Asda is selling a GIANT mince pie that's THREE times the size of a normal one – and it only costs £1.50

The super-size Christmas staple measures seven inches in diameter, three and half centimeters deep and weighs 435g.

Asda has launched the mince pie due to demand from shoppers.

The supermarket also saw a rise in the number of independent bakeries in London offering them.

Their version contains the same recipe that goes into the mince pies served in Asda cafe's.

A pack of six mince pies currently costs 97p at Asda, with each pie containing 220 calories.

We've asked Asda how many calories is in the giant version – which is in stores from November 22 – and will update this article when we know.

Ciara Loker, Asda product developer said: “Mince pies are a staple of the festive season, and customers are increasingly looking for new and exciting varieties they can enjoy over the festive season.

"Following feedback that one was never enough, we wanted to create a delicious dessert guests can enjoy, one slice at a time.”

This year the supermarket is also selling caramel crumble mince pies as well as brandy butter topped ones.

The mince pie flavour is a top trend in shops this Christmas with supermarkets also selling mince pie cookies and fudge. 

Iceland is even selling mince pie flavoured ice cream. 

M&S is doing prosecco infused mince meat if you want to jazz up your homemade versions.
