I just found out recently that greggs have frozen goods in Iceland (essentially pies, pasties etc) which are a lot cheaper than their in-store goods (£1.00 for 2 frozen cheese and onion pasties; £1.69 for 2 frozen veggie bakes and most items are generally £1-2)

My question is, how does it taste compared to the stuff you get in stores?

They're pretty decent. Not as good as in store but that could be the kind of ovens they use to cook them. Very good for the price though, wold recommend.

baking at home has a different result on the pastry but agree 100%. yesterday I made some vegan "pulled pork" (jackfruit with bunch of seasoning) and stuffed some in a cheese and onion pasty- the end result was delicious and has given me some recipe ideas.
