​Aldi Is Launching A Foot-Long Pig In Blanket This Christmas

​Aldi Is Launching A Foot-Long Pig In Blanket This Christmas

There's a lot to love about Christmas, from the presents under the tree and spending lots of time with loved ones through to the simple, unbridled joy of being able to get pissed throughout the entirety of December. Woohoo!

But, realistically, we're all mostly there for that bumper roast dinner, aren't we? And, the more we think about it, as much as we'd love to say that we're hyped for those sprouts, we all know it's the double-meat hit of the pigs in blankets that we're most looking forward to.

Well, what if we were to tell you that this year pigs in blankets are getting a bit of a makeover, as Aldi launches a foot-long version?

The supermarket will be launching the XL pigs in blankets on 6 December as part of its Christmas range. Sure, we know there are still over three months between us and Christmas Day, but it's still good to have something to get excited about ahead of the festive period, right? And if we're going to be enthused about anything, it's gonna be sausages wrapped in bacon.

Costing £2.99 for a pack of two, the 12-inch sausages are wrapped in streaky bacon and are perfect for sharing - if you're feeling generous, that is.

According to Hotukdeals, the supermarket will also be selling a trio of pigs in blankets, which see a stack of three cocktail sausages cuddled up in a bacon blanket.

Commenting on the Facebook post, many social media users were chuffed to hear about their porky prospects.

"Wooooooohoooooooo!!! I'm gonna get me one of those!!!" one Facebooker wrote.

Another said: "I'll just have a plate full of these"

Ooh er...

You might think getting excited for Christmas in September is a bit premature, but one family in Billingham, County Durham, have shown it's never too early to get into the festive spirit, having already put up their decorations.

Sarah and Shaun Weir and their three children - Joseph, 13, Alfie, 11, and Leonna, nine - think now is the best time to pull out the novelty jumpers and tinsel-covered tree ahead of Santa's visit later this year.

Speaking to The Sun, Sarah said: "Why wait until December? Our family adore Christmas and we never get bored of it.

"It's an incredibly special time for us, and the kids finally come in from playing outdoors to cosy up on the sofa.

"We are always the first on our street but everybody loves it!"

While I reckon it's a bit soon for me to get the twinkling fairy lights out, I'm more than okay with dreaming about pigs in blankets...
