    Everyone is jumping on the Valentine’s Day bandwagon. And we’re grateful. There is a new Ben & Jerry’s Valentine’s Day flavour, Krispy Kreme Valentine’s Day doughnuts and even Lush Valentine’s Day bath bombs. Whether you’re loved up or flying solo, there’s something for everyone come February 14th.

    While Marks and Spencer are also focusing on the romantic day of the year – have you seen their fancy meal deal? – they’re also giving us some tasty treats for other occasions, like this gin and tonic sauce for Pancake Day.

    Now, M&S have decided to really push the boat out to provide us with new limited edition Percy Pigs.

    That’s right – if you’re a fan of the popular original you’ll be pleased to know that they’re emulating the classic with a twist to celebrate the Chinese New Year on February 5th. With 2019 being the Year of the Pig, it makes sense to give Percy a new pal.

    The Percy Phizzy Pig Tails are a slightly sour sweet made from fruit juices and are, of course, vegetarian. They’re currently selling at £3 for two packets, which sounds like an absolute bargain. 

    Katy Patino, product developer at M&S, says: ‘We couldn’t celebrate the Chinese Year of the Pig without paying homage to the nations favourite pig.

    Percy Phizzy Pig Tails have been given the ultimate Chinese New Year makeover and we are hoping that customers will get in to the spirit and celebrate with these special limited-edition packets.’

    We’re certain that these will fly off the shelves, considering that M&S confirmed they sell a staggering 300 million Percy Pigs a year.

    Brb, heading to the nearest M&S immediately.
