Bread is strong enough to fortify flimsy food pyramids, yet gentle enough to hug lonely condiments in a warm embrace. Cultivate a culinary cornerstone with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of baked goods and more at McGavin's Bread Basket. Choose between two locations: Kelowna or Penticton.
A bakery outlet for Canada Bread Company Limited, McGavin's offers rows of loaves at wholesale prices. Fill bare cupboards or secret floorboard compartments with discount bread facing a dwindling shelf life, surplus bread from overzealous production lines, and fresh bread from local bakeries. McGavin's white or 100 per cent whole-wheat loaves prove eminently slatherable (five loaves for $10.49). Other yeasty feasts include Dempster's Bagel six packs (three packs for $8.99), english-muffin six packs (four packages for $9), and tortillas (three packages for $8.25).
The popular discount special section, meanwhile, invites gluten gourmands to mix and match an ever-changing cast of short-dated dough bookends: every product, regardless of size, grain, or resemblance to Winston Churchill, costs $1.39, and shoppers can mix and match an assortment of 10 loaves for $12. Discount selections change daily and vary by location. A pilgrimage to McGavin's Bread Basket not only offers the satisfaction of rescuing perfectly good bread from the trash bin's clutches and stockpiling a cache of carbohydrates in the underground bunker, but also allows for far thriftier Little Debbie snack cakes, Voortman cookies, and peanut-butter-and-jelly weddings.
