One of the things I love about the Island...

... its news. See this story on CBC PEI (one of the day's top three stories, at that).

I especially love the quotation from Mrs. Wagner in the third sentence.

Poor little loaf. It's stood the test of time, that's for sure.

Now that I'm looking at the article again, I'm finding even funnier things. Like they quoted the price as being $1.59. Who remembers the price of bread they bought last year? I've actually never heard of Golden Break bread...

Oh well, at least a bread story varies from the usual PEI news which my grampie Glover described as always being just about "fish and potatoes".

Hmmmmm it seems like my demon bread has escaped and made it's way over to Canada!

In answer to Marie Parry though I can say exactly what she's got in there. It's the holy grail of preservatives of course! I was pretty sure that eating that stuff would have made me live forever...

I too have toyed with the idea that eating perservatives should, effectively, perserve me. I'm not dead yet, so the theory hasn't been disproved.

I had given up buying bread because it always goes mouldy on me quickly. The last loaf I bought lasted about 3 days, even when wrapped tightly. I'm clearly buying the wrong bread. Or maybe I'm mouldy and it's spreading to the bread ;)
