    Canned Bread

    Bringing along bread on a tour -- the eating kind -- can be a problem, unless it's in a can. No, it's not nearly as disgusting at it sounds. It's actually pretty good once you get past the weird shape. It's also a bit heavy on the molasses, so if you don't like molasses, it may not be for you. It comes plain variety, as well as a raisin variety. The only place I've seen this stuff for sale is in the Northeast -- Jersey is about as far South as it gets. I bought a dozens cans at my local Shop Rite last fall for $2.85/can. There are net retailers that sell this stuff by the case.

    I've seen it in stores in Indiana and Arizona, as well. Never bothered with it, though.

    When I saw this post I thought this sounded to me like the stupidest thing ever. However, it's available at Amazon.com, and customers seem to like it....

    I can't imagine spending a day on a bike, pedaling past stores and bakeries and cafes, and then settling down at a campsite and opening a can of bread.

    When I was a teen, I used to backpack with my buddies. We'd take a loaf of bread open the top and compress it like an accordion, refasten the top, and pack it. In the days of Wonder Bread that always worked for us.

    X2. I've personally never bruised a bagel on a tour.

    Never tried canned bread, either. Hmmmmm...canned ham=SPAM. Canned bread=SPREAD?

    Sorry, it's one of THOSE mornings...

    I've had that canned bread and it's pretty good. It doesn't have the texture of regular bread, it's more like an English steamed pudding. It tastes a bit like dark squaw bread and it is heavy on the molasses flavor.

    At first I thought the idea of canned bread was a bit disgusting.... then I remember I'm very partial to Heinz canned steamed sponge pudding (hmmm Golden syrup especially). If I see this bread I'll have to try it!

    Yup, it's dense and moist. I use it use it as a base for beans. It's also pretty good with jam, honey or butter.

    for the record, its very similar to soreen, but less malty. lots of sugar.

    I wouldnt call it bread at all. it just happens to be made of flour and stuff.

    Exactly....or if those aren't available carry fresh bread on the bike....sure is a lot less heavy than a can, and I am sorry but I am guessing it would taste better too.

    Doesn't sound practical for touring though, the cans would be heavy, I think more practical would be to simply get on the road and stop at the nearest Tim's to get a muffin and coffee.........

    Meaning I could at least get a loaf of bread at Wal-Mart 1x per day instead of hauling around canned bread.

    I love Brown Bread! That's what we used to call it growing up.

    Not necessarily for touring though, never had a problem with regular bread products.

    yeah, like I said, flour and stuff. Bread involves yeast, and crust and kneading and....

    would that stuff ^ be bread if it was just sitting unmixed and unbaked somewhere?

    I mean, I might toss some in the bomb shelter in case of thermonuclear war or something, but on tour? Where there are options with whole grains and seeds and no corn oil? I dunno

    whatever turns your crank amigo.
