    I'm not talking artisanal here, but the lovely, chewy, tasty loaves you used to be able to buy everywhere. Where have they gone?

    It's late and my tired eyes read granny bread, then I focused and realised its far from it... the type with bits to get stuck in her dentures... In response no idea but I like a pumpkin and sunflower loaf... Perhaps they have been replaced with 'seeded'.

    You can still get granary bread. We get it often. In fact my sandwiches are made with it today. Maybe it's sometimes called seeded bread. Same thing, though.

    I got a loaf from Tesco the other day. Our baker sells it in a square sandwich loaf but it’s not quite the same.
    Hovis sells about 5 different variations of it now.

    The granary bread I remember was not "seeded" as such.

    There's a lot of bread choice now but most of it is either industrial or amateurish.

    Granary bread is lovely and tasty and chewy. It's been taken over by "seeded" breads, but rhey really aren't the same.

    I like granary bread, but I once cracked a tooth eating a slice. Be careful!

    Hovis, available at some supermarkets, sliced in medium and thick. Keeps well in the freezer to just take out a slice for toast.
