No longer do meat-averse Glaswegians have to slum it with a link. The square vegan sausage has finally arrived.

Rose & Grants on Trongate launched their new vegan menu last week, and the vegan square sausage proved to be a popular edition.
And a shocking one.
People were going crazy for this new twist on a classic, with comments such as “Vegan square sausage. GAME CHANGER” and “Vegan square sausage! I think I just shed a tear of joy”.

“You eat celery and humus and be f***ing content with your life choices!”

We could see this deep philosophical discussion rumbling on for some time.
