The supersize sausage-in-bacon showstopper hits shelves on December 5th and will set you back just £4.99.

Aldi sure knows how to nail Christmas dinner as the supermarket has revealed it's launching a giant pig in blanket that's over six foot long.

The discount store claims it will be the biggest sausage-in-bacon snack available this year as it measures over two metres (6ft 5in) in length.

The popular porky treat is set to trump all others and is already being hailed as a Christmas miracle by food fans across the UK.

Aldi's meaty showstopper, which is expected to hit shelves on December 5th, is twice the size of Lidl's three-foot wiener and is fast becoming a must-have December delicacy.

Unlike traditional bite-size pieces, this enormous porker is just one long sausage wrapped in lashings of bacon and is curled into a salty swirl.

The budget shop suggests the gammon banquet is oven-baked in its entirety, rather than chopped up beforehand, so you can pretty much guarantee it will impress your family, friends and festive guests.

The colossal pig in blanket will set you back just £4.99 but is launching as part of the shop's Specialbuys range, which means it will only be available for a limited time.

You can pick one up in one of Aldi's 830 UK stores once the season of mince pies and mulled wine begins, but keep an eye out for the pork whopper on their website to pre-order online.

An Aldi spokesperson said: "We Brits love a good Pig in Blanket, but there never seems to be quite enough to go around the Christmas table.

"If you can relate, you won’t want to miss the latest tasty creation from supermarket Aldi."
