Greggs Vegan Sausage Roll Review

21 January 2020

Hello, me again, with yet another Becca the non-vegan tries a vegan product post. I hope you're not getting bored of these because I for one am really enjoying putting them together. (In other words, I'm loving having a legitmate excuse to try alllll the vegan junk food.)

For today's post, we have the much anticipated, much discussed Greggs Vegan Sausage Roll. The piece of beige that split the country down the middle, with half being all for it and the other half seeing its creation as a true crime. I'm sure you don't need me to clarify which side I was on, but, just in case it wasn't clear, it was the former!

Greggs Vegan Sausage Roll Review 

I mentioned in my Steak Bake review that I'd never actually had a steak bake before and you guys didn't seem too disappointed, but how will you react when I say I've never been a massive sausage roll fan... Now, let me clarify - I LOVE the mini sausage rolls that you bake at home (especially when they're warm) but I've always had a bit of a thing against giant sausage rolls. We all know the pastry is the best part, and I'm just not a massive fan of the pink meaty mush that you usually get in the middle, especially when it's cold! Alas, a sausage roll with the same delicious pastry that we know and love but no pink meaty mush?! A dream come true. 

The Greggs Vegan Sausage Roll costs a mere pound and is a very decent size. The one thing I would say though is that these are rather difficult to come across, I'm going to guess it's due to Veganuary and them being DELICIOUS but these always seemed to be sold out in my local area! Greggs, if you're reading this, up your ordering pls, this gal needs her pastry fix and would simultaneously also like to try and help the planet too. 

I'm going to give you no prizes for guessing who produces the 'sausage' in this sausage roll... Yep, it's Quorn, and it's another resounding success in my books. It's got a great texture, is full of flavour and isn't too greasy, wahey! Again, this doesn't particularly taste like a normal sausage roll, you can definitely tell it's a substitute but it's certainly tasty nonetheless. The day that you can't tell a substitute from the real thing will be a fantastic day, but until then Quorn will more than suffice!   

In my opinion, this product 1000% deserves all the hype it receives, it's genuinely pretty sexy and I hope to be chowing down on another one very soon. (If I can get my hands on one, that is. People of Bournemouth, please leave one for me!)

There's one more vegan product that I know that I want to try - Subway, I'm looking at you and your meatball marinara - but which others would you like me to give a go? Are there any others that you've heard about that are meant to be incredible? If so, send me a message on Instagram or comment below - I'd love any recommendations! So far, my least favourite of the ones I've tried is Pizza Hut's Vegan Pepperoni Pizza by far, I really wasn't a fan!
