Public service announcement: Father’s Day is just a week away! Whether you’re able to celebrate your dad or father figure in person or you’re spending the day apart this year, Marks and Spencer have delivered on a seriously tempting selection of food to mark the occasion. For £5 and under, you’ll want these M&S sweet treats even if you don’t do anything for Father’s Day.
Let’s take a peek at what we can find on shelves over the next week…
The product M&S shoppers are probably most excited about is the Big Daddy Bar. Back by popular demand after shoppers pleaded on Instagram that M&S make it a permanent fixture and to ‘never stop making it’, the Big Daddy Bar is basically like a giant Snickers.
It’s filled with peanut butter, roasted peanut pieces, caramel and coated in milk chocolate. We might just have to get one of these for ourselves…
Marks and Spencer shoppers can find the gold Bank of Dad chocolate bar on shelves for £5, which is made with chunky milk chocolate combined with crunchy honeycomb and sea-salted butterscotch pieces.
Does your dad wish he had a six-pack? Now he can have one!… It’s a chocolatey six-pack of Beer Whips, though. These are a twist on a traditional chocolate whip, filled with soft and fluffy marshmallows and a layer of gooey beer-flavoured caramel.
Another sweet treat up for grabs is the Choc Chip Off the Old Bloc popcorn that’s been given a Father’s Day makeover. The sweet and salty popcorn is drizzled with milk chocolate and topped with salted caramelised peanuts and salted pretzels. Yum!
We can’t forget about Colin the Caterpillar, of course. Fans were delighted to see the chocolate caterpillar cake has had a Father’s Day makeover for the very first time – introducing ‘My Hero Colin’. The cake features an edible mask and cape, and you can even cut your own mask out of the box.
Marks and Spencer has also created a range of epic hampers that can be ordered direct to your dad or father figure’s door.
M&S Father’s Day hampers
Say cheers with a selection of beers, savoury snacks and beer whip choccies packed in a lovely rustic wooden box.
Is your dad a pie lover? This is the ideal hamper for him. Inside he’ll find a pork pie, piccalilli, pork crackling and crisps. He can wash it down with a couple of bottles of blonde beer, too.
If you’re really looking to spoil someone special this Father’s Day, this epic hamper will do the trick. Dad can dive into a delicious selection of cured meat, cheese, parfait and a pork pie. It also includes Côtes du Rhône and Southwold blonde beer.
It’s not all about beer, of course. This whiskey gift includes Speyside whisky, all butter Scottish shortbread and delicious whisky truffles.
