The McBaguette is not, strictly speaking, a baguette. But it is not bad. McDonald’s France has introduced a selection of sandwiches on rolls resembling a shortened version of the classic crusty French loaf.

Sorry, Gallic purists, but after sampling it, I can tell you that the McDonald’s bread is pretty good. OK, not as good as the premium-priced “traditional” baguettes sold in bakeries and served in upscale restaurants, but certainly no worse than the standard loaves consumed daily by millions of French.
