what's a softie?

Original Poster

Its a long and soft baguette! Far easier to eat than a crusty baguette

voted hot, about to go buy a paper see what fillings are available

ok apparently all fillings are available, you just fill out some questions about yourself and put ur postcode down and get a free big softie

Daily Record, can you get this in London? Sounds scottish.

Better a big softie than a big stiffie :whistling:

Not what the missues said... :whistling:

its scotish only, greggs dont sell softies down south pretty sure. Softies are really nice though.

Normally most newsagents have at least 1 copy though, they do in Chester and Warrington and at my familys down in Sussex.

The voucher may be Scotland only though, it depends.

Not in the North West its not .... my missus works at Greggs , a 'softie' is a small barmcake that replaced the floured bap. They sell them in packs of 6 in her shop , NOT individually so whether this is a nationwide thing I'm not so sure.
They dont sell 'softies' with fillings , The only soft roll with fillings that they sell in her shop is the 'deli' rolls which look like big barmcakes or the 'oval bites' which are the ones with seeds on the top.

As I say I can only speak for the shops in the North West (Warrington to be precise) but in Scotland it may be different and they may have different names for things , that wouldnt suprise me !

Hope this clarifies things for you guys expecting to get a filled sandwich in exchange for your voucher !

Sounds like it's different. Been a few years since I had a Greggs softie but last time it was as others said, they are like baguettes only soft and you get all sorts of fillings like tuna mayo, prawn mayo, char grilled chicken and the likes. Usually come with salad on 'em too ... unless they've moved the goal posts. Also someone said looks like all fillings available.

Well apparantly Wales has them too, as I have always known a 'soft baguette' as a softie....i.e a baguette that isn't hard, it's soft, so softie....get where im going?

Also on the website is a voucher to download for BOGOFF chicken pasty.

Just went and collected my free big softie have to say it was nice, but usually go to subway for that type of thing and think i will continue to do so

OK, what's a barmcake? :?



It's a bread roll, apparently. No more, no less; just a bread roll.

A Barmcake is a soft bread roll , its also known as a 'Bap' . In the North West of England Softies are these. The Rolls other people describe as soft baguettes filled with tuna mayo / chargrilled chicken / salad etc are infact called 'oval bites' in the North West.
Depending on where you are in the country it seems they are labelled differently.

Do they do cobs in Greggs?

Hmm, Subway - redefining the term 'eat fresh'!

Dunno how they get away with it considering their fillings are all frozen!:whistling:

As a resident of the South East of England this post reads like a script from Coronation Street !
