Ya see, I don't think so! I reckon there are loads of MNers who say on a thread 'oh no, I don't let my children eat Greggs', but really they do!grin

Bad weather?
More likely those dodgy TV ads.

Carmenere Thu 09-Oct-08 20:25:14

I would say their dire advertising campaign might have something to do with it.

Yes those dodgy ads take some beating...but I lurve their chicken and mango sarnie.

I like their sandwiches (and chocolate muffins grin) but genuinely wouldn't give ds a sausage roll to munch on.

MOrticiaAdams Thu 09-Oct-08 20:33:18

They are lovely!!! You don't know what you're missing! Its something you've just gotta try in your life! grin

Whats wrong with those scrummy sausage rolls mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

There used to be a pie-shop in salisbury that sold cheese-and-onion-and-potato pies, and curry slices. Greggs don't.

I miss them...

The whole Gregs thing has always gone straight over my head - I live in a part of the country (apparently the only part of teh country) where there is no Greggs. I will never be able to pass judgement on the quality of their sausage rolls and feel robbed, frankly.

MOrticiaAdams Thu 09-Oct-08 20:43:58

Aw, Hassled! That's sad! You won't know about their Steak Bakes either then? They're mighty fine too! grin

NappiesLaGore Thu 09-Oct-08 20:46:41

Hassled there's no Greggs around here either

I do lurve a good sausage roll though <drool>

AMumInScotland Thu 09-Oct-08 20:49:44

And chicken bakes....mmmm....chicken bakes....

Overmydeadbody Thu 09-Oct-08 20:49:46

yes quite, Malory.

I have bought some green ones instead.

Hassled Thu 09-Oct-08 20:51:48

Good to know I'm not alone - but if I ever see a Greggs I will be in there eating sausage rolls before you can say "cholesterol" .

SnoopDog Thu 09-Oct-08 20:52:38

has anyone read the comments at the bottom of the article?

this one made me chuckle,

No wonder...they should call em grease rolls instead of sausage rolls! Not a healthy thing inside the shop. I'm fussy about what I put in my cakey hole! I'd rather eat dog turd, it least it maight have some vitamins in it.

and this is a gem,

Their profits are down because their shop assistants stand with one finger picking their nose and another scratching their ass before they serve you.

grin

Could just eat a steak bake mmmmmm

I used to feel like you, Hassled. I had no clue what all this Gregg's stuff on MN was about. But over the summer I went to Perth in Scotland, a town I know well, and there in the High St was a new shop called Gregg's. 'What's this, then?' I said to myself, going over for a gander. 'Ah, it's got cakes and bread in, must be a baker's, that's nice.' Then &~#~**OMG**~#~& Baker's!!!! Gregg's!!!!! I bet it's a sausage roll shop!!! At last!!! I can hold my head up high on MN!!! I too have seen a Gregg's! But they didn't seem to actually have any sausage rolls. Maybe they'd sold out over lunch. grin

MOrticiaAdams Thu 09-Oct-08 21:08:05

Oh, who cares about vitamins! Greggs is loverly!!!!grin

TeenyTinyTorya Thu 09-Oct-08 22:50:00

I think the sausage rolls are soggy and horrible actually. I do love the treacle scones though - can you tell I have a sweet tooth lol!
