Cuban Bread

Who makes the best Cuban Bread in Tampa? Can they ship it to Wisconsin?

    1. It doesn't travel well AT ALL. I've tried shipping it many times, and it never survives well (stale, mouldy, etc)

        It has a short life but does freeze well

      2. If you ship it in its' paper sleeve it'll arrive stale, or if the plastic bag/sleeve has micro-holes, it'll be stale... But if it's packed in a twist-tied plastic bag with no holes, it'll stay soft till it turns green in a week or two, because of the trapped moisture...

        So, if you get the bread in a few days, packed properly, and you freeze it when it gets there (you can make a sandwich first) you'll be OK...
