They are called Percymas Pies and we would like to try one right this very second, thank you very much.

Okay, here is the thing.

We love mince pies. They are synonymous with Christmas and they are great. Fresh out of the box, or heated up with custard or ice cream or what have you. They're great.

We also love Percy Pigs. We keep saying we'll just have one more, and then before we know it, the entire bag is empty.

However, never in our wildest dreams did we think someone would thing of mushing these two great things together, but that is exactly what M&S have done with the Percymas Pie.

Described as a "crisp pastry with a fruity filling, Percy-flavour sponge and pink fondant icing, topped with a Percy Pig sweet", you can buy a four-pack of the Percymas Pies for just €3 right now.

April Preston Product Development Director at M&S Food said: "We wanted to create the ultimate mince pie alternative this Christmas to give customers choice.

"And what could be more delicious than taking the much loved, iconic flavours of our Percy Pig sweets and making them into a pie… a Percymas Pie! If you like the iconic flavour of Percy and the style of a Bakewell tart then this is a must-try - instead of, or as well as, a traditional mince pie!"
