October is reaching a close, the clocks are about to change and the spooky season is upon us.
Whether you like it or not, porches across the world will soon be adjourned with pumpkins and squashes of all shapes and sizes, with designs ranging from the spookily intricate to the silliest of simple.
A minimalist design that we approve of.
Here at Candide, we appreciate fine art in all its forms, including squash-based.
Which is why, this Halloween, we're running a competition for the best-decorated pumpkin or squash!
If you want to get more intricate, it will be noticed!
Enter by posting your photo with the hashtag #hallowinner to be in with the chance of winning some Candide treats!
The winner will be picked by a panel of expert pumpkin art connoisseurs at the start of November.
And why not use your pumpkin leftovers to make one of the tasty recipes below!
