What is in a Greggs Festive Bake?

The classic Festive Bake is filled with tasty pieces of chicken, sage and onion stuffing and sweetcure bacon, smothered in a creamy sage and cranberry sauce, and encased in crumb topped pastry.

It contains 453 calories and is priced at £1.60.

This year Greggs has also launched a Vegan Festive Bake, which will be filled with Quorn™ mycoprotein pieces, sage and onion stuffing and a vegan bacon crumb, finished with a sage and cranberry sauce, encased in delicious puff pastry.

The vegan bake contains 449 calories and will be the same price.

What vegan options are there at Greggs?

The new Bake marks yet another addition to the on-the-go retailer’s increasingly popular vegan range, following the 2019 debut of the Vegan Sausage Roll, 2020’s hearty Vegan Steak Bake and the Vegan Sausage, Bean and CheeZe Melt that took customers by storm this summer.

The bakery chain launched its brand-new autumn menu in September, featuring seven fall-themed products.

These included a roast chicken and stuffing baguette and a sticky toffee muffin for those with a sweet tooth – as well as a number of vegan options like vegan bacon and sausage breakfast rolls.

Its famous pumpkin spice latte also made a return, alongside some other winter warmers like spicy chicken and red pepper soup and a pack of hash browns.
