Product Review – Rewe Sandwich Bread

For some reason, when I saw that Rewe were offering their own brand of gluten free products, I wasn’t expecting greatness.  I hoped, as always, that it would surprise me and be good, although I expected disappointment.  But, I may have been burned too many times by buying a new variety of glutenfrei bread, taking it home and discovering it was lacking in many ways, so I thought, what the heck, lets buy some and give it a try!

Now, if this review was a hollywood romantic comedy about falling in love with bread, I’d be saying ‘well, after I tried it I had a huge surprise! it’s actually amazing’, but alas, this is the real world where disappointment exists and the end result was somewhat terrible.

As you can probably tell from the picture, it’s solid, dry, has an air of staleness and is very prone to crumble into dust.  Plus, the slices themselves are rather tiny.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I love the fact that Rewe is accommodating us gluten afflicted, they ARE making an effort and their range is pretty good.  I just wish it was something better and not more of the same.

In conclusion, I cannot recommend it.

  1. Hi! I haven’t tried this product, but I tried some cake convenience blend and the Baguette and thought they were reeeeeaaaally nice!

  2. You need to but it into the toaster – not dry at all – best gluten free bread you can buy in a supermarket if you ask me 😉

  3. While trying to eat it with Rewe cheese & ham gives you a moment straight out of Spinal Tap, it’s actually okay if you stick it in the microwave for about 20 or 30 seconds first. The Rewe baguettes are very nice though, one of the best around (again, it needs a minute in the microwave if you don’t want to bake it for 10 minutes first) although the ciabatta is best avoided as it smells and tastes like old socks.
