Sausage roll, apple danish and a can of Tango with change from a 2 pound coin?
I love Greggs - Chiceken Sald sandwich on white bread = WIN
spunky chicken and mango sandwich too for us posho's.
I went to this conference thing with work last year where there was a, wait for it.....free greggs. And I was massively hungover so it was actually the most welcome thing you could ever imagine.
Worth a shot?
Also, FREE GREGGS?!?!?!
'Ambassador, with these complimentary chicken and mushroom slices you are really spoiling us!'
They did mini-versions of all the key items. Was amazing. as next to a free Subway too. Felt a little sick after all that.
Yeah that sandwich rules, get on it.
I'm not complaining.
We have three greggs in a half mile radius. I call it the Greggs Triangle.
illegal to not have greegs on a saturday.
But our town centre is tiny. You're never more than 30 seconds walk away from a Greggs here. It's a pastry wonderland.
Late night pastry is indeed the greatest thing on earth.
I feel it important to use it at least twice in every sentence.
....went in the sausage roll and you'll be fine
regardless of whats in them
are so, so fine
A pizza in a baguette?
tomato puree spread on one hlaf of a baguette with some cheese melted on top. Calling it pizza is probably going a bit too far, but its still a greasy delight
Cheap and nasty plastic tasting shite.
they taste like sausage.
for a rocket and crayfish bagel and an organic smoothie!
Also,....something about castles.
I've just managed to invent a recipe to make peanut soup for my lunch. It's incredible. On nom nom
this needs a jar o' crunchy peanut butter. AMAZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZING
Greggs down south = turdfood
they just can't make the sausage rolls properly. and don't sell strawberry tarts.
Greggs in Scotland, where the cream goes underneath the strawberry goop in the tart = my idea of heaven.
i always had i tpegged as a northern/middle england thing.
which is kinda the main bit of the Southwest.
Well last time I checked anyway.
Wiltshire, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Smoerset and Bristol forming the rest.
it's not like Newcastle where you'll find at least 2 Greggs on every street. in London, you've got to hunt around a bit for one. then you get all excited when you see the familiar sign, but the second you bite into that pie/sausage roll/cookie, you taste the bitter taste of poor imitation, and a homesick tear rolls from your eye.
and when i got to the middle, something oozed out. i'm not going to fanny around: it looked like spunk. haven't had anything from there since :(
They obviously just picked up the spunky sausage roll by accident. You sure you didnt mumble and say something like "pastry-sausage-jizz latice please"?
"sausage roll. hold the jizz." i remember it clearly
you said "loads of jizz"
i should've expected it, really
I come from the land of the Cornish Pasty and frankly the crap that Greggs serves up is nothing compared to a proper pasty.
Did you know that there are no branches of Greggs in Devon or Cornwall, it's because they would be slayed by all the pasty shops.
At the very least if that's true, it stops Sparks from uttering one of his favourite facts. Now, if we can send Plymouth Argyle into oblivion and erase Kraftwerk from history, we might be able to get a word in edgeways.
Their website says the closest is Tiverton.
very near Finn McCoull's.
they're like the McDonalds of the bakery world, if McDonalds sold inedible pap.
And Greggs is a bit boring.
Bottle of Irn Bru
+ iced bun
+ coke zero
= breakfast of champions
are quite nice - if it wasn't for them they should all be torched.
I'm not sure exactly what the 'meat' consists of but they're still fucking lovely. The Greggs in Ealing doesn't do them though, for which it should be firebombed.
And they are actually a cut above the normal Greggs.
I was a bit miffed when they turned all of the Baker's Ovens in Newcastle into Greggs - it's just not the same.
I live in a small town and we have 4...yes 4 Greggs shops! I mean WTF do we need 4 for? Urgh, greasy pasties and stodgy bread.
I'll bet Kerry Katona has shares in it.
as are their chelsea cheesecakes but the rest is mediocre at best. Then again i'm spoilt for choice for PROPER bakeries, unlike many othger cities esp. London where all u seem to get is Greggs and Pret.
20 GOING IN
but i hate what they've done to the local bekery trade, i'm assuming this has already been mentioned though, so cool.
the only thing i miss about the office job i had right in the middle of town was the fact that there was a greggs right opposite. chicken and honey mustard oval bite and a belgian bun for like 2 quid = incredible
3 sausage rolls for a pound offer they used to run 'back in the day,' I would either be:
b) in far better health than i am today.
that was back in Wales. The economic properties of sausage rolls are somehow.. different there.
Anyhow, the greatness of Greggs is somewhat tempered when you've got the BEIGEL SHOPS MMMMMM down the road.
and cheese and onion pasties are the best things ever. although, i almost always manage to burn my mouth on them.
foot in a Greggs. I don't think I want to. I almost went to the Baker's Oven in Cowley centre the other day but decided against it and went to the Co-op instead where I purchased tiger rolls and Leerdammer and spinach.
