Greggs said it had received lots of customer requests for more sandwiches to be included in its Meal Deal offer, so has extended its range. Consumers can now purchase selected sandwiches with any crisps and any cold drink for £2.99.

Varieties in Greggs’ new sandwich range include: limited-edition chargrilled chicken with spicy arrabbiata sauce; a new recipe classic chicken salad; classic BLT with sweetcure bacon; tuna mayonnaise and cucumber; and free-range egg mayonnaise with cracked black pepper.
