I mentioned in another review that we had some frozen pasta for dinner the other night. Since I knew the pasta wasn’t going to be enough for us, I decided to make some side items to go with it. One of those items was Food Club Garlic Texas Toast.
Even though I have had a lot of bad experiences with the Food Club brand in the past, the lower price on their products has resulted in me giving it several new chances lately; at least when it comes to items I haven’t tried before. And, I have to admit, when it came to some of those items; including this Texas toast, I feel as though I have been rewarded.
Now, to be clear, I won’t say the Food Club Texas toast was the best I ever had because it wasn’t. In fact, there were some things I didn’t like about it. For one, it didn’t have quite as much garlic on it as other brands (something I do like when it comes to garlic bread).
However, when it came to taste, overall it wasn’t too bad. And, the fact I did spend quite a bit less on this brand than some of the other brands that were available to me at the time did make me feel as though I was getting more than my money’s worth.
The one thing I did notice about the Food Club garlic bread was how crisp it got in our toaster oven. Many other brands, including quite a few expensive brands, use way too much butter on their garlic toast and, as a result of this, the bread ends up being soggy regardless of how long you bake it.
This was not the case with the Food Club brand. There was butter on the bread. But, there wasn’t too much. And, despite the fact the lack of butter made it crisper than other brands, it didn’t get too hard (like a few other brands I’ve tried). It fell perfectly in between.
I also appreciated the fact there were eight pieces of garlic toast inside the box. This might not seem like a big deal. But, I have purchased cheaper brands in the past and found they only had six slices or, in some cases, only four. It was nice being able to save money without having to sacrifice quantity.
I know I don’t recommend many Food Club products. But, this is one I definitely would buy again.
