How much does it cost?

You can pick up the giant Pig In Blanket Sausage Roll in store and online now.

It costs £5 and serves 10, making it just 50p a slice.

Two of my favourite things combined!

You’ll be looking at 142 calories per serving, or 1,420 for the whole thing!

It’s from the food to order range, so you have to oven cook it from chilled for 35 minutes before devouring it.

However, Asda is also selling them freshly cooked in store!
