We love Colin the Caterpillar – a birthday cake staple.

And now hes having a Christmas makeover.

M&S is releasing a version for the festive season with Colin wearing a Santa hat and covered in festive snowflakes, holly leaves and candy canes. Hes even wearing red shoes for the season.

Its still delicious chocolate inside so a great alternative to a yule log or for those who arent a fan of Christmas cake.

The cake is a little pricier than then standard Colin, which costs £7, as this one is £10, but it is Christmas after all.

Festive Colin is part of the M&S Christmas food range and the store has revealed 19 other treats that will be available in the run-up to the big day.

With 99 days and counting until Christmas Day, today M&S Food finally reveals its much-anticipated Christmas collection for 2019 – over 170 delicious new creations, designed to help you create your most stress-free Christmas yet!

The range includes the Perfect Turkey and Perfect Roast Beef to make Christmas dinner a little easier as you just pop them in the oven for a few hours.

Theres also lots of vegan Christmas products, including a full vegan Christmas dinner and no pigs in duvets – plant-based sausages wrapped in pastry.

This years collection also includes an even larger selection of gluten-free products including mince pies, Christmas pudding and a selection of party food.

For the run up to Christmas, theres a Cornish cheese advent calendar so those who prefer a creamy treat over a chocolate one can count down to 25 December.

The Brie En Croute is also a cheese-lovers dream with a brie wrapped in pastry for you to dip.

Pigs in Blankets have had a spanish makeover with specialist Spanish pancetta around chorizo sausage with a blossom honey glaze.

For dessert, theres a trifle or Christmas pudding with sticky toffee flavours and to drink, you can have a clementine gin liqueur snow globe.

And as well as everything sounding delicious, M&S is making Christmas more environmentally friendly. Theyve removed glitter from all greeting cards, wrapping paper, gift bags, calendars, crackers and flowers this Christmas, and all Christmas puddings have moved from black plastic into widely recyclable plastic bowls.

The Christmas food range will launch in stores from 25 September with more products coming in the next few weeks.
