I Wonder®... What's It Gonna Be?

This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Wonder®


Blogher recently asked me if my family would participate in a taste test.

Which calcium rich product would The Mayor and The Rooster choose to eat if given the choice: canned spinach, canned red beans or calcium fortified Wonder® Bread?

[Wow, now that's a hard one to predict! Who's to say?! Who can guess?!]

To ensure that this taste test would be conducted in a fair and unbiased manner, I have been provided with a video recording device (which I understand is mine to keep and for that I am very grateful).




So let's see what my short and loud people chose to eat, shall we?






Oh, quelle suprise!

Apparently two slices of Wonder® Classic White Bread are fortified with as much calcium as an eight ounce glass of milk.

The Mayor, who is the self-proclaimed "King of the Milk Palace" has little to worry about in the calcium department, but The Rooster, taking after her Grandma Seattle, is less than excited about drinking milk.

[Good thing she skipped trying the beans or spinach and went right for eating two pieces of the bread!]

And now a little contest action for you...

Wonder has decided to give away a $100 Visa gift card and a year’s supply of Wonder bread (that’s 52 coupons for one free loaf of Wonder® Classic White or Wonder® Classic White Sandwich bread).

melissa said...

hmmm my seven year old adds cheetos. i don't think that is nutritious though, huh.

Kirdy said...

My personal favorite is peanut butter and sliced bananas, it's is extra good on white wonder bread!

thatgirlblogs said...

nutella. oh wait,I thought you said delicious...

Carroll said...

There's really no substitute for fluffy white bread when making a good greasy grilled cheese sandwich.

Nutritious? Hmmm, well maybe if you count the pickle that goes with it as a green vegetable :-)

Annette D said...

I try to sneak in some veggies on all of our sandwiches to make them more nutritious.

My family is all about the Wonder Bread!! Especially with bananas & peanut butter.

FunnyGal KAT said...

We add peanut butter. Probably not the most nutritious answer you're going to get, but it's still protein, right?

Elaine said...

Always good with spinach and tomatoes!

Nancy said...

We add lettuce and tomato to our sandwiches, especially in the summer when the veggies come out of the garden.

What do I add to Wonder bread? Fresh mait, baby! I love fresh mait, straight from the deli. The expensive, no filler, no additive kind. Mmmmm, fresh mait!

MamaFeelgood said...

Peanut butter and homemade strawberry jam are my favorite ingredients

jburden said...

Except for pb&j, we use cheese on almost all our sandwiches to add calcium

jburden said...

Cheese!

bargaingirl said...

I grew up eating Wonder Bread so I serve it to my kids with Peanut Butter and sliced bananas spread on it for an Elvis sandwich.

Lisa said...

Peanut Butter, of course. I think they boys would eat it with a spoon if I'd let them.

LStewart said...

Most call it wierd and that's quiet alright, we love it anyway. What we love is rather a strange combination but I seriously think everyone should try it at least once. Two slices of fresh Wonder Bread, Peanut Butter on one slice, Mayo on the other. On the mayo side add a slice of cheese and a couple slices of ham. On the peanut butter side add another slice of cheese and some sliced banana. Slap the two sides together and enjoy with a glass of COLD milk. OH MY ... so very good!

Jennifer said...

I like to make egg salad sandwiches to add a little protein. My daughter loves it!

KSDallas said...

Sticking to the classic - PB&J. Yum!

Cecilia said...

My son loves hummus, so a hummus and cheese sandwich is perfect.

chicagoteri said...

We use hummus & tomatoes on our sandwiches to sneak in that extra nutrion.

Jones said...

toasted wonder bread, ranch salad dressing, fresh tomato and cucumber from my garden, sprouts, and cheese. Yummy!!!!! ajsahm@gmail.com

Laura Stewart said...

lots of veggies !

Crystal said...

Natural peanut butter and homemade sugarless jam

jessilynn said...

To make my sandwich more nutritious, I like to make your basic chicken salad, mayo, tiny bit of mustard, boiled egg, little bit of onion and sweet relish and the extra's to make it more nutritious are that I cut up a cucumber in really small cubes and also add one or two artichoke hearts. I mix that all together and put in the fridge. Then when it's time to serve, I will cut up a tomato in little pieces and mix that in. Toast the wonder bread and then add the chicken salad and wahlah! lol It's really yummy! TY for the giveaway. Groceries are so high right now and winning anything to lower that bill would be super!

T said...

Keep it simple! There is nothing more blissful than a peanut butter sandwich on Wonder Bread.

I used to love to put avocado on practically every kind of sandwich (especially a BLT!), but then I developed an allergy to it. Now I stick with peanut butter and banana.

I try to cut way down on things like mayo or butter and instead use mustard and a LOT of veggies like tomato, onion, cuke, olives and lettuce.

cstironkat said...

I toast the bread then add a cheese and lean ground beef patty to it. You can make a tuna melt this way too. Adding lettuce and tomatoes to sandwhiches makes them better too.

Leftover turkey breast, that and a bit of butter and I end up with a high calcium high protein low fat nummy sandwich!

About all I can get away with is cheese, maybe some turkey.

Vegetables! We add lots of veggies in our sandwiches. My personal favorite is to add basil or cilantro to the mix.

We like making "butterfly snacks" - a piece of bread cut diagonally, corners placed back-to-back to make the wings, with peanut butter, raisins, bananas and nuts on the bread for decoration. Oh, and a baby carrot, sliced longways, to make antennae. According to my kids, it's yum!

Gina said...

I try to put healthy lean meats and some veggies on our sandwiches. The kiddos don't like crunchy sandwiches so they usually have to have their fruits and veggies on the side.

Occassionally, I make up a cream cheese/veggie spread that I use instead of mayo and cheese.

Thanks for the contest.

For a more nutritious sandwich, tuna with lots of lettuce & tomato. However, if I'm being bad, grilled ham & cheese. Perfect with homemade chicken noodle soup!
