    I am 100% certain I'm going to regret starting this thread, but here goes: what's the weirdest/grossest thing you've found in your food?

    This can be food you bought from the grocery store or food from a restaurant.

    I once got a small rock on a frozen pizza, and a half-inch long plastic tube inside a sausage.

    My sister once found a piece of glass in her cake mix. And a worm on the bottom on her cheese-its. Thinking about it, she has really bad luck with food, she also found half a spider in her salad, we assume that she at the other half.

    The chef was lovin' it a little too much!

    I found most of a tomato worm in some spaghetti. The tomatoes in the sauce were apparently a little too fresh.

    That reminds me, I once had a small piece of glass in a box of chocolates.

    I also found a worm in a box of crackers, but I don't think it was there when I originally bought them - they were just sitting in my cupboard for too long!

    Caterpillar in the lettuce.

    My tooth in my breakfast (baby tooth when I was young didn't notice it drop out).

    Only strange thing I've had in food was a jock off sized bolt in a BigMac. All I got was a couple of free dinner tickets. Should have taken that further, done some fake choke, reached a nice settlement and so on :eek:.

    Mushrooms. Those should never be found in my food.

    The worst was sliver of glass in a salad. The restaurant replaced the salad. Dumb. Any restaurant owner or manager with half a brain would comp the entire meal, offer you dessert and drinks, and hope you don't sue.

    The second-worst was plastic wrap under a slice of meatloaf. That restaurant did comp me the meal. I hope they also fired the cook.

    Free protection?

    A live, full ;), slug, in a salad at a small country inn just outside Vienna, Austria.

    I took it out, with it's piece of lettuce, to much laughter at the table, and continued eating. That staff was aghast, I was laughing.

    Some local wine had been consumed up to that point, I might add.

    It was me who discovered it, as it was my McDouble. I went to add ketchup to said McDouble, and noticed said prophylactic. I took it up to the guy behind the counter and said "Do you think this is funny"? In which he replied saying "Real funny, trying to get free food by contaminating your own" Apparently since I am a teenager he thought I was pulling his leg. I left, with the burger still on the counter, condom and all.:mad: Apparently since I am a teenager he though I was pulling his leg.

    Still rolled up, so I am assuming new.

    I used to work at that McDonalds, I don't go there anymore. I've pretty much stopped eating McDonalds' food altogether (Still drinks and ice cream seldomly) Not because of the condom incident, rather I think most of the food they serve is disgusting.

    I dont know if this counts, but...
    There was once a cockroach in the can of cat food. Which probably means that the factory was infested with cockroaches....:eek:

    Chickens don't have spinal vertebra so what you probably saw was the neck. Some people actually eat chicken necks.

    Speaking of that, and since this topic came up with my family some months ago, my mum found a Parsons Nose in some KFC meal back in the 80's. She hasn't been back since and its put me off too.
