I think Maria still has me and everyone else beat for the most disgusting story ever reported on Mommyish award, even though this one comes pretty close, but because I know you guys love you some gross stories I have to share this one with you. A mom in Howell Township did what so many of us moms do when she gave her 18-month-old a juice pouch to drink, she sucked some of it down first. Show of hands! Who has done this? Of course we all have because we all know the second a kid squeezes the pouch, juice flies everywhere and even though us moms live to clean up sticky messes all over we are proactive with juice boxes. At one point I even bought some of those juice box cases to insure my kids didn’t squeeze them. But when the mom took a few sips from her kid’s juice box she felt something come up through the straw and it was so not juice. From Livingston Daily:
Emmie Field usually takes the first sips of her son Carterâ€™s Capri Sun drink because at 18 months, he has a tendency to spill it when itâ€™s full.
Sheâ€™s never been more glad about that than Sunday, when she sucked up what appears to be a white worm through the thin yellow straw.
â€śI spit it out in the sink,â€ť she said. â€śThere wasnâ€™t enough mouthwash in the world to get the feeling out of my mouth.â€ť
The Howell Township woman said when she called the company, representatives tried to pass off the worm as mold, but she said, â€śMold doesnâ€™t have a head like this or wiggle.â€ť
Like mold is any better! Ugh. I love how they argued this with her. I think most people can sort of tell the difference between a worm and mold. And looking at this video, this is a pretty active little worm.
Laboratory officials contracted by Kraft Foods are set to visit Fieldâ€™s home today to test the worm, which she said is still moving in a sealed plastic bag.
Guess who has a bunch of Capri Sun juice pouches in her pantry all ready for back to school time? This mom! I’m sure if this worm is actually a worm, and ya know, it sure does look like a damn worm to me, it was an isolated incident but my days of taking a sip out of my kid’s juice box or pouch are long over.
