When it comes to festive food, we thought we’d seen it all – the good, the bad and the ugly.
For instance, last week frozen food specialists Iceland started stocking their shelves with Christmas tree flavoured crisps, made from oil extracted from actual pine needles.
Before that, Aldi launched foot-long pigs in blankets and Tesco started selling pigs in duvets.
The items in question are flavoured teas – but we’re not talking about your standard everyday peppermint or berry flavour drinks.
No, the supermarket have created tea bags based on two major staples of a traditional Christmas dinner .
And those are brussels sprouts and pigs in blankets, the latter of which is said to feature the smoky flavour of sausages, sage and rosemary.
Yep, you read that right.
Both of the new teas are suitable for vegans and they are priced at £1 for a box of 20 tea bags.
The bizarre product was first spotted by shoppers on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group and has been dividing opinions across social media, with hundreds of people horrified by the mere idea of drinking the stuff.
One person said: “Cant think of anything worse than a stewed cup of brussels sprouts tea. That’d be brutal.”
Another wrote: “Nooooo, it’s just so wrong!”
A third added: “Is it April 1st?”
“OMG…. Sainsbury’s pigs in blankets & brussels sprouts flavoured tea… Think i will stick to my PG Tips lol,” posted a fourth.
However not everyone was opposed to trying them.
“Have to try this,” commented one user.
“Not the sprouts one, but I’ll try the pigs in blankets,” commented a second.
