If you’re from the type of household where nothing says ‘I love you’ quite like chocolate, you need to get down to your local Marks & Spencer food hall, stat. The high street hero has unveiled its chocolate gifting selection for Father’s Day, and it includes a giant take on a Snickers that is truly incredible – both in terms of scale and taste.
‘The Big Daddy’ Giant Chocolate Chunky Nut Bar, to give it its official title, retails for a very reasonable £5, and is an oversized version of the cubes you’ll find in the the M&S Peanut Butter Chunks treat bag. Think thick, sticky layers of peanut, gooey caramel and milk chocolate – essentially, any peanut butter lover’s dream come to life.
If that wasn’t enough sugar for your liking, there are also two football-themed gifts on the shelves: a jar of solid milk chocolate footballs, and a milk-and-white chocolate football reminiscent of a giant chocolate button, both of which will keep your giftee equally sweet.
However, while the range has been designed for Father’s Day, it’s certainly not for dads only – there’s no reason you can’t buy it to enjoy with your nearest and dearest at any socially-distanced gathering, or (our favourite option), as a decadent treat to yourself.
Another M&S Father’s Day deal you might also like to indulge in is the new 3 for £5 deal on beers and ciders, including craft, regional and M&S exclusive lines: try cans and bottles like the American pale ale, infused with a bold hit of citrus and notes of passionfruit, or the refreshing Cornish IPA, a pale gold beer with a light, full-flavoured finish. Our top pick? The Devon Farmhouse Cider with Elderflower, a crisp, bittersweet offering that screams summer with every sip.
We’ll see you in the queue at the food hall – cheers!
