A fish and chip shop has created what they’re calling the world’s largest pig in a blanket – a huge 2ft long sausage wrapped in bacon, battered and deep fried.
Owner Dino Papas, 29, said that the massive ‘hog in duvet’ – as it is dubbed – will make dreams come true.
The 4,000 calorie festive feast weighs over 2lbs and will satisfy all of your pork cravings in one sitting – if you even manage to chomp it all down.
Dino has been running Papa’s Fish & Chips with his brother George, 28, for a decade and the business has been owned by the family since 1966.
He said they hoped the comically large pigs in a blanket would bring some Christmas cheerfulness after a dreary year marred by the pandemic.
Dino said: ‘It’s been a difficult year but we’re trying to bring some big Christmas cheerfulness.’

The owner said the pigs in blanket is his favourite Christmas staple.
Dino added: ‘It’s the largest sausage we could get, we wouldn’t be able to get a bigger sausage in the fryer.
‘It’s absolutely massive and it has proved really popular already.
‘We are almost selling out of them every day because people absolutely love them.
‘People love pigs in blankets and people in Yorkshire love battered sausage, so this collaboration is a dream come true.
‘We love getting into the Christmas spirit and last year we made a foot-long pig in blanket, so wanted to go one better this year.
‘Can you have too much of a good thing? We don’t think so, so we thought we’d got for it.’

The chippy uses 400g of British pork sausage and more than 250g of bacon and wraps it in Christmas paper.
Festive food lovers can get their hands the indulgent treat for £3.99 over the festive season and all proceeds made from the sales are going to the Cash For Kids charity.
Dino added: ‘We are a family business and believe in helping out as many children and family charities locally as possible.’
