A young customer in England had a question for the giant Sainsbury’s supermarket chain. Here’s part of her letter:
Why is tiger bread called tiger bread? It should be called giraffe bread.

And here’s part of the reply from customer manager Chris King:
Thanks so much for your letter. I think renaming tiger bread giraffe bread is a brilliant idea – it looks much more like the blotches on a giraffe than the stripes on a tiger, doesn’t it?
It is called tiger bread because the first baker who made it a looooong time ago thought it looked stripey like a tiger. Maybe they were a bit silly.
The letter is signed Chris King, aged 27 1/3
