Ready yourself for the onslaught of trick or treaters this Halloween with these tried and tested (and only slightly terrifying) goodies…

1. Morrisons Decorate Your Own Ghost Train, £5

Chocolate ghost train (Morrisons/PA)(Morrisons/PA)

When you’re done carving pumpkins, have a go at decorating your own terrifying ghost train. There are gingerbread shapes, sweetie bones and lots of coloured icing to play with – the kids will love it.

2. Harrods Chocolate Eyeballs and Pumpkin Marshmallows, £8

Chocolate eyeballs (Harrods/PA)(Harrods/PA)

These pumpkin and ghost-shaped marshmallows are super squishy, and make an ideal little gift.

3. Konditor & Cook Zombie Spice Girls Cookies, £3.50 each (5 for £15)

Spice Girl cookies (Konditor and Cook/PA)(Konditor and Cook/PA)

Posh, Sporty, Ginger, Baby and Scary might not be overly happy to see these quirky gingerbread versions of themselves, but we like ’em. They’ve got snap and style.

4. Greggs Spooky Ring Buns, from 80p

Halloween cupcakes (Greggs/PA)(Greggs/PA)

These are trick, treat and fancy dress all in one. First, they’re buns (not cupcakes), second, they are covered in sugary fondant, and third, those spooky – but smiley – faces on the top are plastic rings.

5. HARIBO TangfasTricks, £1

TangfasTricks (Haribo/PA)(Haribo/PA)

In this limited-edition Halloween Haribo pack, your tastebuds get more than they bargained for. Instead of just your usual tangy, fizzy candies – you might end up munching on ones that are super hot or super sour – it’s a lucky dip.

6. Harrods Haunted Candy House, £7

Haunted candy house (Harrods/PA)(Harrods/PA)

Love pick ‘n’ mix? This candy house – filled to the brim with writhing sour jelly snakes and spiders – comes with its own scoop.

7. Krispy Kreme Cobweb Doughnut, £1.90

Cobweb doughnut (Krispy Kreme/PA)(Krispy Kreme/PA)

This chocolate-coated number is filled with Krispy’s delicious classic kreme, and no actual spiders.

8. Greggs Bat Biscuit, from 85p

Bat biscuit (Greggs/PA)(Greggs/PA)

These gingerbread bats luckily aren’t the bloodsucking type; they’re covered in chocolate and are great dunked in a mug of tea.

9. Tesco Mini Spooky Custard Slices (pack of 16), £2

Tesco Spooky Slices (Tesco/PA)(Tesco/PA)

For a great post-dinner pick-me-up, snack on these creamy, rich vanilla, custard and orange fondant slices. Green slime not included.

10. Harrods Pumpkin Brains, £6

Pumpkin brains (Harrods/PA)(Harrods/PA)

So, it turns out pumpkin brains look an awful lot like jelly beans, but the bag is ideal for storing the spoils of trick or treating.

11. Morrisons Gingerbread Skeleton Biscuits, 2 pack £1

Skeleton cookies (Morrisons/PA)(Morrisons/PA)

A double act of buttery biscuits, for him and her. So sweet!

12. Greggs Toffee Apple Ring Doughnut, from 75p

Toffee apple ring doughnut (Greggs/PA)(Greggs/PA)

OK, it’s Halloween, not Bonfire Night, but toffee apples should be eaten all year round we reckon, especially in soft, gooey doughnut form.

13. Soreen Chocolate and Blood Orange Mini Loaves, £1

Chocolate and blood organe (Soreen/PA)(Soreen/PA)

These lunchbox-sized malt loaves are chocolate-orange flavoured, and make a change from full-on sugared candies. They’re quite filling too.
