Colin The Caterpillar becomes Frankencolin in Halloween-themed makeover

Colin The Caterpillar is no stranger to changing up his looks to fit the occassion.

From a top hat on his wedding day to smothering himself in candy canes and presents for Christmas, everyone’s favourite cake for birthdays and office parties likes to mix it up.

So of course dear Colin will go big for Halloween. Any excuse to dress up, right?

While in previous years Colin opted for a vampire costume, in 2020 he’s gone for the classic tale of Frankenstein’s monster.

This year, M&S’s Halloween edition of Colin The Caterpillar has a green chocolate face and feet and is decorated with chocolate nuts and bolts, all to create a very spooky look. His chocolate eyes look quite angry, too.

Along with Halloween Colin, Marks & Spencer is also selling mini editions of Frankencolin – the same concept, but smaller.

If you fancy getting a full Halloween Frankencolin, it’ll cost you £10, while a five-pack of mini Frankencolins is £2.25. These will be in stores from 14 October, so don’t go rushing to your local M&S just yet.

If you’re planning to go really big on the Halloween-themed food, rejoice, for M&S is also bringing out a load of other bits.

They’re now doing Yummy Mummy Yumnuts, which are Yumnuts with white fondant bandages and sweet eyes, a pumpkin shaped Bloomer, plus plenty of big tubs of Halloween sweets

There’s the rather spectacular centrepiece of the Petrifying Popping Candy Brain, which is made up of apple-flavoured jelly in a brain shape, with a raspberry drizzle and popping candy sprinkle – which M&S says will continue to pop for over an hour. This also happens to be vegan.

On the savoury side of affairs M&S has special Halloween burgers filled with pockets of molten cheese, Mummy Meatloaf, Toffee Apple Bangers, Eerie Eyeball Margarita Pizza, and Plant Kitchen Ghouliflower Popcorn (another vegan one, this time battered and spiced cauliflower with a smokey BBQ sauce).

There’s a three for £10 Squeal Deal across Halloween meals and desserts, so you can have a proper feast.

Then, of course, there are pumpkins – a medium one is just 65p.

We haven’t seen loads of exciting Halloween ranges so far this year – perhaps because Covid-19 has put quite the dampener on trick or treating plans – but Morrisons has got on the spooky season hype with dedicated Halloween and Bonfire Night boxes you can get delivered to your door.
