Man Finds Shrimp Tails In His Cereal, Cinnamon Toast Crunch Assure Him It’s Just ‘Sugar’

What the hell?

In one of the most absurd cereal-based stories since a Labour MP claimed Coco Pops were racist, a man has called out the makers of Cinnamon Toast Crunch on Twitter after finding what appear to be ‘shrimp tails’ in his cereal box.

US writer and comedian Jensen Karp initially posted this Tweet:

The Tweet went mega viral and CTC were quick to respond:

Now I think we can all agree those definitely look like shrimp tails amongs the delicious pieces of Cinnamon Toast Crunch in Jensen’s photo, but CTC had another explanation:

Um, that’s possible, I guess? Unfortunately for CTC a bunch of shrimp chefs/experts then turned up in the comments saying that the brand is full of crap and that those are definitely shrimp tails:

As if things couldn’t get any worse, Jensen emptied the rest of the box’s contents and found more shrimp tails, amongst other things:

What a disaster. It only got more painful from there as Jensen shared a screenshot of his DMs with the brand:

Deary me, what a disaster. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how this plays out. Are those really shrimp tails (as they appear to be) or an accumulation of sugar as insisted by the people at Cinnamon Toast Crunch? If it’s the former, how do shrimp tails even find their way into a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch? Was the production line worker enjoying some shrimp on the clock? Those production lines do move very fast to be fair, so who knows what can happen when you’re not being careful.

At the end of the day though, you’re probably doing pretty well as a company when only 1 out of the hundreds of millions of boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch you have ever released have shrimp tails in them. That’s not a bad ratio at all, all things considered. Maybe they should have just owned up to it instead of trying to gaslight old Jensen here. As they say – shit happens. Might’ve been better off accusing Jensen of putting them in there himself.
