Halloween is fast approaching and we’ve got everything to get you ready for the scariest day of the year. From a creepy crawly infested chocolate cake through to costumes, sweets and enough pumpkins to open your own farm, our fantastic retailers have a fang-tastic range of Halloween essentials.


Get your hands dirty this Halloween with this recipe for Spooky Chocolate Mud Cake, complete with creepy crawly sweets and a devilishly delicious ‘muddy’ icing. Perfect for parties or just to scoff at home, you can find all the ingredients you need over at M&S at Mell Square.


Get ready for truly hair-raising Halloween celebrations with themed food from M&S. Sink your teeth into its spooky range of family favourites like ribs, burgers, pizza and chicken nuggets. There’s even a meatloaf shaped like a mummy! Of course, it wouldn’t be Halloween without sweet treats, and even favourites like Colin the Caterpillar and Percy Pigs have been given a scarily good revamp.


Whether you’re dressing up, planning a party or having a pumpkin carving competition, Sainsbury’s at Poplar Way has a whole host of Halloween goodies available. Perfect your costume with fake blood, scary masks and make-up. Or why not decorate your home with eyeball string lights, fake spiders and even a hanging skeleton? Don’t forget the pumpkin – Sainsbury’s has loads up for grabs from just £1, as well as all the cutting kits and pumpkin scoops needed to create a true work of art.


Saving on all things Halloween couldn’t be easier with Poundland at Mell Square. Everything is amazing value for money and you can pick up decorations, toys and sweets for less. We love its outdoor skeleton stakes – just arrange them on the lawn and get ready to give trick or treaters a fright!

However you plan to spend Halloween, head to Mell Square for everything you need to make it the best one yet!
