Scone, but not forgotten!

Greggs, the popular bakery chain has decided to stop selling scones across all of its 1,700 shops across the country and its customers aren't impressed. Greggs, which has sold scones for several decades has made the decision to remove them completely as it looks to reposition its product offer and move away from from baked goods to more trendy food-on-the go items as well as its rising emphasis on more healthy food options. The bakery is also moving towards more wraps and burrito's as it switches it emphasis away from sausage rolls and pasties. Greggs even announced that they may stop selling freshly baked loaves. Bosses at Greggs, which employs more than 20,000 people, said the popularity of scones had dropped off recently and a decision was taken to stop making them. However, it has left scone fans around the UK fuming after going to their local stores and finding the shelves bereft of the afternoon tea favourite.
