Greggs traditional sausage rolls are the bakery chain's best-selling items

Greggs - renowned for the mass sale of traditional pork sausage rolls - announced that its new quorn version would be on sale from today.

But Greggs stores in South Road, Haywards Heath, and Market Place, Burgess Hill, have none of the new vegan rolls on sale this morning.

Bosses at the bakery chain say that their vegan-version roll has been designed to mirror the classic original with layers of puff pastry, made with vegetable oil, and a bespoke Quorn filling.

However, as the nation tucks into the new savoury treat, people in Mid Sussex have been left wondering just how it tastes.

Greggs launched the new product after 20,000 people signed a petition by animal welfare organisation Peta calling on Greggs to produce a vegan version of its best-selling item.
