Legal Apple sued Motorola back. Who wants a Pop-Tart? Seriously, why don't they sell Pop-Tarts in The Netherlands? Why do I have to jump through so many hoops just to get Pop-Tarts? Or root beer for that matter? I mean, come on.

Not all bread is bad, but, it is hard finding good packaged bread at the grocery chains.

Over here, most supermarkets - even in my tiny redneck hometown in Noord-Holland - have their own in-store bakery. The bread (all variants) on the shelves is freshly made every morning, and throughout the rest of the day.

Well, here around Paris supermarkets don't bake bread themselves, but they have some truck bringing them fresh bread during the day. It doesn't make it better, though. A good description would be tasteless foam in a friable cardboard-flavored shell. It's good enough when all you want is something to put butter and ham on, and arguably much better than packaged sliced loafs of bread, but it's not even close to bread from a good bakery.

By the way, is bread price growing in other parts of the world too ? Here, in less than 2 years, the basic 250g baguette went from .80€ to .90€
