There are few high-street staples in the UK that are as beloved as Greggs.
The bakery chain has saved many a breakfast, lunch, dinner and even a late-night stagger home from the pub with its sausage rolls, bakes, sandwiches and cakes.
However, it would appear that it’s not just Brits who enjoy a good Greggs.
An American woman on TikTok named Gabrielle Marcellus has become a hit on Instagram after expressing her love for Greggs but it’s actually her pronunciation of the name which has earned her viral fame.
Since the video has gone viral, Marcellus has posted another TikTok explaining why she calls Greggs ‘GR Eggs.’ She says that, in 2018, she had an English boyfriend and during a trip to London they were searching for somewhere to have breakfast.
“I found this one place, way back there that was called GR Eggs. He was like ‘What?’ I was like: ‘Yeah, it’s called GR Eggs and he was like: ‘What, show me, show me.’ So I literally went and I showed him this place and he was like ‘Greggs?’
“I don’t know why but for some reason I saw the word ‘eggs’ and ‘GR’ and I swore it was ‘GR Eggs.’ It’s definitely not. I know it’s called Greggs but it’s such a funny story and it’s a running joke with me and my friends from the UK. I never refer to it as Greggs because to me it’s always GR Eggs.”
