David Costello, Burton’s Biscuit Company’s Head of Customer Category Management, says Burton’s wide choice of biscuits and pack formats meets a variety of Halloween eating occasions, in or out of the home.

“Halloween is now firmly established as the second biggest seasonal event in biscuits, bought by over one million households**, and enables people of all ages to have fun. Eating treats is an integral part of the Halloween occasion which is one of the many reasons why our Cadbury Halloween range performs so strongly.

“Cadbury Halloween Biscuits are vital for retailers as they attract younger shoppers, with 45% of Cadbury Biscuits being bought by under 45s**. New for this year, the trick or treat carton (see page one for more details) also satisfies the need for a Halloween-themed, individually-wrapped branded biscuit – ideal for satisfying hungry halloweeners!”

Sales of Halloween-themed biscuits exceeded £1.5 million* last year, with market-leading Burton’s accounting for 44% of all sales*.
