A trope common in UrbanLegend, this is when [[TamperingWithFoodAndDrink someone puts something sharp, pointy, or just unpleasant into someone's food]]. Common objects to put in are pins, needles, and razor blades. Note that this is ''not'' just for Halloween candy; this applies to all foods equally, but gifts tend to be prevalent.

* An apparently unique case happened in Germany, where a man ingested cobra poison after eating a banana, but he survived, if with great difficulty. The police initially suspected a crime until the remaining bananas were analyzed and bite marks were found on one of them. What likely happened was that a cobra happened to bite into the banana and injected its poison into it, and the poison then slowly spread into the other bananas as well.

* There was an episode of ''TheCommish'' where someone was giving out poisoned candy, so the title Commish had his son go out trick-or-treating, which they then tested one piece at a time as it was gotten. Turned out it was a neighbor of the Commish's.

* In the ''FreaksAndGeeks'' Halloween episode, the geeks discuss some of the foreign objects rumored to be hidden in the candy, including razors and pins, heroin, rat hair, and excrement. Later in the episode, Mrs. Weir attempts to hand out homemade cookies and is angrily rebuffed by another mom, who refuses to let her kids accept unwrapped treats due to the possibility of tampering.

* Similarly to the above, for Epiphany/the Feast of the Three Kings in France, it is the custom to bake a cake called the galette/gâteau des rois, with a trinket or bean in it, with whoever finds it getting to be "king for the day." You need to be careful eating the cake, however, because the "fève" (the aforementioned generally-porcelain trinket, after the French word for "bean") can make your teeth hurt a lot if you bite on it.

** An eight year old boy died after eating Pixy Stix that had been laced with cyanide; however, it turned out that the poisoned candy had been planted in his trick-or-treat bag by his own father, who also gave a few pieces of tampered candy to his daughter as well as three other children in order to [[InvokedTrope cover his tracks]] so that he could collect on the life insurance (thankfully, neither the daughter nor any of the other kids ate the candy).
