Try saying that 5 times quickly! I recently scored a free loaf of the Stonemill Bakehouse bread courtesy of a coupon from a fellow colleague of mine. Prior to receiving the coupon, I had never even heard of Stonemill Bakehouse before so I was interested in trying it out and having a coupon for a free loaf certainly helps. Going to my local Loblaws, I was surprised to see that there were many different varieties to choose from. We opted for the Grains and Honey bread since we’ve had similar breads made by other companies so it would give us a chance to do a quick comparison for thingsthatwedo.com.
Product Review: Stonemill Bakehouse bread with 11 Whole Grains
I went on to the Stonemill Bakehouse website and discovered more information about their breads. Turns out the Grains and Honey bread that I got is designed to be low in fat, has a high source of fibre, it’s low in sodium, doesn’t have any additive and preservatives, and has no added fat, sugar, dairy, or soy. Of course, since there are no artificial additives or preservatives, it is recommended that you stick that loaf of Stonemill Bakehouse bread in the refrigerator after you purchase it.
On the surface, just by reading the ingredients (11 whole grains!), the Stonemill Bakehouse bread sounds like it would be a great addition to our family’s food roster. I decided to toast a few slices for breakfast.
So, now you’re wondering what I’ll say about the taste and texture of the Stonemill Bakehouse bread and well, I’m not quite sure what to tell you. It certainly doesn’t taste like any of the other breads I’ve ever had before. It doesn’t taste like a bagel or a pita or an English muffin and it certainly doesn’t taste like any of the other sliced breads I’ve ever had before. Toasted, my Stonemill Bakehouse bread with grains and honey had a very crisp and crunchy texture but it was so light and airy that it actually didn’t seem to have a taste! I feel as though I just bit into it, chewed, and it disappeared. I ate my 2 slices of bread with a bit of cream cheese and jam and didn’t feel hungry or satiated. I couldn’t even tell if I had eaten them or not since they didn’t seem to make a dent in my stomach. The slices seem more thinly cut and the bread feels lighter in my hands. I got hungry earlier than I usually do, which was unexpected.
Thus, I’m left wondering if this is the right bread for our family. We’ve eaten fresh loaves of bread before that have a certain chew and texture to them that leave you satisfied and happy. I’ve had fresh pitas and more basic loaves of bread and there is something about them that tells your body that you’ve eaten bread and you feel satisfied. Now, of course, this lack of feeling anything with the Stonemill Bakehouse bread is most likely due to how simple the ingredients are that go into its bread. Without any added fat, sugar, dairy, or soy, you would expect this to be a lighter bread and I think it’s a great option for families to have. For my family, this Stonemill Bakehouse bread seems a little too insubstantial for the morning hustle and bustle. However, toasted and cut, this bread may be a great accompaniment to dips on the appetizer tables because they have a nice light and airy crunch that would go well with various dips.
This Stonemill Bakehouse bread has its merit and I appreciate its quality and philosophy. I like that families have an alternative to the more mainstream bread brands and can choose something that will fit their lifestyle. Currently, our family is in to the fresh loaves of bread that have yet to be sliced so we can make thick cut French toast on the weekends. We’ve been eating pita and bagels and everything else in between and for now, this Stonemill Bakehouse bread may pale in comparison. I like what the Stonemill Bakehouse bread stands for even if it’s not for my family at this time but would certainly let others know of it so that they can try it out for themselves.
