Molloy’s Golden Tickets!

Forget Willy Wonka, it was all about the Molloy’s Golden Tickets recently. As part of National Bread Week, Molloy’s (Abbeytown, Roscommon) ran a competition to find two golden tickets hidden in our bread on sale both in our bakery and through over 20 stores we supply locally.

  The tickets were found and claimed by Alannah Sutton and Pam Stocker, who both won a year’s supply of bread, tea & coffee vouchers and a year’s discount on cake orders. 

  The aim of National Bread Week, now in its second year, is for everyone to ‘Love Your Loaf’ and celebrates all that is great about Irish bread. Unfortunately the poor old loaf gets a lot of bad press but we can dispel some of the myths associated with it.

  Bread does not contain any nutrients – not true. Contrary to popular belief, bread is good for us… providing protein, folic acid and many nutrients such as dietary fibre, vitamins and minerals.

  Bread causes bloating – not true. Although bread, and in particular the way some modern bread is made, is often accused of causing bloating, that’s not the case. A review of the topic by the British Nutrition Foundation concluded that there is no scientific evidence that regular consumption of bread causes bloating or digestive problems. 

  There are so many ways to buy and enjoy bread as part of a healthy balanced diet – top it, toast it, wrap it, butter it… the choice is yours, but with bread you need never be bored.

  Call into us in Abbeytown and choose from our large selection of breads. We have something for everyone. Gluten-free, Spelt, wholewheat and of course the traditional soda, not forgetting our Guinness and Walnut loaf too! We will soon be launching a new selection of sourdough breads.

  Now that Halloween is over we are gearing up for Christmas and have started making our award-winning Christmas Puddings. Keep an eye on our facebook page for future competitions and new product announcements (see Facebook/molloys.bakery).

  Thank you to all our customers from the Molloy’s team.
