The only bad thing about pigs-in-blankets? They run out too quickly.
Words by Kate McCusker
Being everyone’s favourite Christmas snack (and for good, delicious reason) the pigs-in-blankets have often vanished from the plate before we’re halfway finished chewing our first, and already thinking about our second.
Aldi has released a two metre long pig-in-blanket. We repeat: Aldi has released a two metre long pig-in-blanket.
The brand took their Instagram to announce the joyous news earlier this week, captioning the post: “Who’s going to be snatching up one of these?”
Two words: WE WILL.
The mammoth snack is new for 2019 as part of the budget-friendly supermarket’s Christmas range, and could be yours for just £4.99. Weighing in at a staggering 750g, this roll of festive deliciousness is enough to feed a small village of elves.
According to the supermarket, it’s the longest pig-in-blanket being sold in the UK.
Like our traditional all-time festive favourite, Aldi’s mega pig-in-blanket is sausage made from British-sourced pork wrapped in bacon. Its huge size and swirl shape means it can be easily cooked in a dish in the oven, before being served either as a tear-and-share, or cut up into bitesize sections.
Not to mention that it’s limited edition, so grab it while you can…
If that sounds like a bit too much meat for you, check out the brand’s purse-friendly halloumi wrapped in bacon.
And Aldi aren’t the only brand to reinvent our favourite Christmas snack: Tesco have opted for elegance and unveiled a pigs-in-blankets stuffing wreath, while Lidl has revealed a pigs-in-blanket topped pizza for the festive season.
Merry Christmas, indeed.
