Kids today will never understand how good we had it as kids in the 70s and 80s.

Is this when parents started getting scared about tampered Halloween candy, etc.? For some reason, I thought those fears/urban legends didn't start until much later.

They were putting razor blades in candy and apples in the 80s. My mom and other parents in my town took kids collected candy to the local hospital and they x-rayed it for free.

The candy bars given out these days aren't big enough to fit a razor blade.

I remember rumors of razor blades in apples going back to the '60s.

Video will soon be cancelled and account suspended due to the little boy wearing an Indian costume with feathered headband.

R2 We worried about that stuff back in 1971.

I was always slightly disappointed when my parents DIDN'T find a razor blade in my candy.

This could not be made today as the religious right would have a huge issue with witches costumes.

The mom changed the kid's costume from a witch to a klansman in no time.

The princess looked like she was wearing a Klu Kluck Klan robe. OMG!

R6, R8, thanks. For some reason, I thought that fear originated in the '80s during the satanic panic.
R3, I thought the razor blades in Halloween candy was mainly an urban legend? Like syringes left in payphone coin returns?

R20 there were a few real cases of it happening.

All that business about razor blades in apples and poisoned candy was urban legend/hysteria.

The real cases of candy tampering came from the victims' own families, not random strangers.

Yes, I remember it was mid—1970s or so when there was a new resurgence of tampered Halloween candy panic, maybe made more so by the separate Tylenol bottles tampering that started going on then.

That kid was better off as the little witch instead of the KKK wife.

Just put orange reflective tape on the witch costume if you have to.

The Tylenol tampering happened circa 1982, R27.
