Halloween Treats for Chocolate Lovers
Halloween is the one holiday that gives us an excuse to eat our body weight in confectionery and not feel bad about it. There are so many delicious treats, including limited edition candy from the UK's most popular brands.
But what if you - or a loved one - aren't fans of candy and would rather indulge in chocolate? Are there great chocolate options for Halloween? Yes.
In this post, we'll reveal them. So, sit back, relax and get ready to discover some perfect creamy chocolate treats for the spookiest day of the year.
Why Do Some People Prefer Chocolate To Sweets?
There can be a few reasons why someone might prefer chocolate to sweets. Maybe they find the sickly sweet taste of some confectionery too much. Or, perhaps dietary restrictions rule out certain ingredients found in many Halloween sweets (such as gelatine).
But for the most part, it seems that people who prefer chocolate simply enjoy its rich and creamy taste more than the sugary sweetness of candy.
And we can't say we blame them! Chocolate is delicious. But it's also packed with feel-good chemicals that can boost our mood and make us happier. So, if you're looking for a treat that will satisfy your stomach and soul this Halloween, chocolate is definitely the way to go.
If you haven't already guessed by the name, Moo Free is a vegan company that offers delicious chocolate in the UK. The creators challenge the idea that chocolate can only be good if it's full of milk, and they certainly put up a good argument.
They're releasing Spooky Chums bars for Halloween, which will offer a scary surprise, and the Fizzy Boo bar has white chocolate and popping candy. We can't wait to taste this one and see the surprise.
Pink and White Mice
Pink and white mice are one of those classic pick and mix staples that have been around for decades. They're one of the more unique chocolate treats, and while some people find them too sweet, others can't get enough of them.
As a rodent-themed treat, they might be just what you're looking for this Halloween, and they're one of the more cost-effective chocolates out there.
Gwynedd Creepy Pumpkins
As part of our collection of Halloween sweets, we're offering some delicious chocolate pumpkins this year. These are a must for anyone looking for alcohol-free chocolate treats this Halloween and are suitable for people of all ages.
They're made with milk chocolate and have a lovely orange hue, which makes them look just like pumpkins.
Creepy pumpkins come in a set of ten per pack, so there's plenty to share (or not), and they make great alternatives to sweets.
Chocolate skulls are popular for Halloween, and we've got some great ones in our range. These are made with white chocolate and have a smooth, creamy texture that melts in your mouth.
Skulls are ideal if you're looking for something a little bit different to the traditional sweet, and they make great gifts for people who prefer chocolate over candy.
Cadbury Heroes are a seasonal staple, and their endless appeal endures throughout the year. These delicious little chocolates never disappoint if you're not interested in indulging in Halloween-themed confectionery.
The selection of flavours includes Dairy Milk, Dairy Milk Caramel, Fudge, Twirl, Eclaire, Dinky Decker, Creme Egg Twisted and Crunchie bars.
Be sure to get a big box, though, because Heroes always go quickly.
Quality Street is another seasonal favourite, and their selection of chocolates and sweets always hits the spot. The whole family loves Quality Street, and the eternally popular flavours never fail to delight people.
You'll find classics like Toffee Penny, Fudge and Orange Crème in the mix, along with the infamous purple and green chocolates. The purple is the undisputed favourite from Quality Street, featuring milk chocolate, caramel and hazelnut, while the green triangle has an indulgent praline centre.
Chocolate Covered Nuts & Fruit
Chocolate-covered nuts and fruit are a great way to get your chocolate fix this Halloween, and they make a healthy alternative to sweets.
We've got a great selection of chocolate-covered almonds, Brazils, cashews, cranberries, hazelnuts and raisins that are perfect for sharing (or not).
Our chocolate-covered sea salt caramel fudge peel is also very popular if you're looking for something a little bit different.
Lindt Ultimate Collection

The box includes Smarties, KitKat, Milkybar and Jelly Tots, so it's bound to be a hit.
Who doesn't love chocolate jazzies? As one of the top pick and mix sellers, they never fail to create nostalgic memories, and everyone loves them. Whether it's the milk chocolate or white chocolate discs, the sprinkles on top make jazzies truly special.
