Sorry, should have said "mass market bread that is sold in American supermarkets/grocery stores". It seems to be sweet, which is odd for bread.
I don't imagine they are unique to the UK, but we have cakes that look like bread rolls with icing on. But the roll is sweet. That's what American bread is like to me. It's just nasty.

At least they aren't sweet! I can be quite partial to a "plain" bread, but I think that's a Scottish thing. Gotta like a bit of Mothers Pride plain bread.
