All hail the Percy Pig ice cream!

20 May 2011

If the witterings of people on Twitter are to be believed, there’s only one retail story out there today, and it has sent the tweeting hordes into overdrive.

It’s from Marks & Spencer and it’s this – the Percy Pig ice cream.

Said to taste just like the wildly popular M&S sweets of the same name, they come in boxes of four and could quickly become the biggest-selling thing in Britain since Elton John’s Princess Diana single – if Twitter is any kind of gauge.

If you’re wondering about the lollies in the pic, they’re Colin The Caterpillar, but no one seems to give a flying shite about him.

    A great confectionery mystery - do Percy's friends the cow and sheep have names? (And given the noise that M&S make about the 'real fruit' in Percy Pig sweets, why do they keep so quiet about the fact that they also contain real pig?)

    Mmmmmm porky-pork ice cream. If only it was a bit like a Magnum had a hard outer shell of crakling. Apparently the cow is called Colin and the sheep is called Shagsy.

    Tried these yesterday and they taste like, and have the texture of plastic - I'll stick with a Twister.
