HUNGRY residents across Ayrshire are travelling to Cumnock to get their hands on the UK’s most talked about pastry, a Greggs vegan sausage roll.

The Townhead bakery is the only branch in the County currently offering the cruelty free snack to customers, despite high demands elsewhere.

It comes as the vegan delight has been selling out across the Britain, with punters desperate to try the pastry after its introduction to the Greggs menu divided social media users.

But some punters have been left disappointed after being turned away in Greggs stores as only select chains are stocking the new craze.

The vegan delight is on sale in some Glasgow and Edinburgh branches but extremely limited elsewhere.

Now customers are flocking the East Ayrshire to try the famous sausage roll.

A baker for the store in Cumnock said: “We are the only shop in the whole of Ayrshire who are stocking the vegan sausage roll.

“I think it’s because we sell more vegetarian stuff so that's maybe why Greggs picked us.

“I imagine it will be rolled out to all stores eventually but right now if you want one you need to come to us.

“We have been selling a good amount of it so far and we do well selling the vegetarian stuff usually.”

Some Ayrshire residents were left upset when they missed out on purchasing the vegan treat.

Elaine on twitter wrote: “Went into local Greggs in Ayr to buy vegan sausage rolls none in stock only sold in the Cumnock shop. Very disappointed.”

Laura on Twitter said: “Apparently you can get one (vegan sausage roll) in Cumnock. But not North Ayrshire.”

Peter on Twitter chipped in: “The Vegan Sausage roll doesn't bother me.

“What does bother me is that the Cumnock Branch of @GreggsOfficial used to do an onion scotch pie.

“I moved to Glasgow and asked for one, the woman looked at me, judged me and rolled her eyes then said ‘it's a quiche, dear’ No, it isnae!”

Although the Cumnock bakery was the first to actually sell the vegan item, Greggs staff seem confident it will be rolled out to other branches very soon.
