Sliced Bread

Jan 29, 2022 • Wikireadia

Sliced bread is a loaf of bread that has been pre-sliced with a machine and packaged for convenience, as opposed to the consumer cutting it with a bread knife. It was first sold in 1928, advertised as “the greatest forward step in the baking industry since bread was wrapped.” By 1933, around 80% of bread sold in the US was pre-sliced, leading to the popular idiom “greatest thing since sliced bread.”
