5 Dead Good Halloween Goodies at St. Pancras
1. Beware of Fortnum's Bakery
We're huge fans of the creativity Fortnum's brings to their seasonal confectionery, and this Halloween you can find everything from Chocolate Skulls to Trick or Treat Truffles.
Without a doubt one of the highlights of the spooky season has got to be Fortnum's horror themed biscuits; despite their gruesome appearance, these iced biscuits are a little box of gingerbread tastiness. With a number of different selection boxes to choose from, you can pick one up for £16.95... who knew a crime scene could be so tasty?
2. Pumpkin Bucket of Treats
If your Halloween is less cosying up on the sofa with a scary-film and more trick-or-treating with the little monsters, then this pumpkin trick-or-treat bucket is a nice touch which compliments any witch's outfit. The felt pumpkin bucket is just £5 from John Lewis & Partners and the station's store has lots of goodies to fill it up with too.
3. Get Your Head into a Good Ghost Story
In need of a book that'll send a chill down your spine? Hatchards is the place for you. Since their move to a bigger store down the Arcade, Hatchards has become St. Pancras' Aladdin's Cave for good reads.
For those who love a book to make the blood run cold, we recommend Shirley Jackson's eerie We Have Always Lived in the Castle and Susan Hill's classic ghost story, The Woman In Black.
4. Nespresso's Pumpkin Spice Cake Coffee
By the time Halloween comes round we've come to expect our favourite coffee shops to feature a seasonal pumpkin spice coffee, and the station's Nespresso is no exception, although we have to admit that their entry to the Halloween blends has a little extra kick.
With Nespresso's Pumpkin Spice Cake Coffee expect notes of cardamon, cinnamon, sweet pumpkin and cloves... yes, cloves! These sweet flavours blend nicely with Ethiopian and Brazilian Arabica beans which deliver a fantastic dessert-inspired coffee.
Sounds interesting? We suggest you visit our Nespresso store, speak to the coffee gurus and have a taster.
5. Funnybones is an Absolute Kids Classic
We're back at Hatchards and we couldn't resist flicking through a copy of Janet and Allan Ahlberg's Funnybones...
This is the first in the popular Funnybones series, where we are introduced to the wonderful humour and fun that the books have become best known. The Funnybones series are great first books for children learning to read; telling the story of funny skeletons that are definitely not the scary sort!
