‘Anything other than ham and pineapple you heathens’: Greggs sparks debate on social media AGAIN by teasing divisive new bake filling

  • The popular bakery teased potential new bake flavours on Twitter yesterday
  • One of the most prominent, ham and pineapple, has divided opinions online 
  • Tweet comes just a week after the release of Greggs’ controversial vegan roll

Greggs has sparked debate on social media yet again – by teasing a controversial ham and pineapple bake.

The bakery wasted no time in brainstorming new ideas after the release of their vegan ‘sausage’ roll divided opinion last week.

But Greggs clearly has no reservation about continuing the controversy – and have teased a divisive flavour combo for an upcoming bake: ham and pineapple.

The bakery tweeted: ‘If you could invent a new bake with ANY filling, what would you choose?’

The Tweet was accompanied by an image showing a sketch of potential new bake flavours.

Next to a sketch of a bake, ‘HAM + PINEAPPLE’ is written with an arrow pointing towards the pastry. 

Other ideas scrawled on the page include ‘sausage + mash’, ‘fish + chips’, ‘apple bake’ and ‘chicken pot bake’.

The toppings are famously divisive on pizza – and it appears opinions don’t differ for a potential bake filling.  

One Twitter user said: ‘Literally anything other than ham and pineapple you heathens.’
