today i learned – thurs 17th may 2018

this fact has genuinely left me a little bit speechless 😢

as it has the french … there are literally no words for this πŸ˜‚

#tdil that, in 2016, tesco stopped selling normal shaped croissants because people like to moan πŸ₯

so yeah, tesco only sell straight croissants (with the exception of their ‘french croissants’ pack) and the reason is simply that too many people moaned it was harder to spread stuff on the crescent shaped ones! πŸ˜‚

like, literally, what even is this planet πŸ™ˆ who on earth actually makes the effort to actually complain to tesco that proper croissants are hard to put their butter on πŸ˜… who has that much time!?

want to know the official statement from tesco? (this is gold):

β€œThe majority of shoppers find it easier to spread jam, or their preferred filling, on a straighter shape with a single sweeping motion … with the crescent shaped croissants, Β it’s more fiddly and most people can take up to three attempts to achieve perfect coverage”

how incredible is that … it can take a whole three attempts to spread! three! 😱 what a literal outrage πŸ™ˆ

in fairness, there was more to the decision than just ease of spread … there was also the fact that peeps found straight croissants more sophisticated πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

right, i think that’s enough of this eye-opening look into humanity πŸ˜‚ have a good day πŸ‘πŸ»

byeee! 😜 #tdil
