Morrisons has launched a super-strength garlic bread, said to be 600% stronger than a traditional garlic flatbread, for Halloween. 

The potent 10-inch ‘Dracula’s Devil Garlic Bread’ is the garlickiest supermarket garlic bread ever, said Morrisons. It will be available from the retailer’s pizza counters across the UK for £1.60 from today (Thursday 26 October) to Sunday 5 November.

To achieve the super-strength taste, the effects of which could last up to 12 hours, three types of concentrated garlic are blended as part of a unique recipe. Customers are recommended to eat green apples, fresh mint and parsley afterwards to neutralise the lingering garlic bread flavours.

“For all those families who wanted to be truly prepared, this product will scare away even the most determined vampires. Perhaps one to avoid on first dates, though,” said Morrisons pizza buyer Jenny Dixon. The limited-edition bread even comes with a sticker saying ‘not for vampires or first dates’.

Morrisons isn’t the only one to unveil Halloween-specific NPD, with Marks & Spencer unveiling a spooky version of its popular Colin the Caterpillar cake, while Asda has rolled out pumpkin-shaped crumpets.
