Aldi is selling a VERY Christmassy new ice cream with a bizarre flavour – but would you try it? | The Sun

ALDI has turned Christmas dinner upside-down with its latest festive dessert — pigs in blanket-flavoured ice cream.

The budget supermarket will put the quirky treat on sale after it won a TV competition.

It wowed the judges on Channel 4's Aldi’s Christmas Secrets on Monday.

Farmers Ian Buxton, 62, and wife Lesley, 63, came up with the idea from their Yorvale farm and ice cream factory at Acaster Malbis, near York.

The £2.49 tub is described as “a smooth, savoury-sweet ice cream which is pork flavoured with a salted smoked maple syrup”.

Lesley said: “We knew it had to be unusual so we experimented with Brussels sprouts, bacon and chestnut, port-soaked cranberries and blue cheese and smoky bacon.

“Even a Christmas spiced ‘Cuthbert’ the carrot cake.

“But we finally landed on Pigs in Blankets as it was by far the best, and most festive tasting of them all.”

Mr Buxton added: “This is our first ever Aldi contract – an order of 25,000 is absolutely life changing.

“It’s great to think the whole country could be tucking into Pigs in Blankets ice cream at Christmas time.
