Colin the Caterpillar cake from M&S is a staple British celebration piece which many of us love well into adulthood.
If you’re a Colin fan then you might know that the chocolate roll recently got married to Connie the Caterpillar cake.
Never thought we’d say that sentence to be honest…
The cute cake pair also had babies together in the form of mini snack sized Colins which are great for picnics.
But, until now, shoppers have had to buy the tasty critters individually.
Well, now the romantic pair have been freed from their separate boxes and united in one box known as the “Love Cocoon”.
Cute, we think.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day Connie and Colin are available as one buy, but they’re not just two cakes in a box.
Both caterpillars have been halves in length and moulded together so that they form one loved up, regular sized cake.
You can buy the Love Cocoon for £10, which is a little more expensive than a regular Colin, but means that two people can get a slice with a solid chocolate face on.
Plus there are little pink hearts all around the cake to add to the romance.
Marks & Spencer have said that the cake couple is “perfect for fans to enjoy in the afternoon with a glass of fizz, as a delightful dessert or in front of a romantic film in bed.”
Just watch out for crumbs…
If there’s more than two of you involved then add a pack of chocolate Colin heads to your basket to avoid fights over who gets the decadent head-slice.
Another weird sentence, we know.
According to an M&S press release, Colin had much to say about this new launch, commenting: “Connie and I live for birthday parties but we have a feeling we’re going to LOVE Valentine’s Day even more!
“We’re SO excited to celebrate with our fans in their own ‘lockdown love cocoons’ across the UK!”
Also for Valentine’s Day, M&S have launched the Love Is In The Air Colin & Connie Gift Bag for £30.
This includes the Love Cocoon cakes, plus Colin sweets, mini Colin faces, mini Colin cakes and a gift bag, which you can get delivered to your door.
