The Award For the Craziest Press Release Gift of 2016 Goes to- Greggs' Bakery, for Their Christmas Flavour Lip Balm! And You Can Get One Free This Coming Monday!

Greggs has launched two limited edition flavoured lip balms just in time for Christmas – and is giving them away in nine cities across the UK, including Belfast.


With all those Christmas kisses under the mistletoe in mind, the UK’s leading bakery food on-the-go retailer has created two special festive lip balms – Festive Bake and Sweet Mince Pie flavour – offering the ultimate flavours of the season for your lips.

I burst out laughing when my parcel arrived this morning containing a sprig of mistletoe & my own set of lip balms. 

The Festive Bake flavour is inspired by the taste of chicken breast, sage & onion stuffing and sweetcure bacon in a creamy sage and cranberry sauce.

The Sweet Mince Pie flavour is based on Greggs’ deliciously crumbly short crust pastry filled with sweet mincemeat, which is made with vine fruits, Bramley apple and candied orange and lemon peel.

A Greggs spokesperson, said: “This Christmas we wanted to bring some fun to the last minute present dash by giving busy shoppers the chance to pick up a festive lip balm from a number of our shops across the country."
