WE’VE ALL heard about Gregg’s Vegan Sausage Roll.
In fact we’ve heard about it… and heard about it… and heard about it.
But with Ireland’s distinct lack of the UK-based pastie-shop, the market was wide open for cruelty-free treats in the Republic—and the chance has been snapped up by the nation’s favourite deli, Centra.
To the sound of joyous cheers from Irish vegans, Centra announced their new vegan range—and the sausage roll holds pride of place.
And while Gregg’s was treated as Saviour of the Vegans for their incredibly convincing plant-based sausage roll, Centra has gone one step further, also introducing Breakfast Baps and even the almighty VEGAN JAMBON.
The breakfast bap, often hailed as the ultimate hangover cure, contains vegan sausage, hashbrowns, mushrooms and classic Ballymaloe relish.
The soy-based, spicy sausage roll looks as tempting as usual.
And the glorious jambon is made with a mouthwatering mix of crispy pastry and warm curried cauliflower and sweet potato. Get in.
Demand is expected to be huge for these tasty new options, but Centra are charging a meagre price: 3 jambons or sausage rolls for just €1.50 and the vegan breakfast bap for €3.50.
The vegan twists on the classic Irish staples are causing a stir online—but so far there have been no Piers Morgan-esque tantrums from furious meat eating celebrities.
Just found out centra are now doing vegan sausage rolls, vegan jambons and vegan breakfast baps, goodbye to my waistline😭😍😍

Centra announced they’ll have a whole vegan deli range soon. And then I went into gay spar today and they had vegan sausage rolls. I’m living. The goddesses are looking out for me and my deli needs.

If you need us we’ll be on a ferry crossing the Irish Sea, setting sail towards the closest Centra.
