Morrisons do the best cheesy sticks.

like how you're refusing to say the B word; cheap for bread

Those are half price coz those aren't French sticks. Those are British Baguettes

Wow fml...

I work part time in a Morrisons bakery and have to tray enough of these up on a Saturday at full price. Combining this with the closure of the local Tesco it seems Im going to have a field day constantly getting French sticks out of the freezer and putting them in the revent oven.

I cant believe these are so expensive in the first place! No way should bread be over a quid a loaf!

Voted hot but only because they are at the price they should be anyways

Why don't they seal the ends of the wrappers,i always wonder if people have had their hands on it when it's all open oO

@ deb8z I think it might be to do with them being wrapped up whilst still hot. Prevents moisture forming and making the bread soggy!

It's not that. It's so that it doesn't feel so bad if some accidentally breaks off in your hand a few times and then falls in your mouth while you're going round the shop. I get faulty bags of pork scratchings in Home Bargains that do it, too.

I agree.
Us British have no idea how to make nice proper bread like our European neighbours do.

Too right.

Duty managers nagging for French Stick without even checking the ovens is the worst.

The French Stick bags come in as you see them. All we have to do is put the French Stick in them. I suppose its ease of use and like said above to prevent moisture forming which would make the bread 'sweat'.

Remember French Stick is meant to be eaten within 4 hours of purchase so there is no real need to have it sealed to maintain its 'freshness'.

I totally agree with Dep8Z, breads should be sealed on both end.I Mean baguette or whatever you want to call it French stick....

heat added at this price

I remember when I was young, my sister and I used to have sword fights with these in ASDA.

Any bread that is sealed will go soft within about 2 hours

they could put micro perforations but people would moan that there's holes in the bag then

Bought one - thought it was a trifle stale to be honest.

It can get quite tedious when french stick is constantly in demand by the managers. I try telling them that I have them in both the revent and deck ovens, and also have some prep'd to go in straight after but they expect miracles and what them refilled constantly.

Also, Im meant to crack on with other things than just spending 8 hours traying up and baking off french stick lol. I try telling my department manager and assistant manager that they should train the other bakery assistants how to do it but my voice falls on deaf ears



There is holes in packaging for the crusty bread, crusty rolls, speciality section and french stick.





Yeh that annoys me too and I work there. The bakery assistants and bakers do touch the bread with bare hands but our hands are cleaned frequently. I hate when customers pick up an item and just chuck it back down regardless if its upside down or not. Old people who squeeze the crusty rolls are the worst lol
Edited by: "DT89" 22nd Apr 2011

lol yeah people always feel the crusty rolls to see if they are actually crusty, when they find out they are they get the pack next to them as they've ruined the pack they tested.

I guess you dont buy bread then? Even those little half loaves are 75p each

@deb8z I get around all of that by making my own! The only hands touching it are mine, the OH and the kids.....:3

Would be a good deal if my local didn't blacken every single stick that came out of the oven, they haven't been the same for the past 3-4 years even after making a complaint/suggestion nothing has ever been done, I'm just glad I don't do my full weekly shop there instead just the essentials when needed.
