ASDA is selling a range of delicious desserts for Christmas this year and one of them is giant eclair.
The foot-long pastry feeds ten people according to the supermarket's serving suggestions, but depends on how generous your portion sizes are.
Commenters on the Money Saver Online Facebook page, where the dessert was first spotted, questioned how many people it was for.
One said "Lol 10… that won't even feed one" and another "not a chance would that do 10 people".
The cream-filled choux finger will set you back £6 according to Donna Brough who runs the Bag A Weekly Bargain Facebook page and it will be available from December 18 – we've asked Asda to confirm the price and date.
At that price it works out as 60p per serving if you go with the recommended amount, but that's not enough of the pastry for some.
One person doing the maths said on Facebook: "So a 12 inch eclair is for 10 people. That's an inch and a couple of ml per person. Yeah right. Better get your own eclair.
Asda's regular fresh eclairs cost 79p for two, which means you can get seven packs for £5.53 – 14 normal size eclairs in total.
It's also doing frozen mini eclairs that cost £1 for 12.
The giant pastry is more decedent than a normal cream eclair though.
It's filled with chocolate mouse and caramel sauce, and topped with chocolate fondant, caramel flavour fudge icing as well as a sprinkling of gold dust.
If eclairs are not your thing or you simply can't wait until they go on sale, Asda has plenty of other tasty options for Christmas desserts too.
