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?

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.

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

Are they only in Leeds then?

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

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

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

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

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.

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

never heard of Ainsleys either

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

I don't have a Coopland either.

Is it the old Co-op?

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.

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

ilovepowerhoop Thu 22-Aug-13 17:33:08

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

I'm in West Yorkshire.

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.

More like what McDonalds is to Burger King grin

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

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

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