In terms of glow ups, Greggs has had an off-the-chart year. I mean don't even get me going on their vegan sausage rolls. And what's the best way to celebrate an incredible year? Why, with an incredible Christmas menu, of course. And you guys, Greggs' 2019 Christmas offerings are a real insight into celebrating greatness in style.
Screw holly, this year I'm decking the halls with cheese and onion slices. And I'd much rather a snog with a Belgian bun than some damp-mouthed letch under the mistletoe.
Greggs has joined legions of culinary establishments in creating their very own Christmas-themed menu. Let's be real, I feel like you could legitimately hit up a different restaurant, chain, cafe, or sarnie shop in the UK for each day of December and still not run out of options.
Good old Greggs has come through with myriad delicious offerings from savoury to sweet to hot drinks. However, I will say in advance, for a company whose vegan dish was potentially one of the most discussed vegan food goods of 2019, there's nothing vegan available. And their savoury specials all contain meat, so veggies may feel slightly left out too. But luckily Greggs have been hinting at a load of new items to rival their regular meat and dairy laden products, so maybe 2020 will be where it's at.

Ideal for dunking in hot drinks, this is a penguin-shaped caramel biscuit covered in deliciously smooth Belgian milk chocolate.

What's more Christmassy than a ginger biscuit? I would say one that was covered in Belgian Milk chocolate and decorated with sugar ball sprinkles and a sugar paste star.
