Trader Joe's Multigrain Bread

I liked most things about this bread: The slices are even over the length of the loaf, it tastes good, it toasts nicely.

But one thing that's wrong with it is a dealbreaker: the seeds on the outside (judging from the label, these are poppy seeds, black sesame seeds, and white sesame seeds) fall off so easily that it makes a mess. They fall off on the counter. They fall off in the toaster. They fall off on the plate and table. It's a small annoyance, perhaps, but a persistent one, happening every single time I used a slice or two of this bread.

Will I buy it again? 

No. I don't need another annoyance in my life, even a small one.


  1. Have you tried the Country Style Multigrain bread? That's the one my wife prefers.

  2. No--and I can't remember seeing such a thing in my store. TJ's baked goods are produced by regional bakeries, so there's a lot less uniformity in what's available where than for grocery products. I'll look for it, because it sounds like something I'd like, but I suspect it's not sold in my state.
