Whether you’re hosting a spooky soirée, Halloween party for the kids or a horror film night with friends snacks are essential. One of my favourite things about the Halloween season is all of the novelty snacks floating around; for today’s Blogtober I thought I’d share some (to suit a range of budgets) with you to inspire your next night in.

M&S Vampire Fangs Crisps

My favourite spooky snack this year is the cheesy vampire fangs from M&S. Shaped like a set of fangs and full of flavour these are really moreish and hard to put back down.

M&S Percy Pig Sweets

Also from M&S are the Percy Pig gets spooky Halloween edition sweets. If you work in an office or have kids (or both!) You’ll know that Percy Pigs are highly-addictive. These are no exception and the cute pumpkin-esque design makes them just that little bit sweeter.

M&S Chocolate Covered Severed Fingers

Giving new meaning to a chocolate finger with a cup of tea is this set of five ‘severed fingers’ from M&S. In my opinion, M&S truly win at the novelty food stakes. I’m not the biggest chocolate fan but these are delicious and will be well received when served alongside a hot drink.

Mr Kipling Terrifying Toffee Whirls

Anything Mr Kipling will get my seal of approval and the terrifying toffee whirls are no exception. You can pick these up in any supermarket for around the £1 mark. A relatively inexpensive treat that will sure to please at teatime.

Flying Tiger Milk Chocolate Pumpkins

Not only is Flying Tiger great for picking up Halloween decorations but it also has a fun snack section too. These very reasonably priced milk chocolate pumpkins would be ideal for handing out to Trick or Treaters.

Flying Tiger Peppermint & Liquorice Flavour Lollipops

Also from Flying Tiger are these suitably spooky orange and black lollipops, decorated with spider and web designs. Again these would be great for handing out to Trick or Treaters or popping in to party bags.

Pound Shop Spooky Jaffa Fingers

Almost every town and city has a pound shop – and for good reason. Who doesn’t want to buy a bunch of plastic crap / cheap snacks and stationery?  I thought I’d give some of the Halloween range a go. The Spooky Jaffa Fingers are decorated with Halloween-themed Minions making them perfect for young children. These definitely aren’t the best snack I’ve ever tried but if you’re working with a budget they’re not bad.

Seriously scary

Addams Family Choc Covered Marshmallows

Also part of my pound shop venture are these chocolate covered marshmallows. Featuring The Addams Family on the packaging I initially thought these would make a fun snack for young children. That said however, each individual marshmallow is wrapped in plain blue packaging (taking away the novelty aspect) and the taste is extremely poor. Not to be too negative but this snack was seriously scary for all the wrong reasons!

  1. Who doesn’t like a novelty treat so this is a winner for me. I have got my eyes on the choclate fingers yummy!

  2. I loved this post! The M&S Halloween snacks are so good this year, I’m obsessed with those vampire fang crisps. Haven’t tried the chocolate severed fingers but they did have fizzy bat wing sweets which were also really good. 😊 The chocolate pumpkins and Addams family marshmallows would be great for trick or treaters! I’m super hungry now. 😂
