Gü - an unfair advantage!
|What I wanted to buy - Perle de Lait yogurt...|
I'm 5 feet 5 1/2 inches (1.67 m) tall, which according to Wikipedia means that I'm 1/2 inch taller than the average American woman. Even though I'm 2 inches taller than the average French woman, I figure that I'm also about the average height here because Parisian women frequently wear heels.
So, when I came face-to-face with the new Gü display of chocolate brownies, chocolate mousse and chocolate melting cakes where my preferred brand of yogurt used to be at the grocery store, it didn't take me too long to figure out their target market. Women!
Talk about taking advantage of the so called weaker sex. I tried to resist... I really did, but Gü (pronounced "goo" as a play on the French word for taste, "goût") got the best of me.
The next time I go grocery shopping, I'm wearing high heels and sunglasses!
|What I ended up buying - Gü! It's hard to believe that a French grocery store has given some of its most valuable shelf space to an English brand.|
