The face coverings are infact designed after Poundbakery’s pasties and sausage rolls- and they don’t just look like them, they smell like them too.

The chain took its Top 5 savoury flavours including cheese and onion, sausage roll, steak, vegan roll and bean and sausage and designed a unique scent for each product.

Who wouldn't want one of these?!

A Poundbakery spokesperson said: “Our customers always comment on how good our pasties smell when they come out of the oven, so we thought that by giving the masks an aroma of cheese and onion, or a vegan friendly roll it would bring a sense of joy to customers when shopping around town”.

“We’re really pleased with how they’ve turned out, so we’re now looking into creating some more pasty chic fashionable accessories,” they added.

In case you hadn’t figured it out already, this was a hilarious joke- Happy April Fool’s Day!
