Opening a bag of snack is always exciting; we always hope to find some interesting surprises inside. Whether it's a mini toy or a candy, we are always happy to find these tit-bits inside our snack, even if they are not useful. But this man was in for a huge shock when he found insects and animal parts inside the chips. Writer, comedian and a father, Jensen Karp, shared a picture of the contaminated cereal on Twitter and in no time, it went viral.
Writer Jensen Karp shared a photo of the contents of his Cinnamon Toast Crunch pack on Twitter, which had two unusual objects amid the cereal having a striking resemblance to shrimp tails. He tagged the official account of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, writing, Ummmm @CTCSquares - why are there shrimp tails in my cereal? (This is not a bit).

The horror for Jensen Karp didn't end here. On further digging into the pack of chips, he also found some cereals with black spots that he thought might be "maggots or bugs."
For real - someone tell me they aren't like maggots or bugs. Is it shrimp adjacent? (also just found this weird cinnamon covered pea thing?)

The brand responded with an apology, saying, "We understand your concern. We promise you that our team will look into this and get to the bottom of it - but in the meantime, we want to do everything we can to make this right. We'll need further details to research."
Jensen Karp posted back a hilarious tweet with a picture of shrimp and wrote, "Ok, I have sent you a DM. Fair warning, I look different since eating your cereal today."

Take a look at some of tweets:
This situation is very reminiscent of a similar scenario that I had with a bag of Life Savers Gummies: Sours: what you see in my photos is a sole large piece that oddly merged together; when I bit into it, it tasted like a capsule of Hair, Skin, and Nails.https://t.co/lseX4vHOQv— Roya Rockwood (@Royameadow) March 23, 2021
