Traditional Christmas cake is divisive at the best of times, but now there’s a festive offering set to please everyone’s palate.

Behold Mini Christmas Colins, tiny bite-sized versions of the Marks & Spencer favourite Colin The Caterpillar.

The mini rolls are presumably the offspring of Colin and Connie The Caterpillar, the fruitier female version, of the popular product.

The baby Colins have the same white chocolate face we all know and love, topped with an adorable little red Santa hat.

They are also decorated with holly leaf decorations in red and green. Festive indeed.

Colin The Caterpillar Facts:

  • Colin celebrated his 25th birthday two years ago which would make him 27 this month
  • It takes 88 people to make Colin from start to finish
  • Every year M&S use 8.4 tonnes of sweets to decorate Colin

The Christmas Colins will hit the shelves at the end of October and cost just £2, which is cheaper than the full-sized version.

In the meantime you can feed your sweet tooth with a Halloween-inspired Colin The Caterpillar with Count Colin, which is released at the beginning of October.
