M&S cake jars are back with a new Percy Pig flavor, dividing customers.
In April, MARKS AND SPENCER introduced three new cake jar flavors. The shop has now launched a Percy Pig-flavored jar in response to client requests, however the reaction has been mixed.
Colin the Caterpillar, trillionaire’s flavor, and raspberry ripple are among the new flavors available in the single-serving cake jars. A Percy Pig cake jar, filled with M&S’ most famous sweet, is the newest addition to the range.
The rich chocolate sponge, Belgian chocolate sauce, chocolate ganache, milk and white chocolate chips, and a Colin the Caterpillar white chocolate face make up the Colin the Caterpillar cake jar.
Layers of sponge cake, sweet raspberry jam, creamy vanilla buttercream, and freeze-dried raspberry chunks make up M&S’ Raspberry Ripple cake jar.
The trillionaire’s cake jars were also a hit when they were first released in April.
Madeira sponge cake with salted caramel sauce, chocolate ganache, milk chocolate shortcake balls, and fudge bits make up this dessert.
“These cake jars are extremely delicious and perfect for picnics, lunches on the go – or pretty much whenever you need a sweet fix,” Natalie Tate, Lead Product Developer for M&S cakes, said at the time.
“The days of picking a cake to fit everyone’s tastes are long gone; now you can mix and match to suit everyone.
“Like jumping directly into an amazing ice cream tub, there’s something about diving in with a spoon that makes the experience even more delicious.”
On social media, the newest addition to the line has sparked a stir.
Layers of madeira sponge, Percy Pig buttercream, raspberry jam, and luscious raspberry jelly pieces fill the Percy Pig Cake Jar.
Customers may pick up the cake jars from the cake aisle, which are finished with a Percy Pig sweet and freeze-dried raspberry pieces.
Customers, on the other hand, have been divided over the cake jars since their inception due to their high price.
The £4 jars are touted to be reusable and 100% recyclable, but one client was “annoyed” by the price.
“Super irritated that M&S can just produce these rip off cake jars and sell them like they’re an incredible invention,” they commented on Twitter.
“I know it says it’s recyclable,” another said, “but let’s be honest, if you’re going on a picnic, it’ll go straight in the bin.”
