One of the greatest joys of Christmas is indulging in all the festive food of the season.
While turkey, roast potatoes, veg and gravy may be the crowning dish, there are plenty of other seasonal treats to enjoy in between – including the return of Greggs Christmas menu.
Festive Bakes are back
The popular Christmas menu has made its long-awaited return and is available to buy in Greggs stores nationwide from today (7 Nov).
Fans of the bakery chain can tuck into the likes of pigs in blankets, Christmas lunch soup and the famous Festive Bake, among a number of hot drinks and new sweet treats for 2019.
The festive favourite is made up of chicken breast, sage and onion stuffing, and sweet cured bacon in a creamy sage and cranberry sauce, encased in a golden puff pastry with a crunchy crumb topping.
The bake is priced at £1.55 and contains 453 calories.
As well as a number of savoury items – including a Christmas sandwich, baguette and warming soup – there are a range of sweet options which will be available from 14 and 18 November.
Among the delights are indulgent tiffin bites, made with pieces of biscuit, shortbread and sultanas, enveloped in a Belgian dark chocolate and topped with Belgian milk chocolate.
There will also be an array of delicious novelty biscuits, Christmas cake and a Christmas vanilla flavoured fairy ring bun, decorated with fondant icing and sugar sprinkles.
