We're used to bonkers meat-based foods being released for Christmas, but Marks & Spencer has won the entire game with today's announcement of its Valentine's Day special, the Love Sausage:
Are you ready for our Love Sausage? Heart-shaped, lightly-truffled, wrapped in bacon and in store tomorrow. Say it with sausages – tag who you’ll be sharing your Love Sausage with this Valentine's Day! #MyMarksFave pic.twitter.com/VPQi4ENnsn

In true British fashion, the replies are mostly raised-eyebrow memes, plus a smattering of grim innuendos.
An unsolicited Love Sausage photo was also posted to the brand's Instagram:
From what we can surmise, the slightly-grubby-looking (and we mean that literally: it looks like a grub) sausage is made from pork, wrapped in bacon and infused with truffle, then shaped into a heart. All of which sounds absolutely delicious.
Sadly it's not on the website yet, giving us an error message which is basically the story of our lonely lives:
M&S also mentioned that there'll be a vegan V-Day special coming soon: if it's not made of aubergine, we're quitting the internet. 🍆🍆🍆
