Greggs Thread

Im interested to see what people post in this thread.

As a native of Tyneside, Greggs holds a special place in my heart as being such a successful local business.

The Stottie cake is one of mans finest creations (although I dont know which parts of the UK you can get them in?)

Bought greggs frozen bakes and sausage rolls from iceland so after work I don’t need to nip into town if I fancy a pasty. (I live in the middle of nowhere)

They taste good but not quite as good as the instore ones but for the price and the connivance they are very good.

My hand seems to be a super strange colour in the picture.

Had Gregg’s yesterday for the first time since lockdown hit. It’s back on Deliveroo here. Vegan sausage roll and vegan steak bake :yum:

Vegan stake bake is disappointing, I’m just about to walk down to petrol station to get 2 vegan sausage rolls, hoping they’re still open at this time on a covid Sunday

It’s pretty good for saying its not meat on how good it is.

I only had one to try it and if I was vegan or vegetarian I could eat that over my usual sausage bean and cheese melt.

It’s all about options which is super nice.

Result it was open scored 2 vegan sausage rolls

I’m interested to see what Greggs do when the 5% VAT rate comes into play - will this saving be passed on ?

Love vegan sausage rolls

Do they want Ed miliband back over greggs VAT again?

I’m not a Greggs customer (nothing against them they just don’t sell anything I want) but I wouldn’t have any issue with them keeping the difference for themselves. They have treated their employees so well throughout this entire situation and I think their current prices are pretty fair anyway. Personally I’d rather see businesses pocket the extra cash and use it to reduce store closures/redundancies.

If they pay it as a staff bonus fair dues but just pocketing it is what will happen.

I don’t believe so. The VAT cut is supposed to help businesses, and I don’t see how that happens if they pass it on and put themselves back in the same effective position as before the cut.

Cheaper prices incentivising more of the unsure customers to return and even spend more (“go on then, I can afford another sausage roll”)

That’s the idea but I wouldn’t like to give odds on which business will go for which option (keep or pass on).

The steak/chicken bakes are quite nice. The only thing is the damn things take way too long to cook.

5/10 mins to warm up the oven and then 25 mins in the oven, about 30/35 mins overall. For a small pasty bake! A frozen pizza takes about 20 mins!

Kinda defeats the point of them being ‘fast food’
