I'm taking a walk round to Greggs


#1

Going for lunch. Updates to follow.


#2

I did this but upgraded it to a Birds. Probably the finest tuna and cucumber sandwich I’ve had.


#3

I’ll take a Belgian bun please.


#4

Could go for a sausage, bean and cheese melt now :yum:


#5

Birds sausage cob!


#6

Salted caramel doughnut please mate


#7

Yum yums pls


#8

What? When did this happen?


#9

They’ve had them the last couple of times I’ve been in (most recently was about a month ago). Custard doughnut with salted caramel icing - Well nice.


#10

The caramel custard doughnut is one of my faves so I welcome this new addition.


#11

Used to work at Greggs

A customer called me a cunt on my first day


#12

pineapple cake, cheers


#13

Two sausage rolls and an empire biscuit to follow. Got some beans on the hob to go with the sausage rolls, and I’m going to have a glass of irn bru with it all. £2.40 was the expenditure in Greggs (90p for each sausage roll, 60p for the biscuit).


#14

They do gift cards now! Going to make that my standard wedding present for people from now on.


#15

Going home tomorrow night, will be on the menu.


#16

Empire biscuit sounds a bit Brexity…

Fully on board with 2 sausage rolls though, although I prefer a pasty and sausage roll combo myself.

According to Wikipedia

The biscuit was originally known as the “Linzer Biscuit”, and later the “Deutsch Biscuit”. With the outbreak of World War I in England it was renamed to Empire biscuit,in Scotland it was renamed a Belgian biscuit because Belgium had just been invaded, but in Northern Ireland it remains known as the German Biscuit or biscuit bun. In Northern Ireland it is commonly found with a jam and coconut topping. It is also known as the “Belgian biscuit”, due to being topped in a similar way to a Belgian bun made of pastry or dough.
