Bread. It's a staple. Though with the ever increasing population of Atkins-esque loyalists in the United States bread is a shunned food. France? I love waking up and seeing people walking around with baguettes under their arms. The boulangeries are open in the morning and then they closed for the early afternoon only to reopen around 3 or 4. Because you need to buy a baguette in the morning AND in the evening. Fresh bread twice a day. And damn good bread, too!
