However, it was a post on their Facebook page that caused an uproar among some fans.

Marks and Spencer shared a video which showed budding chefs how to make Percy Pig pancakes.

The post read: “On your marks… FLIP! Our first ever Percy Pig Dessert sauce is here!

“Serve it on Percy-style pancakes with our ready-made pancakes filled with fresh strawberries, Percy sweets and jazzie sprinkles.

“How will you decorate yours? #Thisisnotjust a pancake idea, this is a Percy Pig pancake idea!”

The post spark controversy and received 492 shares and a whopping 3,200 comments.

Percy Pig sweets are one of Marks and Spencer’s most popular treats but the thought of adding it to pancakes is too much for some.

One fan said: “Sorry M&S but pancakes should have sugar and lemon on nothing else.”

“What’s wrong with pancakes with sugar a lemon juice. Looks so sickly,” a second added.

A third commented: “I thought M&S we’re trying to encourage healthier eating so why a sugary sauce(presumably) and sweets. A dessert aimed at children!!!”

“Sounds revolting. I’ll stick to the natural and traditional lemon and sugar!” Another commented.

While many pancake traditionalist thought the recipe was a step too far, others were excited to try to treat.

One Facebook fan wrote: “We will have to get some for today.”

“Love it! Lemon and Sugar is sooo 2019!” another pancake fan added.

A third commented: “Yummy I think I need this for our pancake night!!”
