I love breads and here in the Philippines, we have a popular bread that I think can only be found here and it's called "pandesal"... some are crusty and crunchy outside, with bread crumbs outside and soft inside. A lot of people here eat it for breakfast, it's really good when freshly made. We buy it from neighborhood bakeries. What kind of bread is exclusive in your country, what's it like and how often do you eat it? How much is it by the way? One peso here to two pesos... for one peso, you will get 49 pandesals for $1.

Its not exclusive to my country, but this is one of my favorites: Blueberry Cheese Rolls Ingredients: 1 pkg. (8 oz.) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls 4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened 2 Tbsp. sugar 1/2 cup blueberries, divided Directions: PREHEAT oven to 375ºF. Unroll dough into four rectangles; firmly press perforations together to seal. COMBINE Cream cheese and sugar; spread onto dough rectangles to within 1/2 inch of edges. Top evenly with blueberries. Bring opposite corners of rectangles together; press together to seal. Place on ungreased baking sheet. BAKE 11 to 13 min. or until golden brown. Substitutions: Substitute 1/2 cup chopped red or green apples and 2 Tbsp. raisins for the blueberries. Substitute Neufchatel Cheese for Cream Cheese.

There are all sorts of bread here in the USA. My favorite is whole wheat bread, then potato bread is also liked. We take Italian bread and make garlic bread with it. French bread is sturdy enough to add to soups when we find it on sale. Oh, almost forgot, Sourdough bread. Hard to forget that one. Made from a starter and is usually sturdy and tangy to taste! Most breads are well over 1 dollar a loaf. Making our own bread is kept alive by home bread machiens. Some of us still make it by hand from scratch. Hope this gives you an idea of bread in my are of the states. Ohio!!
