Just when you thought pigs in blankets couldn’t get any better, Morrisons has gone and changed the game.
But pigs and blankets are the perfect Christmas snack, what could possibly be added to make them better, I hear you ask?
Cheese, that’s what. Pigs in blankets with a melted, gooey cheese centre – just take my money now.
Morrisons’ cheesy version is filled with aged Red Leicester cheese, with the British sausage outer layer wrapped in dry cured, smoked and streaky bacon.
Campbell Breakwell, Sausage Buyer at Morrisons (great job title), said: “We know our customers love cheese and pigs in blankets so we combined the two for the ultimate Christmas treat.”
They’re out already, in stores nationwide and online until December 24th – so you best start stocking up.
The Best Cheesy Pigs in Blankets will set you back £3 for a pack of 10, although you can currently get two packs for £5 – you can grab them online here.
In other good news for pigs in blankets fans, Aldi is doing a massive two metre long version, and it looks incredible.
Iceland is now selling Chicken Smileys for the ultimate nostalgia tea
Everyone will remember potato smileys from their younger days – or maybe you still have them as a sneaky tea occasionally (I definitely do).
They went great with chicken nuggets, so what better way to upgrade the humble smiley than by replacing the potato with chicken?
That’s exactly what Iceland has done, releasing some limited edition Chicken Smileys to celebrate its 50th anniversary.
Iceland’s Chicken Breast Smileys are 100% chicken breast breaded in the traditional smile shape, and will set you back £2.00 for a 356g bag.
Shoppers are loving the concept too, as the news of the launch was shared on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group, with one person commenting: “Finally something good to come out of 2020”.
Richard Walker, managing director at Iceland Foods, said: “Our 50th year is a great excuse to celebrate with some of our dishes from over the years, we’ve worked our way through the archives and selected the very best that our customers will love.
“Throughout the rest of the year we’ll be celebrating in different ways and we’re looking forward to bringing the party into our stores and customers’ freezers the way we know best – with great food.”

Shoppers are loving this new £1 lavender pillow spray from Poundland that ‘helps you sleep’
I need this!
Poundland has launched a lavender-scented pillow spray and everyone is raving about how relaxing it is.
Lavender, an anxiolytic, increases levels of calm and reduces agitation – it’s something we all need to cover our house in at the minute.
Many other lavender sleep sprays exist on the market but often, they come with a heavy price tag. Neom’s ‘Perfect Night’s Sleep Pillow Mist’ will set you back £20 for just 30ml of the relaxing spray.
And Lush’s ‘Twilight body spray’ is also £20. Poundland’s £1 ‘Land of Nod’ spray is being hailed as the perfect dupe!
A savvy shopper shared the find on Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group on Facebook.
Lauren wrote: “Got this spray today and it smells exactly like the Lush ‘Twilight’ spray I usually buy for £20!
“Definitely want to try more of the range, they had shower gels, bath bombs, soap bars all sorts, well worth a look.”
The post has racked up over 2,000 comments with many people excited about the find.
The range also features Shower Gel, Bath Powder, a roll-on Essential Oil, Bath Bar plus Bath Fizzers for the ultimate relaxing evening.
Everything in the range is all a pound of course!
A lot of people are saying it is great for kids and others are pointing out that the spray is perfect at the minute as many people are struggling to sleep in the current situation.
One commented: “I will try anything. Three hours sleep last night.” Another simply added ‘Need this!’.
Sadly, you can’t shop online at Poundland so you’ll have to grab it in store.
