To think that Greggs sausage rolls are shit compared to Coopland ones?

(38 Posts)

I am sat eating a cooplands sausage roll and they are so much nicer than Greggs ones.

Greggs are so watery and nasty tasting where as cooplands are meatier and tastier.

Did I mention you can get 4 for £1 in cooplands? yes I bought 4 and will eat them all

Anyone agree?

I don't know. I've never been to Greggs and certainly not for sausage rolls. grin
No, seriously.

My DS was given Sainsbury's or Tesco ones. smile Only at home. I wouldn't risk getting him seen by a MNetter.

Everythings crap compared to Cooplands. Live too far away now but when I go home I always have a danish pastry. Far superior to any other cake anywhere. Miss them so much sad

Butterfly Cooplands are doing Chocolate orange muffins shock I aim to get one next week.

Cooplands sausage rolls are the best. Also their chocolate toffee Danish pastries are brilliant.

Never seen one "dahn south".

Team Travel up north til you spot one grin

I have no idea what Cooplands is.

I do eat Greggs sausage rolls without one iota of shame however.

Ones from Thomas's aren't too bad.

What is Thomas'?

I saw a pound bakery in town for the first time yesterday. No idea what they are like.

Cooplands? Is it to Booths as Greggs is to Waitrose?

ReginaPhilangie Thu 22-Aug-13 17:29:01

Nah, Sayers sausage rolls are the best, and their pasties are even better!

More like what McDonalds is to Burger King grin

Thomas' is just in North Yorkshire I think. We have one here and a Cooplands. I am looking forward to the school run starting again so I can pop in on the way home.

I'm in West Yorkshire.

never heard of or seen a Cooplands - must not have made it to Scotland either

x2boys Thu 22-Aug-13 17:33:40

I live up north never seen a coopland either?

never heard of Sayers or Thomas's either

x2boys Thu 22-Aug-13 17:35:28

oh we have lots of poundbakerys there ok but too much pastry not enough sausage they do do rather nice cakes however two for a pound bargain!

No Cooplands here, or Pound bakery which I read about on here.
I do live round the corner from Greggs though, and have me the odd sausage roll. Bloody lovely they are.

Ive started buying a bag of 50 mini ones from Tesco, they will be ready in 20 mins, great for snacking, although I was trying not to today as they are 53kcals each, I've put on 21 for me and DC..thanks SP. hmm grin

DiaryOfAWimpyMum Thu 22-Aug-13 17:44:11

I don't have a Coopland either.

Is it the old Co-op?

Was Ainsleys ever down south or in Scotland? Think they took over most old Ainsleys

never heard of Ainsleys either

What's a Coopland. I love a Greggs sausage roll, or a pasty or a pizza bread. I'm not fussy.

Like cooplands but we have a Waterfields two doors away from my front door !!!!

They have a website. I've just checked to see if there is one near me, I do like a greggs steakbake nice pastry. I'm in Harrogate, cooplands only go as far as Leeds, so near yet so far.

Cooplands is way better than Greggs and their Latte is 10p cheaper. And you only have to buy 5 to get a free one - its 9 in Greggs!

Cooplands date slices are lush too, and the cheese straws. Although today one of my colleagues described Greggs new Caramel Pecan biscuit as 'the best 75p I've ever spent'grin

Can you tell I'm on a diet and can't have any if this stuff? blush

But 4 sausage rolls for £1! How much are 4 in Greggs?

I used to like Greggs til they changed the ingredients to 90% water

Thomas's cheese and onion pasties are the best. We in the North are much blessed with bakeries grin

Just looked at the Cooplands website - they have a Bap Van shock

Are they only in Leeds then?

No I'm in Nottingham. Moving jobs soon and no bakery nearby, wonder if I can get the Bap Van to come?

We have a Cooplands in Bridlington, and a Thomas's and 2 Gregg's.

I like Thomas's best. But I think it is a bit more expensive.One of the Greggs is practically on my doorstep.

No, they're in North Yorkshire and North East too. I think they were originally Scarborough-based. The apple pasties are a bargain, two for 79 pence.
