Aldi’s two-metre pig-in-blanket is finally available to buy

Twisted: Unserious food tastes seriously good.

If you like sausage meat, bacon, and massively over-indulging, then today is set to be one of the most exciting days of your calendar year.

That’s because Aldi’s much-heralded, highly anticipated, totally over-the-top two-metre-long pig-in-blanket is now available for purchase in stores all over the country.

Excited? Nervous? Queasy?

Personally, I’m all three.

Aldi’s Kevin the Carrot toy caused absolute pandemonium when it was put on sale, check out the footage here:

The supermarket chain says that the two-metre porky pleasure portal is the largest pig-in-blanket sold in the United Kingdom.

Now, I’ve got to hand it to Aldi. This year, whenever I’ve felt a little down-in-the-dumps, they’ve come through for me with all manner of exciting and unusual products, typically through their Specialbuy promotion.

Indeed, in the run up to Christmas we’ve been treated to a festive candy cane gin liqueur, super spicy pigs in blankets made using the world’s second hottest chilli, a six litre bottle of Prosecco and much more besides.

Anyway, back to the matter at hand.

The colossal pig-in-blanket will set you back just £4.99, which strikes me as a particularly reasonable price considering the thing’s gargantuan size.

As any Christmas dinner connoisseur will tell you, pigs in blankets really are the star of the show when it comes to chowing down on festive fare.

But if you’ve got something of a sweet tooth, fear not, because we’ve also brought you news of some special holiday-themed products from some of the most well-known retailers around, like these Grinch-themed cookies from Nestlé Toll House, and Costco’s super boozy Eggnog, which has 13.9% ABV.

The countdown to Christmas Day is now well and truly underway, so why not stick on a radio station that plays nothing but 24/7 Christmas music, get your presents wrapped up, and treat yourself to some of the plethora of festive-themed produce that there’s been news of recently. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, after all.
