In fact on launch day both Norwich stores taking part in the vegan sausage roll trial had sold out by lunchtime.

The good news for meat-free savoury snack fans is that Greggs isn’t the only place you can get your hands on a vegan sausage roll. Here are five other Norwich shops that stock a version of the pastry treat.

The Green Grocers, Earlham Road
