Choosing the right bread for toast can make quite a difference I find. We all know what the cheapest quality, thinly sliced, white loaf toast tastes like and we have all had toast made from better bread. I know I’ve noticed the difference. I’d never thought about using bread especially created to use as toast before though, but Kingsmill sent us some to try. The New Kingsmill Super Toasty is a brand new toasting loaf with a special recipe that been formulated to give the ‘best ever toast’ experience. Its recipe features a specially selected blend of flours and the baked loaf is thickly sliced, which means that your toast can be crispy on the outside and soft and pillowy on the inside.
So what did we think? It certainly delivered on the taste side. It was the best toast I’ve had from a commercially produced loaf. If you eat a lot of toast (and I think a lot of families do because it’s so convenient), it’s well worth trying out.
Kingsmill also asked us to try out another new product: Kingsmill Toasties. These are so, so easy. You simply put them in the toaster – I find that they need a shorter setting than if you are actually making toast because all you need to do is warm them through really. We have been loving these. They are the easiest hot breakfast to make. They have a lightly toasted outside and inside they are soft and doughy, plus they are fruity too. I can certainly see us buying these again, in fact I don’t think I’ll have much choice as H was very keen. I found them perfect for a school morning and they add a bit of variety in sometimes dull breakfast fare. It’s nice on a cold wintry morning to be able to send H out of the house with something warm inside him that hasn’t taken an age to prepare.
