Sadly, the pieces are inedible, as they’re made out of clay. We’d recommend doing a Greggs haul before you settle into your game in case playing with a tiny sausage roll makes you peckish.
The creator of the chess set is Rachael Dorward, 39, who works as a warehouse supervisor at Greggs’ manufacturing site in Longbenton, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
Rachael previously volunteered at Sure Start Centres, showing children how to make things with clay, so she’s skilled in the crafty side of things.
Rachael said: ‘I’ve always loved crafting and find clay modelling particularly therapeutic and a brilliant way to relax. I’ve done it for years but was recently inspired by my day job to create something a bit different, featuring models of my favourite Greggs products.
‘The chessboard was perfect as it allowed me to create lots of miniature models of things like sausage rolls and bacon sandwiches, my favourite is the Steak Bake so I obviously I had to make that one the King!’
Sadly the chess set is just a one-off, so you can’t buy your own or have a play at your local Greggs branch, but who knows, maybe the excitement will get Greggs to delve into the board game industry. We’re hoping for a Monopoly set with a vegan sausage roll piece next.
