LIVE WORMS in my chocolate bar!!
Posted by on
SOUTH, FLORIDA -- I recently purchased a CADBURY FRUIT & NUT CHOCOLATE BAR and was watching TV and eating it when something seemed unusual... I put my glasses on and was horrified to see LIVE WORMS in my partially eaten Candy Bar! (spent the rest of the evening heaving every time I thought about it, and thoroughly inspect everything before I reluctantly eat now).

For those who may not believe this, I do have photos. I took the candy bar and receipt to CVS where it was only purchased the prior day, they apologized and offered a $10 gift certificate. I refused as I merely wanted them to ensure this didn't happen again.

I wrote Cadbury in Europe who told me to contact HERSHEYS in the U.S., I felt like they were brushing it under the rug and tried to pacify me by sending a letter and a check for $50 (haven't cashed it).

They also tried to comfort me by stating they checked with the medical community and that the worms would die in the digestive process. I have the remainder of the candy bar WORMS INCLUDED in my freezer (proof) and have contacted the local newspaper ... I've checked with other local stores that carry the product, they claimed that no Hersheys reps. have contacted them warning them or requesting they check their products for contamination.

PS: For those of you who ask why legal action wasn't taken... it's because they say they cannot prove any physical damage was done and will not pursue the issue.

SO, MY WORD OF ADVISE TO ALL YOU CHOCOLATE LOVERS IS LIKE THE OLD SAYING "LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP" but "LOOK BEFORE YOU EAT".

I'm writing this letter because I feel like the entire situation was minimized by all parties involved.

Didn't you post this same complaint about worms in your candy bar a couple of weeks ago?

If so, why have you reposted it again?

If not, then you aren't the only person who has purchased a candy bar with worms in it!!!
Skye on 02/17/2007:
Here is another complaint regarding the same issue. YUCK :P

Same type of complaint, different part of the country.

Live worms? Chocolate mixture is made at a very high temperature, therefore causing death to any living thing "swimming" in it. If it was alive, it must have come from your own home. If it was dead, then your story would have more credibility.
Kimber915 on 02/17/2007:
I was searching to see if anyone else has found LIVE worms in their Chocolate.... sure enough, check out this link and you can see the worms live and in action... http://www.ifilm.com/video/2695129
Kimber915 on 02/17/2007:
FARTMAN: This is my first post on this site, I found the site this evening when doing a google to see if anyone else had this disgusting experience.

Because of Hersheys lack of concern (IMO), I was not surprised to see how many incidences there were.

DEALCO: If you read my post correctly you would have noticed the incident happened within a day of purchase (receipt retained).... I do not have superworms in my home that infest candybars overnight.

I read something similar to this before. The pictures were fuzzy; use your imagination; nothing solid. So at best, why not take this up with the health department and aire it on the news? So You were victumized, you going to wait around for someone like me to be victumized too just so I'll be here to confirm your story? Thanks a lot!

Yeeeck, this meat in my sandwich smells terrible, smell this meat Kid7, see if it smells terrible to you?.
Shakra on 02/17/2007:
Again, it isn't the chocolate, but the nuts that get worms in them. It happens after a chocolate bar is past its sell by date. We used to have this problem when I was working at a cinema.
DebtorBasher on 02/17/2007:
I do believe you, it's not the first time it's happened. I would suggest you post the picture on your blog it will help people remember before they buy and because a picture is worth a thousand words and it's very easy to post the pic on your blog.
Skye on 02/17/2007:
Please post the picture here, as DB suggests. I remember when I was a little girl, my grandmother was cracking open walnuts, and there was a live worm in it. But still, to have one in your candy bar is a big turnoff.
Ponie on 02/17/2007:
'...the entire situation was minimized by all parties involved...' But it wouldn't have been 'minimized' had a few more zeroes been tacked on to the certificate issued by CVS and the check from Cadbury, right?

