Nothing to Snicker About

Okay, so, I'm out running errands this afternoon and I realize I haven't had breakfast or lunch. (Could that be the reason I'm so grumpy? We'll open that for debate later.) I grab a Snickers off the impulse buying rack and add it to my purchases. Once in the car, I open the wrapper and take a nice, big bite.

Something's not quite right. I fish around in my mouth and pull out a stick. Yup, you read me right - a stick. I look at the rest of the candy bar. Sure enough, the other half of the stick is still in the bar. I broke it right in half when I bit into it.

The rest of my bite went into the sack. I came home, showed my husband (it's always good to have a witness) and called the number on the back of the bar. They're having me mail them the rest of the bar, the wrapper, and the stick. I'm sure it will be a fun surprise when they realize that part of that stick has been in my mouth. I wouldn't want to have their job, dissecting saliva-covered bits of food from all over the world . . .

But I digress.

They're also going to send me a bunch of coupons for free products. That's nice. But I hope they are good for a variety of different candy bars -- I don't think I'll be in the mood for a Snickers for quite a while.

Holy yikes! I've heard Snickers can be sticky, but really!

I once found a hair in my grasshopper cookies. I ended up with 4 free keebler product coupons so it was worth it. Good luck.

The absolute worst one I ever heard was a mouse in a bucket of KFC. Yep, it was breaded and fried.

This will keep me from eating Snickers for awhile . . .well, no, not really. Actually I would eat sticks if they're covered in chocolate . . .

Ick! And to think I just ate a Snickers last night!

Seriously, if anyone is concerned about my wildland fire danger, check for updates on my blog, Writer in the Pines.

Ew! Ew! EW! To all of that! Yucky!

But - to add my own story: When I was 12 I found worms in the pineapple on the Wendy's salad bar. Now at 29, I still have a hard time eating anything from there.

Sorry to hear about your Snickers bar. What a tragedy to have chocolate spoiled in such a fashion!
