Dear 100 Hour Board,
What grocery stores (in the Provo-Orem area) carry French or Francophone food products? What foods do they carry?
- Hungering after a croissant

A: Dear Nathan,
I looked around when I went grocery shopping last time, and I don't think I found anything genuinely French. I found a few products, like croissants, that claimed to be French, but even my ignorant American self wasn't convinced. Yes, there are a few products that are actually consumed in France. My friend lived in France and used to eat Nutella, and you can find that here. I know where to find fun food from South America because there are enough Latinos here to necessitate Latino markets. But I'm afraid that the Provo/Orem area doesn't have a real demand for French food. Which is okay, since they would have had to rename all those products "freedom food."
