P&G has created Pigs in Blankets and Christmas Turkey-flavoured Pringles for the festive season.

The limited-edition Merry Pringles crisps, which hit shelves on 4 October, supported by a £1m marketing push, come in seasonal cans that feature a box for customers to add their own special ­message "to share the fun of the giving season".

A P&G spokesman ­expected 10.2 million households to buy Pringles this Christmas.

The £1m campaign will include TV, press and ­online activity.
