Malt loaf has been around since the evolution of mankind. Ok so possibly an exaggeration but I have been eating it since the 70’s when my mum regularly put it in my packed lunch box for school. It’s sticky, chewy and fruity and makes a great snack or dessert. Recently Soreen sent me some of their loaves to try and they were delicious.

Since the 70’s Soreen have expanded and now they make all manner of exotic loaves. I had no idea until my package arrived in the post that there are now 12 different products in the range.

We tested the sliced malt loaf, banana loaf, fruity five loaf and of course the original malt loaf itself. I loved them all, but found the sliced loaf the most convenient for grabbing in the morning to butter a few slices and bung them in the kids lunch boxes.
