The Raisin Bread I Remember

I REALLY like raisin bread - well, cinnamon raisin bread, specifically.
I remember that the kind we used to have when we were kids had this yummy cinnamon sugary topping on the top of the crust - that was my favorite part! I think it may have been Roman Meal brand, I'm not positive about that.
SunMaid is good, but it doesn't have that topping:

And I like the Cinnamon Raisin Swirl from Pepperidge Farm, too - but no sugary topping here, either:

Other than possibly getting it from a bakery, I don't know if I will ever find it again. It was definitely a sliced, packaged, brand-named loaf.
Does anyone else remember it??

That package looks really familiar to me. The graphics are so groovy!

I honestly don't remember the crust topping you are talking about. I do remember having raisin bread, I like it but haven't had it in years. We used to make cinnamon bread too, with butter and sugar and cinnamon. Yum. I hope you find your topping, sounds great. Love T

Oh my gosh, I just finished a piece of raisin bread toast right before I read this!

I think that Costco sells a double loaf package of raisin bread that has a sugar topping. It's been a while since I bought it but I'm pretty sure it was Costco.
I love raisin bread but I think the regular brands are kind of dry. I do make bread pudding with the Sunmaid Cinnamon Swirl Bread. It's great for this. The recipe is right on the package.
