I don't think it's that bad an offer actually, and I'm just off there (that's why I'm looking)... Cheers to the OP.

It's normally around £1.30ish. Bread tastes good. Hot. Though price still needs to go further down.

PS: normally if you go into the stores around 7:30ish 8pm - depending on stock & the best before date, they are normally reduced to half price.

Can't believe how much people spend on bread. On that basis not voting either way

This is a good price for this loaf. It lasts well and stays fresh for the kids sandwiches. Other brands including supermarkets own, just seems to go stale very quickly..................Thanks op.

You get it at special rates then?

1.5Kg Tesco bread flour for 48p and you can make three loaves from with water and some yeast (5p per loaf for the yeast). Also about 1hr in a hot oven (220C) which should be about 10p in electricity or even less for gas.

Tastes much better too!

A handful of wheat can be picked up for free if you hang around the road near field entrances when they are harvesting it, you can then grow it on for nearly nothing in your garden (or big pots) until you have enough; then hand grind it on a stone quern - if you let it ferment naturally, the yeast can be done away with altogether. I like a little salt in bread, but seeing I live in the Midlands, and can't quarry it on my own property, or have salt pans near the coast, so I would still have to buy that.

Your figures are also flawed - 3x 800g loaves out of 1.5kg of flour might well be possible, but that's not taking into account the waste in cutting, and the size of the slices as it rises less evenly and less overall meaning you won't get the same "use" out of it either.

Come on, what next? Make your own silicon chips to build a computer? How about not buying anything because you can grow/make/quarry your own? This site is suddenly obsolete, we will be too busy breaking rocks and digging fields to buy anything.

That said, lets be serious now.

I make bread myself, occasionally but if it is not for special reasons, it is a major drag, takes many HOURS, (the longer the better as quick raised bread tastes of very little!) and the end result goes stale - EXTREMELY stale in a matter of a few hours too, or fills up a freezer negating much of the cost benefit. Bread machines work, but still not as good as the real, hand made loaf - it has other drawbacks too. Home made bread is nice when there is time and inclination (I am disabled and making bread is something I need to be up to doing it at the time) but it is at the wrong end of the scale when considering the savings you can make by cooking your own food. Probably the reason why organised baking is one of the FIRST human activities that was carried out centrally in ancient civilisations - people must have recognised even then the benefit of having bread made for you! - LOTS of food can be made from scratch very quickly at a fraction of the price of shop-bought and processed food, producing easy quick and big savings; but bread is NOT one of them :-(

just freeze the bread when you buy it and will stay good for a couple of months. just take it out 10 mins before you need it.

and NEVER put bread in the fridge. Makes it go stale quicker.

Thats rubbish talk, I make bread every day and one bag is plenty enough for three loaves.
Sure they won't be the same industrial precise shape of Hovis but not then again not the
same industrial heavily processed taste either.

What's this waste thing you're talking about? True you don't need yeast, I use sourdough which is even better and cheaper in the end (sure needs a bit more work to get going)

Bread is probably the easiest thing you can cook. Takes about 15 minutes of actual work and then it's all rising and cooking time where you don't have to do a single thing.

That's why it was one of the first "organized" things to be done, it's so easy...
Don't go comparing making bread with making silicon chips.... It's just bread, you don't need a PhD, or access to a lab, to do it.

Don't know why your bread goes stale so quickly, mine is nice and soft even after 2 days and if toasted lasts for at least a week.
