There's a lot of stress involved when it comes to organising Christmas dinner, and now there doesn't have to be!

Christmas is supposed to be a time spent with family (or alone) with the dinner table stockpiled with food, eating and laughing our way into a food coma.

But for those of us who prefer to stay away from family, "Christmas Tinner" will ensure that you still have a full course Christmas meal at the flip of a can...

Tech retailer GAME released an affordable £2 ($4 NZD) Christmas dinner in a can in 2013 for hard-core gamers who spend their Christmas playing games online and don't want to leave their chairs.

This cylinder can of three-in-one Christmas dinner includes turkey, potatoes, broccoli, bread sauce, sprouts, stuffing, and mince pies.

This year, there's now a new release of the Christmas Tinner cans that include a vegan and vegetarian take on the more Christmas classic dishes with a whopping 12 layer plant-based dinner.

This includes a chocolate cake with custard to start the layer, then vegan gravy, mushroom wellington, pigs in aubergine blankets, tofu and stuffing, as well as your go-to winter vegetables including squash, carrots, sprouts and broccoli, red cabbage, and parsnips, vegan cheese, olives and grapes, and vegan bacon.

The vegetarian can is even wilder as it's packed with 12 layers of nut roast, cauliflower cheese, gingerbread pancakes, Toblerone, and potatoes, and there's also halloumi in there among the vegetables.

While it's not exactly the most conventional option for dinner, the Christmas Tinners have already sold out online!
