I love pistachios, but how often do you crack one open to find rotten nutmeat? 1 in 99 can be pretty close, depending where you buy.

"It had eaten half the nut and then died inside it. (1)

"It turned my stomach, it was disgusting. I'll never eat pistachios again, it wrecked my Easter.
"I don't think I'll be able to eat a chocolate egg now." (2)



1) On the bright side, it died happy.

2) Always with the drama.

So they found one more than the ten they are allowed to find per 10 lbs of nuts for a passing grade on the quality check?
 
2014-04-22 02:48:47 PM  
hmmm tastes nutty.
 
2014-04-22 02:53:32 PM  
If it were just nuts, there wouldn't be a maggot in there.

That's not all that uncommon with pistachios, actually...

You poor precious flower, you.

You've probably eaten your own weight in insects by now and were too dumb to know it.

How the fark did we make it this far as a species?  Before we industrialized our food and put in all these quality controls, you were a hundred times more likely to find a bug or a worm in your food.  Eat your larva and shut the fark up. There are starving kids in Sudan who would love that extra protein, you spoiled biatch.

"Imagine if I'd eaten it? What then?

Then you would have gotten some extra protein.  Not the end of the world by a long shot.

That's why pistachios should be treated with red dye #2 before human consumption.

The petrified maggot would have come back to life and grown to the size of python, burrowed out of your stomach then swallowed you whole.

Or nothing.

So, 50-50 change of a horrible death.

oryx: What are the chances that she put the maggot there herself? Given all the drama, I'd say good.


It's not uncommon. A year or so ago a local news station ran a story about a woman who supposedly found a grasshopper in her bag of frozen spinach. She claimed she cooked the spinach with scrambled eggs before she noticed the bug. It was completely intact, which means it got into the spinach, went through industrial machines that chopped up the spinach, got cooked, crammed into a bag, then flash frozen, then heated again in the woman's kitchen, then mixed vigorously in with the eggs in a hot skillet, and somehow managed to be perfectly preserved with all its legs, antennae, etc.

Of course, the idiot reporter was so busy being grossed out by "zomg there's a bug in her food!" that she failed to even consider the almost 100% certainty that the woman planted the damn thing in there herself.

Not saying she planted it, just saying people do it.

My main reaction was...

Is it really a maggot, i.e. a fly larva, or is it a beetle larva? Acorns in my area are infested by silly looking weevils with long noses. Flies infest, for example, husks of walnuts but not the meat.

Judging by that pudgy face, I'd say they did her a favor.  She doesn't look like she needs more chocolate eggs.

So, is this a rich city dweller thing?

As a poor guy in fly over country who has worked in food processing, I can't believe this much drama. I assume people think food comes from some magical hydroponic antiseptic green house in a 5000 square mile desert where nothing lives.

TFA is reporting the incident as having occurred in Sale, Manchester, England.  Nothing to do with Americans here.  In this particular instance anyway.

I've always said we should turn North Dakota into a giant greenhouse. What else is it good for, anyways?
