What is an urban legend? Full transparency, I had to look it up myself to make sure I know what I'm talking about. The definition of an urban legend according to the Oxford Dictionary is, a humorous or horrific story or piece of information circulated as though true, especially one purporting to involve someone vaguely related or known to the teller.


Even the words urban legend make my skin crawl to be honest. So let me tell the story of the spookiest urban legend that many Texans have heard about but so many others are still in the dark about. Wait, don't say dark and don't you dare read this in the dark.

(Urban) legend has it that years ago children began to go missing mysteriously from their homes. No leads, no explanation, it was as if these children were vanishing into thin air. Slowly but surely the story began to get out that some small children had 'survived the candy lady.'


What? Who is the candy lady? According to onlyinyourstate.com, 

The candy lady allegedly lures children to their doom by leaving enticing goodies on their windowsills just before bedtime.

The children wait for their parents to go to bed, eat all of the candy she leaves and fall asleep. The candy lady then steals the children in the middle of the night, and drinks their blood loaded with sugar from the candy she left them.


It has been said that the only person to investigate these incidents and try to solve the mystery of the candy lady, turned up dead himself. His eyes were stabbed out with a fork and candy was found in his pockets. The work of the candy lady? Possibly, considering this sheriff is the only person to have even considered looking into the case of the candy lady....parents, remind your children to never take candy from strangers. You never know if it might have come from the candy lady.
