IF THE old saying about how ‘the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’ are indeed true, then this could be just the thing.
Tell someone you are planning on giving them a “love sausage” this Valentine’s Day and the chances are you’ll either get a few funny looks or a slap for your troubles.
But this is no ordinary love sausage.
This is a ‘Love Sausage’ from Marks and Spencer and it is the kind of savoury treat that’s guaranteed to have you falling in love with fry-ups all over again.
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

Launched to coincide with Valentine's Day, the retailer took to Twitter to unveil its new meaty product.
"Are you ready for our Love Sausage?" It reads
"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!"
Put simply, it’s a heart-shaped, lightly-truffled sausage perfectly wrapped in some delicious looking bacon and accompanied with two fried eggs, which are sold separately.
Sold as the perfect delicacy to share with a loved one on Valentine’s Day, the truth of the matter is that most will probably opt to scarf the whole lot themselves.
An M&S spokesperson said of the product: "We’re encouraging customers to start the fun of Valentine’s Day celebrations early with a love sausage for breakfast.
"The recipe includes a hint of delicious truffle to make it extra special and my top tip is to crack two eggs into the centre of the heart, eight minutes before serving for the breakfast of dreams."
The company has also released a sourdough loaf with "I love U" written on it.
This kind of meat-based treat could end up giving you palpitations given the amount of fat and grease involved, which, in a weird way, is kind of romantic.
