Product Description

At Hovis we recognise the power of good food. That is why every Hovis loaf is made with natural wholewheat goodness to give you the foundations for a healthy diet. Even the name Hovis has been coined from the Latin HOminis VIS, meaning 'strength of man'. We are also the only major bread brand not to use artificial preservatives and flavourings.

With Hovis Best of Both you get the taste, texture and look of white bread and all the goodness of wholemeal, wheatgerm is the very heart of the wheat and is a good source of vitamins E, B1, B6 and Riboflavin.

Goes off so quickly

I would never buy bread that goes off within a day or two in a supermarket so am annoyed to recieve this from Ocado where I would expect better service. Its a shame as it is a good product.

short life

Arrived Tuesday, best before Thursday. In line with the min shelf life stated, but ... A bit short compared to local shop!

Rating: 2 star out of 5

very short life

I agree with other reviewers who note that this has a short best before date --just 2 days left on the loaf I bought. It was already dry when it arrived, and properly stale 2 days later.

Out of date too quickly

Ocado sends bread that is going out of date too quickly. I think I need to start buying mine from the store directly, the loaves from the store last much longer.

This is ok but not as good as I would expect from Hovis
