Hungover woman ‘gutted’ as Greggs sausage roll arrives without any sausage

A woman has shared the moment she eagerly cut into her hangover cure of a Greggs sausage roll, only to be incredibly disappointed to discover it didn’t have a sausage inside

When getting over a hangover, many people turn to certain comfort foods to soak up the alcohol and make themselves feel better – everything from fry ups to McDonald’s meals.

Kayleigh O’Brien recently ordered a sausage roll from Greggs in an attempt to perk herself up while feeling a bit worse for wear from the night before.

However, when her food arrived via Just Eat, the 30-year-old from Warwick was ‘gutted’ to discover that there was no sausage inside her sausage roll.

The personal assistant was excited to cut into her order but was stunned to find an empty pastry shell.

Kayleigh filmed the moment she made the disappointing discovery and the clip later went viral.

She and her boyfriend ended up having to split the only full sausage roll between them before she sent the video evidence to Just Eat.

Kayleigh said: “I was gutted. Everyone loves Greggs sausage rolls and I really fancied one that day. The meat inside is a pretty big part of the experience.

“I had been out the night before with my boyfriend so when we woke up about the middle of the day we were a bit hungover and just needed some food.

“We didn’t fancy a McDonald’s breakfast and then I noticed Greggs was on Just Eat. We just ordered these two sausage rolls, a chicken and bacon baguette, a tuna sandwich and a couple of coffees.

“When the food came, I opened the bag and one of the sausage rolls felt hollow and really light. I turned to my boyfriend and said this hasn’t got a sausage in it, and he didn’t believe me.”

She continued to say: “I couldn’t understand how they didn’t tell there wasn’t a sausage inside. I took a video of me cutting it open for proof.

“I sent the video over to Just Eat and they refunded me for that. I also tweeted Greggs with the footage and they sent me a £5 voucher.”

Kayleigh’s video has been viewed more than 442,000 times online, with many people joking the sausage roll ‘was vegan’ while others said they were ‘hurt’ for her.

One commenter joked: “Ohhh this is the new vegan sausage roll.”

Another replied: “Plot twist… it’s vegan.”

A third said: “From one Kayleigh to another Kayleigh, I’m so sorry. I love sausage rolls.”

While someone else asked: “How did they not even notice it being different?”

A different user added: “I’m hurt for you.”

A Greggs spokesperson said: “Oh crumbs! We certainly didn’t intend for our sausage roll to be given to this customer without the sausage.

“Our crisp, golden puff pastry is certainly delicious, but it’s the seasoned sausage within that makes it such a favourite with millions of people across the UK.

“The customer has been refunded and offered a voucher so they can get themselves a free sausage roll on us.”
