So you'll be pleased to hear that Aldi is now selling super-hot Pigs In Blankets to liven up your festive spread a little.
New this Christmas, the Scorpion Chilli Pigs In Blankets are not for the faint hearted, using the super fiery breed of chilli sourced especially from Trinidad.
According to the Guinness Book Of Records, the Scorpion Chilli - or 'Butch T' pepper, as it is also known - was ranked the hottest in the world in 2011, and held the title for three consecutive years.
It is said to measure around 1,463,700 Scoville heat units, compared to a score of 2,500-5,000 for the humble jalapeno pepper. Our eyes are watering even thinking about it.
Made from 100 per cent British Pork, the Christmas classic with a twist is sure to spark conversation this Christmas, even if it does leave those who can't handle the heat dashing for a glass of water.
You'll be able to buy them in all stores across the UK from the 28th November, and one 240g packet costs just £2.29.
But if you don't fancy the hot stuff, why not opt for some of Aldi's other festive treats instead?
Also on offer are Stuffing Baubles, (£2.49), which are basically little balls of British pork stuffing with a choice of Barber's Cheddar Cheese & Chutney or Caramelised onion toppings.
Three Little Pigs, (£2.99), "tasty caramelised onion British pork cocktail sausages wrapped in rashers of honey cured smoked bacon," or Mini Beef Wellingtons, (£2.99), "made with British beef fillet, buttery puff pastry and a rich mushroom and thyme duxelle."
Plus, they've got veggie and vegan delights covered, too.
Grab some vegan sausage rolls for as little as 75p, and for the veggies (and everyone else, tbh) there's a baked camembert stuffed in the centre of a sage and onion tear and share bread, (£3.99).
At this rate, you'll be full before the turkey, sprouts, potatoes and gravy even arrive on the table.
But then again, would it even be Christmas if you weren't?
