Anyone had one? The hype has been wild!

I got one today though and I have to say it was pretty good, still thinking about it now grin

I had one yesterday - it was ok - I wouldn’t go out of my way to have another!

It is quite high in calories and fat I think I’ll mostly be having it as a treat.

I tried to get one today but our Greggs isn’t doing them.

I'm doing veganuary and had one today. For any long term vegans who haven't tasted meat in a long time, it tastes just like a meat sausage roll.

Less fat and higher protein than the meat sausage roll. I'd actually recommend that omnivores should always buy it over the meat version.

Haven't had one yet but will try one when I'm there next.

My dd had one today amd let me have a bite. I thought it tasted a bit like bacon...she was not amused

It's really nice. Obviously not one for everyday, but great as an occasional treat.

Is it the same as the quorn ones you buy in Tesco?

Yeah, I had one on Saturday. I liked it.
I got a message from my friend asking if I had tried one yet as he had and he liked it as well.

I really enjoyed the one I had yesterday. It tasted 99% like the meat one

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Mon 07-Jan-19 20:21:29

It's better than the Quorn ones, because it's hot and the pastry is tastier.

Had one the day they came out, largely by accident - I thought it tasted just like a normal Greggs sausage roll (am not vegan). Vegan DH thought it was v tasty, but has been veggie since he was a child so hasn’t had a meaty Greggs to compare grin

They keep selling out in ours. We were pretty disappointed after trying 2 greggs in one day and not finding one. But then we went to warrens (who really should publicise their vegan pasties more) and all was good!

The nearest Greggs to me that sells them is about 30 miles away sad But I'm seriously considering making the journey!

Yes was delicious but will be strictly hang over food as trying to lose weight

notacooldad Mon 07-Jan-19 21:02:33

They are nice with brown sauce!

Finally had one today thought it was really nice for a treat.

Is it the same as the quorn ones you buy in Tesco?

Quorn is a brand name and they have teamed up with Greggs to make the sausage roll. Quorn is the brand with the orange colour packets.

I wanted one but they'd run out

cushioncovers Fri 18-Jan-19 09:56:00

Yep my local store had run out as well.

Apparently there’s a nationwide shortage, the factory can’t make them quick enough, but Greggs have said they’re going to roll them out to all stores.

Worth the wait imo.. Never eaten a meat one tbh. Much better than other Quorn products. Well done Greggs!!
