Pan de Sal Sales Up, Thanks To Presidental Spokesperson Harry Roque

752B3A8B-A89C-44C2-9AB3-72BDE10E50CD.jpegMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Bakeries and grocery stores across the country are reporting a sharp increase in pan de sal sales in just the last 24 hours.

They have Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque and Philippine Star to thank.

Roque was earlier quoted for his threat to throw hollow blocks at those who are critical of the Duterte administration.  But at a press briefing yesterday, he softened his rhetoric, defended mainstream journalists and urged pro-Duterte socmed warriors to go easy on the likes of Rappler’s Pia Ranada.

PhilStar then published an account of the press briefing saying that Roque, instead of throwing hollow blocks, threw pan de sal.

The National Food Authority may have to increase its wheat importation to meet the increased demand for the favorite Filipino breakfast bread.
