If you are a lover of croissants, you may find this news odd. A UK supermarket has decided to stop selling crescent shaped croissants.
Supermarket Tesco has announced that they will only be selling straight versions of the French pastries because customers ‘can only spread jam on straight ones.’
Customers have been poking fun at the decision and pointing out that croissant actually means ‘crescent’ in French – they want to make straight crescents!
Tesco hopes that straight shaped croissants will decrease accidents and sticky fingers when people try to spread butter or jam on the pastry.
Many people believe it is a tactic to cut costs and that Tesco are only making the croissants straight in order to fit more in the oven at one time.
