It helps that she reverse-pickpockets the tampered candy into their trick-or-treat bags

* ''Series/{{Oz}}'' had a member of TheMafia killed by ground glass slipped in his food over a long period. The problem with this myth is that any glass fragments large enough to cause damage would be noticed when the victim ate it. Even if he didn't, he would seek medical help long before the damage became fatal.

* In the Creator/SvenHassel novels, before they become FireForgedFriends [[DumbMuscle Tiny]] is fed ground glass by the Legionnaire, but it only seems to increase his ''joie de vivre''. This is probably meant to imply the big brute is MadeOfIron, rather than because the technique doesn't work.

* The King Cake is a traditional pastry eaten during the Mardi Gras season, and oftentimes contains a small trinket--usually a tiny plastic baby--representing the infant Jesus hidden inside. The cake is hollow inside and the baby is easy enough to spot, but bakers have lately began leaving the baby outside the cake to avoid liability, on the off-chance some idiot chokes on it while wolfing down a piece.

* In the ''Series/{{Monk}}'' episode "Mr. Monk Goes Home Again," Paul Gilstrap planned to use poisoned Neptune candy bars to [[SerialKillingsSpecificTarget cover the murder of his wife]]. Unfortunately, his employer caught him putting the poison back, which meant that the police would connect him to any tetrachlorodrine poisoning deaths, and he had to get all of the candy bars he had poisoned out of circulation. He failed to get one from an armored car driver who had purchased it and already taken a bite. Since Gilstrap knew that the poison was quick-acting, he caught up to the driver just before he collapsed from the poisoning. Gilstrap then grabbed the dying driver's gun and shot him five times at point-blank range, thinking the police would not do a toxicology on a shooting victim. Except Adrian finds a dead pigeon outside Gilstrap's house hours later while trick-or-treating with Julie.

* [[YouCanPanicNow Fear of this happening]] causes some communities to go to extremes like x-raying the kids' candy. Of course, some parents choose for a more low-tech solution like not letting the kids eat anything that's clearly homemade and making sure none of the store-bought candy looks like it's been tampered with.

* In ''Literature/HarryPotter'', Hagrid's cooking is a bit questionable, Harry found a talon in his casseroles.
* Played with in Creator/JRRTolkien's novella ''Literature/SmithOfWoottonMajor'': for the Feast of Good Children, a Great Cake is baked full of toys and prizes (like the "gatteau de roi" mentioned below in the Real Life section). One prize is a strange little star. Young Smith gets it in his slice of cake and swallows it, which later allows him to travel to Faery.

* There are only two instances of children actually dying from eating candy that was tampered with; in both cases, [[OffingTheOffspring the victims died at the hands of their own families]]. Both cases are [[http://www.snopes.com/horrors/poison/halloween.asp discussed]] on ''[[{{WebSite/Snopes}} Snopes.com]]'' as well as other cases which were initially thought to involve Halloween poisonings. The presence of foreign objects in candy, including needles, has occasionally been shown as true, but only in isolated cases.
