What are the 12 whole grains in Arnold's 12-Grain Bread?

DSCN7620

1. Barley

2. Brown rice

3. Buckwheat

4. Corn

5. Flaxseed  

6. Millet

7. Oats

8. Rye

9. Soybeans

10. Sunflower seeds

11. Wheat

12. Nuts (almonds and/or hazelnuts and/or walnuts)

For no real reason I tried to think of 12 grains but came up way short so I looked at the package label.

Turns out there are at least 12 grains but there could be as many as 14, depending on what's available in the bakery when the company makes up its dough on any given day.

The list appears up top.

Who knew almonds, filberts (hazelnuts), and walnuts were grains?

Not moi.

Helpful Hints from joeeze: Never listen to a single word of a commercial again

If you find it annoying — as did I before I twigged — to have to listen to the first few seconds of commercials before muting them, your ship has come in (to mix a metaphor).

When you hear background music start while the announcer's talking, know that a commercial's imminent, and press mute.

Easy peasy.
