The Earth Grains rye was good enough but it is no longer available in Mississippi. All they sell now is that soft stuff. That is not bread.
My supermarket has a display highlighting "Artisan Bread". It's artisan because it says so on the label
It says that it's soft. It looks like you could wad it up smaller that a ping pong ball and use it to throw at your enemies if there wasn't a rock handy.
