While most supermarkets just offer shoppers a range of scary sweets, Morrisons' customers can choose from 20 frightening new foods, such as "goblin toe" grapes, extra mouldy cheese, and a ghost pumpkin with translucent white skin.
Anyone looking to rustle up a terrifying feast for the holiday can head to the supermarket's fresh counters, where some very unusual – and challenging – new foods are on sale.
The "Horror-sons" range which is on sale at all stores now until Sunday includes a "Were Wolffish" – an Atlantic catfish with sharp fangs that can grow up to 5ft long.
A fillet will cost you £2.50 – about the same price as a fillet of haddock or a cod loin.
Also available on the fish counter is a Spiny Red Crab, a variety which has alarmingly long spiny legs. It costs £4 per kilogram.

Here's how to cut the cost of your grocery shop
- Write yourself a list – Only buy items that you need. If it isn’t on your list, don’t put it in the trolley
- Create a budget – Work out a weekly budget for your food shopping
- Never shop hungry – you are far more likely to buy more food if your tummy is rumbling
- Don’t buy pre-chopped veggies or fruit – The extra they’ll charge for chopping can be eye watering
- Use social media – follow your favourite retailers to find out about the latest deals
- Be disloyal – You may want to go to different stores to find the best bargains
- Check the small print – It’s always worth checking the price per kg/lb/litre when comparing offers so you’re making a like for like decision as a bigger box won’t necessarily mean you get more
- Use your loyalty cards – Don’t be afraid to sign up to them all. They all work slightly differently – work out what bonus suits you better and remember to trade in your points for additional rewards
A Morrisons spokesman said the supermarket's fishmongers, butchers and greengrocers will suggest recipe ideas to help shoppers know what to do in the kitchen with these wacky ingredients.
Jayne Wall, head of Morrisons Market Street said: “Nature is weird and wonderful – and some of the most delicious fish, meat and fruit and veg can look quite spooky.
"We’ve hunted out some of the spookiest foods for our fish, butchers, and greengrocers.
"We hope that parents and children enjoy cooking and trying something new this Halloween."
There are plenty of other spooky treats on sale at supermarkets for Halloween.
Morrisons is also selling a ghoulish-looking pizza topped with two of the world's hottest chillies.
Asda is also selling a devilish pizza with a black bbq "slime" sauce that's topped with spooky cheese ghosts.
Meanwhile Asda has a unicorn witch cake for the spooky holiday this year, and it's more adorable than scary.
