Pillsbury French Loaf - Ad

Pillsbury French Loaf (Whole)

Pillsbury French Loaf (Sliced)

Looks: As you can see, my loaf was lopsided. Maybe that’s intended, to make it seem more authentically homemade, but I found it offputting. Who wants to eat a lumpy loaf? Nobody. Besides that, the bread didn’t brown to the same tone of brown as the bread on the packaging did, but that could have been due to cooking time. 4 out of 5

Taste: Good for coming out of a can. The crust was flaky, and the bread was chewy and not too dry or too moist. However: there’s something off about Pillsbury bread products thought that I always taste – maybe it’s a preservative or whatever they use to keep it from sticking to the can, but every time, there’s a slightly-off aftertaste. It’s not enough to spoil the taste itself though, so I give it 4 out of 5
