    McBaguette

    Thaaat's right.





    Starting April 18, McDonald's France will begin serving the McBaguette, a burger with lettuce, local Swiss cheese and mustard sauce, at 1,228 restaurants across the country. The company said it sought out French suppliers for the baguettes, which are baked in stone ovens for a crisp crust.

    The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that the McBaguette would cost around 4.50 euros, or about $6. McDonald’s would not confirm that pricing, but said it would vary based on the market.

    Diners who associate McDonald's exclusively with burgers and fries might be surprised to learn McDonald's has been adapting its menu to cater to regional tastes worldwide. At McD's in India, for example, you can get a fried patty of paneer cheese on a bun and topped with spicy sauce.

    In a statement, Nawfal Trabelsi, senior vice president of marketing McDonald's France and Southern Europe, said the McBaguette is just the latest in a series of offerings designed to appeal to the palates of local diners. McDonald's France currently offers four burgers garnished with local cheeses.

    For now, the McBaguette is a limited-time menu item, available for six weeks only, although if it proves to be popular, this French twist on an American sandwich could become part of the regular line-up.

    Would you pay $6 for a McBaguette?

    I would pay $6 for one, one time. Looks tasty but $6 for a cheese sandwich doesn't strike me as anything to write home about.
    I figure the cost breakdown is 25 centimes for the bread, one Franc for the cheese and 50 centimes for the lettuce. About another
    Franc for the overhead. McFrenchy is screwing the Frieboys on this one. Now if they added the fatty ham they could sell it as a
    Jambon with cheese and then it would only be overpriced by about 100% compared to getting a real Jambon on the economy.

    I'm keeping all my Francs. Marks. Pounds, Kronas, Krones, Lira, Marrkas, etc. It's only a matter or time when the Euro will go belly up and the European states start another World War and everyone reverts back to the original currency. Then I will become a power money broker. What do the French call a Big Mac? A Big DeGaulle?

    Ahhh, I did not see the meat. So, $6 for that looks like a fair deal with the meat. On another note. can I still use Francs to pay for stuff in France?

    I think you are supposed to eat it, but whatever floats your boat.

    Lube should help.
