God dam you bread.
I love the stuff but simultaneously wrestle with it as I somehow have an uncomfortable reaction when I eat it. Well too much of it anyway and carbs really in general. My tummy swells, it’s a disagreeable feeling and I think oh man I should have known better. But how frikkin difficult it is to stay away from, I mean who doesn’t like carbs?!
So of course I jumped for joy when 2sisterspr on behalf of The Polish Bakery contacted me offering to send a goody bag of some of their products to sample. Like hell yeah as if I am ever going to turn down an opportunity to try something I have never eaten before. Yep, I was about to go into foodporn nirvana.
The Polish Bakery is actually the oldest Polish Bakery in the UK, founded in 2003. They use natural ingredients, with no preservatives or additives. What impresses me the most is that they use many authentic Polish ingredients, imported directly from Poland and I quote, “to preserve the genuine Polish taste.”
The goody bag contained the following:
Chia Seed Bread
100% Rye Bread with Prunes
Pen and mug
Have you ever tried Polish bread? I’m not sure about you but being completely honest, prior to being contacted, I didn’t know this existed. I am one of those simpletons who heads to the usual Waitrose Sourdough section and then continue the rest of my shop. I know, creature of habit right? But I now know they do actually stock their products there and in other leading supermarkets so watch out for them!
When you only have two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other
Slightly cautious and wrestling with my carb dilemma, I decided to space out the products, just incase that awkward tummy pain crept in. First on the list was Rye Bread with Prunes. When I see bread containing fruit I get a tad excited, it’s one of my favourites and in my opinion is better toasted. I was surprised, it was light, almost airy and it didn’t even taste like bread, nor like a fruit loaf! There was a slight sweetness and with a slather of butter it was a perfect accompaniment to my cuppa. And the best bit…5 minutes passed, 10 then 30…no tummy pains or uncomfortable bloatedness. Winner.
Next being sampled was Chia Seed Bread, this time I both toasted and made a sandwich with it. Again I was surprised, it was extremely light weight, soft with an almost nutty crust. This is a perfect accompaniment for pretty much any salad, soup, sandwich or breakfast.
Again, no reaction! I think I may be a converted bread addict and although I only sampled three of their products (the cheesecake is to die for!) I can recommend making sure these different types of bread are in your shopping baskets. Go ahead try it!
Thankyou to The Polish Bakery for kindly sending me your awesome goody bag! It will continue to be a staple ingredient in the Nicci household.
The Polish Bakery kindly sent me samples to review, however all opinions, as always, are my own.
So hey you, yes you..I want to thank you for reading my post. Whether you’ve stuck around since the beginning of my journey or whether you’re new to my blog, thank you for reading and supporting. I genuinely appreciate it.
