He’s making a list, he’s checking it twice! He’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice… Santa Claus is comin’ to town!


Not only him, but a new variation on pigs in blankets called pigs in duvets to boot!

It may be 91 days till Christmas, or 13 weeks to make it sound a bit better, but that doesn’t mean we can’t prepare well in advance and what better to do that than with meat?

I’m sorry to disappoint my veggie brothers and sisters but this article is about the glorification of consuming meat. I’m sorry :(


So yeah, pigs in duvets! What’s going on there? Nothing too drastic. Tesco have simply replaced the bacon part of the seasonal standard with a puff pastry parcel.

A 400g box of the succulent bad boys will set you back a reasonable £5 and comes with a sweet cranberry dip, The Sun writes, in case you weren’t already hooked.

You’ll have to wait a few more weeks however, as he treats don’t go on sale until November 12.

Actually, forget what I said a bit ago, veggies – if you’re still here – don’t worry, Tesco are also releasing a vegan roll selection on the same day.

Don’t they look horrible? Only kidding! They actually sing off the page. I can smell them.

A 270g box comes in at £2 and holds three Moroccan spiced cauliflower rolls, three herby roasted butternut squash rolls and three katsu curried vegetable rolls. A lot of variety we’re in for this Christmas, it looks.


If all that wasn’t good enough, then how about we drool over the foot-long pigs in blankets which Aldi (honestly who else) will be dropping come December 6, when the rest of their Christmas range launches. It’ll put you back just £3.

The range itself will also include Methuselah Prosecco, an Exquisite Chocolate Carousel, and Specially Selected Caviar, cause it just isn’t December 25th without some salt-cured eggs!

Best thing I’ve heard today that Aldi are launching footlong pigs in blankets for Christmas what a delight.

Another said:

Aldi selling foot long pigs in blankets for Christmas is probably the greatest Christmas news ever. Like EVER!

A third added:

This picture though. Foot-long pigs in blankets! And then a three-pronged sausage situation wrapped in bacon! Oh my word, Aldi.

Boy I’ll tell ya, I can’t wait for the holiday season. Films, laughter with the family, alcohol, present opening, games, alcohol, song and dance, drinking at 11.00am, figgy pudding, mistletoe, alcohol and of course, them saucy roast potatoes!

Ugh, gimme!
