If you’re looking to stock up the fridge for the Bank Holiday, then FYI, Marks and Spencer has knocked it out the park with its Easter range this year.

Alongside a whole bunch of Easter eggs (and some egg hunt kits featuring much loved characters, Colin the Caterpillar and Percy Pig), the supermarket has also brought out a savoury offering, for those of us with less of a sweet tooth.

Introducing M&S’ Breaded Chicken Bunnies.

We mean look at them. Aren’t they cute?!

The rabbit shaped ‘nugs dropped in store over the weekend, on 9th April, and are essentially: “breaded chicken pieces, shaped as adorable Easter Bunnies”.

You can grab yourself a pack for £4 in stores, but they’re only available on a limited run, so if you wanna stock up we’d suggest doing so now, as it appears they’re amassing quite the fan club online…

The bunnies first reared their little heads on Insta account, @NewFoodsUK, and it’s safe to say that they’ve garnered some excitement since.

“MUST COP !!!!!!!!!,” said one user, who was clearly enthused about the new product drop.

Whilst another insisted: “Not just the little ones! Perfect for the big ones too!”

“This is happening…” wrote a third, tagging a friend in the comments.

Yes, yes it is.

The hype isn’t surprising, really, seeing as we’re all kids at heart – and let’s face it, everyone loves a ‘nug. But they’re not the only product we’re excited about.

The nuggets come alongside a whole range of Easter goods from M&S, including ‘Egg-Clairs’ (£6), dubbed “choux pastry delights which have been hand filled with rich whipped cream and zingy passionfruit crème patissiere and topped with white chocolate fondant”.

Back on the savoury aisle, they’re also selling Extra Mature Cheddar Hot Cross Buns, for £1.75, which are “loaded with Extra Mature Barber’s Farmhouse Cheddar & smooth Red Leicester”.

And you can cop yourself some Marmite Hot Crossed Buns, (£1.75), flavoured with cheese and best served with a generous slathering of butter, too.

Who said choccy eggs were the only way to celebrate?
