Arguably the best part of Christmas dinner is available now in M&S stores.

Pigs in blankets are a favourite festive treat for some people and now they’re back in M&S stores.

Only usually available over the Christmas period, they’re a once a year treat, until now as M&S have brought pigs in blankets back into stores nationwide.

Packs of pigs in blankets with a maple glaze are on the shelves now, and are being billed as an addition to summer BBQs

The team at M&S say: “These pork sausages wrapped in smoked streaky bacon and come completed with a maple glaze. Ideal for throwing on the BBQ and bringing arguably the best thing about Christmas to your summer feast and are perfect nibbles before the main event.”

The pigs in blankets are part of a new BBQ range that includes: Japanese-inspired Yakitori chicken thigh skewers with a sticky glaze and king prawn skewers, which are coated in a chilli, garlic, and paprika marinade.

The skewers are ideal as a snack or served alongside toasted sesame seeds, spring onions, and chopped peanuts, with a zesty fresh slaw on the side.


Pigs in Blankets 346g, £4

Chilli, Garlic & Paprika Prawn Skewers 115g, £4

Chicken Thigh Yakitori Skewers 290g, £4

Each are available on the M&S 3 for £10 offer.

Earlier this year the supermarket brought back is famous ‘love sausage’ for Valentine’s Day.

In 2019, customers went wild for the UK supermarket’s heart-shaped pork sausage, marketed as a dine-in meal for couples on Valentine’s Day.

It was reported that the original Love Sausage sold out in a matter of minutes, with huge queues forming in stores across the UK as shoppers rushed to get their hands on the unusual treat.

The supermarket has also sold pigs in blankets flavoured crisps and a foot long pig in blanket – ideal for those that can’t get enough of the festive treat.
