This is my favorite bread. Because of the rye content it tastes very hearty. It’s perfect for a quick lunch: slice of bread, butter and cheese (or ham) on it, fried egg on top, pepper (salt if you want) and a few slices of fresh cucumber. And you won’t need any more until supper.
You do need a good bread knife to slice it, though. If you are the owner of an electric slicer it works even better.
The bread is great but shape of the loaf and the hardness of the crust makes it difficult to cut.
My order of bread arrived well insulated and in perfect shape. I like how fast orders are processed. The products are wonderful. Recommend.
We ate a week from this loaf. You can’t get this kind of hearty grain bread at you grocery store. Tasty too!
We are from Austria, and we love bread!
I did find another bread company which sells german excellent bread too. But this one is by far our favorite. Amazing crust and the authentic flavor of 'Schwarzbrot', soooo good. I could live just on this bread alone.
Very happy with the Rye loaf
Very good taste and quality. I wish it were offered pre sliced as well. Other than that - outstanding
Amazing just like the rye bread in Germany

I live in the country of North Florida. My bread arrived today in perfect condition, no small feat as I am very far from any town. I have the bread defrosting and will bake in about an hour. I let you know if I like the bread. I bought the large order so I’ll report on each one. I also added on cookies and apple pastry. It all looks amazing.
Great items loved it when it arrived was ready to get my breakfast rolls and pretzels and bread had put in frezzer minutes after arriving until next meal until next time all arrived on time well recommended
Although I did order a large amount of this bread, I thought that I was ordering the German Farmers bread that I so dearly loved while I was in Germany. Don't get me wrong, the rye bread that I received was nice, but it's going to take me a couple years to go through it as I am not a big fan of rye bread. Hopefully in the next few years you will have the German Farmers bread for sale, when you do expect a huge order from me!!
Perfect texture and flavor as I remember it.

Nice and crusty and very tasty. Love it!
Every bread and roll are really delicious! We love it !!!
The best since I left Germany 47 years ago.. Many, many thanks.
This is actual German bread. Texture, color, and taste are spot on. Fuenf Sterne.
I wish the bread would come sliced. It has a little bitter, strong taste to it. Also, when you slice it part of it falls apart.
To dense and heavy - flavor ok
Your products are excellent, however the shipping is not. Our latest order was shipped on a Friday, but not delivered until Monday. One of the ice packs had broken open and the complete package had all melted. Luckily all the products were sealed in plastic.
Very happy with the bread
We love the rye bread. The best we've had since our last trip to Germany. Can't wait to try the rest of the breads that are in the freezer.
The bread came packed in ice and bubble wrap; still frozen. Perfect!
I put it in the freezer right away until I baked the first loaf: came out most delicious, nice crust and very tasteful!
From now on our favorite; just like from german bakery
I love the flavor and the texture of the Bread, just like at home specially when the Bread comes out of the Oven,
oh what a smell so good.
Not my favorite...very, very dense and the middle was falling out.
Really good. Tastes just like the bread I use to eat in Germany. Easy preparation.
Only issue I have is packaging. Needs to be a heavier box, so it won’t bust open in transportation.
Very tasty bread. Crusty crust, soft inside. Very yummy with cold cuts, and as a side to simmer salad, soup or stew.
I love everything everything I bought
It was like having fresh bread German bread on top of it. We had just returned from Munich and I left so light eating bread there everyday. So I was on a hunt to finding fresh German bread with real German ingredients. I googled and found this website
It’s a dream come true
Love the rustic flavor and the crust is heavenly!
The BEST in the whole of the USA.
I can’t eat gluten in the US…. But have zero problems when I visit Germany. I don’t have to buy the terrible gluten free bread at the grocery store anymore…. Which is life changing <3 Just made my third order <3
The bread tastes very good
The breads are really good. I love that I can bake them and it’s like going to the bakery first thing in the morning and get it fresh .
So happy to finally have found a bread that I truly enjoy. The Rye Bread I ordered bakes up beautifully and reminds me of home. I have ordered “German Bread” from different vendors only to be disappointed again and again.
Ordering my now favorite bread from the Breadbox will definitely be in the future.
My favorite loaf. A solid Rye bread with substance. I enjoy every single slice of it.
Loved the rye bread and after I heated the bread, I sliced it and placed the slices in my Debbie Meyer green box (plastic). The next day I went to get a slice and noticed it had green mold on it. I don’t know if I should have kept the bread resting for a longer time before placing it in the green box. Anyway, the slice that I ate before putting the remaining slices in the box was excellent!
I love the rye bread especially with cheese and cucumber on top. One slice of that bread is enough to fill you for hours, no snacks needed. Putting a fried egg, fried mushrooms, cheese and slices of tomato on top and you have the perfect lunch or dinner.
Very good bread test like home
Wonderful bread--so glad I found this source for healthy, delicious, fresh bread. Just like the bread I used to get from the corner bakery in Weinheim, Germany!
This bread is wonderful!
It takes a little longer to thaw than the recommended time, so plan for a little more time. The crust is very nice and it bakes well. The flavor is taste just like a bakery.
I love the bread!
Das einstigste Brot das wie deutsches Roggenmischbrot schmeckt!
We loved it I just wish the bread was a little larger.
I thought I was going to get what I had from German bakeries in NEW YORK. Texture was good but lacking a strong rye flavor.
Put this in the freezer upon arrival.
Thawed 2 hours, baked at 410 degrees for 20 minutes.
The crust was very hard to cut through.
