M&S just launched a foot-long sausage roll and it is the ultimate picnic food

Marks and Spencer are professionals at making our mouths water at the sight of delicious new items in its food hall, and its summer food range is no exception. Now that it’s well and truly picnic season (thanks summer for finally showing up), shoppers can count on M&S to supply all the tastiest picnic nibbles. Not only has M&S created pre-made picnic hampers to take the faff out of sorting food, but it has also introduced an epic foot-long sausage roll.

The M&S foot-long sausage roll is made up of outdoor-bred British pork & caramelised onions, wrapped in an all-butter pastry. On top of that, there’s a pork crackling and bacon crumb. Yum!

The mega sausage roll, or ‘Big Meaty Sausage’ as the M&S food team call it, is available to buy for £5 in stores now.

They shared an image of the sausage roll on Instagram before the late May bank holiday and it gained nearly 3,000 likes in five days. The caption alongside the image read: ‘Roll into the Bank Holiday and give our new Collection Foot-Long Sausage Roll a whirl… a big meaty sausage, what more could you want!?

‘Outdoor-bred British pork & caramelised onions encased in all-butter pastry with a pork crackling and bacon crumb – erm hello! Why not try dipping in our new Sriracha Ketchup for a spicy kick!’

TV chef Juliet Sear commented: ‘Wowzers!! Would love a plant kitchen version of this!’

‘Wow looks amazing’, a follower wrote in the comments.

Another fan said they’d ‘rather it was a foot long eclair’. Well, she’s in luck. As well as this impressive sausage roll, M&S also recently launched its Best-Ever Éclair, which is a whopping 7 inches long. The extra creamy éclair was such a hit, it was set to become M&S’s bestselling dessert ever.
