PIERS Morgan was furious. Carnivores were livid. Guardianistas were thrilled.

There were a huge range of reactions when bakery chain Greggs revealed it would launch a vegan sausage roll earlier this year.

And now Dorset residents can try the snack for themselves to find out if it's been remotely worth the fuss.

As part of a new (sausage) roll out, the treat is now available at a host of bakeries across the area. It will soon be available at every Greggs branch.

Here's a list of the places where you can buy it now.


60 Old Christchurch Road, Bournemouth

619 Christchurch Road, Boscombe


Euro Garage, Rossmore

40-41 Dolphin Centre, Poole

The company sells 1.5m traditional sausage rolls a week. Its non-meat version has 96 layers of puff pastry made with vegetable oil and a 'bespoke' Quorn filling.

The launch followed strong consumer demand, including a petition by PETA last year, which was signed by more than 20,000 people.

It's been designed to mirror some of the sausage roll’s classic features, including 96 layers of light and crisp puff pastry, but is made with a Quorn filling and priced at £1.

And soon, it'll be available for customers at every Greggs store in the UK, not just a select number (which is currently around 950 UK-wide).

The new roll out will see an additional 250 shops per week selling the vegan sausage roll until it is eventually available everywhere by Friday, March 8.

And if you can't wait till then, you can use this store finder to see which stores are currently selling them.
