Greggs Apologises for Sausage Roll Christ Child

That seemingly innocent image of holy people gathering around to bless a sausage roll really kicked off big time for Greggs, but not in a good way. People who believe in the Jesus things were right pissed off about replacing the famous stable-born baby with a sausage roll in order to sell a calendar and some coffees, so much so that Greggs has been forced to do a serious-face, puffed-out-bottom-lip apology.

There’s no Meat in the Greggs Advent Calendar

Greggs, the sausage roll shop, has produced an advent calendar. Sadly it doesn't contain any foodstuffs, as you'd have to keep it refrigerated and you wouldn't really want to eat a four week old sausage product on Christmas Eve anyway. Read More >>

Deliveroo’s Launching a Subscription-Like Service That Scraps the Delivery Charge

These days you can get just about everything delivered to your house, and services like Deliveroo and Uber Eats have made avoiding cooking easier than every before. But every time you get a Nandos or a McDonald's delivered to your house, you have to pay a delivery charge.

What’s The Grossest Fast Food Chain?

There’s an ad campaign running at the moment for McDonald’s, in which rather than tell us directly how tasty it thinks its food is, it is instead telling us how not-disgusting it is. Chicken McNuggets, the ad points out, don’t contain “bits” - beaks and parts of the chicken, and so on. Read More >>

Wimpy is Planning a Comeback

It's safe to say that Wimpy peaked a long time ago. Once it had hundreds of locations across the UK, and was one of the top dogs of the British fast food industry. Until the likes of McDonald's came along. Now, though, the company is down to a mere 74 locations, and is a shadow of what it once was. But that might change, because the company is planning a comeback. Read More >>

Quality Street’s Latest Publicity Stunt is to Bring Back the Toffee Deluxe

Last year Nestlé caused outrage when it announced that the Toffee Deluxe sweet would be removed from Quality Street tubs in favour of a new Honeycomb Crunch. Something to do with the brand's 80th birthday, and totally wasn't to generate publicity from all the people moaning about it. A year on and Nestlé has reversed course and reinstated Toffee Deluxe in another obvious publicity stunt.
