Greggs has unveiled six additions to its sandwich range, including its first-ever vegan sandwich.
A vegan-friendly Mexican Bean Wrap has been added to the Balanced Choice range, along with a Tandoori Chicken Wrap, a Mexican Chicken Wrap and a Chicken Jalfrezi Sub Roll.
All items in Balanced Choice, which includes porridge, a Katsu Chicken Bake and salads, come in at under 400 calories and carry either a green or amber traffic light.
The wrap was tested by consumers late last month as Greggs went undercover at a London food festival as artisan deli Gregory and Gregory.
Two further sandwiches have been added to Greggs’ normal range, while some of its other sandwich recipes have been updated, including the Tuna Crunch Baguette which has been redeveloped to add crunch and improve flavour, according to Greggs.
The new items will be available from tomorrow (Thursday 14 June).
All the sandwiches can be bought as part of a meal deal with a hot or cold drink for £3, however sugar taxable drinks, speciality lattes, soups and cold-pressed juices are excluded.
The full new range comprises:
Vegan Mexican Bean Wrap (345 calories)
This soft tortilla wrap is filled with mixed beans, sweetcorn and mixed peppers smothered in a spicy tomato sauce, spicy guacamole and chipotle chilli sauce with salad leaves.
Tandoori Chicken Wrap (340 calories)
Roast chicken breast in a tandoori-style mayonnaise, served with mango chutney, cucumber and salad leaves in a soft tortilla wrap.
Mexican Chicken Wrap (332 calories)
The third and final new wrap on Greggs’ menu features Mexican-style chicken breast, mixed peppers, chipotle chilli sauce and chipotle mayonnaise as well as salad leaves.
Chicken Jalfrezi Sub Roll (374 calories)
This sub roll contains chicken breast, chickpeas and red onion in a Jalfrezi-style mayonnaise, paired with mango chutney and salad leaves.
Mature Cheddar Cheese Ploughman’s Oval Bite (508 calories)
Greggs’ version of the classic sarnie features Cheddar cheese with a caramelised onion and ale chutney, finished with crunchy red onion, cucumber, tomato and salad, all served in a seeded Oval Bite roll.
Chicken Caesar Oval Bite (566 calories)
This Oval Bite roll is filled with chicken breast covered in a Caesar-style dressing with sweetcure bacon, Italian-style hard cheese, mayonnaise and salad.
Greggs’ first vegan wrap comes a few months after animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) UK launched a petition calling for the food-to-go business to add a vegan sausage roll to its menu.
