The countdown is on until the new Festive Bake is back on the shelves

Not only is my initial bite of the molten hot pouch of goodness my first indication that Christmas is upon us (forget the John Lewis advert), but it's also a simple reminder that sometimes, the best things in life are the most simple, like a delicious pastry stuffed with the taste of Yuletide.

And for all of you other Festive Bake fans out there, a website has now been created with a ticking down clock to the moment that the Festive Bakes returns to the shelves of different Greggs stores up and down the country.

Packed full of 100% chicken breast, sage and onion stuffing and sweetcure bacon and mixed with a delicious sage, cranberry and red onion relish, these flaky baked goods leave your local panto looking like a summer event.

So, when is it back, I hear you ask.

If you just have to know how many paydays it is until you can enjoy a taste of heaven, then visit the countdown timer by heading overt to Make sure to take note of the tab title when it opens in your browser, too.

If the countdown timer is correct, and there's no reason to think it won't be, the Festive Bake will be available to purchase on November 9.

I'll meet you in the queue.
