Greggs has delighted fans with the return of his 2021 festive bake – which has gone vegan this year.
The original Festive Bake, which launched in 2009 and has since gained a cult following, will be joined by the brand new Vegan Festive Bake following rising public demand for a vegan version of the Christmas classic.
The classic Festive Bake is filled with delicious chicken pieces, sage & onion filling and sweetcure bacon, smothered in a creamy sage & cranberry sauce and covered in delicious shortcrust pastry.
Inspired by the original masterpiece, the vegan version is filled with Quorn™ chunks of mycoprotein, sage and onion filling and vegan bacon crumbs, finished with a delicious sage and cranberry sauce enrobed in delicious puff pastry.
Both treats cost £1.60 and will be available nationwide from November 4.
