In a Reddit thread titled, “I ate bread in Australia and it ruined my life,” she said she noticed nothing compared to the $3.40 bread budget after scouring the bread aisles in US supermarkets.
‘Guys, I can’t live without that bread. Ever since I got back to America I’ve been looking for a bread that can deliver just as well. But I haven’t found anything,” she wrote.
‘Am I doomed to live the rest of my life without that bread? How else am I supposed to know that such treats are on the other side of the planet and I can’t access them? American bread is small, thinly sliced. It’s not that fluffy.

During her trip Down Under, she said that she bought the bread with an orange-coloured package marked ‘toast’.
“The very first bite was ecstasy. I had about three slices before I even thought of putting some in the toaster,” she said.
“And the toast was something else. The toast was a godsend. I would pay to live off that toast for the rest of my life. It was still soft despite being toasted. I remember thinking, ‘is this the Australian standard? Is this how they live?”

She shared her bread experience on Reddit two years ago, but her post resurfaced on Twitter on Wednesday after a Sydney writer shared it on her page, saying it was the “saddest” thing she’d read.
Hundreds agreed with the writer, claiming that the bread was not even “close” to the best.
“That’s like the bread you buy when they run out of anything that isn’t brand name,” wrote one man.
“She bought Tip Top bread and thought it was the best bread she’d ever tasted. sh*t. I’m so spoiled for my $7 sourdough from The Gordon Street Bakery,” another added.

“When even Tip Top gets such rave reviews, you know that the bread situation in the US is downright dire,” agrees a third.
Others supported the American woman and said they could also understand why Tip Top would be a highlight after tasting terrible bread while traveling in the US.
“American bread is terrible. I have no idea what they do with it, but it’s filthy. It’s like eating cake. A lot of the food I ate there just seemed overly processed,” one wrote.
Another said: ‘I lived in the US for almost a year. Ate their bread, it’s bad. Bland, processed, sugar added badness. To make matters worse, I couldn’t even find real butter to put on it.’
‘Can confirm. Lived in the US for 18 years. The bread is too sweet and the cheese is too yellow.’
