Brits in fierce debate about what the end of a loaf of bread is called

What do you call the end slices of bread?

It’s a question that sparked heated debate on the Daily Star Facebook page (if you’re not following it, you’re missing out!)

People from different parts of the UK are adamant their way of labelling their loaves is correct.

We had all manner of suggestions – including crust, knocker, heel, tommy, outsider and “end bit”.

One commenter remarked: “Crust. Can't beat it toasted in front of an open fire with real salted Welsh butter.”

And another agreed: “Crust – lovely when thick, buttered and toasted.”

A third commenter revealed: “In Scotland it’s the outsider.”

And a fourth wrote: “We call it the tommy. Don't know why but parents and grandparents did (Tyneside).”

Another said: “My friend in Yorkshire calls it knocker.”

A sixth explained: “The heel when we were first living in UK from Ireland – then the crust as we grew up there – back to the heel again now!”

And another added: “In Australia it’s sometimes called the butt.”

Others came up with more creative responses.

A Facebook user joked: “The ‘it's mine leave it alone’ bit.”

Meanwhile, some had ruder nicknames for the bread as they think it’s the worst part of the loaf.

A responder giggled: “The slag….everyone touches it but nobody wants it.”

And another simply said: “Bin liner”.
