Maggots are all natural.

It sounds gross but maggots are not the worst thing to eat. If you are not expecting it yeah that would be nasty to bite into. But hey free maggot bar.
 
2013-12-27 04:26:27 PM  
Never been to a Big Lots.  I had no idea they sold food.   Much less maggots.

biatch please...you know damn well Big Lots is filled with expired shiat...that's why you shop there.  Older crap so you can save a few bucks.

Just had the same thing happen with a sealed Clif bar. Absent-mindedly opened it and took a couple of bites while reading something onscreen. Noticed that it tasted kind of odd. When I looked down, it had several pantry moth larva wiggling around in it.

Now, to be fair, the box of bars was probably about a year old, but still ... CSB.

Fake story is fake. Maggots aren't going to be alive inside a sealed pack, and it would be blindingly obvious from the maggots crawling over the place if the pack was unsealed.

Not to mention that maggots aren't going to eat something as dry and cardboard-like as a Kashi bar in the first place. Do you see maggots eating cardboard boxes often? Nope, They want wet and loaded with sugar / fat.

I go to a Big Lots store right next to the hockey rink I play beer league at, just to buy chocolate milk after a game.

It's like 80 cents for a big carton of low-fat chocolate milk! Love the stuff.

That same carton would be over 2 bucks at the grocery store.

Farking seriously.  This is gross and unfortunate, but it's not surprising, it's not really a health hazard,and there's no reason to whine to the news about it.  Tell the store and get your money back.  Hell, ask for a hefty gift card if you want.  Once the store manager learns about it, that shiat will get pulled off the shelves, which is really all that needs to happen.

Meh, that's just sugar in the chocolate re-crystalizing on the surface.  Now, if it's completely covered in that then it's really old, and stale and dry...so, yuck.  But the white is harmless.

To be fair, expired is different than being contaminated with fly larvae. She wasn't complaining it was stale.
 
2013-12-27 04:35:46 PM  
So, what you're saying is the maggots hide in the Kashi bars and wait until the expiration date?

/Psst..Dude, chill! We're still pretending to be raisins until next Tuesday...

7. Eating Maggots
Yes, not only are maggots edible, they are a traditional superfood. They are also probably the most revolting insect one could imagine.

Traditionally, many cultures have relished maggots, leaving fish or meat out to become saturated with them and then eating the maggots raw. There is logic to this: a diet of exclusively lean meat causes severe health problems, eventually leading to kidney failure and death.

What does this have to do with maggots? They are capable of transforming lean meat into fat. Maggots are extremely fatty and a rich source of essential amino acids, making them nutritionally far more valuable than lean meat.

They don't have internal digestive systems of their own, so they secrete gastric juices directly onto meat, causing it to degrade or spoil (or "predigest" if you have a taste for it). That is why there is so much hysteria around maggots on meat, not because they make it unsafe to consume, but because they alter its flavor, texture and palatable shelf life.

Maggots will taste different depending on their food source. I have harvested them from meat that was left hanging for a bit too long, thrown them in a pan and fried them up. If they were on a rotting carcass with the guts and all still intact, they would have a stronger flavor. In any case, they are an acquired taste probably well worth acquiring. Their ability to transform lean meat into essential fats is both magical and potentially life-saving under certain conditions.

Someone once told me their grandfather, during the Depression of the 1930s, would take maggots that grew on a hunk of meat he kept in the cellar and spread them on toast like butter.

Maggots are not as good as frogs.

Well, your food isn't ever 100% pure whatever you think you're buying. Just so happened the insect bits had some kind of viable fly egg for that particular expired food product.

That is caused by improper storage. Heat caused some cocoa butter to separate and it forms a white bloom on the surface. It's ok to eat but the texture will be off.

Several months ago in an attempt to get me to "eat healthier" the wife replaced my Frosted Shredded Wheat with Kashi cereal.

Largely my mornings went to as tolerable as could be to, well, about the same except for the basic fact that I now hate eating breakfast.

I've mentioned this several times but every time I think I want to grab something before I head out the door I look up on top of the 'fridge and decide I'd rather just go hungry.

The hope is that somehow this story goes viral and the company tanks and I don't ever have to eat that crap again.

Oh yeah I know that, but I don't think the maggots showed up just because it's past it's expiration, as Crass and Jaded Mother Farker noted.

Yeah for many items the expiration date is pretty generous, it was probably OK. Except for maybe the larva part which may not be true.

Not true . A coworker of mine opened a pack of nabs and when he pulled the cracker apart (oreo style) maggots were in the middle of the cheese eating their home from the  inside . .

1) If your impulse control is so poor that as soon as you feel a touch of hunger you must immediately buy and eat a candy bar, even a "healthy" one like a Kashi bar, then I know why you have a weight issue.

2) Who the hell buys food at Big Lots and doesn't check the date?

3) Who the hell buys food at Big Lots?

4) The maggots were probably the healthiest part of the Kashi bar

5) In some cultures maggots are a delicacy

6) She kept them as pets?

If it is legit, the package seal may not have been good.  I once bought an energy bar and while I was working to open it up at one end, the bar fell out through the other side.

It might be the bar had what I'd refer to as meal worms, and she's either not familiar with them or else doesn't know what else to call them but 'maggot' (or could be exaggerating to make it sound more gross.) Sounds more likely.

Most likely pantry moth larvae, which look very much like maggots.  And I've seen them infest sealed bags of uncooked rice, so a Kashi bar isn't much of a stretch.

There are more choices for breakfast than cold cereal.  Oatmeal and cream of wheat can be microwaved in 3 minutes.  Ditto to scramble an egg or two in the microwave.  Toast and peanut butter.  Yogurt and fruit.  Hashbrown patties in the toaster oven.

"Most likely pantry moth larvae, "
what that farker said

Pantry moths/larvae can get through the box and the package. They will literally eat through thin plastic. Those things will get in cheap ziplock bags no problem, cereal boxes too. They will live in a small airtight container for a long time, so you could even have them sealed at the factory (highly likely that wasn't the case at a Biglots, but a fresh box could happen). They are a biatch to get rid of. The larvae stage can stay around for a long time before it turns into a moth.
