Introducing The Straight Croissant...Yes Really!

It might be time to say goodbye to the beloved crescent-shaped croissant, as apparently us Brits can't handle the tricky curves...

Breakfast with croissants

You may believe that the 'C' shape of a our favourite baked good is non-negotionalble. 

Croissants are curvy, just as the night follows the day and your favourite song always gives you that happy feeling when you hear it. 

The word itself does, after all, mean 'crescent' in French. 

However, supermarket giant Tescos has announced that it's ditching this classic figure in favour of a new, straight style. Controversial right?

The brand will no longer sell the pastry in its traditional form, but will be introducing a new patisserie style without the difficult edges.

"At the heart of the move away from curved croissants is the 'spreadability' factor." Harry Jones, from Tesco, said. "The majority of shoppers find it easier to spread jam, or their preferred filling, on a straighter shape with a single sweeping motion."

So what do you reckon? Will this new look fly in the face of all that we know and love, or is this much needed change finally going to revolutionise the way we eat breakfast?