That's nothing, someone went to this restaurant they ordered a burger. They took one bite, and a small mouse came out of the burger scared because I think they bit it's tail. This did not happen until they were taking a second bite and the rat touched her lips before scurrying off. The customer thought that she noticed something crunchy in her sandwich, but did because this was her first time at the restaurant so she thought it was supposed to be crunchy. She opened up the sandwich and she found a half eaten rat.(she had not eaten the rat but the mice like to eat other mice). In the sandwich she could see it's the rat's eyes had been eaten out of the face and they ate down to the rat's intestine. There was rat droppings on the bun when she opened it up. When she saw this she threw up and saw rat droppings and mice fur in her barf.
DORCAS on 02/18/2007:
You should take the $10.00 from CVS and the $50.00 from Hershey's and go by some good See's candy.
I won't ever eat figs anymore because I had bought a plactic/sealed tub of them to make a dessert. When I opened the container the lid was full of moths. Dead and alive. BLECH! I still get grossed out just seeing figs.

Noneill on 02/18/2007:
I am having lots of doubt here. Live worms and the wrapper was not noticeable compromised? As someone stated the worms could not have arrived through the process of production. They could not survive the heat/time etc. so they had to arrive after production. How did they get into the wrapper?


And we are still waiting for the picture to show up.
Kimber915 on 02/18/2007:
Pardon my computer illiteracy but I'm new to this site and don't know how to post photos on here but would be happy to email it to you.
For those who are doubtful and feel I have not properly informed people, that couldn't be farther from the truth as I not only have taken the time to contact all companies involved but also reported it to the FDA, USDA and a couple of other agencies... and went as far as subjecting myself to your ridicule by posting the information on here.

If you would like to see what it looked like, PLEASE CHECK OUT THIS LINK/VIDEO that I found:
HTTP://WWW.IFILM.COM/VIDEO/2695129

This is exactly what it looked like... but worse! (the video is shot by a producer who unfortunately had the same disgusting experience but is 100% better with a camera.. happened to be the same candy bar, purchased at the same chain of stores at a different time and location)

Best wishes to all and "CAVEAT EMPTOR"

(PS: Hersheys stated that the worms would have been killed in the heat of the manufacturing process but must have obtained them in the distribution process/possibly having been stored near pet food etc. Since this has occurred at more than one CVS location then maybe they are responsible, I have no idea.. nor do I know how they managed to get within the wrapped foil).

Anonymous on 02/18/2007:
kid 7 - Did it make you sick also. :D
Kimber915 on 02/18/2007:
Yes Ghostbuster, it most definitely did... I'm sure right now it's more psychologically rather than physically.
Even though Hersheys stated in their letter that the worms cannot survive in the digestive system, It's a fact that there are worms and parasite infestations in peoples bodies as documented by the medical community.
Needless to say, I am thoroughly and suspiciously inspecting anything I eat now and have had some rather disturbing dreams since. (lol.. not a "Fear Factor" type of gal by any means)

I've been trying to post the photo as a GIF and JPG but it keeps refusing it.
JessWags on 02/24/2007:
This just happened to me last night!!!! I'm from NY and I am sooo grossed out and upset by this, please tell me if you get anywhere . I am calling the Food and Drug administration on Monday. My little friends are in the freezer too! Everyone is saying its when chocolate is old but there is no "sell by" date on the Cadbury wrapper. How is the consumer supposed to know if its old? The chocolate looked fine, it was not white like when chocolate is old. I believe it is from improper storage not that it was old.
JessWags on 02/24/2007:
To Noneill: Comment dated from 2/18
As far as your doubts are concerned, I too have pictures of the worms. The wrapper was not compromised, I still have that too! The top of the candy bar was not damaged at all, it was the underneath so it was not noticeable when I ate some. Only when I went ot break another piece off, and got to the part where the worms were did I feel the crumpled chocolate with my fingers on the underneath, then upon a closer look, did I see it was freakin moving! I'd be glad to send it to you and you can taste a bit yourself. Why would anyone make this up? I'm a little past the "let's gross people out" stage in my life and I'm sure Kimer915 is as well. I have no idea how they got there, again the paper wasn't damaged. The worms are small like an inch worm if you remember them, but white not green. I'm going to try to post a pic from my Photobucket account. Hopefully that works. See below:

