Great for parents! The whole wheat flour gets milled daily and the bread is baked from scratch every morning. You can't find that anywhere else. Plus they use simple ingredients, no High Fructose Corn Syrup. The best bread (Honey Whole Wheat) only has five ingredients :) That is what got my husband and I hooked.
