Dave's Killer Bread sent me some bread that I had the opportunity to eat and review. The name says it - This stuff is KILLER! It is great bread.
A little bit about the company and Dave's story:
The company is out to make the most nutritious and delicious bread (and cookies and rolls) out there. They use quality ingredients and don't sacrifice taste. The bread is organic!
The story is pretty inspirational. Dave's father was a baker, and as he grew up he went down the wrong path and turned against his family. Dave starting doing meth, became a drug dealer and spent 15 years in prison for various felonies. After getting some help, reuniting with family, and getting out of jail, Dave cleaned up his act and created his killer bread. The bakery is located in Portland, OR for all of you Portland people out there! The loaves sell for upwards of $5 a loaf at the bakery or around $10 a loaf mail order.
The breads are made with all natural seeds and grains. Click here for the ingredient list. Nothing processed, no sugars. Instead of sugar, Dave uses natural fruit juices! Only the finest healthiest ingredients out there!
I received 2 loaves in the mail: Killer Good Seed Bread - the bestseller and Killer Powerseed Bread. First of all, I love multigrain bread so this was heavenly for me. Both breads were packed with seeds and grains, very moist and delicious! I ate them plain, I used them for toast, I made sandwiches with them, and I made croutons. I love these breads! They are packed with Omega 3s. have average 5g of protein and around 130 calories a slice. 130 may sound high if you are counting calories, but they are big, dense slices. I don't eat that much bread, but if I am going to eat bread, I want it to be delicious - Dave's breads fit the bill. They are healthy and scrumptious!
Definitely the best nutritious all natural clean eating bread that I have had.
+ I really enjoyed this bread. It has tons of nutritious ingredients, Omega 3 (which is great for vegetarians and athletes), and protein. It packs a boost and is great for a sandwich, to dip in soup, toast, or my all time favorite: croutons. The best thing is that it tastes great by itself!
- Boy, do I wish I could find this locally! You are lucky if you live in Oregon. Out here in PA, I'm not sure that I'd spend $10 a mail order loaf even though the bread is really AWESOME. I think I'd have to plan a trip out to the bakery and stock up. If you are even close to Portland, I would definitely check out the bakery or the local farmer's markets. You won't regret it!
