With all of the supply chain issues that I'm pretty sure we've all experienced lately, I think it is a valid excuse.  Hope you found some other yummy foods to enjoy!

Plenty of good stuff, just not my go to special request.

What are Savory Bites? Do you order them in the MDR?  Are they on other ships?

Savory Bites are a special bread. In my opinion, they are THE BEST food item normally available on Royal.

Years ago, they were among the always-available bread selection in the MDR. Now, they are only available on request. They are normally available on all ships - this was the first time I have been unable to get them.

We have always asked and been provided. "didn't have the required flour" sounds like a pretty lame excuse to me. 😎

Now that I know what Savory Bites are, I can tell you as a bread maker that the type of flour does matter.  I have tried switching flours in recipes before and it was a disaster. I also know at the beginning of the pandemic, King Arthur Bakery was having such a hard time filling their flour orders that they created a new size: 3 lbs.  This was instead of their traditional 5 lb bag.  This was to help meet the demand for specialty flours.

I bet you never thought you would learn so much about flour on a cruise blog.  LOL!

We were introduced to "savory bites" on the Harmony before the covid shutdown by a table mate.  We liked them and decided to ask for them on our Jewel cruise in April; the taste was the same but they were very crunchy (almost pretzel like}; I thought they were more bread like on Harmony.  Oh the wife asked for them on night 1, and they should up on night 2 and every night after that.

You're right. Just goes to show you what can happen when you're just "loafing around". 😎
