It's Time To Settle This Sausage Roll Debate Once And For All

This is important.

Posted on

OK! Let's start things off with a scenario. It's Saturday lunchtime, and you're wandering round town.

You decide you want a sausage roll. You can either buy one at the new trendy food market, or at the family bakery in the indoor market.

  1. Which sausage roll do you choose?

If you chose the posh sausage roll, you are wrong.

This is the true and best British sausage roll:

You know the guy: hot, flat, buttery, delicious.

Their natural habitat is Greggs or family bakeries in indoor markets, and they usually cost about 99p or less.

Look at it.

Look at it.

The true British sausage roll can be identified by its flakey, buttery, pastry, and soft, yielding "sausage meat" which is mostly rusk, salt, and spices.

Greggs sausage rolls, for instance, only contain 18% pork and this is absolutely as it should be!

That's why they're so yum.

But this magestic British snack is under threat from a dangerous imposter: the posh sausage roll.

Look at the price of it!

Look at the price of it!

Posh, aka hipster, sausage rolls are too large, too expensive, contain far too much actual meat, and too many fancy herbs.

They are just too posh for their own good.

They are just too posh for their own good.

As they become more and more common, they put our 99p beauties at risk of extinction.

£5.50 for a sausage roll? I'm over it all ready

We must not let the glorious 99p indoor market sausage roll go extinct.

Look how greasy it makes your fingers! Look at that lovely, rusky filling!
