I interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you an important piece of foodie-related information: Greggs is now selling burritos. Yes, you heard that right. GREGGS IS SELLING BURRITOS. This is not a drill, people.
For those of you that love to devour the delicious Mexican export on a regular basis, but are sick of paying the extortionate prices that they’re so often sold for, this is pretty much the best news since sliced bread. Which, coincidentally, Greggs also sells.
So what’s going to be filling these brand new burritos, and will they fit in with our not-so-strict diet plans? Take a look below for the full breakdown, along with each wrap’s all important calorie count.
Chipotle Pulled Beef Burrito (428 calories)
Pulled Fajita beef, a smokey tomato rice and bean mix, sliced peppers, red onion, mature cheddar cheese, and chipotle chilli jam.
Fiery Pulled Chicken Burrito (426 calories)
Pulled Fajita chicken, a smokey tomato rice and bean mix, sliced peppers, red onion, Monterey Jack chilli cheese, crème fraiche dressing, and sliced jalapeños.
Onion Bhaji Burrito (445 calories)
Onion bhajis, a smokey tomato rice and bean mix, sliced peppers, red onion, Monterey Jack chilli cheese, mango chutney, yoghurt, and mint.
Of course, some of the grumpy old people of Twitter weren’t so keen on the new announcement. But hey, you can’t please everyone. Some people just want to put Greggs in a box labelled “sausage rolls” and be done with it.
Not that you’d usually catch me saying a bad word against Greggs, but I don’t count anything that doesn’t contain a healthy dose of guacamole a burrito. But then, I’m the kind of person who would happily eat at this guacamole restaurant 24/7 for the rest of my life.
