Cranks Organic Wholemeal Bread Review

Good wholemeal bread and a hunk of cheese is possibly up there in my favourite meals, so when Cranks asked me to try their new organic loaf I was happy to.

Its the sort of loaf that reminds me of childhood when we would get a fresh loaf from the bakers. Like those fresh loaves Cranks is a solid heavy bread, filling and nutritious and very tasty, oh and its lovely toasted with butter, just munching on it now. Its a real bread no flimsy pasty looking slices, thick proper bread!

Crank up your picnic with proper organic bread

In time for summer picnics, barbecues and alfresco dining, Cranks, the UK’s largest organic bread brand has re-launched its naturally delicious organic wholemeal bread which is made using only the finest organic stoneground wholemeal flour and wheatbran.

Cranks has a high quality ethos and proving that healthy vegetarian food need not taste bland, has developed its organic wholemeal bread with flavour and provenance in mind. Made the traditional way and without any artificial additives or preservatives added to speed up the process, the dough is allowed to rise in the oven for several hours before being baked to perfection. The result is proper organic bread which is baked the same unique way Cranks has baked for over 40 years.

The 800g unsliced loaves allow servings to be cut to taste, making individual sandwiches and snacks for friends and family. Add your favourite filling to make a fresh sandwich or spread butter to eat with your meal for a healthy, organic choice.

Commenting on the re-launch of the bread, Ben Johnson, Marketing Director at All About Food says “Until now, it has been difficult to find a brand of organic bread which is all about taste, texture and quality. When we eat well, we feel good - Cranks proper organic bread range is both healthy and delicious, bread just as it should be.”

The bread contains no GM ingredients, artificial additives, colours or flavours and are available to buy nationwide with an RRP of £1.52. For more information, visit


  1. Thissounds tasty, I love wholemael bread, so I will give this a try, now to convince my hubby and kids!

  2. I must admit I hadn't heard of Cranks until reading your post. Love wholemeal bread so I will look out for it now and try it myself. Thanks for sharing

  3. We only use wholemeal (or a fancy bread), but I must admit I love a nice slice with a piece or two of bacon on it!
    Not heard of Cranks, but will look out for it.
    Thank you for another great review. x

  4. Will definitely look for this.

  5. The price isn't too bad considering it's been baked the old-fashioned way and it's got proper ingredients. I love this kind of 'real' bread. Thanks for the review.

  6. Mmm yum. Makes me want a sandwich :)
