Who is Percy Pig?

Percy Pigs are a mix of raspberry, strawberry, cherry and grape flavours and have been a huge hit for the supermarket since their launch in 1992.

A familiar face on M&S products, Percy is now available in the form of sweets, chocolates, Easter eggs and advent calendars, and his popularity has spawned a range of friends, including Penny pig.

Seasonal treats

For Christmas, fans can tuck into new Percy pies - crisp pastry with a fruity filling, Percy flavoured sponge and pink fondant icing, topped with Percy sweets.

Alongside this, M&S also recently unveiled its Halloween range. Shoppers can look forward to a scary Colin the Caterpillar cake ( Frankencolin the Caterpillar), vegan Firecracker Ghouliflower Popcorn, Eerie Eyeball Margarita Pizza, Mummy Meatloaf Toffee Apple Bangers and Yummy Mummy Yumnuts.

For those already looking forward to Christmas, the full 2020 Marks & Spencer Christmas food range has been announced and includes over 1,000 newly developed tasty treats.

April Preston, director of product development at M&S said, “This year, customers have been telling us they want to embrace the spirit of Christmas more than ever.

"We won’t want to confine Christmas to one day, we’ll be looking to extend the festive season and turn it into a series of moments, celebrating with loved ones in whatever way we can.

"Christmas isn’t a time our customers want to hold back, and food will continue to play a central part in their celebrations.

"Some of the festivities may look a bit different, some might even be virtual, but they will be more special than ever as we treat, thank, celebrate and unite with friends and family.”
