A guy claims he found the tail end of some shrimp in his cereal — something General Mills assures him can’t be the case, but he’s definitely not buying it.
Writer/Producer Jensen Karp documented what he claims was a gross morning breakfast session Monday, posting pics of various artifacts he says he found inside his new box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. He says he found shrimp tails in there … 2 of ’em to be exact!!!
Jensen started by asking (and officially tagging) CTC’s Twitter account why there were apparently crustacean remnants in his just-unsealed box … which sparked quite a journey of what he describes as excuses and gaslighting.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch, at first, responded by apologizing and asking for more details … while also offering a new box as a quick remedy. Then, CTC claimed, upon further examination, its quality control team came to the conclusion that they weren’t shrimp tails … but simply large, dried-up sugar clumps!
Jensen — who’s married to “Boy Meets World” star Danielle Fishel, BTW — didn’t seem to accept that answer … as he posted close-up shots of the alleged shrimp tails. He claims he went digging even further and found more gross stuff … including a small piece of string and tiny specks of black gunk on some of the cereal.
Also, many of the squares have black marks, and some are dyed red? And yes, I ate a bowl before noticing all this. pic.twitter.com/Y9WWmsTznP
