Greggs tease possibility of controversial new bake – sparking furious debate – Mirror Online
12 January 2019 MUSIC
If you thought Greggs’ vegan sausage roll was divisive, the possibility of this new bake would almost certainly cause outrage among some people.
Greggs has continued to court controversy by teasing the idea of a ham and pineapple bake on Twitter yesterday, reigniting the classic debate over whether the two ingredients belong together.
The bakery chain posted a diagram of new menu options, with suggestions including “Fish + Chips”, “Chicken Pot Bake” and “Apple Bake”, but the most noticeable, highlighted with a box drawn around it is “Ham and Pineapple”.
The image was shared with the caption “If you could invent a new bake with ANY filling, what would you choose?”
Naturally, the post received a very mixed reaction.
One said: “literally anything other than ham and pineapple you heathens”.
Another agreed: “If ham and pineapple flavours come to Greggs I’ll never go there again”.
A third said: “If you’re actually serious about ham and pineapple, I’m afraid it’ll be a national emergency”.
Of course, much like in real life, plenty of people would be huge fans of the ham and pineapple bake.
One wrote: “I would be ALL OVER a ham and pineapple one what a dream”.
People took the opportunity to suggest their own ideas for new Greggs recipes.
After the success of the vegan sausage roll, many suggested more vegan options such as vegan, sausage, bean and cheese.
One person suggested a vegan steak bake so they can see “Piers Morgan’s head explode”.
The GMB presenter has previously expressed his exasperation with the new addition to the menu, even spitting a bite out into a bin on the ITV breakfast show.
Despite criticism the launch of the vegan sausage roll appears to have been popular so far, as the product sold out in multiple shops on the first day.
