Great bread and the USA haven’t always held hands – a sentiment brought home by Julia Child’s famous quote, “How can a nation be great if its bread tastes like Kleenex?” Julia was talking about the type of white bread USA baby boomers grew up eating. You know, the kind you would have to pry off the roof of your mouth with your tongue or, possibly, dig out with your finger. THAT kind!

Simply SatedWould you sing for your supper if it consisted of only white bread and butter? Well, if there is any truth to the nursery rhyme of old, poor Little Tommy Tucker sure did.

 “Little Tommy Tucker

Sings for his supper.

What shall he eat?

White bread and butter.”

I’m pretty sure Julia would have gone on a hunger strike before squeaking out any tune for Kleenex-style white bread. I know I wouldn’t sing for my supper and definitely not for my breakfast if the prize were plain old white bread. But, for a platter full of Berry-Topped French Toast Bagels made with Cobblestone Bread Co. Original Bagels, hand me a microphone and I’ll belt out “Girl On Fire” on a par with Alicia Keys.
