Review: Arnold Soft Naturals Honey Wheat Bread

With three carb-loving children in the house, I cannot tell you how much sliced bread we go through. Because our children are a little on the picky side and will only eat a small variety of sandwiches, I think they get a little bored just alternating between peanut butter and turkey with cheese for lunch week after week.

Well, it had not occurred to me until recently that I could add some variety to their lunchtime sandwiches by changing what type of bread we serve. There are so many other kinds of sliced breads available other than the same old wheat or white sandwich bread we normally buy. That is why I welcomed the chance to try the new Arnold Soft Naturals Honey Wheat Bread. I was very curious as to whether my children would be receptive to this change.

What my family and I thought about the Arnold Soft Naturals Bread:

1) I think it is safe to say that every single member of the family was impressed by how soft and pillowy this bread is. It is hard to imagine it ever going stale.

2) My main concern about the Honey Wheat variety was that it may be too sweet tasting. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the honey flavor was very subtle. My 5yr old son said that he could not taste the honey, but he just thought this bread tasted better than regular wheat bread.

3) This honey wheat bread tastes extremely good with both peanut butter and savory luncheon meats . . . two of my children's favorite things to eat for lunch.

4) It's great that this 100% natural bread contains 0g of trans fat, no high fructose corn syrup, is a good source of fiber, and is cholesterol-free. In the end, all those things do not matter if the bread does not past the taste test. In this case, it did with flying colors.

Arnold really hit the nail on the head with this one. Our children ate the new Honey Wheat Bread without protest and they do not even know that it's good for them. I don't intend to tell them either. Why risk it ruining a good thing, right?
