Halloween is synonymous with sweets and chocolates. Whether you want delicious treats for yourself and your family to enjoy on 31 October, or you want to make sure you’ve got plenty of goodies to give the trick or treaters who will come to your door.

But, with the cost of living crisis continuing and showing no sign of coming to an end any time soon, it’s important to get the right goods at the right price so you can enjoy the season without having to worry about the impact on the bank balance.

So, here at NationalWorld, we’ve rounded up some of the best value Halloween sweets you can buy from high street shops, supermarkets and grocery stores. We’ve got all the top bulk buy deals, cut price items, branded items and own-brand goods. The good news is that if you happen to have any left over - perhaps if you didn’t get as many trick or treaters as you anticipated - then you can save them for Christmas. It’s a win/win because no matter what you will save money.

So, let’s take a look at some of the best Halloween sweets and chocolates deals for 2023, including goods from M&S, Aldi and more.

Let’s start with some classic Halloween sweets - Swizzels sweet treats. Think love hearts, drumstick lollies and parma violets. The best deal we’ve found is £2.75 for a 600g tub at Iceland. Next, let’s move on to another must have - seasonal sharing chocolate tubs. Over at Aldi, you can pick up a 600g tub of Celebrations for £4.49 or a 600g tub of Quality Street for £3.99.

Iceland also has a fabulous 3 for £3 mix and match deal, so you can choose a variety of treats to suit different tastebuds. Things available in the deal include Fox’s mini party ring bags, Haribo wine gums, Haribo chamallows and more.
