The best bit of the famous Colin the Caterpillar cake is now available to buy on its own.
It’s good news for the Colin the Caterpillar fans – you can now buy the iconic white chocolate face for just £1.
The solid, creamy white chocolate with milk chocolate eyes is a wonderful treat, especially when it’s your birthday and you get that heavenly slice of the cake.
Speaking on the matter, the actual Colin said: “Since I got so much attention for Colin Mini Faces my head’s got a little bigger, literally!”
He added: “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!”
After the success of the mini faces launched last August to celebrate the 30th birthday of Colin, fans will definitely be excited.
M&S tweeted: “STOP SCROLLING. You’ve dreamt of it, we did it. Gone are the days of fighting for Colin’s face: you can now get your very own GIANT one in store now!”
One person replied ‘dreams do come true’ while another said: “My 2 Grandsons will be so happy, we usually have to cut Colin’s face in half for them to share.”
If you want to go all out you can grab M&S’ ‘Colin the Caterpillar Cake Gift Bag’ which features the classic cake as well as mini versions. Plus there are Rainbow Colin the Caterpillars, Veggie Colin the Caterpillar and fruit sours.
The gift bag will set you back £25 with delivery available from February 2nd.
Or if the only gift that makes sense for your other half this Valentine’s, there’s the new ‘Love Is In The Air Colin & Connie‘ gift bag where you get the ‘love cocoon Colin & Connie’ plus plenty of other treats for £30.

Greggs is launching a vegan sausage, bean and cheese melt
Who fancies trying one of these?
Greggs has announced it’s adding yet another vegan alternative to its ever-expanding plant-based menu.
This time the popular bakery chain is veganising what in my humble opinion is the greatest pasty of all time – the sausage, bean and cheese melt.
Greggs confirmed the news on special media today, announcing that the vegan option would be hitting heated shelves next month.
The company wrote on Twitter: “The Vegan Sausage, Bean, and CheeZe Melt is coming. WARNING, it’s a bit of a mouthful.”
The accompanying video read: “First we gave you the vegan sausage roll. Then the vegan steak bake. And now, another legend has been veganed”.
Greggs say the new vegan alternative is fulfilling and tasty, with the same ‘sausagey’ and ‘beany’ flavours as the OG, meat-filled option.
It’s made using plant-based ingredients instead of meat, and cheeze – a dairy substitute which is flavoured like cheddar and mozzarella.
Hannah Squirrell, Greggs’ customer director, said: “The latest addition to our menu gives customers another vegan friendly alternative to one of our most iconic menu items.
“As we expand our vegan options with the launch of our new Vegan Sausage, Bean and CheeZe Melt, we mark another milestone as we continue with our journey to become our customers’ favourite destination for food-on-the-go.”
The new offering is hitting stores on August 5th and will set you back £1.60.
