Picture this: Instead of pulling out a slice of bread from a loaf in a plastic bag, you pull your bread out of a can, then cut it yourself.
Yeah… it’s a thing and it has been a thing for a minute…
This was the reality starting in the late 1920s, especially in New England, where people just loved to eat B&M Brown Bread in a can.
Now, the year is 2020 and you can easily pick up a loaf of bread from the store.
And yet, this canned bread is making a comeback.
Here’s what it looks like:
Pretty interesting, right? But as we’ve seen more “bake this cake in a cup” recipes, this shouldn’t be all that surprising.
Yes, people are feeling nostalgic for little creature comforts that remind them of their past.
It can be a little dry, but otherwise it tastes delicious!
And hey, since it’s in a can, it does keep for much longer than regular bread in the pantry!
Yum, yum, yum, doesn’t that look appetizing?
If you said “no,” well, we respectfully disagree.
Of course, you can always make your own canned bread. Some people call it “coffee can bread.”
Hey, whether you like canned bread or not, there must be a reason why it’s still in production today! Somebody’s buying it.
Will you be grabbing a few extra cans of bread the next time you hit up the store? Why or why not? We’d love to hear from you!
