Video games retailer GAME has once again released its Christmas dinner in a tin so that gamers needn’t waste time preparing and eating a three course Christmas dinner.
It would save all that washing up, in fairness…
And now vegetarians and vegans can get stuck in too – providing they have a tin opener, of course.
The GAME website describes it by saying: “The Christmas Tinner is back – a 3-course meal in a tin for those hardcore gamers that don’t want to leave their gaming chair on Christmas day. And due to popular demand, alternative options are now available for vegan and vegetarian gamers too.
“The all-day feast includes everything from scrambled eggs and bacon for breakfast, vegetarian pigs in blankets within the main, and mince pies as a snack. All you have to do is start from the top and work down from morning until dessert...
“You can now get your teeth into GAME play all day without having to miss out on a mouthful of your favourite festive food, listen to Uncle Nigel’s bad jokes or get forced into doing the washing up.”

All I would say is, I feel like the order of the original Christmas Tinner makes sense. But why are vegetarians having nut roast for breakfast and a Toblerone for a mid-lunch snack?
Because, yeah – that’s the only problem with a Christmas dinner in a tin…
