Black Bread

Walking past Bread Top in Melbourne Central... what did I see?
I had to stop, and did a double take. Is that... black bread?

Yup. The laminated sign confirmed it.

I just had to try one, and at just $2, how could I not?

I was nervous, staring at the spookily black roll - would it taste burnt? Was it even real bread? But my adventurous palate was rewarded - they were awesome! It just tasted like regular garlic bread, with a soft interior and crusty outside. Fantastic. After inhaling my roll, we went back inside to buy a couple more for home. You know what they say... once you go black....

  1. Mmmm, garlic bread. That's insane looking.

    Oh and hey, once you go Asian, you never go Caucasian...

  2. LOL!

    I'm in there next week so will have a look. Thanks for tip


  3. Wow, first pretzel and now black've got me craving carbs!
    Promise to try these next time I'm near, sounds intriguing.

  4. i have been eyeing this roll everytime i go past! I'm assuming the flavour is not garlicky though, right?

  5. They're totally garlicky, really yummy.

    The other breadtops don't seem to have them yet, so I have to make my way down to Melb Central again to get my supply

    They're apparently very good for you due to the fibre, I'm told.

  6. I tried the black bread right after I saw the pics that Sandra posted on FB - I had been eyeing it for a while, I was actually expecting it to taste sort of burnt, but it tasted like bread bread - food colouring?

    Anyway I have seen them at all the Breadtops now...I wonder really whether it is good for the digestive season lol

  7. Adri - *totally* high in fibre, trust me. I think the black colour comes from charcoal? I've used black food colouring before, when I made Halloween cupcakes. Kinda scary looking.
