I agree with recent reviewers, something has changed with this bread - it now goes mouldy very quickly, I routinely throw half the loaf away. It also gets a very peculiar smell after about a day, most odd.

Going Mouldy Far Too Quickly

What has happened to this bread? In recent weeks I've had to throw a lot out as it goes mouldy within a day or two. Am going to look for something else I'm afraid.

Rating: 1 star out of 5

SUGAR one of the main ingredients

I used to love this product. However recently they have made sugar an added ingredient, and not in a small way. It's right up there near the top of the list. Why oh why do they have to add a processed ingredient to something which used to be a health food? It gets worse too in that it's caramelized sugar which is much more harmful - remember the big coke scandal a few years ago. That was caramel based. It's really hard to eat healthily when one of the very few breads which doesn't contain white flour gets sugar added. Totally unnecessary.

Just doesn't last

I have really cut down on bread significantly in the past 5 years. I hardly buy or eat it. When I do, I like it fresh. This never seems to last, even when my kitchen is cold. I buy hovis whole earl for the texture and taste. It is a nice fluffy bread that does not crumble and is great for toasting or sandwich. I got this and the day after shopping it was mouldy, although in date and I was not happy.

annoyingly ,ocado very rarely appear to send out the freshest bread stock , so more often than not bread has short life and goes mouldy before it gets used............so in my case goes to the birds......however this bread is good when fresh.
