Asda is launching plum and sloe GIN cocktail sausages – but they cost £3 a pack

ASDA is launching festive plum and sloe GIN infused cocktail sausages and they taste delicious.

The posh pork bangers are part of the supermarket’s premium Extra Special range and cost £2.98 or two packs for £5.

They’re pretty pricey compared to a non-boozy version of the bangers which cost 48p cheaper from Tesco at £2.50 each.

The new foods don’t land in shelves until October 29 but we’ve already had a sneak peek at what’s to come.

The party snacks pack a sweet, fruity punch with every bite but we’re not going to lie, we can’t really taste the gin.

That’s probably because each sausage contains less than 0.5 per cent ABV , so you won’t need ID to buy them.

Here's how to cut the cost of your grocery shop

SAVING on your shop can make a big difference to your wallet. Here are some tips from Hannah Maundrell, editor of, about how you can cut the cost of your shopping bills:

  • Write yourself a list – Only buy items that you need. If it isn’t on your list, don’t put it in the trolley
  • Create a budget – Work out a weekly budget for your food shopping
  • Never shop hungry – you are far more likely to buy  more food if your tummy is rumbling
  • Don’t buy pre-chopped veggies or fruit – The extra they’ll charge for chopping can be eye watering
  • Use social media – follow your favourite retailers to find out about the latest deals
  • Be disloyal – You may want to go to different stores to find the best bargains
  • Check the small print –  It’s always worth checking the price per kg/lb/litre when comparing offers so you’re making a like for like decision as a bigger box won’t necessarily mean you get more
  • Use your loyalty cards – Don’t be afraid to sign up to them all. They all work slightly differently – work out what bonus suits you better and remember to trade in your points for additional rewards

You can definitely taste the plum and sloe fruits in the porkers but they’ll never replace a real glass of gin and tonic.

In each 270g pack you’ll get 18 cocktail sausages which Asda recommends serves six people.

That makes three sausages each, which contains 111 calories. They’re made with 77 per cent British prime pork – and they’re Red Tractor approved.

The sausages are raw and aren’t Christmas party ready, so you’ll need to stick them in the oven before serving.

We’ve not seen any other boozy sausages in supermarkets yet but last year Aldi launched prosecco-infused cocktail sausages.

Asda has also turned the best bits of Christmas dinner into a snack with its turkey and stuffing flavoured crisps.

It might be Halloween soon but retailers are already cashing in on Christmas.

Eagle-eyed shoppers have already spotted festive sarnies at Boots, including flavours like Turkey, Bacon & Stuffing, Parsnip Fritter & Butternut Squash and Pigs Under Blankets sandwiches.

Tesco is selling an After Eights advent calendar and it’s in the shape of Big Ben – although it might not be worth the money.