The bread was still partly cold inside. And unfortunately dry.
I bought two loaves. Am going to thaw the second loaf longer, and bake at a little lower temp to see if that helps
Cut in half after baking to freeze. Freeze’s well. Keeps well for a few days after baking
Sent to my mom for mother's day (we're German) and she had called me every single day since then, sometimes 3 times a day telling me how good the brot is. Lol I'll never send her anything but bread lololol
Bread was wonderful. Taste just like when I lived in Germany.
I love this bread and I will continue to purchase four loaves every two months or so, I bake it, slice it and freeze it in portions, so I always have fresh German Crusty Rye Bread!
I'm a New Yorker living in North Florida desperate for good rye bread. This didn't even taste like rye. The crust is too hard to cut. I'm giving away the second loaf to someone who has never been to NY. Am certain they'll love it.
Like the crust
Everything tastes fresh, delicious, authentic, and is so easy to prepare.
Tastes very good but crust quite hard to chew. Also bread is hard to slice with only a bread knife.
So delicious! Easy, hearty.
Wonderful taste and texture. Just like it’s from a German bakery!
I have tried many othercompanies , but this one is the closest that you can get to a hearty rustic dark German Bread. Great Taste!!!
Took me back to my childhood in Germany! Thank you for this wonderful bread. I will be back ordering more! ❤️❤️❤️
Very dense and crusty - just like back home
It's so good! It reminds of the bread we used to get when my dad was stationed in Northern Germany in the '60s, and Momma would shop in the local stores. Makes the best cheese toast, too!
It’s a bread with wonderful texture and great crust.
Healthy and filling, it keeps me energized and active without the urge to snack for many hours.
I would have rated it a 10, if it had an oblong, instead of a round shape. It’s hard to slice when it’s freshly baked and the slices would be more uniform if it were oblong.
Bread was good but the delivery could have been better. By the time it got here all of the ice packets melted and everything was wet. Invest in mailing coolers
While the bread is great, the shipment ended up being completely defrosted. Therefore I ended up with too much bread to eat. Very disappointed
That rye crust bread is so good and after it's baked it taste like fresh from the bakery.It reminds me of home(germany).
Love my brot!!! I feel like I'm home in Munich!! Great product, showed up fast. I couldn't be happier!
This one is tasty but a little too sweet - I think I was looking for something more like black bread. Still tasty though!!!
Love the taste, however we followed instructions to bake it, but it crust is very hard, almost impossible to cut, and because crust is so hard it is separating from the inner dough
Wonderful, crisp crust and beautiful soft center.
Germany all over again! This is our go to bread when we have family over for brunch! They love it! Just add butter to enjoy or you can toast it as well. Delicious!
This is the only original German rye bread that we have been able to find in the USA. It tastes great when still warm from the oven and when toasted. It lasts for over a week without getting moldy or drying out when kept covered in aluminum foil.
Does remind me of German rye love it with mounds of butter
Of course German’s we love our bread, and if you don’t live in Germany, you miss our German Bread the bread from the bread box tastes just like bread in Germany and of course, I love it
This is a very good Rye bread, the texture is great for all toppings. Thanks!
well it has been 30 years since we left Germany and this was one of my best time when we baked our first rolls. They are better than I ever thought they would be
tough to cut into slices it crumbles.
I lived in Germany for 12 years and missed their bread. Your brotchen and German pretzels taste fantastic. The other breads I haven’t tried yet. I will definitely keep ordering from you. Thanks for making such wonderful breads.
Almost too dense for our taste, but tasty none the less.
Super tasty! I immediately enjoyed it with egg salad for lunch.
This bread is delicious. I am so pleased with my order. I still have one more to try but will definitely be ordering again.
I am a steady customer for my authentic German bread, and I will continue to order it as long as it is available, A+++
Love the moisture and heaviness of this bread. Tastes great fresh and baked after it has been frozen.
Great crust, moist crumb, deep rye flavor.
Breads & pretzels were very tasty- quick shipping- excellent customer service with several emails advising of order progress !
I really enjoyed the the taste of this bread. Like in Germany. Thank you that you are here.
We spent many months in Vienna, Austria, over the past several decades.
Among the many delights was the bread, baked daily and on the shelves and out the door the same day.
There is no commercial source or equivalent bakery in our little city.
The chance to get bread and rolls like those we enjoyed every day is a godsend.
It's marvelous that your bread and rolls can be eaten with butter or other topping and bring a smile to our faces.
Just not for me
Easy to bake and tastes great. Reminds me of my travel in Germany.
Another win from a Brotbox.
Rye bread tasty, dense and delicious!
We thoroughly enjoyed all our pics!
Love it...its what I grew up on.
So good reminds me of my homeland.
So delicious! No blood sugar change. (Type 2) I made a Ruben casserole with this bread. So good!
This is the long sought after bread my mother in law from Poland used to get until the Polish deli in South jersey,who imported it from a polish bakery in Brooklyn, closed over a decade ago. I searched off and on in the local area and then online sources but gave up until a dinner party where I encountered this bread. It was perfect . Thus was confirmed when aforementioned Mother in law made the loaf and complained she ate too much of it in one day. So yes this was right on target.
Loaf is top of picture.
Flavor was fantastic
Amazingly good and tasty bread with a nice crunchy crust. Just like I remember when I grew up in Bavaria. Definitely worth it!
This bread is so delicious and flavorful. My husband loves the crust when it is fresh out of the oven but still enjoys the flavor and texture the following days.
