GAME's Christmas Tinner For Lazy Gamers Is Back With Vegan And Veggie Options

Have you given up on life this festive season? Well, boy do we have the thing for you - Christmas dinner in a can.

Yep, you can buy an entire Christmas dinner - dessert and all - squashed together so tightly that it somehow fits inside a tin, which is possibly the least festive thing ever.

The food connoisseurs over at GAME have returned with their all-in-one meal, which they say is the ideal present for gamers who just can't tear themselves away from their consoles to eat reasonable food.

But it's not like they just made this up - they carried out some in-depth research.

A spokesperson from the site said: "The creation of the Christmas Tinner came after finding that 43 percent of gamers in the UK intend to spend the majority of the holidays on their consoles and hate having to take time away from the screen just to eat.

"Gamers will do anything to stay live in-play - not even sex can lure gamers away according to the research with almost half admitting they have turned down their partners in order to continue playing."

The original Christmas Tinner is made up of 12 layers of festive goodness, including turkey, gravy, sprouts, stuffing and potatoes, as well as two mince pies and, for some reason, scrambled egg.

But after being inundated with requests from customers, GAME has now launched both vegan and vegetarian options to make sure everyone can join in the fun this year.

The vegan tinner consists of scrambled tofu and facon, chocolate cake, custard, cabbage, bread sauce, and vegan beet wellington. Mmm.

While the veggie option has a dozen layers and switches out scrambled eggs and bacon for gingerbread pancakes and the traditional turkey for a nut roast.


And if that wasn't enough, you even get veggie pigs in blankets and yule log and Toblerone for dessert.

A GAME spokesperson said: "The original Christmas Tinner has been so popular with gamers over the last several years that this year we've been inundated with requests for a vegan or vegetarian alternative.

"There are now 3.5 million vegans in the UK and we have had to respond to the shift in consumer behaviour habits and demand and make sure our products are appealing to all."


All three Christmas Tinners are on sale for just £1.99 ($2.50) at GAME.
