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.

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).
