M&S Has Just Launched A Pink Percy Pig Dessert Sauce
We've had Percy Pigs, Percy Pig and Pals, Veggie Percy, and even dinky little Percy Piglets.
But now everyone's favourite squishy pink sweet is going in a new direction and being turned into a dessert sauce.
That's right, Percy is getting saucy, and you can drizzle a little Percy Pig sweetness over your favourite dessert.
...There goes our plan of a virtuously healthy start to the New Year, then.
Available in a cute bottle, the bright pink squirty sauce is described as "dessert curd sauce with apple juice" and costs a wallet-friendly £2.
The good news is, the taste is spot-on - the folks at M&S have genuinely captured the signature sweet-sharp tang of their oink-tastic sweets in sauce form.

We suggest drizzling the sweet fruity sauce (trust us, a little goes a long way) over filled pancakes. We'll be stocking a bottle in the cupboard ahead of Shrove Tuesday.
The sweet Percy sauce is also great with ice cream, cookie dough or warm chocolate cake.
One Instagram reviewer wrote: "I don't know how they managed it but it really does taste of Percy Pig! It's a very sweet, almost tangy sauce with the unmistakable Percy Pig flavour. A bit sickly if you have too much maybe but it's certainly a fun topping for ice cream and desserts!"
The product is suitable for veggies too - no piggies were harmed in the making of this sauce.
Given Percy's shape-shifting potential, the dessert sauce comes as no surprise. So loved are the sweets that pink Percy muffins landed in M&S' bakery section last November, filled with raspberry jam and buttercream, and topped with a single snouty sweet.
Where will Percy go next?
