Vegan Sausage Rolls

Recommended Posts

Far too much fuss about it. Just an item of food. No one is being forced to buy or eat it.

Very much meh about the whole thing. People on both sides making mountains out of molehills about it all.

I have no idea why people are so bothered about what others eat. The backlash created by some, no doubt for attention, is more like a 5 year old having a shitfit.

I've grown a liking to some vegan good. Textured Vegetable Protein and tempe are delicious and high in protein.

I agree, but the +1 is for your profile picture.

I love the man. Greatest outfield player I have ever seen at Rovers. Him and Brad Friedel are probably the reason I got into football at all.

If Vegans want something that tastes like a sausage roll and looks like a sausage roll, why not just eat a sausage roll?

Erm, because they are against animal cruelty and/or opt for no cholesterol in their diet?

I think this is more about Greggs product range in a larger market than anything else.

Still, the main reason of like for like substitutes is because of cravings for particular flavours and meals that are imprinted in your brain from years of responding to urges with a particular diet. Anyone who has ever been on holiday where the food is different knows as soon as they come back they long for certain things from their homeland. Anyone who has migrated also knows they begin to miss their homelands foods and often will stick as close to what they know when shopping.

Been a vegetarian all my life, and never been tempted to try meat. If I was, I'd go and have the real thing, instead of a substitute.

 

Vegan meat is one of those urban fads like gluten-free, which will fade away soon.

Pretty sure gluten-free is less of a choice, unlike veganism, as it can cause problems in the body due to intolerance to gluten? I'm not too clued up on it to be honest.

They are shit. Never even warm nevermind hot. 

Greggs is shite in general. They sell these steak slices at my local spar and they are much nicer. The are hot, pastry is nicer and it contains alot more meat. 

Worst are their cold bacon and sausage butties though. Awful place.

Greggs is a poor place to go, in all honesty. The warm food is invariably cold or lukewarm at best and the sausage rolls are vastly overrated.

The baguettes in the fridges aren’t too bad, mind. Though, hugely overpriced as are all sandwiches.

I don't mind greggs' sandwiches but they're hardly a budget option. The more basic options in Pret are a huge jump in quality for only a little more.

Or you can get a meal deal at Sainsbury's or Tesco for better value.

Risking your life in Pret these days mind. :ph34r:

As for this, pretty much what Stan mentioned really. Not really fussed either way and if anything, it offers more choice.

If you've been a vegetarian all your life that is why you have never wanted meat tasting food. If you became one later you probably would

Yeah thats why vanilla ice cream is so popular because it tastes like breast milk.    Enjoy your desert lads

I know someone who's gluten free for medical reasons, coeliacs disease or something. So it's not a diet fad for everyone. I'd probably kill myself if you told me I could never have bread ever again though.

In any case, I don't give a fuck what other people are eating. As long as they're not doing anything eating anything morally depraved, for example cannibalism or eating a pizza with pineapple

To make it worse if you couldn't eat gluten 10 years ago you had to get all of your food on prescription at the pharmacy. You can image what the quality of that was like!

Wow that's extra shit. I feel for those people, especially people who developed the disease later in life... so they remember things like pizza and beer and bread and can never eat them (with gluten again). My mate says the thing he misses the most is bread - there's gluten free bread but it doesn't taste the same apparently. As the son of a baker... I can't even imagine what that's like.
