Stuck for an original idea for this year’s Christmas jumper day? Well, we’ve got you covered – introducing the Greggs festive knit.

The quorn-filled pastry polarised the nation back in January, with Piers Morgan predictably leading the revolt. Nevertheless, many praised the savoury bake for staying true to the original and remaining good value for money, while one Vice review even enjoyed the faux-gristle texture.

The blue knit features golden sausage rolls alongside, with the bakery’s name adorned across the front in white. In case you worried it wasn’t quite the festive jumper you were after, the makers added lots of snowflakes to give it that Christmassy feel.

The Greggs-cellent jumper was created by social enterprise Not Just, the people who brought us the iconic Gareth Southgate waistcoat jumper in 2018 and, most recently, the Brexit knit.

You could say, they’re on a bit of a roll.
