Gutter-minded individuals have suggested the sweet gift looks ever-so-slightly phallic, taking to the internet to share their opinions.
One person wrote: "Dear M&S..... Not sure my mother would appreciate these chocolates...'chocolate tulips filled with salted caramel'.
"I can't be the only one who sees something phallic with these... especially when they stand up... And filled with salted caramel..."
Another said: "Chocolate covered Tulips from M&S for Mother's Day, tulips, really, looks like something Ann Summers would produce!!!!"
A third wrote: "Good morning here is an ad for M&S 'chocolate tulips' which are obviously exactly what you want to give your mum a box of for Mother's Day."
The chocolates don't look too bad, until they're all stood up in the box, like on the image that was advertised to social media users.
LADbible has contacted Marks & Spencer for comment.
It's not the first time we've seen a rude mishap on a seasonal treat.
One man found that a chocolate Santa has a hidden penis - thanks to a solidified splodge of melted chocolate.
The 28-year-old unwrapped the hollow chocolate Santa, but when he smashed through the front he noticed an unusual penis-shaped splodge inside the bottom half of the chocolate.
He called over partner Candice, 19, and the pair giggled before taking a few pictures.
The clothing company director left the snack uneaten while he contacted Tesco to alert them of a possible bad batch.
Jason, from Blackley, Lancashire, said: "I only picked it up because it was by the till and I wanted something sweet.
"I took it home and was going to share it with my girlfriend. When I saw it I had to look again, just broke down laughing to be honest."
