There are few things better in life than biting into a tasty bit of food. Sadly, there are few things worse than biting into food and finding something you didn’t expect to be there.
The Swastika Sandwich
This is a bit of a strange story that has been in the news lately. A lady from North Carolina bought a chicken sandwich from McDonalds. Bizarrely, she found a swastika symbol on the bun. Hang on a second; I’m not generally in the habit of opening my sandwiches to see the potentially provocative designs on the interior of the bun but maybe I should start doing so. Do other people already do this? In fact, after seeing the rest of the strange stuff found in food we will probably all start doing that from now on.
The Glove Loaf
If there’s one thing you don’t expect to find in a loaf of bread it is, well, an oven glove baked into it. Yet, this is exactly what a lady from Northern Ireland discovered one weird day. The shredded glove was spread throughout the loaf and looks rather horrible if we are being honest.
The Wire Brush Sandwich
When a young chap from England unexpectedly found a wire brush in his chicken sandwich the staff apparently just laughed and offered him an exchange. It isn’t clear whether this meant a new chicken sandwich or a different type of cleaning implement.
The Frog and Vegetables Mix
When you rip open a bag of frozen vegetable there is usually very little to get excited about. Sure, there will be frozen peas, rock solid carrots and other vegetables that have been, frankly, frozen. However, what if a frozen amphibian popped out as well? Sure, that would be fun and would add a frisson of excitement to your day. The lucky old Hoffman family got a frog-based treat like this one day.
The Knife Sandwich
You’re kind of used to all those vaguely annoying questions in Subway by now, aren’t you? Do you want cheese? What kind of cheese do you want? Would you like a weird sauce with it? Now it seems as though they need to ask what kind of knife you want in there too. Do you want a bread knife, a cleaver or a dagger with that? This guy went for the 6 inch serrated option. Nice choice.
The Chicken Head
You have probably already heard about this one but I included it anyway, because that’s the kind of thing I do just to annoy you. In this case, the weird aspect is that it is the only of the strange things found in food on this list that shouldn’t be revolting, yet it is the most famous. Let’s face it; if you ate the rest of old Foghorn Leghorn you might as well scoff his freaking head as well.
The Screw Cornbread
I’m going to come right out here and brazenly admit that I have no idea what a jalapeno cornbread is meant to taste like. Hot, I guess. Kind of cornbready too, if my instincts haven’t failed me. However, one thing I can guarantee you is that it isn’t really meant to have a screw in it. Yet, this woman went to a restaurant chain called Luby’s and that is what she got. At first, she thought it was a really tough bit of jalapeno.
