National brand supermarket breads - if you buy them, which do you like?

Ruling out in-store bakery loaves and bagged store-brand breads, what do you choose when you are buying bread rather than making your own?

I used to get a Harvest Multigrain bread in a brown paper bag with a glassine window - inside, the loaf was in a plastic bag. I think the brand is Baker's Inn but the local stores seem to have dropped it. I think it did have HFCS but I liked its texture and flavor, and it wasn't fast to mold.

Last week I discovered the "Everything" variety of Arnold's Jewish Rye, and I like it a lot. Generous amounts of sunflower, sesame, caraway, and other seeds inside and out. A bit coarse in texture but not overly dry. Good flavor, contains white flour but no HFCS, and what's left after a week at room temp has no mold.

What do you like? Extra points for breads with little or no white flour, and no HFCS. TIA
