Dead of Dead Bread
Samples from Mi Tierra and Casa Latina again. Small MT like a sweet challah $1.99. Slightly larger CL less sweet $2.50. Both good with larger sizes available in non sugared varieties. Arizmenda in the City not out yet. I didn't see a schedule for East Bay.

Bought one today from the Lakeshore Arizmendi -- big loaves only (that I saw) at $5.50 a pop. As in previous years, these were shaped like little men -- some with their arms spread, some with their arms crossed, with either chocolate or almonds for eyes. No two loaves alike. It was pretty good, but not as moist and not nearly as sweet as Mi Tierra's version, which is still my favorite. This is more like a savory bread that you'd spread butter on and eat with dinner (or jam, with breakfast), with just a hint of sweetness. I imagine it'd make for interesting French toast.

Saw an ad for them at Las Montanas, but I haven't tried them yet.
For the Arimendi in Emeryville 10/30 and 10/31 ... also reserve your chocolate sortbrea bats.
