I don’t like Percy pigs, so this doesn’t bother me, but I’d imagine if you were a fan, you’d expect at least one to be a Percy pig

Did you buy this advent calendar? Were you outraged?

I have not bought one, nor would I. I have never liked the percy pigs, so it wouldn't bother me. However, I know people who do like them and it would annoy them

Yes, one would think that the Percy pig is all about the pink chewy pig faced sweets, so it’s strange they used chocolates instead

I do like a percy pig myself (not choc ones but the regular ones in a bag) and yes, I would expect a percy pig in the calendar 🐷 😀 I expect children would be upset . I guess the moral is to the read the packaging as it is a choc advent calendar not regular percys.

Lol definitely. I didn’t even think they did chocolate versions of Percy pigs, but I guess they’re considered a treat, so different from the sweets. Perhaps the makers thought it’ll be a nice surprise...

I think the chocolate is ok....most of the advent calendars are like this...the frozen one has no Elsa in or any of the other characters...just plain chocolate.

What I think if it is a percy pig calendar it should only have the chewy pigs in, not chocolate...

My daughter loves these pigs and I think some of them taste good. You can feel the real juice taste...

Also we should not forget...this is M&S and customer expect more than just cheap chocolate and they need to pay more for it, not just £1

I agree. It’s considered a more highly regarded brand, and the chocolates used doesn’t quite fit. At least the pig sweets are expected and welcomed
