Nah, that's a standard loaf.
Something that has bothered me for a long time, when you order a sandwich in a shop they often say "would you like it on white or on brown"?.
Well, considering that you cut the bread cake and put the filling inside it, surely the question should be "in" and not "on".
"I would like a ham salad in white" sounds correct to me. Am I wrong?
If it's a freshly made sandwich they put the filling on the bread. Putting a filling in the bread conjures up an image of somehow inserting the filling into the bread.
In Scotland, for a cheese sandwich they say a 'piece in cheese'!?
Technically the filling goes 'on' the bread first, then the second slice placed on top changing the dynamic to the 'filling' being 'in' the bread.
In Chesterfield if you go to the chip shop and you want chips and mushy peas you ask for a "Pea mix please, duck".
I went to town on the bus.
No you didn't, you went in the bus.
Can't have your sandwich "by white or by brown" though.
