ASDA launches spooktacular pumpkin crumpets just in time for Halloween

Move aside Halloween candy, there’s a new treat we can’t wait to try, and it’s of the savoury, toasted variety.

ASDA have launched a brand new range of crumpets that look like pumpkins just in time for Halloween, so you can start the day with a friendly (and tasty) breakfast scare.

Despite the carved pumpkin-inspired design smiling out at you from the packet, these autumnal bakes don’t actually taste of pumpkin. Instead you can expect the classic doughy crumpet – just with a Halloween-themed twist!

Sold in packs of six for just £1, the fun, seasonal offering can be topped with butter, jams, preserves or an array of spreads.

ASDA are no stranger to creating unusual crumpets for their customers to enjoy. The big supermarket brand also launched popular ranges of heart-shaped crumpets for Valentine’s day and a bunny-shaped variety in the build-up to Easter.

After the positive response previous varieties of themed-crumpets received, it seems that shoppers are equally as excited for ASDA’s latest Halloween-ready offering.

‘Amazing! These are on my next shopping list!’ commented one excited customer online, with another writing: ‘this is what my October mornings are going to consist of!’

The excitement surrounding the pumpkin crumpets has even spread worldwide, with fans as far away as Australia calling for the crumpets to be sent Down Under.

‘Please bring these to Australia!!! My son would eat them every freaking day, Halloween or not!’ one fan exclaimed.

Although they might not be available to buy worldwide, residents in the UK can pick up a pack of six crumpets from their local ASDA from today.

Commenting of the release of their new pumpkin crumpets ASDA said: ‘A family favourite, these crumpets shaped like a pumpkin are a spooky treat. Perfect with butter and your favourite spread, they’re a great snack to keep hungry rumbling tummies at bay anytime of the day.’
