Christmas dinner in a can gets a vegan makeover but we're still grossed out

trending 13/12/2019

Christmas dinner is possibly the best thing about the holiday season - think turkey, stuffing, gravy, salads, bbq, pavlova... our mouths are watering just thinking about it. 

But for some reason back in 2013 UK gaming company GAME first released it's 'Christmas Tinner', a Christmas dinner all in one, layered into a can, for anyone who didn't have time or the energy for a proper festive feast. 

The company have been releasing the tins especially at Christmas over the years, but this year they've added a new spin, where vegans and vegetarians can get involved. We're not sure if our plant-based-diet mates should be offended or honoured tbh...

"The Christmas Tinner is back – a 3-course meal in a tin for those hardcore gamers that don’t want to leave their gaming chair on Christmas Day. And due to popular demand, alternative options are now available for vegan and vegetarian gamers too," reads the GAME website.

"The all-day feast includes everything from scrambled eggs and bacon for breakfast, vegetarian pigs in blankets within the main, and mince pies as a snack. All you have to do is start from the top and work down from morning until dessert..."

"You can now get your teeth into GAME play all day without having to miss out on a mouthful of your favourite festive food, listen to Uncle Nigel’s bad jokes or get forced into doing the washing up."
