Manna Organic Bread + Giveaway!

The winner is Christina @calmond! 
Check you email for details on how to get your bread!

I was recently contacted by the kind folks at Manna Organics about trying out their bread. Do I ever say no to bread? No. No I don't. So they shipped me four different loafs of their bread to try out. I really enjoy trying new products and am thrilled to tell others about products when I have the opportunity. Do you even know how excited I was?
Haven't heard of Manna? Here's a little info...

(Disclaimer: though the company sent me free product, I did not receive monetary compensation for this review, nor am I under obligation to provide a review.)

I sampled 3 different sprouted breads and 1 sourdough. Carrot Raisin Sprouted Bread, Fig Fennel Flax Sprouted Bread, Sunseed Sprouted Bread, and Multigrain Flax Sourdough Bread.

Carrot Raisin
Fig Fennel Flax
Multigrain Flax Sourdough

The sprouted breads were just as the website describes- super moist and cake like. My absolute favorite were the carrot raisin and fig fennel flax. Biting into the carrot raisin was like eating carrot cake- with big, sweet, chewy bites of raisins and shredded carrots spread throughout. Perfect for breakfast and much healthier than having cake in the morning. The fig fennel flax has delicious pieces of fig which are a really interesting compliment to the fennel seeds, which you can taste but are not overwhelming. I especially loved that the top of this loaf is covered with a crunchy crust of pumpkin, poppy, sesame and sunflower seeds. I can definitely see these 2 breads becoming the star at brunch tables everywhere.
The sunseed was good, but not my favorite. The taste of caraway seeds made me want to spread on some dijon mustard or have a side of garlic dill pickles, but maybe that's just me!

Sourdough lovers- run, don't walk, to pick up a loaf of this artisian sourdough bread! For me it was a little too "soury" but I think it would make a really awesome tempeh rueben sandwich with tons of sauerkraut.

The breads are pretty dense so I could only eat a little bit in one sitting, but I really enjoyed tasting them.

Would you like to taste some? Well guess what? Manna Organics wants to send you bread too!
