Greggs confirms its Festive Bake is coming back in less than two weeks

GREGGS has confirmed the 2020 release date of the much-loved festive bake.

The festive season, which is just around the corner, means the start of several annual favourites returning and hitting the high street again.

In August, Greggs posted on Twitter and Facebook: “If anything can save 2020, it's the Festive Bake #79Days.”

Fans celebrated the announcement with many calling for the release date to be pushed up.

One fan wrote: “We need it this year!” while another said: “Yes! Love a festive bake also looking forward to your pumpkin spiced latte!”

A third said: “Omg I hope I can travel to the UK from the USA for this.”

And a few days ago, the bakery chain reminded fans that the Festive Bake is hitting shops again soon.

With the two week mark landing in November, this means that Greggs' Christmas treat will be back again on November 5.

The Festive Bake, which is typically released once a year at Christmas,  is made from pieces of chicken breast, sage and onion stuffing and sweetcure bacon in a sage and cranberry sauce – all inside a classic puff pastry shell.

The announcement was also met with calls for a vegan version. The chain already has vegan versions of their iconic sausage roll and steak bake which have been a huge hit.

Greggs have yet to confirm how much a festive bake will cost. Last year it was £1.50.

There is also no word on what other festive items will appear on the menu this Christmas.

A Greggs spokesperson said: “2020 has been strange, to say the least.  We’re trying to bring back a little taste of normal, one bake at a time.  After all, what’s more normal than your favourite Greggs order?

"Our much anticipated Festive Bake is back on the menu in November, so aside from all the uncertainty we’re pleased our customers can have a little something they look forward to.”

Greggs is currently indulging in the Autumnal weather by bringing back its Pumpkin Spice latte.

The seasonal drink is made with sweet pumpkin spice-flavoured syrup, topped with cream and sprinkles.

But, like the Festive Bake, it's only on sale for a limited time, until November 5.

So, if you want to seize the chance to grab your own, head down to your nearest Greggs soon.

Several supermarkets have revealed what's on their shelves during this Christmas.
