You may feel it’s a little too early to be talking about Christmas right now, but it’s that time of year again.
The time of year when all UK supermarkets start releasing their festive food menus.
ASDA, Aldi, Morrisons, Tesco, and more have all made announcements about what festive foods are going to be hitting shelves at their stores across up and down the country in the run up to the big day this year, but it’s an addition to Sainsbury’s Christmas range that’s caught our eye the most – and we know we’re not the only ones excited by it.
Pigs in blankets are an absolute staple of any Christmas food menu, and are quite-rightly raved about by snackers at any chance they get, but Sainsbury’s putting a twist on the classic.
If you’re looking for something a little different to tuck into, then Sainsbury’s pigs in blankets will be hitting stores early next month.
Taking everything we know and love about the porky treat and combining that with current rise in popularity of the traditional Japanese dish of sushi, Sainsbury’s pigs in “sticky snowy” blankets are wrapped in cranberry sauce, nori seaweed and sushi rice.
They’re then topped with more of the berry condiment and crispy onions.
The pigs in blankets sushi will set you back just £3, and are available from November 1.
Another fish dish hitting the shelves as part of Sainsbury’s festive range this year is a crab and lemon mousse starter that’s made of layered crab mouse and lemon mousse, topped with white crab meat.
On top of that, the retailer will also be selling a whole lobster that’s ready to eat for just £12 from December 20.
Other highlights on the this year’s menu include a pork and cranberry wreath (£6.50), Brussels sprout and parsnip snacking bhajis (£1), maple and marmalade gammon (£15), and mini chocolate log ‘Yule Pups’ (£2.20).
Sainsbury’s has more than 300 new festive food and drink products to tempt shoppers this year.

Trailer released for new Netflix drama series starring Michelle Keegan airing in the new year
The first trailer for a new Netflix show starring Michelle Keegan and Joanna Lumley has now been released.
In case you hadn’t heard, the highly-anticipated new crime drama show, which is titled Fool Me Once, is an adaptation of Harlan Coben’s popular novel, and is set to air on the streaming service as soon as 2024 arrives.
But now, the release of the first trailer has proved it looks brilliantly binge-worthy.
The eight-part series follows Manchester-born actress Michelle Keegan’s character, Maya Starn, who is a former special ops pilot struggling with the tragic murder of her husband, Joe, who is played by Richard Armitage.
Detective Sergeant Sami Kierce, who is portrayed by Adeel Akhtar, conducts the investigation into Joe’s death while wrestling with his own hidden truths.
Things start to get interesting though, when she observes via the nanny cam her supposedly deceased husband playing with their baby daughter in her own home.
Meanwhile, Maya’s niece and nephew embark on the journey to seek answers about their own mother’s murder which took place months ago.
But one question remains – could the two mysteries be related?
The first trailer for the show was released by Netflix at the end of last week, and it showcases a star-studded cast with the likes of Dame Joanna Lumley from Absolutely Fabulous, Adeel Akhtar from Sherwood, Emmett J Scanlan from Peaky Blinders, and Dino Fetscher from Paranoid.
The streaming service has unveiled a selection of first look images, showcasing a star-studded cast with the likes of Dame Joanna Lumley from Absolutely Fabulous, Adeel Akhtar from Sherwood, Emmett J Scanlan from Peaky Blinders, and Dino Fetscher from Paranoid.
Filming took place in Yorkshire, where production crews were spotted in the Burdock Way area near the centre of Halifax, but Michelle Keegan was also spotted filming in Manchester city centre back in May.
Fool Me Once will air on Netflix in the UK on Monday 1 January.

Timothée Chalamet thinks the sexiest British accent is… Hull?
Hollywood A-lister Timothée Chalamet has revealed the British accents he finds sexiest, and the results are unexpected.
The 27-year-old star of Wonka said that a Hull accent is up there as one of his favourites, along with Italian and French.
How does Timothée Chalamet even know about Hull’s existence, never mind know what the accent sounds like?
The star, who rose to astronomical fame back in 2017 with his portrayal of Elio in Call Me By Your Name, and has since starred in blockbusters such as Dune and Little Woman, revealed his favourite access on the current Wonka press tour, The Hoot reports.
Chalamet appeared on LadBible TV talking to Keegan-Michael Key, where they discuss the internet’s biggest debates.
In a segment where they debate the British accent, Chalamet goes on to reveal his top three British accents… and the answers are not what you would expect.
Firstly he admits his favourite is the Hull accent, he says: “I like the Hull accent. Hull is sexy”.
We’ve never thought of the Hull accent as particularly sexy before, but we will absolutely take it.
He then goes onto say: “I like Hull, Essex is my top three, and I like a middle-aged Yorkshire accent.”
We’re not sure the difference between a Yorkshire and a middle-aged Yorkshire accent, but what Timothée wants then Timothée will get.
In the comments, one person said: “I’m from Hull and nobody in Hull likes the Hull accent lol.”
Another joked: “suddenly i have the hull accent.”
And someone else wrote: “good day to have a hull accent.”
So thank you Timmy, we’d have to say that we wholeheartedly agree and that our accent is in fact, the sexiest of them all.
Next time we’d like to see you attempt a Yorkshire accent on the big screen, because we’re sure you’d absolutely smash it.
