I love summer for a variety of reasons, one of them being for the amazing food and drink and of course; picnics. I had never thought to look to Greggs for picnic items before, however when I was invited to get involved in a #GreggsPicnic I had to get on board! Everyone knows and loves Greggs, and I am definitely impartial to the odd sausage roll, however with new healthy ranges and fun summery selections, the lovely people at Greggs sent me a 4 person hamper for the perfect picnic and to try out some of their new ranges. I was really overwhelmed as the gorgeous team sent me a stunning Linea Fruits 4 Person Hamper which is actually on sale for an amazing price of £40 and includes EVERYTHING you need for the perfect picnic- including a wine opener, a gorgeous Linea Pink Fleece Blanket and a Floric Blanc De Blancs Sparkling Wine Hamper to complete the most luxe picnic. Ever.
Greggs have recently introduced a new healthy ‘balanced choice’ range which is low in calories, healthy, summery and super yummy. Usually I find healthy ranges pretty limited and with some of my annoying food allergies such as chicken, pretty impossible, however the Greggs ‘balanced choice’ range has something for everyone, from meat eaters to vegetarians! I also loved how the range includes a variety of pasta, soup, rolls, flatbreads, fruit pots and flavoured water. For our super decadent picnic, we chose a selection and chose to try the Mexican Chicken Pasta, Cheese & Tomato Pasta Pot, Chicken & Bacon Layered Salad, the Mexican 5 Bean Flatbread, Honey Cured Ham Salad Sub Roll, a pot of the Tropical Fruit Fingers and a selection of strawberry and lemon & lime flavoured water and some cloudy lemonade to wash it all down with! And of course whilst we were trying to be healthy it wouldn’t be a Greggs Picnic without some iced buns and dougnuts! We had quite the feast, and whilst it was only just mid-day I decided to save the sparkling wine for a night out with the girls in a week where we plan to make some yummy sparkling cocktails!
Massive thanks to Greggs for providing such a feast. Have you had any picnics yet this summer?
