Now we're into November and many people are already feeling increasingly festive as the big day draws ever nearer.
Christmas gives us another excuse to feast on just about whatever we like and lengthy shopping trips are sure to stir up an appetite.
If there's one lunch that never seems to disappoint at this time of year it is the Festive Bake from Greggs – and the good news is there isn't long to wait.
The chicken and stuffing filled pasty is set to hit stores in Burton, Swadlincote and Uttoxeter on Thursday, November 9.
The Christmas treat is so popular that members of the Greggs Festive Bake Society – yes, that is a real organisation– have set up a dedicated countdown website.
What's in a festive bake?
