Based on the strength of the last Pepperidge Farm bread we tried, Cristy bought this one. Just about the definition of cardboard bread. Massively stale. As I was sampling it, I noticed the best by date on the package was a full 17 days before the date of purchase, which gave me such a shock that when I went to get some water to wash down this abomination I choked and stood at the sink wheezing for a solid minute. I'm not making this up. Smith's is selling extremely old bread at full price. Unforgivable.
