Pasties found 'hidden' in Henry VIII portrait

High street bakery Greggs has been a British favourite since 1939, but one diehard fan has claimed its famous pasties could have been a favourite as far back as the sixteenth century.

Twitter user Luke (@goopery), from Manchester, couldn't resist tweeting the baker when he spotted something that that bore a striking resemblance to a Greggs Steak Bake in Hans Holbein's iconic painting of Tudor king Henry VIII.

So a pastie in American English is a glue-on nipple patch?

Basically yes, legally considered clothing where I live (which is a blessing at times but more often a horrible, horrible curse)  .

The quirks in language between the two nations always crack me up.

I had a Gregg's Chicken Bake yesterday, and it did smell like Henry VIII's feet. :yes:

Thank god it didn't smell like his ulcerated leg did after he was injured whilst jousting in 1536.
