Percy Pig™ Soft Gums - Marks & Spencer

Those who frequent Marks & Spencer food departments, and those who don't, are likely to be familiar with Percy Pigs. These unique, soft, pink piggy gums are one of a kind. In fact, they're something of an icon.

Their huge popularity among children and adults has led to a whole gamut of Percy Pig extras including Percy Pig and Pals, Percy Piglets, Phizzy Pig Tails, Reversy Percy and the new Veggie Percy. You can also find Percy Pig fruit flavour sorbet sticks as well as Percy Pig gift sets and keyrings. 

While they’re not exactly recommended as a healthy addition to a diet, they have only 30 calories each, so eating the odd one now and again shouldn’t pile on the pounds. With 12 Percy Pigs per bag, the entire pack has 360 calories. This is definitely one pack of sweets that’s good for sharing.

Percy Pig™ is a registered trademark of Marks and Spencer plc so you’re mainly going to find them in M&S foodhalls in the sweet section or prominently placed by the checkouts. They've also been spotted in Woolworths in South Africa and in Coles in Australia (under the guise of Peggy Pig & Pals) - see Facebook page.

If you're a fan of Percy Pig, there are umpteen Facebook pages devoted to Percy. This Percy Pig Facebook page seems to be pretty popular if you're interested.
