L’Oven Fresh Apple Strudel Breakfast Bread

I don’t have a whole lot of extra time when I wake up on the weekdays, so breakfast is never extravagant. It’s usually a granola bar or cereal. Since I don’t make huge breakfasts, I’m always looking for simple grab-and-go breakfast foods. So it’s pretty obvious why I grabbed this breakfast bread below.

Like a lot of breakfast foods, this isn’t the healthiest thing in the world, so I won’t eat more than maybe 2 slices each morning.

Like normal bread, this can be eaten as-is right out of the bag, or you can toast it and add something extra like butter to it. Eating it on its own isn’t bad. It doesn’t have actual apple chunks. The ingredients say it’s made with concentrated apples, which looks to be a juice or paste of some sort that’s added to the bread dough. There are pockets of cinnamon throughout the bread as well.

Because this bread has some flavor to begin with, I don’t have any problem eating it on its own. It’s more dense than regular bread, but not to the point where it’s hard. It feels more like certain quick breads such as pumpkin bread or banana bread. We tried toasting it and putting butter on it, and it definitely is a great way to eat this. I felt like it brought out the flavor a bit more, and toasting and warming it made it lightly crisp on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside.

Since this already has quite a bit of flavor, it wouldn’t make much sense to put something like jam on it. But I could see someone putting butter on, then sprinkling some extra cinnamon on top.

The Verdict:

L’oven Fresh Apple Strudel Breakfast Bread is something I’m glad I found. The apple cinnamon flavor is nice. Toasted and buttered, it’s a good comfort food. Whether you’re enjoying it as a breakfast food or an afternoon snack, I say go for it.

  1. This is one of my favorite items (maybe THE favorite) I get from Aldi. Its been pretty scarce locally for me for the last year or so but I did buy a loaf sometime earlier this winter and stashed it in the freeze. I did noticed they’re putting on less of the crumbly topping than the first few times I got it a few years ago. Like you I look at it as a sometimes food maybe along side a bowl of oatmeal. A cinnamon bread is sold with it in the same display but I don’t like it nearly as well.

  2. Why can’t I buy the Apple Strudel bread in Danbury or New Milford CT?
    Don’t like the Lemon or cinnamon raison.

  3. The only thing I don’t like is there is never enough in stock. I buy every loaf Aldi has when I can find it. And we even eat the ends.

  4. These items just dropped from 26 ounces to 20 ounces. The loaves are quite noticeably smaller.

    • I just noticed the smaller loaves in my local store today. The sign still says they’re 26 ounces, but the loaves are only 20 ounces.

  5. This also makes terrific French toast! Yum! Should it be refrigerated?
