Lasting longer than Warburtons.

People need to understand that the bread is great, in my opinion after having both types of 50 50 bread from Warburton's and Hovis, I think Hovis is softer and lasts longer. It is just a shame that Ocado insist on delivering the bread with the bare minimum life span of three days, including delivery day...every time!

Oh My...

Well, I am no bread aficionado but I know what I don't like!! Oh Dear!! It wasn't this Best of Both by Hovis, bread. I really wanted to see if it would be a good substitute for brown bread, as I LOVE white bread. It's not!! It's incredibly dry and gets stuck to the roof of your mouth. The texture is also not at all 'fluffy' like white bread, but also not dense, like brown breads... it was gritty, for lack of a better term. If I were you, I'd make a firm choice on either a good white or a solid brown loaf... and not mix it up...

I find this bread a bit tasteless and really prefer to have proper brown or white bread.

Rating: 4 star out of 5

I liked it!!

I though this was a good compromise, my favoured type of bread being of the brown variety. Sadly I wasn't getting it past my 'white bread' loving children!

A good substitute for making your own

I generally make my own bread, either by machine or if time by hand. This loaf reminded me of my childhood, thick slices, slathered with butter - happy memories. Definitely something for this days when I'm too lazy for DIY!
