Extra Special Loaves from Warburtons.

Warburtons are very nice to their bloggers, and I have to say I felt a bit spoilt when a hamper arrived the other day full of interesting goodies so that we could try their new range of four Extra Special Loaves.

The Special Loaves are available in four varieties -

Malted Grain & Seeds is my favourite. A really nice bread with good grains and seeds - no sticks or huge chewy bits. It's really light and makes gorgeous toast. 

Wholegrain & Oat is my partner's favourite. Although tasty, it doesn't overpower your filling, and is a lighter bread than the Honey Wheat.

Honey Wheat has a hint of honey sweetness and has a rich, full taste of it's own. It's a really quite heavy bread. It suits mature cheese and pickle perfectly, but likewise makes great jammy toast.

Old English White is a yeasty Farmhouse style white loaf, still with a soft crust, but a stronger flavour more like home-made bread.

My partner likes them all, but says that for Sunday breakfast none of them beat bacon and maple syrup on a Warburton's crumpet!

Warburton's new Extra Special Loaves are coming to a supermarket near you and make a really nice and tasty change from regular white or wholemeal bread. They're already on sale in Ocado online at £1.39 for a 400g loaf.

Warburtons regularly have special offers and promotions, right now you can get your hands on free cinema tickets - to keep up with the action on their Facebook page.


  1. Oh I am so jealous! We love Warburtons especially their Thins but I think I could be swayed by one of those oaty seedy loaves. They look so thick sliced too, yummy! x

    1. They are nice and thick - that's part of the reason I showed them as toast, they're all perfect for it :)

  2. I do love Warburtons breads and the thins - that crumpet looks scrumptious!

    1. The maple syrup and bacon crumpet is one of my partner's most favourite Sunday breakfasts :)

  3. Had not seen them before. They look so yummy!

  4. Bacon and maple syrup on a crumpet. I'm hungry now!

  5. Scrummy, they sound great. I have never though of having bacon and syrup on top of a crumpet but will have to give that a try!

  6. I grew up on Warburtons bread and still eat it now at 44!mI'm not one for bits in bread but I have to say the malted grain and seeds loaf is gorgeous, it makes a fantastic sandwich with premium ham and fancy lettuce with a good pickle, it doesn't overpower any flavour rather compliments it with subtle nuttiness and I love the linseed in it. It does also make a good crisp toast yummy with butter and set honey. Yet to try the rest of the range but plab on the white for bacon sarnie on Christmas Day morning :-D

  7. I spotted these in Sainsburys yesterday. Wish I'd grabbed one now. Will have to look out for them again x
