In store from the Tesco Bakery - I know it is only 20% bigger than normal but it looks HUGE and smells great. Not sure if it's online as well.

it freezes very well, we buy 3 on saturday and it lasts us all week, I have half a loave in the breadbin that came out of the freezer thursday morning and it is still as fresh as last saturday..

25% bigger than normal.

What exactly is a tiger loaf? I have seen them but never bought them?

Its like a flavoured glaze they put on the bread as it bakes, gives it a lovely flavour! I highly recommend that you try it!

hot!

Oops - so it is!

"£1 @tesco.com" would look good in the thread title

if it's the one with the cheese like topping, it's flippin horrid.

Personal opinion of course.

No it's a sesame oil coating they put on it. It's grt tastiest bread there is:)

I think the coating is a rice paste, but yes seasame oil is the oil used in tiger bread.

Tiger bread is made with sesame oil and with a pattern baked into the top … Tiger bread is made with sesame oil and with a pattern baked into the top made by painting rice paste onto the surface prior to baking. The paste dries and cracks during the baking process, creating a two-colour effect similar to a tiger's markings, hence the name. The rice paste crust also gives the bread a distinctive flavour. It has a crusty exterior, but is soft inside. Typically, Tiger bread is made as a white bread bloomer loaf or bread roll, but the technique can be applied to any shape of loaf: Some bakeries call their rolls Tiger paws, and their Baguettes Tiger's tails

I thought Tiger's had stripes. Anyway, thanks for your post, I'm off to Sainbury's to hunt one down.

I don't go to Tesco much now as most their instore staff are unhelpful and often rude. I find Sainbury's staff polite and happy to help. Healthier too.

maybe its because you go in there with a chip on your shoulder, the staff in Tesco are fine with everyone else.

Come to ASDA, it's the future.

And we are all friendly I promise :-p Saying that, I've never met anyone working in any supermarket who has been rude to me!

It's still a deal... Just a deal that happens every week.

"lol"

Absolutely love tiger loaf and Tesco is by far the best

Its hair splitting time The Sainsburys loaf works out to be the better deal if you do the maths !
Sorry,I'm having a sad moment !

Good point! voted cold.

This bread is so nice

My wife insists that Asda's tiger loaf is best and they will slice it for you if you want. I'm not going to argue with her. ;-)

Have to agree with your other half, Asda tiger bread seems to be the best one, then tesco, sainsburys, morrisons and so on.. lol:p

sainsbury's cheaper so cold from me.

Yes but Sainsbury's is the worst tasting. me and the missus love this bread and we have tried at every store near us. Our ranking would be:

Asda, Tesco, Morrisions, Sainsburys

Morrisons even do Tiger roll's now as well, they are great and I take em for me pack up every day...tasty

Agree that it's not really a deal.
Can't believe how hot this is, it's a loaf of bread.
Disagree that it freezes well, no bread does and i never freeze bakery products, do as the French do and buy fresh daily.
Bread that has been frozen is only good for the toaster.

they are called Tiger paws, delicious. ps the 73p bread featured is the smaller one, not the large one on offer.

The 73p one is 800 grams, so that is just over 9p per 100grams. This £1 one on offer is 1000 grams, 10p per 100 grams.

The picture of the Tiger Bread from Sainsbury's is two years old!! :?
Actual price of Sainsbury's 800g Tiger Bread is £1.09

I also vote that this bread is yummy! Mmmmm i want some now!

Life's to short to have a chip on one's shoulder! I think the staff at my local Tes are proberly stressed out and over worked. Do you work for Tesco?
