The mini Mac & Pigs bites are individual mini-sized portions of creamy macaroni cheese with a pig in blanket in the middle. The new party food additions would be perfect paired with a glass of your favourite festive tipple and are sure to pop up at a Christmas party near you soon.

The question is: when will they start doing full-sized versions?
