Short baguette bags are incredibly annoying and unhygienic. The bread end invariably pops out on the checkout stand or in the cart and I wonder what kind of disease-laden virus or bacteria has latched on. Sometimes at home, I cut off the end and throw it away I’m so disgusted. Recently, I decided to buy a baguette when I noticed the bag has been extended and folded over, allowing for a semi-secure closure. I was thrilled to see this and hope this never goes away, even when the Covid-19 pandemic is over.
Am I being too obsessive about this?
