M&S Love Sausage from Finnebrogue back on the shelves for Valentine’s Day

The iconic M&S Love Sausage is back and hitting the shelves once again just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Developed by long-term local M&S supplier, Finnebrogue Artisan, the original meaty delight is back by popular demand alongside a whole host of love-themed treats.

The original heart-shaped Love Sausage – a delicious outdoor-bred pork sausage with a hint of truffle, wrapped in smoked bacon – became a viral hit when it was first unveiled in 2019 and has been met with similar fanfare ever since.

Nicola Finlay, Regional Manager for M&S in Northern Ireland said: “Sourcing locally is important to us. Over the past year, M&S has been sourcing more Northern Irish products than ever before.  We are passionate about high-quality, locally sourced and affordable products.

“The M&S Love Sausage is a real success story for Downpatrick’s Finnebrogue Artisan. It has truly captured hearts on both sides of the Irish Sea! Finnebrogue has been supplying to M&S for almost 20 years and we are delighted to continue the relationship.”

Councillor Patrick Brown of Newry, Mourne and Down District Council commented: “As a representative of the District I am extremely proud to be from Downpatrick, the home of the M&S Love Sausage. Finnebrogue Artisan is renowned for producing innovative, high quality, local produce and the Love Sausage is a prime example of just that.”

Alongside the Love Sausage, M&S has introduced a whole host of Valentine’s Day themed gifts, treats and savoury dishes, including deliciously light and moreish D’Éclair My Love eclairs, pork, and beef ragu filled Love Heart Ravioli, and a Date Night Share-cuterie Grazing Box complete with cheese, heart-shaped chorizo and a chorizo rose centre.

Further beautiful gifts and treats including Puppy Love – cherry and cola flavoured jellies. For a VERY SPECIAL gift following on from the hugely popular light up chocolate box at Christmas, is an adorable You Light Up My Life Valentine’s Day chocolate box filled with milk, dark and white heart shaped chocolates, with an LED light!

Plus, Love Cocoon Colin and Connie were such a success last year, they have now launched separately for customers to choose their perfect duo.

Finally, for those who want to send some love in the post BRILLIANT blooms and ADORABLE letter box gifts and hampers are great options if you’re not able to see a loved one on the day.
