This Bimbo white bread has been sitting on my kitchen counter for two months now. I am doing an experiment to see how long it will stay fresh. The slices of bread are very soft and tempting. I could make a sandwich out of them and enjoy it, except that I know how long it has been sitting there. And I also wonder how long it was on the shelf at the grocery store.... There is NO MOLD on it at all.... and no signs of any bugs trying to get into the package.
