A Christmas Colin the Caterpillar is coming and he’s a proper festive treat

Before we go any further, yes Christmas is still 93 days away (who’s counting?) and we haven’t even put together a Halloween costume or decided where to go for fireworks night yet. However, there’s nothing wrong with getting excited for the most wonderful time of the year a little earlier than usual because, let’s face it, this year has been a bit of a shocker.

So we say grab the mulled wine, order your beauty advent calendar and stock up on Disney baubles because before you know it it’ll be 2020.

Oh, and make sure you pick up a Christmas Colin the Caterpillar because will December really be the same without one?

Yes, you read that correctly – M&S have given everyone’s favourite chocolate cake a festive makeover so forget the mince pies and Christmas pudding. It’s finally acceptable to bring a Colin out after the turkey.

Retaining the same deliciousness as always, he is covered in presents, snowflakes, holly and candy canes, and is even wearing red Santa’s hat and matching slippers. He’ll cost just £10 – an absolute bargain – and will be available from October when M&S release their full Christmas range.

The festive food drop includes 170 new dishes, including the Perfect Turkey, a completely vegan Christmas dinner and the Biggest Ever Éclair.

We are so so ready for the Christmas Colin to land in M&S stores next month.

Keep your eyes peeled if you want your own festive friend to present to your guests over the very merry season.
