M&S has given its hugely popular Colin the Caterpillar cake a spooky makeover for Halloween and it’s even more chocolatey than ever. 

The retail giant’s regular Colin the Caterpillar cake has been turned into a ‘Yummy Mummy’ and it is coated in a layer of white chocolate, with its usual milk chocolate layer inside.

So it’s extra spooky, the white chocolate is wrapped around the cake like an Egyptian mummy’s bandages.

The retailer said: “Our limited-edition, double choc yummy mummy Colin the Caterpillar is here!

“He’s coated in a layer of Colin’s classic milk chocolate AND a layer of creamy white chocolate – WOW.”

The Facebook post has garnered more than 1,800 shares and over 28,000 comments, with many shoppers saying they can’t wait to add it to their baskets.

“If anyone wants to treat me to this little bit of heaven yes please,” one wrote.

Another added: “Definitely need creepy Colin the Caterpillar [in] my life.”

Tagging a friend, one commented: “This needs to be found, bought and devoured.”

“If I don’t get my hands on one of these I’ll be very upset,” someone else said.

A fifth penned: “Oh my god I’m going to get one of these for the weekend!”

M&S said: “Introducing our new Hairy Harri Halloween cakes!

“Feeding a crowd? Pick up one of our large celebration cakes, made with Madeira sponge and a raspberry jam filling, topped with vanilla buttercream and chocolate decorations. Or for a spooky snack, try the creepily cute cupcakes.”

It’s recommended that it be shaken with ice before serving.
