Greggs continue to prosper! Had one of their vegan sausage rolls the other day. Although 10p more than the regular roll, seemed ok.

Seemed.

Weasel word. Have you tried the weasel rolls?

HerrWalrus - 11 Jan 2019 10:58:54 (#3 of 288)

Weasel word? Not going to claim it's the best tasting thing around. What could I say? Filling and bland (like the existing sausage roll)?

Not retail as such, but Flybe has just gone bust, picked up by Virgin and Souter for 1p a share (was trading at 16p yesterday)

"Floybe"

Sounds like an insult from a 1980s primary school playground.

Greggs continue to prosper!

I walk past a Greggs in the morning, that invariably has people queuing out of the door!

If I were in the market for a sauasage roll I would try the vegan one. It's not like you eat a sausage roll for the quality of the artisanal acorn-fed pork is it?

FrankieTeardrop - 11 Jan 2019 12:12:20 (#8 of 288)

In Leeds we do. Clearly, Wigan is different.

mememe - 11 Jan 2019 12:14:18 (#9 of 288)

Hmm.

FleurDuMal - 11 Jan 2019 12:17:03 (#10 of 288)

Frankie is quite correct.

SinnerBoy - 11 Jan 2019 12:33:47 (#11 of 288)

Gregg's sausage rolls are fucking terrible. They are made with about 50% chicken fat, in the sausage mix.

FrankieTeardrop - 11 Jan 2019 12:34:26 (#12 of 288)

"Gregg's sausage rolls are fucking terrible."

I've always wondered where bears defecate, can you help with this, too?

SinnerBoy - 11 Jan 2019 12:35:58 (#13 of 288)

In the Pope's hat.

FrankieTeardrop - 11 Jan 2019 12:36:53 (#14 of 288)

ha

Gregg's sausage rolls are fucking terrible.

In many places they are the only place that sells such an item. The Simit Saray here in thatLondon does sell a sausage roll*, but iirc it retails at something like £4 a roll. If you're going to pay that much may be better considering a kofte kebab or a burrito.

* no idea if it tastes good.

Why would you have sausage rolls from Gregg's when you an have Galloway or Muffin Man?

mememe - 11 Jan 2019 13:24:10 (#17 of 288)

I have neither. But I do have a big jar of Uncle Joe's mint balls.

FrankieTeardrop - 11 Jan 2019 13:25:10 (#18 of 288)

fnarr

mememe - 11 Jan 2019 13:26:12 (#19 of 288)

Christ.

FleurDuMal - 11 Jan 2019 13:27:33 (#20 of 288)

Well you walked into that one ...
