Do southerners have any of these brands? They are all owned a Bolton based company. Just wondered if you could pop into a waitrose and by a loaf of Warburton's. Up here its the most popular type of bread.

I ate Warburtons all the time at uni in Manchester, I never noticed it till i went back to Essex at Chritmas and found it in Tesco.

Yeah maybe they just decided to move it to Essex and London recently.

You can find Warburton's bread here, but it's not the most popular, there's more shelf space for the likes of Hovis/Kingsmill.

i've seen warburton's bread, but don't think i've ever bought it. it looks like quite upmarket bread? anyway, no, i just get own brand organic.

why is the one in the orange wrapper especially for toasting? surely you can toast all bread?!

The orange bread is thicker, so its more suited for toaste, its just medium slized stuff.

Its usualy quite expensive at about 90p a loaf on average, though you can expect to pay £1 in corner shops. The loafs are quite big though. It tastes much nicer than cheap crappy supermarket value stuff.

Yep but Lithium batteries are much better than older type, they last longer and believe me thats a huge benefit. I know exactly what you mean though.

They are lot of silly anchromins that mean nothing whats so ever.

I was shocked when I heard that Southners didn't have Holland's Pies.

And you can't beat hampsons for lunch - two pasties for £1!

A pasty and soup for £1.20!
