Lovers of Greggs in the South West are in for a savoury treat, as it has been announced that the Greggs Vegan Sausage Roll Truck will be stopping in Bristol on its tour of the UK this Veganuary.
The Greggs vegan sausage roll has been the subject of some controversy recently, after it was revealed that it does not have any meat in it.
The Bristol Bugle can also exclusively reveal that the vegan sausage roll does not contain any milk, cheese, spam, honey or hard boiled eggs.
The Greggs Vegan Sausage Roll Truck will be stopping at Cribbs Causeway car park, near the bins, on Sunday 27 January.
As well as having a chance to take a selfie with the iconic vehicle, Greggs fans will be given a free miniature vegan sausage roll, a souvenir Greggs paper bag to store it in and the opportunity to sit on Father Greggsmas’s knee.
Public opinion is divided on whether introducing a meat-substitute filled pastry cylinder into our Greggs bakeries should be encouraged.
“I guess it is an option, if it tastes nice,” said Zach, 28, vegan.
Katie, 35, non-vegan said, however: “I guess, if it tastes nice, it is an option.”
A spokesperson for Greggs has confirmed that any concerned non-vegans would be given the option to ‘opt out’ of the vegan sausage roll by not buying it.
