From healthiest to most delicious, these are the best breads you can order online right now!
In these trying times, there’s one thing everyone in the world wants: bread. Warm, tasty, flakey bread. However, it’s hard to find if you’re not living above a bakery (the dream!). And while you may have purchased a sourdough starter, making your own bread isn’t ideal if you’re a frequent toast muncher or sandwich smasher. You want soft, flakey and tasty bread you can order and have sent to your door. That’s where we come in.
We’ve taste-tested hundreds of breads to deliver the top 5 best breads you can order online right now! Ready?
This is the absolute queen of bread. La Boulangerie has been making amazing pastries and breads for years in San Francisco and recently started selling their best breads online. This one is top notch. Croissant Bread is not quite a regular loaf of bread, not quite a croissant. Somewhere in the middle. It’s flakey and buttery on the outside and soft and flavorful on the inside. What we love most about it is the versatility. It can be used for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Eat it simply as toast or make a powerful sandwich. It’s all good with La Boulangerie! And right now, they’re offering 50% OFF your first order, which was the best deal of any brand we found.
Domaselo offers a great variety of breads at really excellent prices. We put their Country Loaf Sourdough at the top of their breads because it’s ridiculously flavorful and hearty. Even if you think you’re a good baker, we promise you haven’t made a sourdough like this. It’s a great choice for meat, cheeses, and sandwiches. Probably not what you’d choose as your breakfast toast, but hey, we already recommend La Boulangerie for that one!
If you’re looking for the best rye bread available, Angelic gets it done! Thick slices of hearty bread that can make a pastrami sandwich taste like heaven. The secret, sprouted whole grains. Angelic goes all the way with making a fresh tasting, soft, and simple rye bread. And at a low price, it’s worth the taste test for sure!
If you’re looking for gluten-free options, SRSLY takes their bread… well, seriously. Everything they offer is gluten-free and yet still absolutely delicious. Again, we opted for the sour dough, which was really a stand out of their bread options. Our only hesitation is that you can only order in packs of 3, and while it’s an okay price for that, the amount of bread is just too much. I know what you’re thinking, there’s no such thing as too much bread! But 3 loaves just won’t stay fresh long enough. That said, if you have a big family (or a big stomach) you need to SRSLY try this!
You’re probably wondering why we haven’t mentioned a solid white bread loaf on our list. To be honest La Boulangerie’s Croissant Toast kind of takes care of that. It’s so, so versatile. But we did have an honorable mention for white bread, and that’s Atwater’s Country White. A terrific example of classic white bread that doesn’t give you anything but wholesome, country taste. This is what you want your most nostalgic sandwiches placed on. Don’t even get me started with grilled cheese, too! This loaf is a classic you shouldn’t miss out on.
That said, there really is very little competition between La Boulangerie and all other breads. It’s by-far the number one pick. To help give us some more clarity into why, we asked one of our reporters that helped with the list, Stephanie Mason, to give us a little more insight on her first choice.
To be honest, I wasn’t much of a bread eater in the last few years. When you walk down grocery aisles, most of the selection looks bad or just doesn’t seem healthy. And when I went to the bakery, it felt like every time I bought a loaf of bread, the next day it was stale and uneatable.
I had pretty much given up on bread when I visited my friend, who I trust with my life. She made me lunch and served me the most delicious BLT sandwich. I couldn’t get over how fresh and soft the bread was. I couldn’t stop thinking about it, so I asked what bakery she picked it up at. She laughed and told me it was La Boulangerie (like I knew!). That’s when she pulled a bag of Croissant Toast OUT OF THE FREEZER! I couldn’t believe she froze the bread and I thought was baked that day. I was floored. I asked her for the rest of the loaf (LOL) but she told me to order my own. And seeing they were offering 50% off your first order, I DID NOT hesitate.
I received my order in just two days and was so excited to try it out. While I made my first breakfast with it, I learned a little more about the bread…
La Boulangerie uses all non-gmo ingredients, which help keep it’s fresh flavor and as natural as possible.
If you’re concerned about an animal’s well-being as I am, it’s good to know the food you’re eating is using cage-free eggs. It drastically changes the well-being of chickens, and personally, I think it makes for better eggs.
NO ARTIFICIAL PRESERVATIVES
What shocked me the most was that La Boulangerie doesn’t use any artificial preservatives. For how fresh it tasted days after receiving, I was blown away. I don’t know how they do it, but it’s some of the freshest bread I’ve ever eaten.
After a breakfast of french toast, I waited a few hours before digging into the bread again and making myself an avocado sandwich. I truly love how versatile this bread can be. From the flakey croissant to the soft center.
After trying La Boulangerie’s Croissant Toast, I was totally converted into a bread-lover. Whether you are one or not, I definitely recommend this loaf!
