Without bread, flour would be so abundant it'd coat the entire earth in a fine white powder, causing museum curators to accidentally collect hibernating bears that appeared petrified. Keep flour where it belongs with today's deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of freshly baked breads, sandwiches, and other sweet treats at Great Harvest Bread Co. on 28th Street in Des Moines or University Avenue in Clive.
Great Harvest specializes in baking tasty delicacies and healthy, homemade breads ($4.50–$6.95 per loaf) that are high in fiber, free of preservatives, and crafted with flour freshly milled on-site every day. The bread selection changes each day of the week according to a monthly schedule; previous offerings include asiago cheese & sun-dried tomato, cranberry orange, savory potato and pizza rolls, and parmesan pesto. For carb connoisseurs that prefer breaded delights that are easily juggled, Great Harvest bakes sweet-tooth sating confections such as scones, muffins, cookies, and bars in flavors such as raspberry swirl and ginger.
In addition to pleasing crowds of bakery fanatics, the Clive location also pleases carnivores with its sandwich menu, loaded with classic cold cut combos and melty grilled paninis. Cool mouths hot from long days under a tanning bed with the pepper bleu roast beef ($6.39), decked out with red onion, romaine lettuce, tomato, and bleu cheese spread between caraway rye bread, or warm up with a BBQ cheddar chicken Panini ($6.89), where the melted sharp cheese blankets bacon, lettuce, tomato, red onion, and a smoky honey BBQ sauce on a wheat or white focaccia.
