M&S is doing an Easter Bunny Colin the Caterpillar cake

He’s had an Easter makeover…

Published

on

M&S

Colin the Caterpillar is a Great British icon, ready to appear at any seasonal holiday or party with a brand new makeover.

His latest incarnation is an Easter bunny version, available from M&S in time for Easter – obviously.

Don’t worry, he’ll still feature the same milk chocolate-smothered sponge, but with added mini carrot decorations, egg sprinkles and an Easter Bunny face.

It was posted on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook page over the weekend, where it proved popular, racking up thousands of comments and reactions.

Some people weren’t fans of Colin’s new look, though, with Rachel Dolly saying: “Is it just me or does that rabbit look evil? Kinda crazy? I think that cake would scare children and the elderly!”

Natasha Davies added: “Jeez looks like the rabbit from Donnie Darko!!!! My daughter would freak out looking at that”.

Easter Colin will be available at M&S from March 31st, so plenty of time to grab one before Easter Sunday on April 12th.

Poor old Colin! What do you think of his new look?

Someone has invented a pillow that will stop you snoring ‘from any sleeping position’

We all know someone who needs this.

There’s a new anti-snoring pillow that will save thousands of people from sleepless nights.

If your partner is a seriously loud snorer this might be the perfect Christmas gift to yourself.

The anti-snoring pillow promises to ‘eliminate snoring, relieve muscle strain and bring a restful night’.

The makers behind the lifechanging product explain that a lot of sleeping problems such as snoring are down to ‘improper’ sleeping positions.

The Matrix Pillow is made from a two layer composite material, including memory foam for extra comfort and support.

Divided into 14 cubes that all move independently to adjust to your sleeping position as they change throughout the night. 

Split into two different materials, one memory foam to absorb pressure from the head and neck and a high rebound sponge that will provide comfort and support.

The creator explain: “Snoring commonly occurs when sleeping flat on the back with the neck inadequately supported. This condition causes the airway to narrow or close completely, causing snoring.

“With its unique triangular structure, The Matrix Pillow is designed to provide proper support and keep your airway open no matter how you change positions during sleep.

“When you turn onto your side your cervical spine goes out of alignment, leaving your head and neck without enough support, and that muscle strain accumulates all night.

“A typical pillow can’t self-adjust to your different sleep positions to provide adequate support, leaving you feeling tired and sore in the morning.”

According to the creators the pillow will extend the stage of sleep where you are in deep sleep by up to two hours, which according to the creators will ‘restore energy, enhances immunity, and recharges the body’. Sounds ideal.

The creators are currently raising funds on Indiegogo, where they have currently raised £135,642 from 1,790 backers.

A pillow that promises to stop your partner snoring? £59. A non-snoring partner and better sleep? Priceless.

Everyone knows that pigs in blankets are hands down the best part of a Christmas dinner, and there’s no arguing with it.

And while pizza is in no way a traditional part of a festive meal, they are undeniably delicious, so what better than mixing pigs in blankets AND pizza?

Well, that’s exactly what the nutters over at B&M have done, releasing a special pigs in blankets pizza in time for Christmas.

B&M and Heron Foods have launched the festive pizza, which you can grab from their shelves this week.

B&M

The limited-edition pizza includes succulent pigs in blankets, red peppers and onion chutney, on a cheesy base.

Combining everyone’s favourite flavours, the soon-to-be festive classic weighs 503g and costs just £3.

Head to your nearest B&M or Heron Foods store to get your hands on one before they sell out – you can find more info here.

It’s officially the season for Baileys over ice while you watch The Holiday, and who is mad about it?!!

Luckily, this huge Black Friday sale sees some mega deals on booze to be had. 

For a very limited time only, Asda stores nationwide will be offering an entire LITRE of Bailey’s for just £10. 

Yep, let that sink in.

The unmissable bargain will be running from this Friday, the 19th, to Sunday 22nd November and will definitely be popular so you’ll have to be quick to grab one.

A standard bottle of Baileys will set you back £12 as part of Asda’s rollback price. It normally retails for £20 so even if you miss out on the deal, you’ll still get a whopping 40% off.

If Morrison’s is your closest shop, they’ve also got litre bottles on offer for £12 until November 24th. You’re only allowed to buy one bottle at a time at Morrisons so if you buy a second you will be charged £20 for the second bottle.

Again, Sainsbury’s is doing one bottle per customer on their £12 promotion.

If you are a Tesco Clubcard holder you can also get a litre for £12, if you don’t have a Clubcard it will be £15.
