Here It Is: The JLS Pasty...

Greenhalgh's pastry-based honour to the gym-bunny boy band

Here It Is: The JLS Pasty...

BEN from Smoking Gun PR has just dropped into the Confidential offices with a gift. The gift of pasties.

But this is no ordinary pasty. This is a new invention from those lovely folk at Greenhalgh's. It's called the 'Asty Pasty', in honour of JLS member Aston Merrygold.

You know JLS. They're the X Factor boy band who spend a lot of time in the gym or doing backflips but probably NEVER EAT PASTIES.

But what the hell. Greenhalgh's production director, David Smart, has knocked one up for them anyway, following an email from 15-year-olds Chloe Perks and Georgina Cromwell from Preston.

They came up with the idea as a way of helping them meet their idols.

So what's in the pasty? Tuna, red onion, cheese sauce and pasta. That's right. Pasta. In a pasty.

Pasta. In a pasty.Pasta. In a pasty.

Is that wrong? Quite possibly. It tastes just like tuna pasta though, although the general concensus in the office was that it needs more cheese.

Darren was scared to look at the pasta filling, Rambo thought it was a bit bland. Schofield refused to eat one because he thinks pasties are a 'morally questionable form of self indulgence made worse by a violent and acrimonious approach to flavour.'

He would.

I thought it was alright, although I'm not a big fan of tuna.

What will the rest of JLS think? Who knows. They've got their own branded range of condoms to fall back on, so to speak, so I'm sure they'll be fine.

Now sing with me: 'Everybody in love, put you pasty up." No?

Is there a Greenhalgh's shop in Manchester? I wish there was. I dont give a flying backflip about these particular pasties but Greenhalghs pasties and pies are very nice in my very wide pastie experience.
