From their iconic Valentines meal deal to the odd last minute bouquet of flowers, M&S always come through for us when the 14th rolls around.

And this year is no exception: for the first time ever, Marks and Spencer will be doing an LGBT+ version of everyone’s favourite caterpillar cakes, Connie and Colin.

M&S are currently offering a special “Love is in the Air” package as part of which you can pick up two chocolate caterpillars for €15. This year, instead of only being able to get a Connie and Colin set, M&S customers can now choose between Connie and Connie or Colin and Colin sets too.

Now you can create your perfect pairing to enjoy with a cuppa while cosying up and arguing over what film to watch. That’s what all couples do on Valentines Day – isn’t it?

Colin, Connie and plenty of other delicious V-Day treats are all available to pick up at M&S, right up until after work on Monday when it just dawns on you that it’s Valentines Day and you’ve got nothing planned. Few packets of Percy’s and a pair of caterpillars – you’ll be sorted.