SassCat76 on 12/04/2008:
I also found worms in the same type of candy bar. It is beyond disgusting. The store manager told me that worms are most often found in Cadbury Fruit & Nut bars and those Ferrere Roche (however you spell it). It was not the store's fault, or at least, the chocolate had not expired. India had a massive problem with worms in Cadbury chocolate. If you had this problem, please contact me to discuss legal action.
RL on 12/26/2013:
I saw worms in my see's candy box all wrapped up as well, it was alive and wiggling... must be indian moth or larvae that hatched after chocolate has expired...
grossedoutgalca on 01/07/2014:
All you doubters just better beware because this is TRUE. I BOUGHT 3 of the giant sized Hershey candy bars at CVS and two of them contained live worms. I did not notice them until I had eaten half the candy bar. I gathered up the other two from my family members and checked them they were in the SYMPHONY candy bars but not the Hershey w/almonds. I took them all back to the store in a zip lock bag and the manager offered us a dinner anywhere we wanted to go he said. EWWWWW like I could eat dinner. I notified Hershey and they e-mailed me back stating how sorry they were and a few days later I got free coupons in the mail for more chocolate. They do not give a DAMN if somebody eats worms in their chocolate.

Never delivered order, poor customer service
Posted by on
HERSHEY, PENNSYLVANIA -- I placed an order for a corporate gift to one of my best clients, on 12/09/04. I requested a delivery date of 12/21/04 so that it would arrive in plenty of time for their company Christmas party on 12/22. When I called my client during their party on 12/22, I was very dismayed to find that there was no delivery from Hershey.
I then placed a call to their customer service line to inquire about my order.

I found that not only was the delivery not made on 12/21, it still had not shipped! I was told that it would go out today for delivery tomorrow 12/23. That's great, except for the fact
that they are closed for Christmas tomorrow and Friday! According to the Hershey website, I could have placed this order on 12/18, and still have had the requested delivery date met. Obviously, this new delivery date was not acceptable.

I guess my biggest surprise was the atitude of the "customer service?" personnel. There was no offer to do anything to correct their screw-up. They could have offered to deliver the item after the holidays with a note about their error, or something! There was never an offer of any kind to do anything other than to say "we're sorry, we've been real busy."
Translated- "Hey buddy, we're Hershey". We don't have to do anything that resembles customer service, we're too big for that".

In closing, I would suggest that you not order anything from Hershey's gifts that requires it to be there at any specific time. I placed this order two weeks in advance, and it was only going across the state of PA to my client in the Phila. area. It is clear from my experience that they will indeed make mistakes, as do all people sometimes, but they will make absolutely no effort to make anything right for the customer, once the mistake has been made. Needless to say, this is my last order to them.

Maggots in Snickers
Posted by on
DEPTFORD, NEW JERSEY -- 8 years ago I ate a bite size snickers. I let it melt in my mouth (that's how I enjoyed eating them) and tasted peanut butter... something you don't taste when eating a snickers. I looked in the wrapper and saw several small maggot worms crawling around.

Needless to say I've been traumatized ever since and I don't recommend Hershey products.

That's true John! They are allowed a certain percentage of insect parts in the chocolate too. As far as I know, nothing states that the allowed percentage can't be contained in one single wrapper. It's the chocolate lottery, and this poster won!

Maggots only eat dead and decaying matter. Sterile maggots are used in burn centers because they eat the dead flesh and leave the healthy flesh. I can't imagine why there would be maggots in a candy bar, since candy, last time I checkd was not dead, decaying flesh. As was pointed out by someone, Snickers bars are a Mars product, and you could be sued for libel by Hershey's.
Dustin on 05/12/2013:
I know someone who sued snickers and won 2 million dollars over a maggot in his snickers bar. Save the wrapper, receipt and go see a good lawyer who will take 50% of the earnings and sue them!

Worms In Hershey Kisses

My wife buys Hershey Kisses all the time & keeps them in bowls for her grand children. Last night she ate one that she had bought two days earlier and found a worm in it. She was up all night wrenching and throwing up.

She has vowed to never ever but Hershey chocolate products again !!!

old fart on 02/11/2008:
This is not so unusual... those may be cocoa moth larva or warehouse moth larva, all related to other food infesting moths and should be brought to the attention of the company where you bought them.. It is either a problem with improper rotation or storage of the product and can only be resolved by isolating and destroying the infested product.. The place where you bought them should refund your money or replace the product with new, non- contaminated product..
old fart on 02/12/2008:
There is no form of pest control other than fumigation of the product, the storage facility or the use of pheremone traps in either the place of manufacture, storage or sale that will resolve this type of problem.

