ASDA's 'Spooktacular' Halloween range

ASDA recently sent us through a voucher to go and discover their extensive new Halloween range instore. The only problem was deciding what we wanted to buy because there are absolutely loads of things that caught our eye ! I must admit, my initial thought was that £15 wouldn't go far. How wrong was I ! Here's our selection :

You can't have Halloween without a grinning pumpkin Jack o' lantern. You can get a carving pumpkin for £2 (or two for £3). If you want to eat pumpkin pie or pumpkin soup, you can also get smaller edible pumpkins for 87p.

Staying on the theme of Halloween food, Juliette has been begging to have another go at making toffee apples during the holidays. As our last attempt at making homemade toffee apples was less than conclusive (albeit great fun), I was over the moon to see that they are selling chocolate apples or toffee apples for £1 for 2. I know where to go if we have another disaster in the kitchen !

Not as healthy but definitely an indispensable part of Halloween - some Halloween sweets for the trick or treaters. You can pick up a whole big tin of chocolates (750-850g depending on the brand - Celebrations, Roses, Quality Street, Cadbury Heroes) for a bargaintastic £5. At that price, I'd almost be tempted to get two to make sure that there would be some left over for us after the trick or treaters have been !

The kids excitedly spotted these Halloween confectionery items too - Screme Eggs and the fabulously evil looking Cadbury Spiders, which are milk chocolate with green crisped rice balls. They're only 50p each so how could I say no?!

These popping candy-laced Exploding Eyeballs will make you - er, I mean the kids ! - squeal in a mixture of disgust and delight and are well worth £1 too.

These plastic pumpkin pails are perfect for stashing all the Halloween booty and at 50p each, you can't go far wrong.

Off to the bakery aisle now because the kids had spotted this horribly grisly Mummy cake for £5 !

Cheeky Juliette said that Monster High are Halloween-themed and could she please please please have this Monster High DVD because it only costs £5 ! They also have Hotel Transylvania and a Monster High double feature DVD for the same price.

They also have fancy dress costumes (for adults and kids), decorations and all manner of ghoulish things to get your house ready for Halloween ! 

Disclosure : We received a voucher in order to check out ASDA's Halloween range.
