"Famous German" Whole Rye Bread with Muesli

This bread comes from Germany. I think I purchased it for about $2. It's not nearly as large as a regular loaf of bread - but what it lacks in size it makes up for in taste! There are no preservatives added to the bread - but the shelf life is pretty long. A good kind of bread to bring along on a camping trip or picnic.

This bread is dense and full of flavor. The ingredients include: whole kernel rye, water, wholemeal rye, wholemeal wheat, oat flakes, non-sulphurated sultanas, whole hazelnuts, sunflower seeds, linseed, sesame, yeast, salt.

I love this bread! It is best toasted and then spread with a thin layer of margarine/butter. Eat it with a bowl of homemade soup - Yum!

Of course b/c I love it so much - the kids didn't. Ds thought it had a molasses flavor - which it does somewhat. I really like bread that has substance to it - rather than "sandwich bread" of the store bought variety that is almost like glue after chewing it a couple of times.

Aldi sometimes carries a similar bread when they are doing their "German" themed products.

That is the healthiest loaf I have seen so far. I prefer to make my own bread so I can add what I want; however, this bread is an excellent alternative.

When I was in Poland I bought this bread all the time--I was excited to find it when I got home. It is a household favorite.

Hmmm, I wonder if my european grocery has it. I will have to go check (and use it as an excuse to pick up a Kinder Egg while I'm there)
