That was the third time the price of sausage rolls and their vegan counterparts were raised in 2022,

Customers were paying £1 at the start of last year before a price hike to £1.05.

Further increases saw the sausage roll hit £1.10 in May and then £1.15 in October before reaching their current price of £1.20.

This means that the price of a sausage roll has risen by 20p in around a year, because of rocketing inflation.

But how much you're charged can still depend on where you live – for example, a sausage roll can cost as much as £1.95 in central London.

Greggs has confirmed there are "no plans" to hike the price of its much-loved pastry right now.

Roisin Currie, Greggs chief executive said: "The sausage roll is currently £1.20 and as we sit here right now we have no plans for future price rises.

"But with the caveat of the uncertainty and complexity of the market – we have to continue to constantly have that in our sights.

"We are very focused on price and value so we think very carefully before we pass on prices to customers."

There are currently 2,328 Greggs stores open around the UK and you can find your nearest one using the store locator tool on its website.

Food fans elsewhere were fuming when Costa Coffee hiked its menu prices by 12% last June, including the cost of skinny lattes and small cappuccinos.

Similar to Greggs, this price rise was blamed on inflation.

And Wetherspoon announced it would increase its prices by 7.9% this year.

So that's another 29p added to the cost of a pint whilst food will cost an extra 75p from now.

However, just note that pub prices will still likely vary across the country.

But don't feel too heavy-hearted – a spokesperson has said other Easter favourites would be landing in stores in the coming weeks.