Tried the Reese's whipped yet?
Posted by on
I've tried it and it's fantastic. It's not as heavy as the Reese's cup but it still has that wonderful flavor. I don't, however, know where they got the statistic about 40% less fat. 40% Less fat than what? The whipped version and the original version both have 230 calories, and the three musketeers has less calories, although not much.

They've got to be completely terrible for you which is probably why they taste so good.

Starlord on 01/18/2008:
Om the nutritional labels, you have to look at more than just the calories. The labels give you the amount of fat, and often a couple of types of fat. That is probably where they got the statistic of 40% less fat. When you are a diabetic, you learn to read nutritional labels and that means more than just calories.
Principissa on 01/19/2008:
I'm with emt, I tried it and only managed a couple bites before I tossed it. It didn't taste like peanut butter at all. It had a slight hint of peanut taste but nothing more. I'll stick to good old peanut butter cups and Reese's Pieces.

I tried it because I love creamy peanut butter. I liked it but didn't love it. I love Reese's cups and pieces!! Calories schmalories, I eat them because the PB. Although I like the pieces more, since I can portion control them instead of the cups.

Worms in my chocolate
Posted by on
MASSAPEQUA, NEW YORK -- Last night I was disturbed to say the least, to find worms in my half eaten candy bar from cadbury that I had just bought earlier in the day. The worms are very small, like inch worms but white not green and they are LIVE! I have the rest if the bar in my freezer and I am calling the FDA Monday. I came across this site when I searched to see if anyone else had experienced this and was sickened to find out many have!

People are saying the chocolate must have been old, well then cadbury should have to put a sell-by date on the package and there is none. The paper packaging was not compromised, the chocolate was not white and old looking,it was fine. I believe this was improper storage by either the manufacturer or Duane Reade where I bought it. Either way, the consumer should NEVER have to be sicked by this. Poison control told me, no big deal, the worms will die in the digestive track but what about how upsetting this is? I haven't been able to eat since and it will be a long time before I am able to eat chocolate again! I have pics, I don't know how to post them but If anyone does, please tell me. Buyer beware, stay away from cadbury chocolate. oh and by the way, Hershey's owns Cadbury! Keep away from them for Easter or open each chocolate before letting your kids eat any!

Actually Hershey's and Cadbury's are both owned by Nestle.

The worm problem seems to have started with Cadbury's in India. Then it spread to South Africa and then to Australia. The 'official' explanation in South Africa was improper storage on store shelves. Looks like the worms originate from nuts imported from India.

http://www.rushprnews.com/Video-Tape-Ignites-FDA-Investigation-of-Cadbury-Chocolates.press-release-02182006.html

My husband wanted to buy one the other day, and I freaked out and told him no more Cadburys due to this outbreak of worms. So he ended up getting a milk chocolate Symphony bar. Also, he noticed that the Cadbury bars are smaller than usual. Maybe because they are being eaten from the inside out?

It's ashame to think how many Cadburys' will be sold at Easter time to little kids who would not even notice worms...Hopefully the Easter Bunny is a M3Cer and will be aware of this!!!!
Noneill on 02/25/2007:
This sounds too much like another complaint of the same nature. I agree with Mr mafia.
JessWags on 02/25/2007:
OK, I added 2 pics to my blog for you to see. Check them out, thanks Sparticus for telling me how. Seems there's a lot of haters out there who think I have nothing better to do that lie about this..And to be clear, No I never worked at Cadbury or Hershey, No I never knew anyone who worked there, no I never worked at Duane Reade or knew anyone at Duane Reade. Perhaps the reason why my story and the other posts on this site are similar is cause they're all true and that's what really happened ot each of us. But again, If you don't want to believe, don't, enjoy your worm candy!

I have not contacted Hersheys or Cadbury yet because the past blogger who did, said they offered her a $50 check and what would I want with that? to buy more candy? Please! I notified Duane Reade in Massapequa about it so they'd pull the rest of the shelves and I am calling the FDA tomorrow.

