Hence the reason it's in the Urban Legends section...

However, it seems that most urban legends are at least 'loosly' based on an actual event...

I personally beleive that the "Urban Legend" is true because halloween has been around for years and there has to be some madmen out there...

I hear reports of it every year. Last year it was some guy sticking broken blades in the apples he was giving out and sewing needles through the wrappers of the candy bars.

Always good to check your (or kids tongue.gif ) candy before you eat it (or they eat it). yes.gif

there was actually a recall on mars bars and snickers bars because a note was sent to the company saying that some of the candy bars had been poisoned. i'll try and find an article on it original.gif

The last time us three kids went trick or treating, our mother found that some of my brother's candy had been tampered with.  She took all our candy and threw it out, so we couldn't have it.

There isnt much worry today about halloween candy because of the store bought candy. They make it pretty hard to tamper with it. and as to the razor in the apple myth, if i get an apple in my bag, that house is getting egged! devil.gif

I only eat things that are clearly sealed by companies, the rest I just don't eat. I think it's just common sense not to eat a baggy of cookies given to me by a stranger.

the begining of this legend was a fact. there was a man putting razor blades in candy, store bought, and a littel kid was rushed to the hospital because he ate a piece and his throat was all tore up.  iforget where it happened but as far as i know there was only like two acual happenings of this kind. hospitals in PA, OH, and OK still open the x-ray section so that the candy can be checked.

I saw on the news a woman was arrested for passing out poisoned candy last halloween in massachusetts.

Screwed up stuff like this happens alot.

I don't think you can blame urban legends or the internet as much as the fact that some people are just sick.

You can't really ever say something like this is an urban legend. There's no doubt it has happened or atleast will happen one time.
