches and toast and the whole family devoured it. There’s nothing new about that; they love their bread! But it was nice to see that they enjoyed the Dempster’s Smart bread just as much as any other variety!
Dempster’s recently held a great promotion on the Dempster’s Facebook page challenging Canadians to share their favourite white bread recipes in the Dempster’s White Bread Taste-Off.
