Marks & Spencers launch new Vegetarian Percy Pigs
Great news! - Marks and Spencer have launched a new vegetarian version of their popular Percy Pig sweets.
As a vegetarian, this is music to my ears. I often visit petrol stations with an M &S and am badgered by the kids for Percy Pigs but don't tend to buy them for them as they are not vegetarian.
It's brilliant to hear that retailers are finally listening to a whole generation of vegetarians who love sweets but would not eat sweets containing gelatine or animal products. I can now add Percy Pigs to my Veggie sweet buying list!
The news on Twitter has gone down a storm with lots of people already hailing the sweets a success. Maybe the food industry is finally starting to take note that not every food product needs to contain meat or meat products!
