"Perfect as an addition to a garden picnic or lunch, these bite-size wonders are perfect for the whole family," the rep added.

Let's just hope the rumoured shortage that almost affected Christmas pigs in blanket stock levels doesn't happen to the porky treats this spring.

Christmas shortage

Due to labour shortages, there were worries there wouldn't be enough workers to carry out some of the tasks for the festive period – including making the UK's favourite Christmas dinner addition.

Yes, those delicious pigs are most definitely popular.

Research conducted over the Christmas period revealed just how popular pigs in blankets are with Brits.

Who said they have to be reserved just for Christmas?

They were named as the nation's favourite seasonal snack.

According to the survey findings, 33% of Brits said the sausage and bacon treats were their favourite.

Meanwhile, they beat mince pies (26%) and turkey sarnies (21%) to the top spot.

Now all we need is for Aldi to bring back last Christmas's halloumi pigs in blanket and our life really will be complete!
