In before the "probs has all sorts on it!" crew come along.
These "Baguette" are baked in-store from frozen, but are already part baked. They are ok but not like a proper bakery baguette. Most Morrisons, Asda and Tesco make theirs instore so are better.
I know that Tesco are moving their instore bakeries over to the part bake model this year, which will be a real shame. The sales of their bread has dropped due to the "naked" bread that they just put on the shelf, rather than wrapping it first.

Tesco batons are smaller and lesser in weight.
So a saving of 18p if you buy two and it goes hot ?
Not directly relevant to the deal itself, but I wonder why they call these "French" but the panini are Italian "style". Perhaps they are par baked in France before getting finished off in UK. I don't know??
I'm going for these and spending the savings on a Caribbean cruise!

Following a complaint by the Real Bread Campaign, in 2010 the Advertising Standards Authority banned a Tesco ‘baked from scratch’ advertisement after the company admitted that it only did so at a fifth of its 2,362 UK stores. It also confessed that 1,288 of its in-store ‘bakeries’ were in fact what the Campaign calls loaf-tanning salons, merely re-baking loaves made elsewhere.
massive deal on this one
Every little helps.
Always sold out in mine, they don't seem to have enough staff to make them?

Yes, they have already moved lot's of stores over to the new model. All of the Lidl stores are "loaf-tanning salons"
I think Morrisions are trying to hold out but I am not sure. Its fairly easy to tell the difference in the bread.

That's from 2010! Most Tesco stores have been using pre-baked bread for the past 9 years so no real difference to Lidl (apart from Tesco charging more).

They are in the process of moving them over to part bake, my Local Tesco still make the bread from scratch. Although the bakers tell me they are likely to be made redundant in May.

Your original comment was that most Tesco stores (and others) bake their own bread from scratch. Whilst they may do at your local, most Tescos don't and haven't for at least 9 years (although they'd like people to think they do!).

About 50% of Tesco superstores had (in 2010) scratch bakeries, none of the express or metro stores had them. I was wrong to use the current context, the information I was using was from about 10 years ago.
My original comment was more against part baked bread, I can get proper made and baked bread from my local Tesco so used them as an example. Personally, I go to a local independent bakery when I want proper bread.
Hope you don’t get too much stick about this deal
