So my friend posted this on Facebook recently: 
 

The week before I saw this from my sister Ariane:



Then my sister mentioned, "Oh mom has a good story too!" so of course I had to ask her about it . . .

Growing up in Columbus, Ohio my mom had a favorite fried chicken joint and at some point in the 80s/90s she went and ordered her chicken. It came out nice and crispy and she could see it was well seasoned. Well upon further examination there was a dead fly stuck to the outside of the chicken. Too bad there were no smartphones back them to snap pictures! My mom postulates that the fly got stuck there after coming out the hot oil and died instantly then adhered to the chicken. EWWWWW!

The recent sharing of all this nastiness brought to mind a traumatizing food incident that happened when I was a child . . .

Back when I was a kid in Columbus there was a local news story about people who had been finding bugs in their candy bars. I may have between 8-10 years old, and I remember seeing the news story. This still didn't deter me from my obsession with candy bars (Symphony, Whatchamacallit and Mr. Goodbars were my favorite!). I remember I asked my mom for one and she reminded me of the news story, and I said it didn't matter. Well . . . I got home, took a bite and my candy bar appeared to be ALIVE! It was teeming with maggots. We bagged it up and reported it to the local news. The maggots then hatched into flies after a couple days. I still can't eat a Mr. Goodbar to this day, but I still like candy bars!

After sharing the apple picture with my sister we had this exchange in which I offered (IMHO) a brilliant solution:


Have you ever found a "surprise" in your food?
