There’s been so much talk around this, I felt like I had to try it. Although I’ve never been a big sausage roll eater, I have enjoyed the taste in the past but it always caused huge IBS issues so I was quite intrigued by this vegan version. I hadn’t gone out of my way to get one, I’d just told myself that at the next opportunity I’d give one a go.
I was in a bit of a rush having just had a meeting and really needed to grab something to eat on the go, I’d actually popped in here thinking I’d pick up a small sandwich or cereal bar however there wasn’t many options for the vegan eater. It didn’t take me long to remember this is where those famous vegan sausage rolls were produced, there was 2 left. I was second in the queue. It was a tense moment when the lady ahead ordered one – thank god she’d only wanted one! No one wants a brawl in the middle of a busy Gregg’s.
It as warm and the aroma coming from the little bag was amazing. It has been so long since I’d had anything like this and I hadn’t realised how much I would want it once I had it in my hand. I ended up having to eat it on the go, I was really shocked after my first bite and had genuine concerns I’d been given a real sausage roll! It was that close a taste to the real thing, I’d say the texture was ever so slightly different and I didn’t feel that it was as greasy as ones I’ve had in the past – which for me is a bonus. I really enjoyed it, I can’t say I’m hooked but I can understand how some are!
If you’re considering giving this a go, vegan or non vegan I say go for it – you non vegans will be surprised by the taste and I just know you will enjoy it!
