FURIOUS punters say Greggs is banger out of order for replacing its sausage, bean and cheese melts with a vegan alternative.
Customers are instead offered a plant-based option stuffed with fungal protein and fake mozzarella cheese.
But the alternative is being blasted as “vegan rubbish”.
One angry customer said: “Who the chuff’s been panic buying sausage bean melts from Greggs? Lunch ruined!”
A Greggs worker admitted: “We have not had the sausage and bean melt for weeks now.”
Vegan-friendly “sausage, bean and cheeze” melts have divided opinion with punters, many saying they will never replace a proper meat pastry.
Greggs’ plant-based products also include sausage rolls and doughnuts.
But the driver shortage has also affected supplies of chicken bakes and other sugary and sandwich products.
Greggs said: “Our sausage and bean melts are temporarily unavailable but we’re working hard to get this back in shops.”
