A supermarket chain has renamed its tiger bread after a Barking grandmother who made suggestions as to how it could be improved.
Not satisfied with the quality of Asda’s products, keen baker Audrey Bond, 85, gave her tips to baker Gary Gordon at their Barking store after striking up a friendship with him across the counter.
Her gripes with Asda’s loaves included them coming out the oven shaped like kidney beans and having partings in the middle.
An Asda spokesman says they have now rolled out her reccemondations across their stores and in recognition of her contribution they have decided to bow to social media pressure and name the loaf after her. It is now called “Audrey’s Tiger Bread.”
She has even been awarded a seat on the prestigious Asda Tasting Panel.
Audrey said: “I get people stopping me on the bus on the way to Asda or saying hello to me in the store after they saw me with Gary online, it really makes my day.”
