Britain's most calorific sausage rolls revealed... and Gregg's ISN'T the worst offender
Britain's most calorific sausage roll is even worse for your waistline than two pints of beer, analysis shows.
But the worst offender is not sold at Greggs.
Instead, Ginsters' meat-filled buttery pastry, sold in shops for 1.25, has 480 calories.
This is almost as much as what is found inside aMcDonald's Big Mac (493) or roughly four slices of toast drenched in butter (520).
Options sold at the likes of Sainsbury's, M&S and Morrisons placed in the top 10.
MailOnline audited dozens of the savoury treats sold in shops across the UK ahead of National Sausage Roll Day.
We looked at options at chains such as Greggs, as well as ready-to-eat rolls available at the likes of Tesco and Asda.
Ginsters Large Sausage Roll'scalorie count equates to nearly a quarter of a woman's (2,000) and a fifth of a man's (2,500) daily recommended intake.
It also had 15.3g of saturated fat and 1.4g of salt.
Health chiefs advise women eat no more than 20g of saturated fat a day, while men are told to stick to under 30g. Too much can raise cholesterol and increase the risk of heart disease.
