Results of my Massimo Bread vs Gardenia vs High 5 Bread Poll

Remember my earlier post about Massimo Bread? I had added a poll in that post. Then I forgot to look at it. Well, recently, I had a look and here are the results as well as some of the comments on the poll as at today. I was quite amused to find that my Massimo Bread post had ranked No. 1 on Google for searches on Massimo Bread.

It is quite a feat to be ranked number 1 on page 1 of Google and continues to be my SEO (Searh Engine Optimization) experiment and goal.  Of course this ranking is dynamic so it will change but I am too lazy to take a screenshot of it being at Number 1. 😉 Anyway, this post is not about SEO, it is about the results of my Bread Poll. So here it is. Tada….

If you haven’t taken this poll but would like to, you can still do so here: Gardenia vs High 5 vs Massimo Bread

Bread made with wholemeal wheat means using unpolished wheat (just like our unpolished brown rice)while wheat germ means using the most nutritious part of the wheat, therefore we derive much better nutrients from wheat germ rather than wholemeal.

  3. TaSnIm said on Aug 04 2011, 01:59 AM:For me, Massimo bread is good. Soft and have a good taste. But, I sense that Massimo bread has a quite strong ‘buttery’ flavor. That’s my opinion.
  4. Jay said on Aug 03 2011, 03:59 AM:I don’t think the Massimo bread in the green packaging is equivalent to Gardenia’s wholemeal. It doesn’t say ‘wholemeal’ on the packaging. Instead it says ‘loaf with wheat germ’ which is probably closer to white bread but for the addition of wheat germ.

    Interesting poll! Haven’t had the chance to try Massimo bread yet but Babe’s comment about it having a longer expiry period isn’t good news, right? More preservatives?

    I prefer High 5 because it spoils earlier than Gardenia 😀 There’s another brand on sale at Giant, which my kid loves but I can’t remember the brand.

  2. Adino says:

    Oh! I missed the poll. I don’t really like Massimo cos it’s too light and slightly more crumbly. I think I’m still used to Gardenia / High 5.

    Congrats on your #1 rank!

    GGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRR till today, I still cant find this bread. I went to Carrefore, Giant, 7-Eleven, Petrol Stations…Dont have. Maybe not destined (if there is such thing) not to try Massinmo bread

    I’ve stopped eating Gardenia bread after I got to know that it actually belongs to an UMNO crony called Syed Mokhtar. Massimo is my choice now & I heard it is actually funded by Robert Kuok. 🙂

    i agreed with Righteous. After knowing the fact that Gardenia is associated with an UMNO crony (Syed Mokhtar), I stopped immediately consuming Gardenia and bought Massimo yesterday.

    I don’t each much carbohydrates but if I were to buy a loaf of bread, I would buy Massimo. Our government-owned BERNAS recently bought a 30% share in Gardenia. BERNAS has been robbing our local padi farmers of their livelihood by importing rice from Thailand, with profits going into our ministers’ pockets. Their profits are around RM80 million per year while our local farmers earn less than RM1500 per month. Stop buying Gardenia bread to show them we care about our country and that we can make a difference. Come on! Send them a message!

    The shop I bought bread from are always selling day-old or stale g-brand bread. This is because van deliver fresh breads to halal shops first, collect the unsold day-old and stale breads and deliver them to the non halal shops. So now my breads are “freshly made” apam-balik, hum-chin-peng or roti platta

    My Aunt work in Malayan Flour Mill. Said Gardenia buy a lot of flour from there. Malayan Flour belongs to Chinese family you know. How come?
    Must be rivalry trying to get more sale.

  9. Apaitu says:

    Federal Flour mills the best floor and sell at the cheapest price too. Don’t believe me, go check it out with the neighbourhood bakers.

    I am a Mat Salleh from Christmas Island, bravo MASSIMO is precisely my choice. Fellow Malaysian…wake up as it has wheat germ in the bread can you believe it. Yeah. Chao Bello.
