List Rules Vote up the most delicious sweet or savory breads.

From its just-baked aroma to its satisfying, chewy texture, bread is a true treat for the senses. But while all loaves are baked from dough, different kinds of breads are popular across the globe. Some good styles of bread are sweet and soft while other delicious breads are savory and full of robust flavors. The most popular types of bread often complement meals.

What types of baked goods will you find on this list of the best breads? White bread is a staple in American households, adding a classic taste to crisp toast and grilled cheese. French baguettes offer a touch more texture with their crackling crusts. When it comes to sweet breads, it's hard to top banana bread. Other good bakery items featured on this list include pumpernickel bread, challah bread, and focaccia bread.

Which type of bread would star in your favorite sandwich? Give your favorite varieties a thumbs up to move them to the top of the list, and please add any tasty breads that are missing.
