Stuff gets into our food and drinks. It happens. I challenge the person who says they’ve never found a hair in their pasta (blech) or a dead wasp in their turkey sub from Wegmans (true story). It’s gross, but if we want to eat, it’s an unfortunate fact of life we just have to deal with. A condom, though? That is just all kinds of wrong.
A woman in Sweden was pouring the last bit of filmjolk, a popular fermented milk, into her dog’s bowl when oops! Out came a condom. Oh, and the wrapper, a receipt, and a plastic ring.
I don’t know about you, but that’s just about the nastiest thing I’ve ever heard. I mean, I don't even know what to say here. Well, actually, I do: Barf.
Things, bad things, happened to me when I found that wasp. I couldn't eat for days. I couldn't lay eyes on an insect without my gag reflex being triggered -- and now this has brought all those hellish memories back. Times two!
Of course, this didn't stop me from taking a trip down Google Lane to see what other unbelievably disgusting things people have found in their food -- and let me tell you, a wasp is looking pretty good right now.
First, I stumbled upon the time Katherine Ortega discovered a fried chicken head in her Chicken McNuggets. Oof. Wow.
Then, I read about how Tim Hoffman found a frog in his bag of frozen veggies. Oh boy.
After that, I perused an article about Fred and Amy Denegri finding a mouse in their can of Pepsi. No comment.
But nothing -- and I mean nothing -- can top Clarence Stowers finding a severed finger in his pint of frozen custard! Mommy! Help!
Pretty yucky stuff, if I do say so myself. Kind of makes me want to never -- ever -- not grow my own food, wash it 17 times, and cook it myself again.
What’s the grossest thing you’ve ever found in your food?
