or are you able to pick one out without touching all the others?
Thanks, it IS a good question, isn't it?
Mo Farah managed to pick out a pain au chocolat without touching the others in 0.5 seconds. Pip was impressed.
I only buy independent morning goods, thanks. Or make them from scratch.
don't they usually come in plastic boxes/pre-bagged now?
still a wide selection of individual, loose pastries available in all good supermarkets!
Individual, loose and no soggy bottoms
crumble as soon as you put them in your mouth, end up on your hips, often look better than they taste, grow stale after a few days, better when smeared in jam
people who bang on about things being homemade? No? Ok then.
which allows me to pierce each pastry without disturbing the rest.
hope you're well
from purposefully/or accidentally covering their hands in poo poo and then purposefully/or accidentally rummaging around in the fruit, vegetable and patisserie section, is there? I mean, sure, 99% of people wouldn't do this, but what about the 1%? WHAT ABOUT THE 1%? this is one of my GREATEST fears
I always take extra time in washing out those french pain au chocolat ones, they are bloody filthy inside!11!!!1
my hands are already full of other morning goods
Otherwise, I'm perfectly happy to dig around in there to get the best one, and reject sub-standard ones that I've left prints on.
No flaffing with plastic tongs, squeezing too hard, destroying the pastry you thought looked the best.
Bag on hand, pick up pastry, draw inside, tie off, self service til, run it through as a much cheaper pastry, walk off like a King.
i can now never do it again.
I'm not really a fan of donuts/doughnuts (seems a good place to make this statement)
2) pastries from supermarkets are shit
3) i don't trust tesco's clientele not to sneeze all over the loose ones.
."3)" reminds me of the time i was in sainsbury's and saw a little kid walk over to the tube of brussels sprouts, put one in his mouth, suck it a bit, say something adorable that escapes me in my old age (if fihiki is lurking, please do remind) and spit it back into the tub. his dad saw, chuckled, and moved on with his day. what was he to do?
anyway: lose supermarket pastries: for idiots.
like a tube of smarties
And i honestly can't remember the last time i washed my hands after using the toilet either.
and whack em in a bag, tongless
i got in trouble for touching a ciabatta at the weekend mind
ciabatta touching is a frowned upon practice
pick up the pastry, turn the bag inside out, et voila, pastry in the bag and I haven't had to touch the dirty tongs or incur the wrath of health and safety muscle, serve that with a pork pie/sausage roll.
No matter, how loose and aqueous that shit is, it's all going in the bag. So solid pastries are a breeze.
still thought of it independently though - i shall consider j_l_b's thises my own
Let's just stay here and talk amongst ourselves.
That's what bacon is for.
are you genuinely interested in the answers?
the worst thing about these self service things btw is opening the bags, nightmare
However, I may start. Looks kind of fun.
There's no fun there.
but i make sure that if i break it, i put it back and select another
F**K YOU SOCIETY!
unable to release them from the shelf, fumbling with them and then failing to maintain a grip on any of the croissants they want.
they i just calmly step in with my bag glove and show them how it's done.
I bet you are. Probably one on each hand.
people have still had their germy hands all over 'em.
Much better value to buy a pack of croissants/cinnamon whirls/whatever, plus you get more of them.
those ones are lower quality/smaller.
that doesn't even make sense
Get a good taste of everything, choose the best.
Grab em and finger the others while you're there
It tastes the SAME!!
I avoid this by not buying shit liek this at all unless it's being sevred to me by a person wearing a net in their hair and a cap.
Can this wait?

but they are all stuck together in sixes, so if you want less than six you have to rip them apart with your hands anyway.
political correctness gone mad.
thanks for your time.
