Percy Pig Great Egg-scape sweets are available at M&S stores now

Easter is fast approaching and Marks and Spencer has launched a brand new sweet to mark the occasion.

Percy Pig is back with an Easter twist as the retailer launches limited-edition Percy Pig Great Egg-scape sweets (150g), priced at £1.

Bags of the Percy Pig Great Egg-scape sweets will contain Easter-themed Percys plus a "new cheeky chick character".

With four flavour combos inside the packets, there is something for everyone. Percy Pig fans can tuck into red grape and apple, red grape and orange, Cola and cherry, and apple and lemon.

M&S said: "At just £1, this hoppin’ and flavour poppin’ Easter treat bag is the cheep-est in the Percy Pig sweets selection."

And fans have gone wild for the new addition to the Percy Pig family. On Instagram, one M&S shopper said: "I may have already accidentally eaten a bag of these." The retailer jokingly replied: "Can't blame you."

Another happy customer said: "I’m obsessed with you." A third Percy Pig fan added: "Definitely getting some of these." Another said: "Oh they look delicious - on my list for the next shop. Thank you Percy Pig, you are the best."

M&S revealed that this Easter treat is not just delicious and festive - it could be lucrative too. Finding an apple and lemon green chick in your pack could make you £5,000 richer.

In one Instagram post, M&S asked shoppers: "Have you tried the limited-edition Percy Pig The Great Egg-scape sweets yet?

"They’re an all-new flavour combination featuring red grape and apple, red grape and orange, cola and cherry, and of course the highly sought-after apple and lemon green chick - if you find one of these you could win up to £5,000. Terms and conditions apply, find all competition info on the @marksandspencer website."

M&S said: "This brand new tasty treat bag not only has some new egg-squisite flavour combos (which took our experts a whole year to perfect) but also features a new, never seen before, cheeky chick character for the first time ever.

"Our Percy Pig Great Egg-scape is bursting with flavour (and cuteness, literally)."

Shoppers should probably act fast though if they want to get their hands on the sweets, as limited edition means there's only a specific number of packets out there.

And this isn't the only exciting news from Marks and Spencer. The retailer will relaunch an egg-themed dessert just in time for Easter later this month.

M&S shoppers took to social media upon hearing the news but opinions have been mixed thus far. While one customer said they "need this" in their life, another questioned why anyone would want to eat a dessert that looks like an egg.

M&S was recently named best in-store supermarket by Which?, however, two other supermarkets were given "measly" ratings.

In other supermarket news, Aldi has brought back two "shopper favourite" skin care products which customers can snap up in a matter of days.
