The festive treats are made up of seasoned sausage meat wrapped in streaky bacon and then hand-rolled in puff pastry.

They are also cooked in stores so customers can enjoy a fresh out the oven experience.

A spokesperson for Asda told the Mirror: "Our Christmas sandwich range is always popular with customers every year and this year we wanted to create something that's also made for on-the-go eating and includes a family favourite - pigs in blankets.

"Asda's Pig in Blanket Sausage Roll is a delicious take on a Christmas classic, and what's more, it's produced in the UK.
