In Which the Supermarket Bakery Steps Up its Game…

Just a quick post!  For most people, the only breads you can get at your average, ordinary supermarket are standard-issue loaves of mass-produced Pullman or “tasty” loaves of cottony white sandwich bread or buns.  Of late, however, supermarkets have been offering better bread choices for customers: the sort that surpass standard-issue loaves in terms of both taste, appearance, and value.

SM Supermarkets, in particular, have begun to offer what the counter-staff refer to as artisan rolls: a selection of filled, shaped breads in assorted flavors.  The Irish Crown, a savory bun made with wheat germ, candied walnuts, and blue cheese is one such example.  They have other savory rolls and sweet buns as well.
