Stock up on sweet treats by taking advantage of the best Halloween deals


HALLOWEEN is here – so what better excuse for sinking your gnashers into a big, fat, sticky toffee apple?

Trick-or-treat may be a no-no in many parts, thanks to the pandemic, but people are bringing the party home — with sales of sweet snacks up 392 per cent on last year.

Get your hands on sweet treats like sticky toffee apples while prices are slashed

From party cupcakes and confectionery, to ghost-shaped crumpets and those apples, let the fun begin.

Here’s a few ideas that are not scarily costly . . . 

Core blimey: You cannot be without a toffee apple of two on fright night.

You can bag a Parrs one for 75p at Tesco — and they even have ones coated in chocolate if you are not a toffee lover. But head to Asda and you can get a toffee apple for 49p, down from 60p.

Ghostbusters: Start the day as you mean to go on, with ghost-shaped crumpets. You can pick up six for just £1 at Asda. Or grab a pack of six pumpkin-spice bagels, also only £1 at Asda.

Share the good: You can currently get a 22-pack of Haribo Starmix Mini Bags at Sainsbury’s for £2, down from £2.50 — and they are just the thing for a treasure hunt or as prizes for those who are lucky enough to win the frightful family games.

For a bigger sharing tub, a Swizzels at Iceland is on offer for £4, down from £5.

Rotten rascals: For an extremely gross but funny game, check out the Jelly Belly Bean Boozled Jelly Beans, on offer for £1.80 down from £2.10 at Sainsbury’s.

Will you dare to try them? You could end up with a rotten-egg or, er, baby-wipe flavour. Urgh!

Creepy cakes: For the best-looking Halloween cupcakes I have clapped eyes on, you should head to Greggs the baker, where a four-pack is £2.75.

But for flat-out value you’ll have to go a long way to beat Asda’s Halloween offering of a 12-pack for £1.50
