What’s up with Hoboken bread?
Have you ever noticed bags of delicious bread just sitting on the sidewalk?
In plain sight: Fresh bread
Well, that is how the bread companies delivery to Hoboken businesses. Whether it’s from a local Hoboken bread maker, or a company in the city or even west Jersey. They just drop the bread off (exposed) in brown paper bags on the doorstep of most Hoboken delis and restaurants.
Here’s a few observations:
- I understand the bread is made very early in the morning. Is there a better way to deliver it safely?
- How many homeless people steal the bread? It’s like so easy! There are times thousands of us readers could easily walk away with the fluffy loaves of fresh-baked bread. What is done to prevent that?
- What about sanitary measures? I know bread shouldn’t be air-tight, it makes it soggy. But there are potential pollution, chemicals, germs, bird crap and other toxins that can make it’s way to our love-loaves when we’re not looking. What precautions are taken? Where are the food warning labels?
- What happens if an entire bag of hero rolls is stolen? Does a business get reimbursed? Where do they get there bread then?
For years I’ve seen these lovely bags of carb pleasure sitting on the sidewalk. And for some miraculous reason, it seems no one disrespects the beauty of that sight.
Who’s getting a nice hero sandwich for lunch??
