There’s two golden tickets in our Molloy’s Bread!

National Bread Week is back for another year and will take place from 9th -15th of October. Molloy’s Bakery are huge supporters of this event and will be joining in the celebrations with promotions, special offers and tastings in their shop in Abbeytown.

  The focus of Bread Week is for everyone to ‘Love Your Loaf’ and celebrates all that is great about Irish bread. Molloy’s have been baking bread since 1922 and Declan is a passionate baker. This week he visited Aisling McNeill’s class at Scoil Mhuire in Roscommon educating the children on baking and all that is good about bread. On Thursday he will attend the official launch of Bread Week in Dublin and more school talks are in the pipeline. 

  Unfortunately the poor old loaf gets a lot of bad press but we are here with the help of Dr. Mary McCreery to dispel some of the myths associated with it. 

  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. 

  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 is brain food. The brain’s preferred fuel is glucose, which comes from the metabolism of carbohydrates in the diet. Bread is a brain food as not only does it provide carbohydrate but also a range of B Vitamins, which are believed to play a crucial role in a healthy functioning brain.

  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. Molloy’s Bakery will be offering a variety of tastings during Bread Week in conjunction with their ‘Find the Golden Ticket’ competition. They have created two golden tickets, which will be put in two loaves of bread. The loaves could be in their shop or any of their local suppliers. So if you see a Molloy’s loaf of bread in your local store it could be you! You could win a year’s supply of bread (that’s one loaf of bread every Saturday for a whole year), plus 6 tea/coffee and scone vouchers and a 15% discount of any cakes you order within the year. Once you find the ticket give them a call and they will arrange your prize. Terms and conditions apply.  Keep up to date with all their offers on facebook/molloys.bakery. 

Good luck, love, the Molloy’s Team!
