'A couple of children press their noses up against the counter filled with a creamy array of sticky buns and colourful biscuits'

Presumably before launching into a rendition of 'Consider Yourself'? grin

Anyway - they can keep their sausage rolls. The cheese & onion or steak slices on the other hand.......

I am a relatively new MNer and struggle to understand some of the vitrol on here. Why are Greggs and their sausage rolls so loathed?

Greggs sausage roll ( and fruit shoot) is MN shorthand for bad parent. It's tongue in cheek though.. I hope.

DD used to love the sausage rolls when she was little, and I used to let her have them in her buggy, purely to see the look on other Mums faces grin

Last week I had a cheese and onion pasty and a chocolate cream doughnut. Lovely they were too.

Oh now I never gave her Froot Shoots, that would have been going Too Far grin
