The Broas

Canned biscuits? Not very appealing to me. They are packed in large squares tin cans. The same can use to contain bulk cooking oils and instrument to roughly measure harvested coffee beans. The popular container for hauling and holding water. Never usually last long as they are very prone to rusting.

Continuing with the story. The said canned biscuits was popular in wakes. Usually partnered with black brewed coffee. Contents come in assortment of flavors, colours, textures and shapes.

Speaking of flavors, it is natural that some are better than others. Superior shapes are eaten faster. There are awful, no one dares getting more after the first bite.They are left on table and are thrown to dump eventually.

Bulk canned biscuit is not my thing because of the above mentioned reasons. So when I saw those large round cans labeled Broas. I never dared test. I had the impression it was the bread I hated.

Thanks to the sponsor. I got to see and taste the bread inside the can. The appearance resembles an oversized sausage cut in longitudinal passion. It was a crunchy soft bread. Color ranges from very light brown to dark. I am guessing the dark color are burnt due to uneven frying. If I were the buyer and able to see the contents beforehand. I won’t choose this one.


Now, to be fair. The bread is delicious. It gonna attract more buyers with improved packing and label.
