Celebrating Halloween is proving a bit tricky this year thanks to coronavirus, and for those last-minute people who may have forgotten there's still time to get your pumpkin.

If you're stuck indoors due to the miserable weather and haven't made it to a pumpkin patch to pick up your staple orange veg then you can get it delivered to your door instead.

And if you're in an area where shopping for non-essentials is restricted then even better, because you can also order Halloween decorations, carving sets and sweets for your scary movie marathon too.

Deliveroo customers will be able to add a fright to their bite to eat this Halloween, as they can now order Halloween goodies from pumpkin carving sets, Halloween sweets and spooky accessories straight to their door in as little as 20 minutes.

Arabella Jenkins at Deliveroo said: “This Halloween is sure to look pretty different from others before, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get into the spirit at home. If you’d completely forgotten it was Halloween this weekend altogether, you’re probably not alone.

"If that’s you, Deliveroo is here to deliver Halloween to you on-demand with limited-edition Halloween categories now on the app from Co-op, Waitrose, ALDI and Morrisons. Just try not to spook our riders when you open the door!”

Get carving

If you fancy getting into the spooky spirit with some vegetable carving, both Co-op and Waitrose have pumpkin carving sets available on Deliveroo including, you guessed it, your own pumpkin with everything you need to make the squash into a work of art* (* artistic talent not included).

Top tip – use the leftover pumpkin pulp to make a tasty pumpkin soup or toast the pumpkin seeds for a nutritious healthy snack.

Trick or…treat?

Trick or treating in your neighbourhood might be off the cards this year but why not recreate the experience at home? Hide sweets around the house and race your family to find them first.

Co-op are offering a bundle full of fizzy spiders, chewy brains, Celebrations chocolates and a Halloween loot bag or bucket so you can look the part too. Aldi, Waitrose and Morrisons also have a variety of sweets on their menu to choose from chocolates to the all important Swizzels tubs.

Time to accessorise

If you’ve left your costume to the last minute (again) and can’t bring yourself to re-create yet another black cat outfit, Deliveroo is here to help.

In as little as 20 minutes you can order fancy-dress items including a John Lewis Halloween Spinning Wand from Waitrose, or an Illusions Glow in the Dark Makeup kit from Morrisons.
