Grandma Sycamore bread

Every time I go to Utah I am required by matrimonial law to bring home a suitcase of the “good bread”. Only available in Utah and not available to order (as far as I know) Grandma Sycamore bread is truly the bread of the gods. We will be eating this stuff in heaven. Thick, white and wonderful, it makes the best cinnamon toast ever! People in Utah just don’t understand how good they have it!

I always know we’re low on bread when Joey suggests that I go visit my family. Ya, I don’t really think he cares if I visit my family, he just wants his bread. Usually I can get six loafs in a carry on suitcase. Those six loafs are rationed and used sparingly. Not for use with your average weekday lunch when you might be rushed, the bread is usually saved for weekends and special occasions when it can be savored and enjoyed.

So when the flight attendant wanted to check my carryon under the plane yesterday I had to kindly explain that this was not an option as I had a suitcase full of bread for my husband. All I have to say is that I’m a really good wife!

    Okay, now I know we are kindred spirits - we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that bread! Especially used for french toast - ahhh, just the thought makes my mouth water. Another thing I miss about Utah. I’m going to seriously scarf some of that down when we visit this month.

    I totally know what you are talking about here. When we lived in Seattle it was the thing we missed most! We also brought a ton of loaves home whenever we would visit! Best bread ever!

    Maybe I should be into the bread export business since I live here. I like the stuff too, but I am not sure I would make an extra effort to get some. I hope you enjoy every last bite of it. The next time you and Joey come to Orem, let me know and I will cook you an amazing breakfast with some Grandma Sycamore’s bread as the main entre. =)

    What can I say but you’re “preaching to the choir.” Everytime I call my parents Jon always tells me to get them to mail us some of that bread. It is Jon’s absolute favorite! I just have to let you know that this post left me laughing hysterically!

    All I can say is that SunSparc may need some professional attention. And Grandma Sycamore needs to start producing that stuff outside of Utah. Considering the amount of that bread that I can go through it would make sense for them to open a bakery in my little town of 5,000 people, even if I’m the only customer! And by the way, I’ll be in Utah next week. I’ll be back to my Bowflex the week after that!

    just wanted to send an fyi….
    we love the bread too, but just discovered a SaraLee stamp on the label and the ingredient list has changed…. so you may be able to get the bread label outside utah now… but not the same bread. This is much to our horror since we love the bread, and it had been the only bread we had found without soy ingredients… until SaraLee…..I want to start a petition!
