“The best bread in the universe,” says the website for Dave’s Killer Bread.
The universe is pretty big, but if we confine ourselves to the best packaged whole-grain bread we’ve ever tasted, the website is on to something.
If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you may already know the story: Dave Dahl rejoined the family baking business in 2005, after 15 years in prison.
He soon started baking his own line of organic breads, which he sold at the Portland Farmers Market. Dave’s compelling personal story, and his breads’ knock-your-socks off taste, were an irresistible combo.
The trouble with Dave’s (or anybody’s) bread: two slices can easily top 200 calories and 300 milligrams of sodium…before you put anything inside.
Solution: thin-sliced breads. And none are as nutty and as satisfying as Dave’s Thin-Sliced 21 Whole Grains and Seeds and Thin-Sliced Good Seed, which are now available in stores nationwide. Each slashes the calories and sodium—but not the fresh-from-the-oven taste—by about a third.
Memo to Dave: Ever thought about a line of parolls?
