    Bread preservation methodology

    How could so many basic supermarket breads taste so bad? I'd understand if it was just dry or not sweet or if it's sourdough or some weirdly seasoned or seeded bread, but my latest is a soft whole wheat bread that has some kind of mysterious bad taste and smell. And it's not mold. I'll probably throw the rest out.

    That doesn't even look like bread, to be honest.

    Does your town have any kind of Little Italy? You might want to buy your bread from a local baker there.

    I just buy a loaf of locally made french bread from the supermarket deli. It's way better than the nationally mass produced stuff.

    I don't know what you're buying but that's not bread. Go to nearly any bakery and you'll get a product that's actually edible.

    This is my regular bread. It had a good date today so I bought it.



    I am but one man, mighty as I may be, and I can't always finish a loaf of fresh bakery bread before it gets moldy. My old bread was made locally but sometimes it tasted moldy the day I bought it and once it had some kind of inedible fiber in it.

    I eat bread made by machines in a big factory somewhere like someone living in the 21st century.

    Most brown breads in supermarkets are usually fake. If you read the ingredients you'll often see it's made with regular flour and some shit is added to darken it.

    Luckily for me I'm not much of a bread snob.

    Pro tip: Avoid buying anything that already has a discernible level of condensation in the package.

    Many brown breads are supposedly dyed with caramel.

    Have you ever heard of a refrigerator?

    That's where I keep it, in a VINTAGE Tupperware Bread Keeper in the fridge but for whatever reason it sometimes tastes moldy within a day or two. The big factories know what they're doing even with no preservatives.
