Monitor Missing crisps, Greggs now says they’re running out of a range of items, including eggs to make their breakfast bread.

The shortage comes after Greggs, with more than 2,000 stores nationwide, ran out vegan sausage roll last week and chicken shortage in August.

And fans of the series are feeling hungover.

One angry twitter user: “Tried to buy burgers for breakfast this morning, the store ran out of bacon, eggs and bagels.”

Another angry customer said: “Is there a shortage of eggs? I really crave one of your breakfasts! ”

Another fuming fan said: “I’m a huge Greggs fan, but the ‘omelette shortage’ my three local Greggs still refer to whenever I order bacon and omelette rolls are getting tired.

“Please don’t tell me it’s Covid or pandemic?! They are eggs! Come on!”

In response, Greggs tweeted: “We are very sorry our omelettes are temporarily unavailable.

“We understand this can be disappointing.

“We are working extremely hard to get them back in our store as soon as possible.

“It is believed that the shortage is due to a combination of labor shortages, a shortage of HGV drivers as well as supply problems caused by Covid.

Cumbria was one of the hardest hit areas, with one customer saying: “Looks like there’s a shortage of eggs in your Cumbria stores!

“It is disappointing. This veggie can’t seem to get an omelette roll anywhere in Cumbria! ”

Another tweeted: “Why are there never any eggs for bacon in any of your stores?”

The chain apologized for the shortage, acknowledging the items were “temporarily unavailable”.

Last month, Greggs CEO Roger Whiteside warned that the company has also suffered as Brexit has affected staffing and supply chains.

At the time, he said he “was up every morning and asked which new item was gone”.

Despite supply concerns, Greggs has recovered well from the pandemic with shares up more than 70% this year.

Other major chains such as Nandos, Wetherspoons and McDonald’s have also suffered shortages in recent months.

A spokesman for Greggs said: “We are experiencing a short-term production issue with our supplier, which is affecting a number of available omelettes.

“The supplier is working to resolve this and we hope to return to normal availability as soon as possible.”
