Candy Apples

Candy Apples

Rather than bobbing for apples, we prefer to indulge in the caramel-covered candy kind. For the real thing try Chicago's Affy Tapple, developed by Mrs. Edna Kastrup in 1948. 960 1280

M&M's

M&M's

You've probably heard that the candy shell on your M&M's keeps them from melting (making them popular with soldiers during WWII), but do you know who they were named after? The 2 “M”s stand for Forrest Mars, Sr., and Bruce Murrie of Hershey's, who created the candies in 1941. 960 1280

Candy Corn Oreos

Candy Corn Oreos

Oreo released this limited-edition flavor with a lot of fanfare, but the so-sweet-it-hurts cookie has gotten mixed reviews. Candy corn fans, maybe it's better with milk? 960 1280

St. Louis Cemetery No. 1

St. Louis Cemetery No. 1

Locals, visitors and paranormal investigators believe St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 is the most haunted cemetery in the world. Many ghosts haunt this famous graveyard in New Orleans, including Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau. Because most of the city is submerged in water, the dead are buried on top of the ground. Some visitors have heard eerie screams from inside the tombs and have been eyewitnesses to the ghosts of animals, including cats and dogs. Take a picture here and a strange orb or ghost may make an appearance in your photo. 960 1280

Highgate Cemetery

Highgate Cemetery

Highgate Cemetery in London is perhaps one of the most actively haunted cemeteries in the UK. With 50,000 graves on site, it’s not a surprise why ghosts still roam this spooky spot and its underground catacombs. Ghost stories about the cemetery include tales of vampires who some claim drain the blood from dead animals found in the graveyard. And rumors continue to spread about seeing an imp-like creature, a ghostly bicycle rider and a mysterious man in a top hat. 960 1280

Salem Cemetery

Salem Cemetery

Locals, who visit Salem Cemetery in Hendrysberg, OH, have seen the ghost of Louiza Fox, the first murdered citizen of Kirkwood Township.

Bachelors Grove Cemetery

Bachelors Grove Cemetery

Located in Midlothian, IL, Bachelors Grove Cemetery is rumored to be the scariest haunted cemetery in the Chicago area. This area was once a dumping ground for Chicago gangsters during the 1920s. For a number of years, witnesses have claimed to see ghosts and a phantom car that disappears along the turnpike near the graveyard. Not even daylight is safe. Violent cries of a small child are often heard in the evening. 960 1280

Gettysburg Cemetery

Gettysburg Cemetery

Phantom figures in both Union and Confederate uniforms still pace Gettysburg’s battlefield and cemetery -- the site of one of the deadliest battles in American history. A man, seen wearing a black hat with a star, often tries to converse with tourists and pose with families for photos. For the ultimate haunted experience, stay at the Farnsworth House Inn, where Confederate snipers hid during the battle and their ghosts still roam today. 960 1280

Westminster Burial Ground

Westminster Burial Ground

In Baltimore, MD, Western Burial Ground is where the remains of famous people reside, including Edgar Allan Poe, Francis Scott Key, US President James Buchanan and soldiers from the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. The catacombs under Westminster Hall have been the source of many ghostly tales. One old ghost story refers to a skull of a murdered minister that screams all day and night. Rumors are that the skull was bound and gagged in a block of cement, but apparently that hasn’t stopped the blood-curdling screams. 960 1280

Chase Vault

Chase Vault

If you’re near Christ Church, Barbados, we suggest you check out the Chase Vault, best known for a widespread legend of mysterious moving coffins. According to the creepy tale, each time the heavily-sealed vault was opened in the early 19th century for the burial of a family member -- all of the lead coffins had changed position. Visit the infamous gravesite and determine if the tale is fact or fiction. 960 1280

Resurrection Cemetery

Resurrection Cemetery

On the way to the Chicago’s Resurrection Cemetery, don’t be surprised to see a phantom hitchhiker named Bloody Mary, who asks for a ride to the graveyard, but mysteriously vanishes into thin air. Travelers may spot Thomas Milners and his sister Marlene on the side of the road covered in blood. The two were struck and killed by a car in 1959 while going home from a family burial. And if that’s not bizarre enough, locals and visitors have claimed that they saw a vampire bride searching for her head in the cemetery. So be prepared for a few extraordinary paranormal experiences here. 960 1280
