Man Spends £5,000 On Greggs A Year And To Be Honest Who Can Blame Him?

Man Spends £5,000 On Greggs A Year And To Be Honest Who Can Blame Him?

A bacon butty addict who blows £5,000 every year on Greggs food has admitted he 'can't live without it' - and I have to admit he's a man after my own heart.

Luke Parker, 25, has scoffed his way through two bacon rolls, two sausage rolls and two lattes every single day for the last three years - setting him back £15,000.

The professional photographer believe it's become 'a bit of an addiction', as he finds himself getting in a bad mood if he fails to get his fix.

After piling on a stone and a half, Luke is now halving his visits from twice to once a day in a bid to get back in shape. But he's still calling on Greggs to open a drive-thru in his hometown of Kirkham, Lancashire so he doesn't have to queue for bacon sarnies on the way to work.

Luke said: "It's a bit of an addiction to be honest. I couldn't survive without it. "If I have ever had to go without, I've been in a really bad mood all day.

"Although I used to eat there twice a day, now that I'm travelling around I go to a different one nearer home [once] each morning.

"Since they opened a Greggs in Kirkham, as soon as I pull up the staff recognise me and start getting my order ready. They remember me.

"I have been late for work a few times too because I've had to wait in the car whilst they cooked me a sausage fresh.

"Now they've opened a drive-thru in Manchester, I'll probably go there in a few weeks when I'm working over there. I hope they open one in Kirkham soon."

The reason behind his addiction remains a mystery, Luke admits: "I'm not really sure why I go to Greggs so often. I think it's just because it tastes so good and I love their coffee on a Monday morning."

Luke's work colleagues take the piss out of him over his strict Greggs diet and he even admits it's 'ridiculous'.

Luke said: "My friends think it's really funny that I love it so much and laugh at me. They go mad at me sometimes in the office.

"I'd say each year I spend just short of £5,000 on visiting Greggs. I know, it's ridiculous.

"I keep saying I'm going to go on a diet although luckily I don't find it hard to keep the weight off.

"I'd say in the past year I've put on a stone and a half.

"I used to have a personal trainer who spotted me coming out of Greggs.

"He would just say: 'What, are you going to eat that? Do you think you're going to lose weight?'

"I didn't really care as long as I could get my visits in."

Greggs declined to comment.
