- A US traveller has opened about her strange obsession with Australian bread
- The woman said she experienced the ‘softest, most amazing bread I’ve ever had’
- She claimed she doesn’t know how she could living without the bread
- She was mocked by hundreds after admitting it was a $3.40 budget Tip Top loaf
A US traveller has detailed her strange obsession with a specific loaf of Australian bread after she tried ‘godsend’ toast that tasted like ‘ecstasy’.
The woman said she experienced the ‘softest, most amazing bread I’ve ever had in my sad American life’ after she bought a loaf at a grocery store during her visit – before she was mocked by hundreds when she admitted it was by Tip Top.
In a Reddit thread titled: ‘I ate bread in Australia and it ruined my life’, she said nothing compared to the budget $3.40 loaf after she searched through the bread aisles in American supermarkets.
‘Guys, I can’t live without that bread. Ever since I got back to America I’ve been in pursuit of a bread that can deliver just as well. But I’ve found nothing,’ she wrote.
‘Am I doomed to live for the rest of my life without that bread? How am I supposed to go on knowing that such delicacies lie on the other side of the planet, and I have no means of access? American bread is small, thinly sliced. It’s not as fluffy.

During her trip Down Under, she said she purchased the bread with an orange-coloured packaging labelled ‘toast’.
‘The very first bite was ecstasy. I had around three slices before I even thought about popping some in the toaster,’ she said.
‘And the toast was something else. The toast was a godsend. I would pay just to live off of that toast for the rest of my life. It was still soft despite it being toasted. I remember thinking, ‘is this the Australian standard? Is this how they live?”

She shared her bread experience on Reddit two years ago, but her post resurfaced on Twitter on Wednesday after a Sydney writer shared it on her page and said it was the ‘saddest’ thing she’d read.
Hundreds agreed with the writer, claiming the bread wasn’t even ‘close’ to the best on offer.
‘That’s like the bread you buy when they’re out of everything that isn’t home brand,’ one man wrote.
‘She bought Tip Top bread and thought it was the best bread she’d ever tasted. Sh*t. I am so spoiled with my $7 sourdoughs from The Gordon Street Bakery,’ another added.

‘When even Tip Top inspires such rave reviews you know the bread situation in the US is completely dire,’ agreed a third.
Others backed the American woman, saying they too could understand why Tip Top would be a highlight after tasting awful bread while travelling in the US.
‘American bread is awful. I have no idea what they do to it but it’s gross. It’s like eating cake. A lot of the food I ate over there just seemed overly processed,’ one wrote.
Another said: ‘Lived in the US for close to a year. Ate their bread, it’s bad. Bland, processed, sugar added badness. To make matters worse I couldn’t even find real butter to spread on it.’
‘Can confirm. Lived in the US for 18 years. The bread is too sweet and the cheese is too yellow.’
