Marks & Spencer & # 39; Love Sausage & # 39; launch for Valentine's Day creates hilarious comments - The Independent

Marks & Spencer has announced the launch of a new food product for Valentine's Day: the "Love Sausage", a heart-shaped pork sausage wrapped in belly bacon.

Because nothing says immortal romance better than a sausage of 460 g.

As can be expected, the internet reacted with a great deal of disbelief to the unveiling of the supermarket, many pointing to the clear sexual connotations of the meat product.

"Someone in marketing has to be very satisfied with himself because he succeeds in sneaking this past behind their boss," says a person tweeted.

"I really thought I was promoting tweets from @AnnSummers when I saw this," another one comment.

The Love Sausage, which costs £ 5 and is available in stores from February 8, has been described by the retailer as the "ultimate meaty delight for Valentine's breakfast on bed & # 39 ;.

The product does not come with eggs, as the promotional picture suggests.

However, it comes with a hint of truffle, which is specially included because of the alleged aphrodisiac properties of the ingredient.

"We encourage customers to start the Valentine's Day early with a" Love Sausage "as breakfast," says Sarah Loxton, product developer at Marks & Spencer.

"The recipe contains a touch of delicious truffle to make it extra special and my top tip is to crack two eggs in the middle of the heart, eight minutes before serving for breakfast of dreams."

Some have expressed an interest in the purchase of the Love Sausage & # 39; for their significant other on Valentine's Day, others have expressed their explicit opposition to the product.

I have to say that I really do not want that thing anywhere near me, & # 39; a person said wrote. "It looks like the obvious and then someone went there with a cleaver. #Dontsayitwithsausages."

"Love is dead, long live Satan," another person added.
