* 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).

* WebVideo/RoosterTeethShorts: Geoff finds one in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlYtwandSU8 Haunted Tales of Mystery]]. Jack spots it and warns him in time, only for Geoff to turn the apple over and take a bite out of an actual shaving razor.

[[AC:{{Film}}]]
* The original ''Film/NightOfTheDemons1988'' featured a frame story of this. A cranky old man is angered by children, and comes home on Halloween with a bag full of apples and razor blades. The final scene involved the old man sitting down for a breakfast of apple pie made by his wife. He only asks her after taking a few bites where she got the apples...
** Of course, FridgeLogic says that to make apple pie, you have to slice the apples.
*** Of course, there's also FridgeBrilliance in that's how the wife found out and ''deliberately'' left the razors in there.
* In ''Film/TrickRTreat'', the SerialKiller principle puts poison in some of his candy. There's also CreepyChild Sam, who uses a razor-chocolate bar as a weapon in one scene.
** Also, as a nod to this trope, [[spoiler: when Mr Kreeg falls down the stairs, they're littered with hypodermic needles, straight pins, shards of glass, razor blades and candy]].

* In the beginning of the ''{{Series/Firefly}}'' episode "War Stories," the crew is indulging in a box of fresh apples Jayne bought for them, when Kaylee asks Zoe why she always cuts them with a knife instead of biting in. She relates a story from the war, where the Alliance and Independent armies had a standoff, got to talking, and the Independents mentioned they had no food. The Alliance soldiers tossed over apples--which had "Griswold" grenades in them and before anyone realized it, "[[YourHeadAsplode there's three guys just kind of end at the ribcage]]."

* In Ireland, the Hallowe'en Barm Brack (similar to fruit cake) generally has an (easily swallowed) ring in it as a fortune-teller, with the idea being that whoever found the ring would be married within the year. Traditionally, it may have included a dried pea, a stick, a coin and a piece of cloth: all small, hard objects.
