This heart-shaped pigs-in-blanket is the perfect Valentine's gift for your special one

Pig-in-blankets aren't just for Christmas

Valentine's Day is coming, which means you need to buy into the capitalist culture and purchase an item to show how much you love your significant other.

You could get flowers, or chocolates, or take them out for a fancy meal.

Or, you could get them a big sausage wrapped in bacon. Yes, really.

Marks and Spencers have revealed their 'Love Sausage' - under most circumstances, that sentence would usually end with someone being arrested and added to some sort of register. But this time, it is a "heart-shaped, lightly-truffled [sausage], wrapped in bacon" that the retailer has launched in time for Valentines Day.


The image shown on Twitter even show two fried eggs in the middle, though they apparently do not come with the Love Sausage.

It has gotten the reaction you would expect on social media.

The Love Sausage goes on sale February 8, and costs £5.

2018 was a big year for pigs-in-blankets - Aldi launched foot-long and triple-decker variants for Christmas, and a pub in Manchester posted a vacancy for a professional pigs-in-blankets taster.
