McDonalds' is set to give customers a real treat this Halloween by launching seven new menu items with three different desserts all containing a flavour we didn't know we needed until now (and it's not pumpkin spice)

Trick o' Treat season is just around the corner and while you might be looking for some of the best Halloween Trick or Treat recipes to make at home or the best Halloween food ideas for a party, you can reward yourself for going all out by stopping at McDonalds to try one of its new tasty treats - if you dare.

While the menu itself is not frightening, you might see your cash suddenly disappear as you won't be able to resist trying them all.

McDonalds is launching its new Halloween menu with seven new foods to choose from including a spin on traditional treacle toffee with its toffee apple flavours that its come up with not one but THREE variations - with the TWIX Toffee Apple Mcflurry, Toffee Apple Pie and Toffee Apple Donut - it would be rude to not try them all.

The menu, which is due to launch on 18th October, was teased by Instagram account, New Food Finds UK, who it's told its followers, "New McDonald's UK Menu Coming 18th October! Featuring M&M's Halloween McFlurry & TWIX Toffee Apple McFlurry!" followed by a mind-blown emoji.

One fan wrote, "Yay New McFlurrys finally!!"

Another fan put, "If this is legit, it sounds banging!"

While a third fan tagged a friend to ask, "is this true?"

And McDonald's has just exclusively confirmed the news to us after contacting the fast food chain ahead of the launch.
