Personally, I have never been one to eat the ass of a loaf of bread (the two end pieces) as it's just a giant piece of crust.

but, I met someone the other day who LOVES the ass of the loaf, they eat the entire loaf with anticipation of a sandwhich made of the two end pieces, as if it were some prize for consuming all the regular middle part.

I allways assumed that the ass of the loaf was for the ducks, and other wildlife.....


do YOU eat the ASS? ;)

my mom used to work at the Film Board of Canada or something...and her office was right near a big ottawa bakery.

someone from the dept would go down and actually buy a bag of loaf asses because they all loved them so much.

they used to clamour for the loaf ass so much, that they needed to just cut out the middle man and start buying strictly loaf asses!

isnt that completely ridiculous?

for me, the ass is just a sign that its time to buy more bread.

i appreciate your culinary sensibilities. :)

it's always as fight at my place to see who'll get the ass of the loaf. i never understood why people didn't like the crust on their bread -- especially loaf-asses. i mean, it's like those chocolate chip cookies -- crunchy on the outside, chewy in the middle. you don't want only chewy all the time, right? but every once in a while you definitely want that crunch!

so, yeah man, i eat the shit that tastes like ass.... i mean the loaf-ass.

:p

Crustless Bread

Sara Lee Hawks Crustless Bread
Fri May 3, 5:37 PM ET
By DAVE CARPENTER, AP Business Writer

CHICAGO (AP) - Look ma, no crusts.


Sara Lee wants to take over a duty moms have carried out for kids for decades — slicing the crusts off white bread. The consumer goods giant is touting its new IronKids Crustless Bread as a fresh-from-the-oven idea, coming soon to a bakery shelf near you.

The product, being introduced at the supermarket industry's annual convention in Chicago starting this weekend, will be a bit of an upper-crust loaf. Sara Lee is selling it for about 75 cents more than the price of crusted bread, or $2.59 to $3.39 for a 16-ounce loaf, depending on the market.

In an era when convenience tops U.S. shopping lists, Sara Lee figures enough consumers will turn over the extra dough. It's spending nearly $10 million to roll it out, making it the bakery group's biggest product launch yet.

The crustless target group: families with children under age 12.

"Is everyone going to pay for it? No," says Matt Hall of the St. Louis-based Sara Lee Bakery Group. "But convenience and simplicity are important consumer needs right now. Consumers told us they'd be willing to pay a premium for this product. Twenty years ago, they probably wouldn't have paid for it."

Might that change have something to do with Americans loafing more and preparing food less?

Not exactly, according to Sara Lee. Hall cited more prosperous times and increased daily stress as the key ingredients.

Market research suggests this is no half-baked idea.

The fastest-growing area of the $5.6 billion bread industry is the super-premium segment, encompassing everything from French-style to roasted garlic to rosemary and olive oil bread and beyond. Also, a similar product that Sara Lee introduced in Spain in 1999 has generated stellar sales.

Besides, even Krusty the Clown knows little kids don't like bread crusts — a knowledge Smuckers acted on recently when it introduced the crustless peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich.

Sara Lee acquired IronKids — a leading brand of white bread for the past decade that advertises itself as having the fiber of whole-wheat bread — last year when it bought Earthgrains. The deal made the company the nation's second-biggest fresh bread maker.

Crustless Bread is made at its bakery in Paris, Texas, where crusts are removed by an automated slicer. Baking pans are larger and cooling time is twice as long as normal in the "decrusting room." The rejected crusts are used for croutons, bread crumbs and other products.

The product already is available in southern states, the Midwest and Arizona and will be stocked by July throughout Sara Lee's fresh-bread system, which covers all U.S. regions but the Northeast and Florida.

Food industry experts think the bread has a chance to rise.

"Almost any way you can successfully innovate yourself from a private label makes sense," says analyst John McMillin of Prudential Securities.

"This isn't rocket science — but it's a good idea."
