No birthday celebration is complete without an M&S Colin the Caterpillar cake, and if the birthday in question is yours, it means you get first dibs on the best bit – that chunky white chocolate face.
TBH, sometimes we’d happily forgo the actual cake for Colin’s cheeky visage, a sentiment clearly shared by the genius team at Marks & Spencer, who have just announced that, as of tomorrow (Tuesday 26th Jan), you can buy individual cake-sized Colin faces for just £1. Oh sweet Jesus.
The inspired snack comes after the roaring success of the mini Colin faces launched in celebration of the caterpillar’s 30th birthday last year (yes, that makes us feel old too). In a press release, Colin “himself” said: “Since I got so much attention for Colin Mini Faces my head’s got a little bigger, literally! I’ve had a whole lot of love from my fans in lockdown and I’m so pleased that they can now enjoy Face Time with me all year round! Stay tuned for more news about me (and the Mrs!) next week!”
We can’t even imagine what they’ll think of next, but with food legit the only thing to get excited about during lockdown, we’re here for it.
Giant Colin Face £1, 40g – available in M&S Stores from 26 January.
