Roman Meal Bread

Does anyone know where I can purchase Roman Meal Bread?
I love the 12 grain but will take anything!

      It's amazing to me that the Roman Meal Bread team trolls the chowhound websites, who know. I didn't even think your bread was in production anymore. I ate your bread back in the early 80's. Now I make my own Roman meal style whole grain. Haven't seen it in grocery stores in the longest. Wow.

        We're definitely still in production! :)
        We can give you a list of stores that sell the bread in your area if you let us know where you're located.
        Thanks for your message.

        I can never get a good answer from Roman Meal as to why their bread is no longer available in the Seattle area. I think it's a contractual issue with Bimbo Bakeries. When they used a bakery in Portland, it was a better and more available product.

          The Roman Meal Company reminds me of the White Rock Beverage company: A family owned business where the owners didn't care about good marketing. Roman Meal has a great product but their distribution is a joke. Why they cannot get a local bakery to make their bread products (in the Seattle area) is beyond me.

          1. re: cshean

            Roman Meal bread is baked and distributed by various bakeries around the country, under license agreements. As a result, there are times when the bread is difficult to find. We're always working to improve distribution. Roman Meal should be back in Washington state in 2011. In the meantime, feel free to check out Oroweat Outlet stores as some now carry Roman Meal.

              Well that's great to hear. I'm a huge fan of the product..I'd even wear a Roman meal t-shirt or a baseball cap but you don't sell those (marketing again). I had just never encountered a situation where there was a great product out there and not be able to purchase it without traveling to another state..and I'm not just talking about your round top bread, You also made a wonderful multigrain bread, similar to Oroweat's Master's Best, but better. I haven't seen any of those specialty breads in my area. It's maddening to see them on the website but not be able to buy them.
