Greggs reveals when the Festive Bake is back AND this time there’s a vegan version

The original Festive Bake, which launched in 2009 and has since gained a cult following, will be joined by the brand-new Vegan Festive Bake following surging public demand for a vegan-friendly take on the Christmas classic.

In 2019 Twitter user @kawaiikhloee vowed: “if we don’t get a vegan festive bake this year I might riot”. Whilst @5ubterranean declared in 2020: “Vegan Festive Bake please I’ll sell my soul”.

The legendary pastry makers finally announced on their social channels this morning the much-anticipated return date of the Festive Bake after fans begged to know when it was coming back. In a shock twist, they also announced the launch of the new Vegan Festive Bake.

Taking inspiration from the original masterpiece, the vegan-friendly version is filled with Quorn™ mycoprotein pieces, sage & onion stuffing and a vegan bacon crumb, finished with a mouth-watering sage & cranberry sauce encased in delicious puff pastry.

Hannah Squirrell, Customer Director at Greggs, said: “The Festive Bake is the latest iconic Greggs Bake to receive a vegan-friendly makeover, and it retains all the classic Christmassy flavours of the original. There’s nothing better over the festive season than tucking into delicious Christmas food, and we’re confident that customers will love our latest tasty Bakes.”

The new Vegan Festive Bake (449kcal, from £1.60) will be available in all Greggs shops across the UK from Thursday 4th November, subject to availability.
