THERE’s not one delicious pastry or sugar-laden item on the new summer menu from Greggs.
Of course, the bakery chain will still sell its much-loved sausage rolls, bacon butties and jam-filled doughnuts, but it’s now focusing on “lighter” options.
It’s all part of its switch to attract new customers, in particular, those who want healthier options.
This includes not one but three “cold press” juices, which sound super fancy and are contain one of your five-a-day.
They have between 98 and 108 calories each and cost £1.75 and are designed to appeal to fans of the raw food trend.
Last month, The Sun Online revealed Greggs was adding low-calorie salads to its shelves and they make up much of the new menu.
These include a coconut, lime and chilli chicken salad, as well as a new cheese, tomato and basil pasta salad.
All the new salads are under 400 calories and cost £3 each.
Other items include a coconut chilli chicken wrap, which is topped with roasted veg, couscous and pearl barley and costs £2.60. Greggs classes this as an “exotic” option.
While its egg mayonnaise, sunblush tomato and spinach baguette also costs £2.60 but waistline watchers should beware as it has a whopping 586 calories.
In February, the chain opened its first ever “healthy” shop in New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton.
It focuses on selling soups, salads and porridge pots, rather than the pastry favourites.
But whether the new leafy and green items are success, only time will tell.
In March, Greggs’ boss said that it sold more sausage rolls last year than any other items, while its frothy Italian latte coffee was the third bestseller.
I can’t see the bakery chain turning its back on pastry just yet though, thankfully.
