Wow! That's a tough choice. Does the 100% whole wheat bread get it's sugar content from high fructose corn syrup? If so, I would rule that out.
The second one is marginally better, in my opinion.
What's wrong with both of them is that they are made from finely ground flour. To say that a bread made with flour is 100% whole grain or whole wheat is a little misleading. Any grain that's ground into flour is no longer "whole". And it makes a big difference in the way it gets absorbed into your bloodstream. Baked goods made with flour will be absorbed into your bloodstream faster. That means there's a tendency to raise your blood sugar faster. And that's not good.
A better choice would be any bread made from sprouts. Supermarkets that carry it, keep it in a freezer near the frozen vegetables. There will be some that have no additives whatsoever. After you buy it, you keep it in the freezer because they typically don't contain any preservatives.
