Greggs has confirmed the removal of a popular sweet treat from hundreds of its stores – leaving fans devastated.

The bakery chain removed its bread pudding during the coronavirus pandemic and has now revealed it won’t be coming back to stores any time soon.

Bread pudding is sold in hundreds of Greggs branches in the south of England.

Replying to fans on Twitter, the high street food giant said the popular dessert is being given a “a well deserved rest”.

One Greggs fan said on Twitter: “What’s the world coming to? Just found out Greggs don’t do bread pudding anymore. That’s bonkers.”

And another added: “Please can you explain why there was no bread pudding in Yarmouth store this week, your member of staff implied that bread pudding is permanently off the menu! This is of huge concern.”

A third person said: “I’d really like to [know] what made you take bread pudding off the menu and when it’s coming back.”

A fourth simply tweeted: “Please bring back bread pudding.”

Replying to one customer in a tweet, Greggs said: “We do regularly look at our range, so we’re keeping up to date with what our customers would like.

“On completing our last review, we’ve made the decision to give this a well-deserved rest. Just to let you know, this may not be a permanent change.”

A Greggs spokesperson told The Mirror: “Our bread puddings haven’t been available in shops for over two years, but there’s a wide range of tasty, sweet products for our customers to enjoy.”

Bread pudding is made with stale bread that is soaked in a mixture of milk, sugar, and eggs, and then baked.

In more Greggs news, the bakery giant has announced it will open a store in Leicester Square, central London, this year.

The store is still being built, and a cheeky hoarding concealing the work site looks like a massive Greggs steak bake.

The exact opening date has not yet been revealed.

The new ‘MegaGreggs’ at 1 Leicester Square will be next door to M&M World and near neighbours like Odeon and the Lego megastore.

The opening is part of Greggs’ plan to go more upmarket, with recent openings on The Strand, Canary Wharf, Paddington, St Pancras Station and Kings Cross.

Greggs will open around 150 new shops across the UK over the next year, taking its total number of branches to just under 2,500.
