Why would you ever throw out perfectly good food? So I vote no

What? Why would you toss it out?

If I ever eat the ends of a loaf of bread I have to either have them individually in one eating session, or have them both (if I am eating a sandwich or something like that). It is delicious however, and I love the ends of all breads.

i presume we are talking sliced bread

@Animasta said:

we don't throw it away at the start but we do just leave it in until all the bread is gone and THEN throw it away... it's so dumb.

no man the end is covering the rest of the bread so it does not get stale, it fine.

I can understand throwing out the end of an American pullman loaf, which I guess most of the people in this thread associate with the word bread, because the crust on those is at best completely unremarkable. French bread on the other hand...those chewy heels caused many a fight between my siblings and me.

I can agree with this.

Those heels come in handy when you want a late night sandwich and there is only one piece of non-heel bread left. So no I don't throw them out.

that would be the logical thing to do but the ends just fall sideways and they just stay in there.

I eat like 2 or 3 sandwiches a week. My bread gets stale and moldy almost half way through the loaf so I just throw away the heel.

yes, we keep them until the bread is done. it keeps the inner pieces fresher.

No. I'm a bread fiend though. I can eat a loaf of bread by itself. It's probably my favorite pastry. I'm not throwing away jack shit.

my mother has this really weird thing with "end bread" so i have naturally followed suit. i don't take it as far as her though; she'll throw away a good portion of milk because it is getting towards the end of the carton. she calls it "end milk."

The dog and the birds seem to like that part, so we just throw it to the dog if we remember it and if we forget about it and it goes all hard the birds get it.

No because it tastes the same as any other slice, sometimes one of the ends gets left but that's only because it's at the other of the end from the opening and it occasionally goes moldy by the time we get to it, otherwise bread is bread.

Coming from a person who enjoys just eating slices of bread and will regularly eat the crust off first, hell fucking no. Save that heel to the end and then eat that too.

you save both ends and use it for a sammich at the end.

Sometimes I just wolf it down with orange juice or something. It feels less weird to eat plain bread when it's the heel.

But I don't really do it that often. Since it's usually in the bag until the bitter end, I expect my family just throw them away.

I don't think I've ever ate that part before. That being said, I leave it in the bag until just the two ends are left, just in case some crazy person in my house decides they want to eat it.

I dislike the crust on most bread so the end pieces are useless for eating. Yet, if you are cooking a lot of bacon the end pieces are useful for soaking up the grease.

Never! Depending on the type of bread, the heel can be the tastiest bit!

I would take a loaf, scoop all the insides out and just eat the remaining crust. That is the only tasty part of bread.

The person that opens the bag for the first time should take the first end. I dont mind them in the least, it tastes exactly the same.

Wait - people throw away the ends?


There's absolutely nothing wrong with it - it's just bread! I find this seriously disturbing.

THANK YOU. It drives me absolutely insane. It's literally just bread like every other piece of bread in the damn loaf, but, for some reason, it really bothers people and the fact it bothers them really bothers me.

This exactly. Especially if it's a hardy stew. You can make awesome trencher sandwiches to eat while reading/watching Game of Thrones or playing Skyrim. That's what I do, anyway.

I save both ends until last and make a sandwich out of them or whatever, just to keep everything symmetrical.
