Its pretty gross. It works well as a doorstop though.

Check out Kinnikinnick or the Whole Foods Bakery stuff if you have access to them.

Daughter liked one kind only. I believe it was fruit and nut. She spit the others out. My mom tried some and spit them out.

The problem I had with them is the slices are very sticky and crumbly. You buy it frozen and must first defrost it to try to get the slices apart. I tried to pry the frozen slices apart and they just wouldn't go. When I defrosted the loaf, the slices sort of dried out. I was lucky to get 4 usable slices from the loaf. The rest just crumbled up and made a mess.

Daughter likes some of the Ener-G bread. I know a lot of people complain about it. She likes the Rice Starch Loaf, the Thin Sliced Tapioca Loaf and the Corn Loaf. We usually buy the 2 slice packages. Yes, it's expensive this way but she is the only one in the family who eats it and if we buy a loaf, most of it goes to waste anyway because she can't/won't eat it fast enough. She likes it heated in the microwave or toasted. I can't do this when I make a sandwich for her school lunch, but she eats it anyway. Sometimes on the way to dance class, I make her a small sandwich with the warmed Tapioca Loaf, some meat, faux butter and a piece of rice cheese. She likes it so much she wolfs it right down.

We also buy their buns. She likes the Rice and the Seattle Brown. Once again though, it's hard for her to eat the whole package before it goes bad. Yes, there are four buns per package, but she doesn't like to eat the same thing day after day.

Other things she likes are the pizza crusts, some of the cookies, donuts, cinnamon rolls, pound cake, chocolate chip snack bars, crackers and pretzels.

Boy did this bring back memories. This was the only bread we had available for a while and I used to just make my DD's sandwich for school the same way. She always complained it fell to pieces as she ate it. Then I discovered that the bread is parbaked. It has to be microwaved or toasted to finish cooking. I would zap it when I got up and then let it cool to room temp before I made her sandwich or make it the night before and stick it in the frig if the filling needed to be kept cold. It really helps a lot.

If you can find it Kinnickinnick is great. If you can't they do have a website that you could order from.

OP I found the Food for Life bread really gross. Different folks have different tastes though and someone must like it cause they still sell it.
