You know, this unloved guy. All my life my parents buy bread and never use the end pieces of bread and I'm always wondering why. Why don't we use them? Just take each end and make a sandwich out of them.

*dingdingding* That's my piece of toast, actually...

What do you think? Do you eat this? Why or why not? Be honest!

when I buy a sliced loaf, I use the end piece to keep the rest fresh, and at the end it is dry......then I start a new loaf, and I'd rather eat fresh bread than a crust.

The ends tend to be a bit ratty and not really a complete slice, so they are more likely to fall apart. They're perfect for breadcrumbs though

I have no idea why but my family has done this since I can remember, the 'crusts' as we call them are left in the bag and then thrown away
Baffles me! If I manage to catch it before the mould sets in I will eat them.

Toasting a mice thick crust with some dairy free spread and jam or peanut butter is just EPIC!

Guilty as charged... most of the time. I don't like the crust, therefore, the end pieces do not get eaten unless I am desperate and that's all that is left to the loaf of bread.

I agree with Blobbenstein here. The crust slice helps keep the rest of the bread fresh so they end up very dry. I tend to throw them into my compost bin.

if it's a whole piece, I'll eat it. if it's not, and it's only a half or third of a piece, I'll crumble and tear it up and toss it outside for the birds.

Great question.

I usually make my loaf and I always eat the crust. It is by far the best part as it is nice and crusty.

I never throw bread away - leftovers make breadcrumbs and also feed our furry friends in winter.

I throw it away because dropping it just gets messy after a while.

That is relieving.

yep the ends dry out...but I usually eat them anyway b/c I don't like wasting food. They are good as long as you spread some Earth Balance on 'em.

If it's super fresh baked bread then the crust is good, but if it's pre-packaged stuff from the grocery store I don't really care for the ends and never eat them. It's ok though because this drives my husband insane and he'll be sure to eat them so they don't get thrown out.

Actually... I will eat them if they're toasted and I have some soup to dip them in...

I think I saw that on the X-Files so it must be true.
