The bakery held a giveaway in Leeds on Wednesday ahead of the reintroduction of the Christmas pasty to bakeries across the country.

And following last year's popularity the chain will be again selling pigs in blankets, and Christmas lunch soup.

Other Christmas treats include a “pigs under blankets” baguette, a cheese and chutney toastie and a “snowy road” dessert.

Greggs' Christmas menu has launched

The festive bake has become such a Christmas staple that Greggs has even created a countdown website, for fans who just can’t wait to get their hands on one.

The pastry pockets contain chicken, sage and onion stuffing, and bacon in a creamy sage and cranberry sauce, topped with a crunchy crumb coating.

They will return to Greggs stores from Thursday November 8, along with the rest of the festive menu. And they will cost £1.50 – the same as last year.

The pigs in blanket pots will set you back £2, and the pigs under blankets baguette costs £3.

Greggs has set up the website, and now it is!

The bakery is bringing back its traditional Christmas lunch sandwich and Christmas lunch soup, and is already selling mince pies for 50p a pop.

New to the menu are three festive hot drinks. A salted caramel latte, mint mocha and mint hot chocolate will be available for £2.20 each.
