1.The children had it as sandwiches in their packed lunch, one had it with butter and marmalade at breakfast, and we also had it to dip into soup.

I found it a bit thin for dipping in soup, I prefer a thicker slice.

1. How did you try Warburtons Half White Half Wholemeal bread?

Toast, in our packed lunch and as eggy bread.

2. What did you and your family think of Warburtons Half White Half Wholemeal bread?

We really liked the bread, it was not as stodgy as white, and had most of the qualities of brown, on the whole they liked it (however I did not tell them it was 50/50 with the toast as I knew they would decide they did not like it before they ate it - surprisingly they did)

You get best of both and I think it's more family friendly.

1. How did you try Warburtons Half White Half Wholemeal bread? Perhaps you made a sandwich or had some toast for breakfast?
Dh had it toasted, I just had a slice with butter Ds made a sandwich

2. What did you and your family think of Warburtons Half White Half Wholemeal bread?
It was very nice (we all compared it to Kingsmill50/50) the slices were quite thin for a medium sliced bread, however it was very light in texture and you were aware of the wholemeal content.

3. What did you like most about Warburtons Half White Half Wholemeal bread?
I/we liked the lightness and the moistness of the bread.

4. Would you recommend Warburtons Half White Half Wholemeal bread to others?
Yes it is nicer than the Kingsmill (which we normally buy)
5. Are there any other varieties of Warburtons bread or other Warburtons products that you would like to see invented?
Do Warburtons do seeded burger buns or pitta bread?

6 As an extra comment we had great difficulty in getting the Warburtons Half/Half bread. I normally shop at ASDA and Sainsburys neither of my local stores (both large supermarkets) stocked it but my DIL got it for me from a branch of Tesco. I am assuming that in time it will be widely stocked.
