Greggs’ Pigs in Blankets are leaving buyers disappointed as they open half empty tubs

Greggs the UK bakery has brought back ‘Pigs in Blankets‘ this year at 600 of their stores, they’ve become a viral hit again but in reality, the £2.25 tubs aren’t like the photos and buyers are opening them to some disappointment.

Emma Maguire on Facebook said: “That picture is misleading, the tub isn’t that full” and Ashley Caveney said: “But in reality you get half a cup”, it seems for your £2.25 you get 5, 6 or 7 in a pot unlike the photo Greggs which looks to contain at least double that!

Does anyone care?

Do you get annoyed when photos of food don't look the same as the photos?

Although opinions are mixed:

What are the alternatives?

How can companies get away with using photos of products that don’t actually look like the final product?

Often they put the wording next to images saying ‘For illustration purposes’ or ‘Serving Suggestion’, although not in this case 🤷‍♂️

Asking Fast Food places to make products that look like the photos

How do McDonalds do it?

  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
