Q: Why doesn't my store carry all of the varieties of Dave's Killer Bread?
A: Many stores choose to carry only a certain number of our varieties (good examples of this are Costco and WinCo), while other stores choose to carry our whole line. If you want your store to carry more varieties of DKB, fill out a comment card or speak to a manager and let them know which varieties you would like the store to carry. Most stores take customer feedback like this very seriously and your effort can help us get additional shelf space for more breads! Thanks for your support.

Q: How should I store my bread?
A: The best way to store your bread is on your counter or in a bread box at room temperature. Take care to keep your bread away from sunlight, heat, and high moisture levels, they can cause the bread to mold early. Yuck! To store bread for extended amounts of time (up to three months), put a second bag around the original bag, seal it tightly, and place it in your freezer. Thaw slices as you need them. Storing bread in the refrigerator will keep your loaf from molding; however it may also dry out your bread. We recommend freezing bread if you can't possibly eat  it all, but good luck with that.

Q: Why doesn't the bread mold?
A: The organic dried cane syrup (sugar) and organic cultured wheat are natural ways that help keep our bread from molding quickly. Also, we go to great lengths to ensure that our facility is free of any airborne contaminants that can cause mold. Finally, we strive to make sure that loaves of DKB are sold as fresh as possible off the grocery store shelf to give you the most time to enjoy it at home. We do not use any artificial or chemical preservatives.

Q: Do you make a gluten-free bread?
A: We do not currently make any gluten-free products. It's really hard to get a gluten-free bread to match our high standards for killer taste and texture (we're trying!).
