In Palmy North - 95c to $1 a loaf from Budget & Norths have switched to ONLY Toast bread. Pak'Save buyer said not enough being sold of sami so stopped it. Don't buy other brands.

Homebrand sliced is pretty thin - I'm sure they still do sandwich slices in white and wheatmeal

PNS sell Pam's Multigrain sandwich for $1.95 a loaf. shame they did away with the budget sandwich bread

Gosh, can remember once upon a time of getting those thin Reizensteins Sliced Bread as being the middle bread of a triple layer club sandwiches.

Hmmm, wondering if some of these bread shops can alter their bread slicer to cut as such. otherwise to buy those normal sandwich loaves.

Thanks to all

Ask at newworld, about to make dz's cheese rolls and they get it sliced thinly for us. They should be able to tell you how many you can get at a time.

Vogels does really thin slices, not sure if this is thin enough.

It's a shame that thinly slice loaf isn't done anymore. It was perfect for sandwich making.

I just use the Natures Fresh sandwich one. I cut the crusts off both ends, which seems to make a big difference.

I buy the $1.00 loaf from Countdown it is the thinnest sliced bread that I can find, cheers Raebea

I like thin toast and buy Pam's sandwich loaf. The trouble is that every so often the slices are too thick and I have to pass them over to my husband. I just might try Countdown for my bread. I remember years ago we were able to get a whole loaf and cut it almost wafer thin if we wanted. Don't think I would like to try now with all the different breads around
