Mettricks Create Blue Pork Pie to Celebrate Glossop North End in FA Vase 2015 Final
It’s not something you come across every day while browsing the shelves of your local butcher…but to celebrate Glossop North End making it to the 2015 FA Vase final at Wembley on May 9th, we have created a BLUE pork pie!
A family sized limited edition blue pork pie costs £4.90 or a medium sized pie is just £1.25. If you buy a family sized pie or four medium sized pies you will also get a 30p off voucher to spend on one of two Howard Town Brewery ales at Praze in Glossop.
Our special edition pork pie is reminiscent of a time 6 years ago, when Glossop North End made it to Wembley and we created the blue sausage, which went down a storm in and around Glossop!
Also, in 2010 Mettrick’s won the best football pie in the country with one of the pies they supply to Glossop North End.
Coming up with the idea was the easy part! After umpteen attempts we decided edible blue food spray was the only way to get the pie to change colour!
John Mettrick is donating 10 per cent of the proceeds from the blue pork pie to the club, which he’s also been supporting with meaty offerings on the club’s journey to Wembley.
The blue pork pies are on sale in our Glossop shop and also available to order for the rest of the week.
