Brown bread in a can


I keep seeing on tv. Should I look for it while I am in Massachusetts?

      I tasted the Hi-Rise brown bread at the farmer's market yesterday and it tasted like a much better version of the stuff that used to come in a can.

    2. it's v good and i have baked it numerous times, but i'm not sure it's worth alot of trouble to find it. to approximate the flavor,think bran muffins. Maybe Durgin Park serves it down in Quicy Market.......

          Yes. That is where I discovered this and huitlacoche and black chicken other bizarre foods that I should already have known about....

        2. Most large grocery stores sell cans of either the Friends Baked Beans brown bread or the B & M brand. Is this what you are referring to? It's usually in the baked beans section, and comes with or without raisins. Tasty toasted with cream cheese or butter.

          1. It's worth looking for. Most supermarkets have it next to the baked beans. I laughed when I first saw it in Boston, but it's a unique local item that's great with baked beans.
