The funniest festive food and Christmas treats on sale

Three supermarkets have released foot-long pigs in blankets this year – need we say more.

Supermarkets, chefs and festive menu planners have certainly not held back this year. Numerous shops and restaurants are unveiling Christmas burgers, including the Chick n’Sours version (above), aptly named the twisted Xmas celebration burger. Combining fried thigh, kewpie mayo, cranberry hoisin, pigs in blankets, cheese, lettuce and fermented red cabbage, deconstruction seems the only way to tackle it. Also popular this year are Christmas dinner pizzas, monstrous mince pies and the use of a Yorkshire pudding as a tortilla wrap or a sandwich filling.

Here, we round up some of the most bizarre new editions to festive gastronomy, including cows in quilts, a £150 beef sandwich and a pasty containing an entire Christmas meal.
