“Percy Pig is loved by so many, so when we develop a new Percy product, we have to ensure every element of the flavour and texture is synonymous with what our loyal fans expect.”
The Percy Pig ice cream follows the release of the M&S’ Percy Pig sauce which was released in February.
You can pick up a tub of the ice cream on your next essentials shop and make sure to comply with the government guidelines and practise social distancing while doing so.
M&S have also launched other products during the coronavirus lockdown.
Following on from Morrisons, M&S launched an essentials food box that is delivered straight to your door.
It is £35 and includes everyday essentials such as toilet roll, tinned food and pasta.
The box also contains Percy Pigs, salted peanuts and chocolate buttons.
Customers can order this box from the Marks and Spencer website.
