Only at a French petrol pump…

Baguette special offer, France…would you see this offer of buying baguettes.

That’s right. Here is a sign offering a free baguette at the supermarket attached to the petrol station I was filling up my car at. Only in France.

    I would not buy a baguette at a gas station unless I am starving! but it is a good deal and lots of bakeries are into this trend nowadays! Mine has a ”buy 3 croissants get one free” kind of deal!

    Bernard, I’m with you on the starving bit! Give me a decent bakery over a free baguette any day.
