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.
L’oven Fresh Apple Strudel Breakfast Bread is a Regular Buy, which means it’s in Aldi stores year-round. You’ll find it in the baked goods with the bread, donuts, and brioche. L’Oven Fresh is an Aldi private label for various baked goods.
It’s $4.39 for a 26-ounce loaf. There are 14 servings per loaf, and each serving is 1 slice. Each serving has 160 calories, 3g of total fat, 1.5g of saturated fat, 220mg of sodium, 30g of total carbohydrates, 10g of total sugars, and 7g of added sugars.
As for allergens, this contains wheat, milk, and soy.
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.
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.
