GREGGS fans have been left disappointed after the bakery chain raised the price of a sausage roll by 5p.
The pastry price hike is part of a plan by Greggs to raise charges by 5 to 10% across the entire menu.
Sausage rolls and their vegan counterparts have gone up in price from £1 to £1.05.
Greggs said the move was a "last resort", but regulars at the UK's biggest bakery chain are still unimpressed.
Tom Yorks tweeted: "The biggest crime I've seen this year is Greggs increasing the price of a sausage roll from £1 to £1.05."
And @stump_yo added: "Oh so the price of a Greggs vegan sausage roll has gone up but my wages haven't?
The Sun has asked Greggs which other items will go up in price and by how much – we'll update the story when we hear back.

But Greggs has said the price rises will come into effect across the country.
A company spokesperson told Bloomberg: “Ingredients and labour costs have been rising and Greggs is not immune from that.
“The company does absorb some of the cost but has put up prices by about 5-10 pence across the range."
And despite similar price rises in 2020 and 2018, the spokesperson said Greggs remains "good value".
