Percy Pigs have long been the nation's favoured sweet treat - and in the run up to festive season, the raspberry-flavoured jelly pig is getting a milk chocolate makeover as he becomes an advent calendar.
The popular gummy has become Marks & Spencer's latest confectionary item to undergo a transformation for the chocolate Christmas calendar, which costs £5 and is available to buy now.
The calendar will feature 24 chocolate Percies hidden behind its doors, with the final flap, which should only be opened on Christmas Day, concealing a delectable bag of Percy Pigs.
The festive countdown has a super sweet pink and red theme, with Percy holding a present and sporting a red Christmas hat, while mini Percies ice skate in front of him.
It's not the first time M&S have given old Percy a festive makeover - but we at Tyla must admit, we're digging it he latest incarnation.
Not the only M&S staple to undergo a Christmas makeover, the food retailer has released aChristmas Colin the Caterpillar cake as part of its festive menu for 2019.
Covered in chocolate presents, snowflakes, holly and candy canes, Colin is looking to to trot. He's even wearing a bold red Santa's hat and matching slippers - what's not to love?
Fans will be able to snap up a Christmas Colin for £10 when M&S drop the Christmas range in late October. Ideal for the office Xmas party or December birthdays we think.
Colin comes as part of the supermarket's Xmas food offering which is made up of over 170 new mouth-watering dishes.
New dishes include the 'Perfect Turkey' (which promises to banish turkey terror) and a complete vegan Christmas meal.
There's also a super-sized version of the brand's Brie en Croute (£10) which is sold all year round; the delicious cheesy starter comes with a flaky pastry crust for dipping and loading with gooey cheese.
Marks & Spencer's Percy Pig advent calendar is available in stores and online now.
