Let’s be honest, we spend the whole year waiting for grandma’s Christmas dinner just to hog the bowl of pigs in blankets well into Boxing Day.
But what if we told you that Aldi has just changed the festive game by introducing the world to halloumi wrapped in bacon? Yep, we’re just going to take a minute to let that sink in.
Unveiled as part of the budget chain’s Christmas 2019 food range, the moreish treat is sure to top every present you’d ever find underneath the tree.
The even greater news? The cheesy must-haves will drop on December 5, meaning we can trial them well ahead of the big day (you know, to make sure they’re good enough for the family). They will be available in-store for £2.49.
Remember last Christmas when @AldiUK’s foot-long pig in blanket went viral?— Harry Wallop (@hwallop) October 1, 2019
Well, it’s now the 2-metre-long pig in blanket. Plus pig-in-blanket topped Yorkshire pud, pig-in-blanket kebab & p-i-b with scorpion chilli.

But this isn’t the only incredible item Aldi has gifted the nation, as an awe-inspiring 6ft long pig in blanket is also returning to grace the dinner table this Christmas.
Priced at £4.99 and available for a limited time only, they’re sure to fly from the shelves.
Elsewhere in the competitive supermarket world, Asda is offering customers everything from a super-sized pig in blanket to a tree-shaped ‘Christmas pizza’, which comes complete with a roast dinner (we’re talking stuffing balls, turkey and of course, more pigs in blankets).
If that’s not enough to see you frantically digging out last year’s Christmas ornaments, Marks and Spencer recently unveiled its best festive food range to date with a full vegan dinner, Sticky Toffee Trifle (£12) and the British supermarket’s Biggest Ever Éclair (£10) sure to tempt Santa into hunting through the fridge.
With just 84 days to go until the big day (yep, we’re already counting), it’s high time we started making a shopping list and checking it twice...
