The saying,”The customer is always right!” has been proven by UK supermarket chain, Sainsbury’s. Thanks to an online campaign, the grocery king has announced it will change the name of its Tiger Bread to Giraffe Bread. Last year, 3½-year-old, Lily Robinson wrote a pointed letter to Sainsbury’s after being confused by the product in her mother’s shopping cart. She asked: “Why is Tiger Bread called Tiger Bread? It should be called Giraffe Bread” because the patterns looked closer to the spots on a giraffe, than the stripes of a tiger. Prior to baking, rice paste is brushed onto the top of the loaf, and as the bread dries and is baked it forms a cracked, spotted pattern.
