Mother Posts Awful Video Of Needle Hidden In Child’s Halloween Candy

A parent’s worst Halloween nightmare is finding that their kid’s candy has been tampered with. While there are always claims of odd things being found in candy bags, you always hope that these foreign objects are found before being consumed.

A woman in Blossvale, New York claimed she found a needle inside her 2-year-old’s Twizzler, as she posted a video of herself tearing through the candy for the reveal, November 2.

While these kind of claims are always susceptible to hoaxes, there were multiple police report filed in the Vernon, New York area according to CNY Central news. Police are aware of the neighborhoods where the mother and her child in the video went trick or treating, but there have been no reported arrests or charges, as of now.

Vernon PD also put out a public notice for citizens to be careful and check their candy carefully.

The shocking video shows the woman unwrapping what she said was a Twizzler package that was already partially opened. She said she thought her son had gotten into it for the packaging rip, but upon further inspection, she noticed something strange within.

As she tore through the candy, she revealed a threading needle within.

Some of the chronology in the video can be questioned, such as her shock to see the needle, which seemed for the first time, even though she said she had already alerted police about it.

Also, giving your 2-year-old candy is a little weird. You have to believe the candy was really for her.

If some scumbag really was handing out needle-filled candy for Halloween, you can only hope he gets his comeuppance.

Watch Jimmy Kimmel Tell His Daughter He Ate All Her Halloween Candy

Imagine you’re a kid, dressed up and ready for Halloween. After a long night of trick-or-treating, you only get to eat a few pieces before your parents tell you to save the rest for the next day. The only thing that gets you through the night is the thought of popping those sweet morsels of refined sugar into your mouth for breakfast. It’d be downright evil to suddenly take that hope away, right?

For the past six years, late night host Jimmy Kimmel does a bit where he pranks kids by having their parents record themselves telling them they ate all their Halloween candy.

Cruel? Yes. Hilarious? Even more so.

This year, Kimmel decided to shake things up by telling his own two-year-old daughter that he ate all of her Halloween candy. As you can see from the hilarious video, she wasn’t having any of Kimmel’s shenanigans.

Check it out for yourselves!

Gordon Ramsay Lists The 5 Worst Halloween Treats You Can Give Out

Gordon Ramsay’s not big on Halloween, but at least he won’t give shitty candy when your kids walk up to his door in their spooky costumes.

Having kids of his own, Ramsay’s very aware of what trick-or-treaters don’t want to see in their giant bags of candy, and in PSA-like fashion, Gordon appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to let us know that we shouldn’t be handing out these garbage candies and treats.

In his typical foul-mouthed fashion, Ramsay rips each item, and by the end of it, you’re going to just feel like an asshole for even considering giving these out to the happy little children in your neighborhood.

If you do give any of the following candies out, in the words of Ramsay himself, “F*ck off!”

Smarties

smarties

“Seriously, the perfect combination of aspirin and Tums. Smarties are for f*cking dummies.”

Circus Peanuts

“How f*ckin’ sad are they? You know what Circus Peanuts are? Clown s*it!”

Candy Corn

“It’s not candy, it’s not corn, it’s ear wax formed in the shape of a rotten tooth.”

Apples

If you have leftover Halloween candy, you might put it in a jar, or make an awesome dessert with it, but chances are you’ve never made art out of it.

A photographer from Central Florida used that leftover candy to create a little blue-collar town where the miniature residents are just trying to get through the work day.

From mining away at a lollipop, to drilling through a Smarties candy, the detail in this city is nothing short of amazing.

Check out the candy city below, and peep the whole album on Jaysuns photos:

A Hilariously Simple Guide To Spotting Sketchy Halloween Candy [WATCH]

One of the biggest things parents fear on Halloween is that their children will somehow come across a harmful object in their candy.

For one night a year, it is socially acceptable for parents to let strangers hand their kids ingestible substances, and for some odd reason, that practice ends up being dangerous sometimes.

Well, if you’re freaked out and have no idea how to spot dangerous items in candy bags, the Huffington Post created an easy guide to help you out.

Check out the vid below and keep your kids safe:

It’s July And Walgreens Is Already Selling Halloween Candy

halloweencreep2

Grocery stores are no strangers to getting seasonal a little earlier than necessary. You can walk into a Kroger grocery store in early November and hear Christmas music blaring down the aisles.

Releasing Halloween candy in July seems a little excessive, though.

Super coupon blogger Jill Cataldo said this was the case at her local Walgreens las the Chicago store already had its 3 MuskeFears and Brach’s classic candy corn and pumpkins.

Cataldo even held up a copy of the Northwestern Herald, dated as July 21, 2015, just in case she was pulling your skeleton leg.

I’m guessing we can expect Walgreens to put up its Christmas decorations next to the back-to-school stuff once August rolls around.

11 Ways to Transform Your Leftover Halloween Candy Into Something Sweeter

Halloween is finally over and now we’re left with the age old question that hits us all on November 1: “what the hell am I going to do with all this leftover candy?”

Now, all this candy overstock could be because you just didn’t get that many trick-or-treaters, or maybe you decided to buy extra just in case (aka you wanted a stash for yourself), or you swiped some of your kid’s hard-earned sweets. Yes, parents, we’ve been onto your little game for years now. No matter the reason, you still have a grip of candy staring you in the face with nothing to do other than stuff your face with it, which isn’t a bad thing, but it’s not the most creative way to use all that sugary gold.

Your buddies here at Foodbeast want to help you out with this candy conundrum by presenting you with some ways to spruce up those sweets into something even better. P.S. We’re totally not responsible if you a) overdo it or b) get a cavity.

So Apparently, the Average Halloween-er Will Spend Over $24 on Candy This Year

This year, 7/10 Americans will be celebrating Halloween, and they will, on average, spend nearly $80 bucks in honor of the holiday. Of that spending, which includes costumes, decorations and greeting cards, it’s estimated that $24.25 of that total will go to candy sales.

Full reports are in from the National Retail Federation and BIGinsight™ that speak to some of the massive spending that will take place this year. Infact, a Milo infographic cites that total Halloween spending is expected to reach $8 billion this year, and the $79.82 per person average spend per person is up $7.51 more than 2011. Terrible economy be damned.

But let’s talk candy. According to reports, while the average Halloween candy spend will be $24.25, men will outspend women on the teeth-rotting goodies by an average of $4.58. That’s right, next time you hear a female who says “I’ll eat you under the table when it comes to candy,” you’ll be able to do one of two things: (1) hit them with a “That’s what she said” zinger, and (2) point them to this article, and let them know what facts look like. Then again, this doesn’t prove that women consume less candy than men, just that men will be doing a better share of the purchasing*.

Continuing along, consumers aged 25-34 will spend more on Halloween Candy, on average, than any other age group (18+), with the second closest spender group being those aged 18-24. How do some of these figures stack up to your personal spending/celebratory habits for the upcoming Halloween holiday? On par? Too much? Too little?

Feel free to express yourself in the comments, let us know about your own spending habits — I’d love to hear from the 170 million planned Halloween celebrators who will supposedly be spending nearly $25 on Halloween candy this year.

Here’s a visualization of what this spending will look like not just from candy, but across all aspects of Halloween retail, including decorations and costumes:
