Ahead of Veganuary next month, your favourite meat-filled puff pastry is getting a revamp.
This just in – Greggs will be selling vegan sausage rolls in 2019. A contradiction in terms, perhaps, but fabulous news for vegans across the UK nonetheless.
The rumours of a meat-free roll have been circulating for quite a few years, but thanks to PETA, we have some fresh intel.
An email leak, featuring a message sent from a Greggs representative, allegedly said: Were really excited about the launch of the Vegan Sausage Roll as we know you and our customers will be too.
Earlier in the year, PETA started a petition, which attracted 20,000 signatures, urging the bakery chain to offer a vegan alternative to the popular food.
Greggs is yet to officially confirm the news, but introduced a vegan dish in May – the Mexican Bean Wrap – so it feels only natural that the British staple should follow.
Safe to say, some people are pretty excited about the potential of a vegan roll.
My entire life rn is just waiting for Greggs to release the vegan sausage roll
