Both of my parents were born before/during the war so they grew up during the hard times. My mom is also a retired nurse, and she REALLY hates junk food, so it’s more in line with her personal preferences than her direct connection to her childhood.

This is what I’ve heard. What sucks is I’m cutting down on the hard stuff because it’s been messing with my poor stomach.

You know, I don’t really only because it just looked like an uncut loaf of bread from the side and I didn’t think anybody would be super interested in looking at...bread. But zero discoloration, zero sog. All contained.

Thank you, I should have been more specific. I added that info!
