However, if you want to get your Percy fix with even less effort, you could also invest in a tub of the recently-launched Percy Pig ice cream, which has all of that signature raspberry and grape Percy Pig flavour in frozen form.

Considering that the temperatures are set to rise even higher, we’ll be keeping a stash in the freezer from hereon out.
