Tesco plan to stop selling curved croissants because British customers ‘prefer spreading jam on straighter ones’

Sigh. Yes you did read that title correct, apparently Tesco are planning to stop selling curved croissants because British customers ‘prefer spreading jam on straighter ones’.

I really really hope this is a joke story, in fact I’m sure it is, I’m sure it is some cheap way for Tesco to get some attention, either way it looks like it’s time for another ridiculous news story.

Tesco are to stop selling curved croissants because British find it tricky to spread their jam on them. This is ridiculous for many reasons.

First off it’s just stupid. Plain and simple. Just reading it makes my head hurt. Does the croissant being curved really make it that much trickier to spread jam on it? At most it means you have to take a couple of extra seconds to do so, big whoop.

Apparently Tesco reckon that this, shall we say difficulty in spreading, has led to a decline in the sales of curved shaped croissants. Or maybe people just don’t like croissants? Or, and I’m just putting this out there, maybe they don’t like Tesco’s croissants? They’d rather get “proper” ones from a bakery or something, you know where they are fresh as opposed to those long life ones.

For the record I love croissants but I don’t waste any time spreading crap on them. It is completely unnecessary.

Oh and here’s a fun little fact ‘croissant’ means ‘crescent’ in French so kinda means that a croissant can’t be straight and needs a bit of a curve.

People really do have too much to worry about don’t they? This just feels like a completely surreal story. The shape of croissants and how best to spread them is now a newsworthy debate apparently.

It’s a bloody croissant.

      1. My mum always said we don’t like the French and they don’t like us. She never forgave them for eating horsemeat, although I think her only experience of France was a one day trip to Boulogne some time in the thirties. Living in Switzerland I don’t have EU problems, just Swiss problems, but we have curved croissants and just tear them apart when eating them. I spread the butter and jam on the ends, that way you can eat more of it. I wonder if it was Boris Johson’s idea about the straight croissants?
