Sainsbury’s is doing giant ‘pigs in beach towels’ for summer barbecue season

Who else is excited for these?

Published

Sainsbury's

We all know that pigs in blankets are the best part of Christmas dinner, but for some reason they don’t seem to get much of a look in for the rest of the year.

Well, not any more, as Sainsbury’s is launching some new giant ‘pigs in beach towels’ just in time for the summer barbecue season.

Made of jumbo British pork sausages wrapped in chestnut smoked streaky bacon, the pork treat is ideal for summer.

It’s launching with the rest of Sainsbury’s Summer Edition, which dropped both in stores and online from April 28th.

The supermarket sold over 20 million individual pigs in blankets at Christmas, meaning it’s a no-brainer to bring out a summer version of the festive treat.

The new pigs in beach blankets will set you back £4.50 for a pack.

The Summer Edition also features some brand new feta and spinach parcels for £2, falafel balls which will set you back £2, as well as a sweet potato falafel option (£2.50).

You can also grab harissa lamb and chicken koftas (£2.50), Raw Chilli & Garlic Prawn Skewers (£4) and Tandoori Vegan Kebabs (£2.50).

There’s also Halloumi & Vegetable Kebabs with Sweet Chilli Glaze (£3.75), as well as Mexican Corn Fritters (£2.50).

Out of all the weird and wonderful inventions for dogs these days, bacon-scented bubbles could be the one that reigns supreme.

It’s no secret that bacon is the way to the hearts of all pooches far and wide, so this new toy could be a real winner when it comes to being the favourite dog-parent.

The new scented bubbles come courtesy of Yorkshire-based pet product manufacturers Pets Pad, who have perfected a non-toxic, tasty and deliciously-scented bubble mixture perfect for both dogs and children.

Each bottle – which can come in 150ml and 500ml sizes – contain thousands of bubbles, equating for hours of back garden fun.

The bubble mixture can be used with the accompanying hand-held wand or, alternatively, can be poured inside bubble machines to keep your dogs entertained all day.

And the reviews for the bubbles have been glowing, with a now-viral Facebook post having been inundated with thousands of comments from happy pet owners and parents.

Commenting on the post, which was shared into the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK page, one social media user wrote: “Can confirm, my dog adores these.

“The bubbles are edible too, so it’s safe if your dog snaps at them and catches a few!”

Another commented: “Been using this for months on my dog Marley [sic] he’s obsessed with them it gives him so much exercise chasing the bubbles up and down the garden”.

Though a third pet owner warned: “Just don’t use them in the house… Bacon scented carpet for days”.

Pots of the Bacon Scented & Flavoured Dog Bubbles are available to buy online from Pets Pad now, and cost from just £2.25. Order yours here.

But now, the time to enjoy the tasty variety of chocolates as big sharing bars could soon be a reality.

Food news page UK Snack Attack was the one to break the very exciting news, sharing two images of The Purple One and Orange Crunch sharing chocolate bars.

They wrote on their Instagram page: “The sun is shining, birds and chirping, and its only 232 days until Christmas! You know what that means? Its time to start leaking the Christmas Chocolate!
