Maison Blanc has launched a whole host of new products, including some Halloween treats. In-store now is a Provençale Tart, made with flaky pastry, Emmental cheese, sliced tomatoes, Dijon mustard and aromatic Provençale herbs, as well as a Quiche Lorraine.

In October, the patisserie chain is launching its Halloween products, which will include Boris the Spider, an edible creepy crawly made from choux pastry, filled with vanilla diplomat cream, dark chocolate cremeux and flourless chocolate sponge.

For a dessert to share, the firm is offering a bitter orange mousse set inside a disc of dark chocolate mousse made with Sao Thome single origin chocolate and pieces of crispy honeycomb, all finished with an orange-coloured white chocolate glaze and marzipan spider. Pumpkin pie, sold whole or by the slice, will also be available.

RSP: Boris the Spider: £3.50; orange mousse: £14.95/£3.25 (whole/individual); pumpkin pie £8.99/£2.95 (whole/per slice)
