High street favourite Wilko has a treat up its sleeve for this half term AND Halloween – the half price pick and mix.
Since Woolworths closed its doors – and famous pick and mix scoops – in 2009, they left a gaping pick and mix hole in our hearts, one that Wilko have filled with ease.
The latest sweetie bonanza of half price pick and mix promo kicks off on October 27th – which has been confirmed on the company’s Twitter page.
A customer, posting as Lady C Aston-Wood tweeted the brand to ask: ‘Is it half price Pick n Mix time? Oink oink.’
And Wilko staffer Becca replied: ‘Our half price Pick n’ Mix will be back in stores on the 27th October.’
The sweet news spread like wild fire: ‘Went to get sandpaper in Wilko and they had half price pick and mix (didn’t get big size because self restraint)’, while another posted: ‘Wilkos pic n mix is on offer again YESSSSSSSS’.
Of course parents everywhere were happy the treat was coming back so they can surprise their children, especially if it’s their birthday: ‘Half price Pic n Mix @LoveWilko on 27/10 I do believe?? Well I suspect that will make my daughter’s 14th birthday even better for her!’
Another sweet-lover wrote: ‘I hear rumours of half price pic n’ mix at Wilko’s this Friday. Ooh hello…I may have to swing by after my two wireless shows! Mmmm sweets.’

‘I live for half price pick and mix from wilko!’, said another, while this Twitter user has already planned a visit to the store: ‘Wilko pick and mix is half price again, that’s me sorted after work’.
Although we were unable to confirm the length of time the promo will run, the half price deal is a regular Wilko deal and usually lasts the whole weekend.
