Horsham, Pa. (November 11, 2020) – Some of the things we’ve learned during the 2020 ‘Quarantine’, we’re not all bakers. No, baking a loaf of bread is not rocket science, but for some of us, we’re too busy juggling our kids schoolwork, Zoom meetings, working from home, etc., to get in the kitchen.
Fortunately for us, Sara Lee®, knows many of us are craving comfort food, and have introduced a new artisan bread line. The Artesano™ Bakery Bread line is available in four varieties – Original, Golden Wheat, Brioche and all-new Potato – each is sliced thick with a dash of flour dusting and a distinctly creamy character.
Tapping into Artesano’s™ legacy of at-home comfort, the brand’s new potato loaf is crafted with the same thick slices and mouthwateringly soft texture as before – just with an added hint of sea salt, a touch of butter and of course the comforting and delicious flavor of potato bread.
It’s no secret that Americans have spent more time at home and in their kitchens in 2020 than ever before. With winter just around the corner, home chefs will want to reach for thick and indulgent bread to create comfort food staples such as ooey-gooey grilled cheese, holiday leftover sandwiches, breakfast creations and even a simple, buttery slice of toast. It’s all about getting adventurous in the kitchen, especially with the cooler months ahead.
Comfy and cozy is the name of the game in fall and winter, and like a warm fleece blanket, Sara Lee ® Artesano™ Potato Bakery Bread will be the ideal addition to snowy days and family meals by the fire. In fact, recent market research shows that consumers are gravitating towards more savory breads like White, Brioche and Potato*.
“As a leading brand in the bread aisle, we want to continue to meet our loyal fans’ needs, demands and taste buds,” said Ben Buch, Marketing Director of Sara Lee Bread. “With Potato bread becoming a growing go-to for the American consumer, Sara Lee® is thrilled to add this favorite to our family of varieties. We hope this new addition to our Artesano™ Bakery Breads portfolio will spark inspiration for new family-favorite recipes this fall and winter as they indulge in the flavors of the season.”
Sara Lee® Artesano™ Bread is available in the bread aisle of grocery stores and major food retailers nationwide in a 20 oz., 15-slice loaf, for a suggested retail price of $2.99. The bread is dusted with flour before being packaged in a bakery-worthy frosted bag, attributing to its handmade taste and mouthwateringly soft texture.
Artesano™ Bakery Rolls and Artesano™ Bakery Buns are available in-store as well. Artesano™ bread is made without artificial flavors, colors or high-fructose corn syrup, and serves as an ideal bread for your everyday foods — whether toasting it at breakfast or including it in a favorite sandwich at lunch.
