Sandwich oversold

pret-460_1418685cLONDON – A Pret a Manger in the Square Mile is facing claims that its ‘Award-winning chorizo and rocket artisan baguette’ is actually closer to a sausage sandwich. City worker Denise Adams told reporters she paid £3.80 for the baguette after her expectations were “artificially inflated” by its eloquent description and smart packaging. “But really, I could have made something just as good myself at home.” Adams said this was just what she intended to do next time, adding that spending up to £11 on gourmet bread, tomatoes, roasted peppers, rocket, cured Spanish meat and balsamic vinegar from Sainsbury’s would show she refused to be conned by major food retailers.
