Cadbury with wasp version of Fruit ‘n’ Nut?

January 27th, 2014 14 Comments By Mof Gimmers

Jake Keating from Liverpool got a nice surprise when he was about to tuck into a Cadbury’s chocolate bar. He opened up his treat and found a wasp embedded in the bar.

Cadbury, naturally, are going to launch an investigation. Presumably, the investigation will conclude that this sort of thing doesn’t normally happen and the whole thing is an unfortunate one-off.

Jake Keating tweeted the image and┬ácontacted Cadbury via their official account saying: “As if I have just found a WASP in my chocolate!!! What are you gonna do about this!?!”

The company replied: “We’d love to reply with a pun, but we want you to know how seriously we’re taking this, so we won’t.”

    There’s a sting in the tail of this story.

    A phosphatase test will answer a few questions here.

    Anyone else getting sick of these attention whores? Oh, I found something in my choc bar that shouldn’t be there, I had better go on the internet and make sure EVERYONE knows about it and demand some kind of compensation..

    Fuck. Off.

    Just get a refund/new chocolate bar from the manufacturer without behaving like a bell end, these things happen, it’s ok. Lets hope these people never come across a real problem in their lives, I’d imagine it would cause a stroke or the like.

    You’re actually allowed to have a certain amount by law (trace elements) as you can never 100% guarantee this sort of thing happening. Same with all food, insects will always find there way in no matter how stringent the quality control

    It’s called the Food Defect Action Levels in the US. I assume there are similar guidelines in the UK. Look it up on wikipedia, if your stomach is strong enough… @_@;

    @Aelynn: There isn’t anything similar in the UK.

    What companies might try to use is a “due diligence” defence.

    This kind of thing could be easily faked by heating up the chocolate and pressing something into it. Not saying thats the case here….just sayin’…. in general.

    I found a live wasp in a sealed bag of lettuce once. Took it back to waitrose, they apologized and gave me another….Job done.
    These things happen, don’t make a big deal out of it..
