‘Tis (nearly) the season to get merry and eat our body weight in chocolate but this festive season, our go-to supermarkets have some very different ideas in store for us.
From foot-long pigs in blankets to Brussels sprout flavoured crisps, these are the most bonkers Christmas 2018 foods on offer.
Foot-long pigs in blankets
They’re hands down the greatest part of our Christmas dinner and Aldi has answered every foodie’s prayers this year with the launch of foot-long pigs in blankets.
Yes, from December 6 the smoky bacon-wrapped sausages will be available to purchase at just £2.99 for a pack of two.
They’re designed to feed the whole family but we reckon they’ll be gone in next to no time…
Wensleydale with salted caramel and white chocolate
It can prove a tough decision choosing between gorging on the cheese board or sticking to your selection box but this year, Asda has the solution to all our festive problems.
Yes, the supermarket chain has launched Wensleydale infused with salted caramel and white chocolate – a feast for snack devotees.
Available from November 22, the divisive cheese weighs in at an impressive £1 so it would be rude not to at least try it out…
Mince pie ice cream cones
On average, the UK knocks back more than 300 million mince pies every Christmas so imagine our excitement upon news that Iceland is launching ice cream inspired by the festive treat.
From November 19, shoppers will be able to bag mince pie ice cream cones in store and online for just £1.50.
Festive tea bags
As the nights grow darker and we prepare ourselves for a nightly Netflix binge beneath the duvet (with the heating full whack) – nothing beats a hot cuppa after work.
But for those of you dedicated to being nothing but festive in the run-up to Christmas, look no further than Sainsbury’s for a range of themed tea bags.
The supermarket is now selling pigs in blanket flavoured tea and for the rare few of you who can’t wait to tuck into sprouts come Christmas, there’s a range dedicated to the green stuff.
We definitely won’t mind asking our work colleagues if they fancy a brew with a few of these hiding in our desk drawers…
Heston Blumenthal’s profiter’coals
You needn’t find a spot on the naughty list to sample this season’s most talked about Christmas treat – Heston Blumenthal’s profiter’coals.
A twist on the dessert classic, the chef’s profiterole ‘coals’ are filled with a flame-hued mandarin orange crème pâtissière.
But if that isn’t enough to make even the greatest of Scrooges amongst us feel a pang of hunger then they’re topped with a smoked orange caramel sauce and popping candy. Erm, yum.
Chocolate orange Viennetta
Nothing says Christmas more than your grandma offering around a generous scoop of Viennetta and this year, Asda has launched a chocolate orange-infused twist on the staple.
Available until January 6, the £2 tub is sure to fly from the shelves this Christmas.
Cinnamon-infused Coca Cola
You know it’s Christmas when the Coca Cola truck graces our television screens and this year, the fizzy drink giant has certainly upped its game.
Available in 500ml and 1.25 litre bottles, pop devotees can now purchase a cinnamon-infused twist on the zero sugar brand.
But those of you hoping to try out the new drink will need to hurry, as it’s a limited edition offer.
What happens when you combine two of the nation’s most divisive foods? You get Marmite-flavoured sprouts of course.
This year, Iceland is selling the controversial dinner accompaniment and they’re sure to spark outrage on Twitter…
This year’s Christmas crisps
Walkers never fails to deliver on the bizarre (and wonderful) so it comes as no surprise to hear that the crisp giant has some familiar flavours lined up this Christmas.
Children are sure to be steering clear of the brand’s Brussels sprout flavoured crisps while its pigs in blanket edition are at the top of our wish list this year.
For those who us who can’t bear sprouts, Walkers has even introduced a multipack with flavours including Glazed Ham, Turkey and Stuffing and Cheese and Cranberry.
But Walkers isn’t the only mega chain introducing us to some interesting flavours this season, as Iceland is also stocking a game-changing snack on its shelves.
The budget supermarket has launched £1 Christmas tree flavoured crisps and we can’t think of a more on-theme snack.
Mince pie flavoured peanut butter
For those of you who can’t wait until December to start celebrating, why not swap your morning peanut butter for a festive alternative?
Priced at just £1.99, Funky Nut co. is offering a mince pie twist on an old classic this Christmas and we can’t wait to stock up. Santa, we expect to find one of these in our stocking please.
