Bakery chain Greggs have revealed the 2020 release date of its Festive Bakes.

The company made the announcement about the hotly-anticipated savoury treat on their Facebook and Twitter channels.

While the festive season may be some time away, the chain hope the return of the popular product will “save 2020.”

In a post on Twitter, Greggs confirmed the return, adding: “If anything can save 2020, it’s the Festive Bake #79Days”.

The pastry will return to stores across the UK on Bonfire Night, Thursday, November 5 – two days earlier than last year’s release date.

So remember, remember, the 5th of November! 

The Festive Bake is made from pieces of chicken breast, sage and onion stuffing, sweetcure bacon in a creamy sage and cranberry sauce – all wrapped in golden puff pastry with a crunchy crumb topping.

Fans have expressed their joy at the news on social media.
