October might feel too early to be thinking about Christmas, but it seems people are keen to make up for last year’s last-minute Christmas restrictions. In fact, M&S reported there were 500,000 searches for ‘Christmas’ on its website at the beginning of September and it had already sold 1,000 frozen turkeys!
It looks like M&S is trying to make Christmas 2021 one of the best yet, with the introduction of the brand’s first ever Colin the Caterpillar advent calendar. But what of Colin’s animal pal, Percy Pig?
As M&S reveals more and more of its Percy Pig Christmas range, we can’t help but be excited. For mega Percy lovers, the Ultimate Hamper is sure to be their favourite Christmas gift. Inside a hand-woven wicker hamper, you’ll find Percy Pig pennies, chocolate ‘snoses’, chocolate popcorn, a biscuit tin, sweets, a melting hot chocolate bomb, and a plush toy.
Another item that caught our attention was the Percy Pig wreath. Perfect for hanging on your kitchen door in the run-up to Christmas, dangling from the wreath you’ll get: packets of the original Percy Pigs, Party Percys, Phizzy Pig Tails, Percy Pig and Pals, Percy Piglets and a plush toy. Plus, there are Percy clips so you can add a personal touch with your own photos.
Although Marks and Spencer haven’t made the announcement themselves yet, foodie Instagram account NewfoodsUK revealed the store will be launching a Percy ‘Pigloo’ cake next month.
They described the cake as ‘a light and fluffy sponge cake filled with a Percy Pig flavoured buttercream and fruity jam, with an edible smash dome and hidden Percy Pig surprises!’
We can’t wait to break into this treat! Without further ado, this is everything on offer in the Percy Pig Christmas range this year…
