Marks and Spencer has launched a brand new Percy Pig ice cream range for shoppers to pick up on their essential shop. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about the price of the Percy Pig ice cream and its flavours.
How much is Percy Pig ice cream?
The ice cream has the Percy Pig flavour of raspberry and grape, a ripple of fruity sauce, and the soft chewy texture of strawberry marshmallow.
The announcement means people can pick up the ice cream during their essential shop and enjoy it in the garden during the warm weather whilst on lockdown.
It’s £3 for a 453g tub and can be found in the freezer aisle of your local M&S.

Announcing the news on its Facebook page, M&S wrote: “Four words: Percy. Pig. Ice. Cream. Yep, you heard right.
“Percy-flavoured ice cream, with a ripple of fruit sauce and chewy strawberry marshmallows (£3 a tub). And yes, it’s suitable for vegetarians too.
“Find in store when you’re next shopping for your essentials.”
The supermarket has also confirmed the ice cream is gluten free after being asked by customers on Facebook.
The original post has racked up more than 4,000 reactions and 10,000 comments in just a few hours.
One Facebook user said: “Oh my word .. I love Percy Pigs this is a dream. Will definitely get this when it’s safe for me to travel to my closest M&S”
It appears the new product is drawing in those who wouldn’t usually try it, with another user saying: “I may have Diabetes Type 2 but the next time I visit my M&S store I must buy some and give it a try as it looks very tempting.”
During the coronavirus crisis, M&S has followed other supermarkets in releasing a pre-made food parcel you can get delivered to your door.