Well those look like nuts to me and to be honest, the chocolate bar in the wrapper looks different than that one outside, it looks like the one outside was scracthed with something. The one in the wrapper does not look like it was scratched.
JessWags on 02/28/2007:
Jeez ghostbuster, do you really think I have nothing better to do? Do YOU work for Cadbury or Duane Reade? Yes, there are nuts, but the crumpled chocolate on the right side is from the worms burrowing in and out. Explain to me how you'd like me to take a picture of just a worm and post that , cause since they're frozen now, it might be a possibility. Would that make your cynical mind feel better? I don't really get what you're saying about the pieces looking "different" they are different, it was one bar, broken up and I shot the pics from different views, trying to find one without glare from the light. But again, I don't really give a damn if YOU don't believe me. Eat Cadbury, enjoy. Those of us who are concerned about this matter can take the info and do what they want with it. You can too.
JessWags on 02/28/2007:

By the way: I did contact FDA, they said they received a second complaint besides mine, for a purchase made at the same store, the same weekend and that person too, had worms . And if you research on line, Duane Reade was sued in New Jersey twice last year for selling expired products. I am simply trying to make the public aware that this is what happened to me and buyer beware. I choose not to shop at Duane Reade anymore. People can make up their own minds and do what they want. Ghostbuster, I hope you don't go through your entire day with such Cynicism, what a shame it would be to live life that way.

I don't work for Cadbury or Duane Reade. But I have to agree with Mr. Mafia and Noneill on this one. Were you fired from Cadbury or Daune Reade. Do you have more than one account? Are you hoping to get revenge against Cadbury or Daune Reade? Is this an honest review? Also if it was one bar, how come both pictures look like they are two different chocloate bars. You said the chocolate bar was half eaten, but one of them is not half eaten. Remember the lady that "found" the finger in her Wendy's chilly.
JessWags on 03/02/2007:
Ghostbuster: If you actually read my other posts you will see that I don't work at Cadbury or Duane Reade or Hershey. I have one account here. I told Duane Reade when they called me that I didn't want anything from them so this post is not for any reason other than to inform.
Who the hell are you to accuse me of anything? You don't know me.
JessWags on 03/02/2007:
And by the way, don't comment on MY review anymore. You're just a loser who has nothing better going on in their life than to incite people into confrontation. You commented on 228 posts according to your profile! Who does that? You have even less of a life than I thought! You were probably one of those kids who got picked last for the kickball teams in gym and now you get to hide behind you computer screen and act as if.... God, what a loser. I laugh at you, ha ha ha.
JessWags on 03/02/2007:
I'm sorry, Ghostbuster commented on 298 posts not 228! Even better.

JessWags - When you make a letter everyone has a right to comment on your letter. If you have such a low self esteem maybe you should share your letter without seeing a psychologist since it obviously offends you. Also from the pictures it is quit clear that you are not being 100 percent honest here. I bet you just printed this letter because you have time on your hands or you are holding a long time grudge against Hershey. Whatever you do if you are not mature enough to take comments don't post them. If this comment offends you why don't you go cry to your mommy and she will kiss your sorrows better. Whatever you do see a shrink. What a pathetic person you are. You have no right to accuse me of anything either. Grow up, and for the last time if you can't share your letters and accept comments maturally than well maybe unless you get serious help you should not be posting.

Jesswags - You must be really young(and not know better) to comment on and to call someone a loser just because you don't like what they have to say, also if you go into more profiles you will see way more than 300 posts. Anyway don't result to calling other poster's loser's and pathetic that shows a very mature attitude. Some people will believe you, some won't. Let them make the decision themselves.

ghostbuster - I would not say that Jesswags needs a shrink. She does however, need to learn how to communicate in a more productive way with people that do not believe her. Childish name calling will get her nowhere. If this is how she is going to act here, I would hate to see how she would behave in court proving her case. Also like someone else said these three stories are quite similar in text. Also the two of the three stories have the same situation. (I don't know how to post a picture) Although Jess did post a picture later on after she was told how to.

cobra - Are you saying that those pictures exicted before JessWags claimed to have taken the picutres, that was way before she even bought the chocolate, I find that interesting.

That is real funny, she is probably telling the truth about not working at Hershey's or Cadbury, she is probably too young to get a job anyway. I bet she is just some 9 year old lacking attention at home, and is bullied by others so she goes around getting attention from others online. Also I bet her parents call her stupid and dumb and idiot so she goes around calling people on the boards that because it makes her feel big and powerful.

I was wondering how this story would turn out, looks like the stage of people finding live worms in their chocolate bar is over.
