The other day my mom sent me on a grocery run. Her list consisted of bread, fruits, and cheese. On my way through the bread aisle, I found out that the grocery store had Dempster's Garden Vegetable Bread on sale ($0.80 off!). I decided that since my mom didn't specify which bread to buy that I would give this one a shot.
I'm always looking for ways to add vegetables into my diet and this bread is made with carrots and pumpkins (along with the standard flour, salt, vegetable oil, etc.) and claims to have a 1/2 serving of vegetables in 2 slices.
The first thing that I noticed about this bread is that the loaf is smaller than my regular whole wheat bread (if I had to guess I'd say a good 4 or 5 slices less). The bread itself has an almost orange appearance with little orange flecks (no doubt from the carrot and pumpkin). The texture was softer than the usual whole wheat bread that I normally purchase and the taste was slightly sweet and very slightly spicy, but I didn't really notice any taste of carrot or pumpkin.
I haven't tried this bread toasted yet, but I find that it makes really great sandwiches. I usually put mayo on one slice, horseradish mustard on the other side, some type of sandwich meat, cheese and lettuce. Both of my sisters and I love sandwiches made with this bread.
I find the original purchase price of this bread a little steep for the amount of bread that you actually get, but I would purchase this bread again if it were on sale -- the grocery stores around my house seem to usually have this bread on sale anyways, last week I purchased two more loaves at 2 for $5.
This bread is great if you are trying to add additional veggies into your diet, but really shouldn't be your main source of vegetables (unless you're planning on eating a loaf or two a day).
