Calling all Greggs fans!



The high street food bosses are set to release a treat-filled limited-edition advent calendar on November 20th, billing it as ‘the ultimate Christmas gift for every Greggs fan’. :woo:

Behind each door is a tear-off token that can be exchanged for a different treat every day from the Greggs Christmas or everday menu, including the Festive Bake, flavoured lattes, mince pies and sausage rolls (of course).

On Christmas Eve, a £5 gift card sits behind door 24 – but for some lucky customers they will find a surprise £25 gift card.

A limited number of the calendars will go on sale in selected Greggs’ shops across the UK from Monday 20th November until stocks last. But what's the catch? Well, it costs at £24...

Would you buy a Greggs advent calendar?

Or, more importantly, would you spend £24 on the calendar? (it's supposedly worth between £35 - £60...)

Ha! I work at Greggs and this is the first I'm hearing of this, obviously I wouldn't buy it myself because I already get the discount and eat enough of it as it is. It is a good idea for a gift for the really dedicated lovers though.

Haha! Looks like you get a lot of discount... Do you think £24 is a worthy price? :scrooge:

I’d totally buy it if I had £24 but since I’m eternally poor maybe not :getmecoat:

£24 is a lot to spend on an advent calendar, I'd only buy it if I knew the person was actually going to go into Greggs every day and get the food/drink

Step 1. Buy one.
Step 2. Sell it after some time has passed for a higher price.
Step 3. ???
Step 4. Profit!

Spoiler:
Show

Seriously, though, I would not spend £24 on a calendar anyway. :laugh:

The perfect excuse to have a sausage roll every day for 23 days, what a delicious idea.

they could make a calendar with actual sausage rolls behind the doors for people who do not live near a Greggs. it would be quite big but fun.

That might start smelling bad come Christmas Day.
