  • Aldi launches Specially Selected Pigs in Beds – piglets, atop an apple and honey meat ‘bed’, nestled on cranberry ‘pillows’ and tucked up under a ‘blanket’ of smoked bacon
  • Aldi’s NEW Pigs in Beds won ‘Best Pigs in Blankets’ at this year’s Quality Food Awards (QFA), where Aldi also won ‘Christmas Retailer of the Year’

Supermarket Aldi has revealed it is launching three award-winning porky delights as part of its festive food range, Pigs in Beds, Stags in Quilts, and Chilli Pigs in Blankets, starting from just £2.29 and in stores from 26th November.

This year Aldi has upgraded its sausage selection – not just wrapping them in a snug blanket, but instead tucking them into a cosy bed! New for 2021 and named ‘Best Pigs in Blankets’ at the Quality Food Awards, Aldi’s award-winning Pigs In Beds (£3.99, 456g), feature bitesize pork piglets, atop an apple and honey meat ‘bed’, nestled on cranberry ‘pillows’ and tucked up under a ‘blanket’ of smoked bacon to form a deluxe side for turkey. Available 19th December.

Those looking for a pork alternative should try Aldi’s NEW indulgent Specially Selected Stags in Quilts (£2.49, 240g 10 pack), crafted with succulent British wild venison and mouth-watering pork cranberry chipolatas, rolled in a generous amount of streaky British bacon. This premium festive trimming will be available in stores from 9th December.

Not only did Aldi’s Pigs in Beds win big at the QFA, the Specially Selected Honey Glazed Chorizo Wrapped in Pancetta (£2.49, 170g), on sale 26th November, were also highly commended. These 10 little chorizo piggies are hand-rolled in slices of spicy pancetta with a sweet honey glaze, a delicious alternative to the traditional pig in blanket. Also, back by popular demand, the Ghost Chilli Pigs in Blankets (£2.29, 240g), are perfect for those who want to add some spice to their Christmas dinner, on sale 2nd December.

Shoppers snow the drill… Get down to Aldi as quickly as they can to scoop up all the ultimate pork on fork options!

Aldi’s award-winning Pigs in Blankets range will be available in stores nationwide from 26th November 2021.
