Aldi is bringing out something special this festive season and is super-sizing possibly one of the best snacks ever made - the pig in a blanket.

The supermarket has revealed it will be selling foot-long pigs in blankets for the second year running to sit alongside your Christmas turkey.

If this wasn't good enough it is also selling pigs in blanket trios, which means three sausages wrapped in bacon.

What more could you need?

The supermarket will be launching its XL pigs in blankets on December 6 as part of its Christmas range.

Costing £2.99 for a pack of two, the 12-inch sausages are wrapped in streaky bacon and Aldi says they are "perfect for sharing" (yeah, right!).
