Marks and Spencer’s Colin The Caterpillar cake is up there with some of the brand’s most popular and beloved snacks of all time, from Percy Pig to their new giant mint chocolate buttons. Colin cakes have graced many a birthday party, and are the go-to choice for children and adults everywhere.
And now, you can pick up a special Christmassy Colin cake in honour of the festive season. Hurrah! For a limited time only, you’ll be able to get this special edition in time for your Christmas day pudding, or for Boxing Day feasts.
As for what exactly makes this new version so festive? Well, there’s the fact that Colin is wearing a Santa hat. Or that the entire cake is covered in candy canes, snowflakes, and holly. It’s essentially Christmas in a cake, all with the usual Colin deliciousness.
The even better news (if that’s even possible) is that this dessert option won’t break the bank; at £10, it’s affordable and in our opinion, worth every penny. M&S are also adamant this will serve ten people, making it a mere £1 per serving. However, considering how delicious we know the usual Colin is, we do doubt whether this would feed that many in one sitting.
If you’re already raring to go, mark 14th December in your diaries, because that’s when this one will be available to buy in store. This new addition joins a whole host of impressive Christmas food by M&S, including a clementine gin snow globe, and an incredible Christmas rainbow cake, which is covered in sprinkles.
Colin The Caterpillar has become so famous over the years, he has some seriously famous fans, from Taylor Swift to David Beckham. The bestselling cake has also been made into Connie, a female counterpart, and into mini Colins, which are great for on-the-go fun snacking.
