When I was in grade school, I bit halfway into a Reece's Peanut Butter cup (the big kind) to find that I wasn't eating peanut butter and chocolate. Oh no. I was eating worm and it's egg sack (or something like that). Half of the worm was all wiggling and writhing...

I didn't throw up or anything. I just put the candy - worm and all - in a ziploc bag and took it home. My parents didn't do anything about it because they were friends with the owner of the store where they bought the candy.

To this day, though, I always break my candy open before biting into it.

Something like that never leaves you. X-I

Wood said the school district has temporarily pulled all chips from its vending machines and lunch lines.

This makes no sense to me. Why not just feel each bag of chips?

It's not like we're talking about a roach here.

Well if a mouse got in one bag he was probably pissing on the chips that went in the other bags. :-D

Now that's probably the case anyway with all chips but I could see how it would be unsettling to have the fact shoved in your face.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

lmao... I knew there was a good reason I didn't like chips.

Ew. 8-o I can understand you getting something for that, but it's not like the kid bit into the mouse. If he did then he should get something (but in a bag of chips you'd know if you were picking up a mouse instead of a chip, and probably wouldn't eat it. :*) )

A mouse in a bag of chips? Shocking. ;-7

There is no way Frito Lay will ever narrow it down to where the mouse came from. I don't even see how something like this found its way onto the news. The mouse could have gotten in the bag at the school, on the Frito Lay truck, at the Frito Lay warehouse in the town near the school, or any of several other places on the way.

If the bag was sealed then it narrows it down quite a bit.

Only thing worse than biting into something and seeing a worm is biting into something and seeing half a worm. :-P

It doesn't say anything about a sealed bag. :-?
