Greggs the bakers finally have some gluten free goodies coming out, unfortunately they are not as exciting as some of their regular products.
After months of hearing that Greggs are planning on releasing a gluten free range, it is finally starting to happen! We caught wind earlier today that some products were going to be released into Greggs stores as early as next week but being ever sceptical we asked Greggs on Twitter and they confirmed that what we heard was indeed true.
So keep your eyes out, from 20th September Gluten Free Chocolate Brownies and Toffee Popcorn Crispie bars will be available in Greggs stores, these sweet choices will be individually wrapped to prevent cross contamination and Greggs said themselves a few months back they would only release Gluten Free items if they could produce them safely in the factories and avoid cross contamination, so I think it is safe to assume that they managed to do that.
At the same time of hearing about the release date we also heard rumours of a price, it is believed that they will cost £1, though we're not sure whether this is for one or a multi pack though, I'd guess that we will find out next week!
Greggs have said that they are hoping to do savoury items, but these don't seem to be included in this first release, so fingers crossed sandwiches or something get released at a later date when they get an idea of how well a gluten free line will sell. We will update you with more information when we find it out.
