Greggs has confirmed the removal of a popular candy from hundreds of its stores – leaving fans devastated.
The bakery chain has removed its bread pudding amid the coronavirus pandemic and has now announced it won’t be returning to stores any time soon.
Bread pudding is sold in hundreds of Greggs branches across the south of England.
In a response to fans on Twitter, the high street food giant said the popular dessert was being given a “well-deserved break”.
One Greggs fan said on Twitter: “What’s going to happen to the world? Just found out Greggs doesn’t make bread pudding anymore. That’s crazy.”
Do you want Greggs to bring bread pudding back? Let us know in the comments below.
And another added: “Can you please explain why there was no bread pudding in the Yarmouth store this week? Your staff member has hinted that bread pudding is permanently off the menu! This is very worrying.”
A third person said: “I would really like to [know] why did you remove bread pudding from the menu and when is it coming back?
A fourth simply tweeted: “Please bring back bread pudding.”
Greggs replied to a customer in a tweet: “We regularly look at our range so we keep up to date with what our customers want.
“After completing our last review, we made the decision to give this one a well-deserved rest. Just to let you know, this may not be a permanent change.”
A Greggs spokesman told The Mirror: “Our bread puddings have been out of stores for over two years but there is a wide range of delicious, sweet products for our customers to enjoy.”
Bread pudding is made from stale bread soaked in a mixture of milk, sugar, and eggs, and then baked.
In other Greggs news, the bakery giant has announced it will be opening a store in Leicester Square, central London, this year.
The store is still under construction, and a cheeky construction fence hiding the construction site looks like a massive Greggs steak casserole.
The exact opening date has not yet been announced.
The new MegaGreggs at 1 Leicester Square will be adjacent to M&M World and close to neighbors such as the Odeon and the Lego Megastore.
The opening is part of Greggs’ plan to go upscale, with recent openings at The Strand, Canary Wharf, Paddington, St Pancras Station and Kings Cross.
Greggs will open around 150 new stores across the UK over the next year, bringing the total number of stores to just under 2,500.
