Two steak bake socks and a sausage roll face mask please…
It may be your third service station stop before 8am, or perhaps you only left the club four hours ago and your alcohol-ridden insides are crying out for a steak bake, or maybe you just really, really crave a sausage roll to carry you through to the end of your shift. Whatever it is, Greggs has stood by our nation’s side for over-eighty years; their heart-warming and delectable baked goods remain a favourite amongst us Brits.
Now, the public can express their love for Greggs without consuming a nearly-500 calories Sausage, Bean and Cheese Bake (not that you should stop yourself). How? Well, delve into the world of Greggs merchandise.
Back in Christmas 2018, Greggs released their own limited-edition range of festive-themed merchandise for their customers. The collection included an umbrella, steak bake themed phone case, reusable cup, Christmas jumper, socks, badges, and a gift card worth £50. The company haven’t disclosed whether their festive range of merchandise will be making a return, but keep your eyes peeled during the Christmas period. For now, Redbubble and Etsy (both websites that allow members of the public to sell their own designs and work) are accumulating a Greggs’ merchandise range that is vast, humorous and makes perfect gifts for loved ones.
The sausage roll bedding set

Thanks, Redbubble… there is no doubt the sheets would inspire some conversation starters at least.
The sausage roll facemask

For £9.73, you could be the proud owner of this interesting fashion statement (or perhaps the statement is just of your obsession with Greggs).

Girls don’t want boys, girls want pastries from Greggs

Just make sure one doesn’t wind its way up in Piers Morgan’s letterbox!
Steak bake socks
The best ought to be saved till last. For £16.11 (payday treat?) you could be donning your own pair or Greggs’ steak bake socks to show off to the Highstreet. Purchased from online store, Redbubble, your toes will be kept as warm as the combi- ovens in a Greggs’ kitchen – street-cred, on the other hand, may not remain as hot whilst these eccentric socks are out in public.
