Mmm Mmm Disgusting: Mom Discovers Tiny Mutant Monster Chicken In Soup

Mom Finds Chicken Embryo In SoupCampbell’s Chicken and Stars soup is basically the best. Not only is it delicious, but this soup connotes motherhood and everything we represent when fixing something easy and palatable for our sick children. Chicken soup is our jam! Plus, the stars are adorable. But do you know what isn’t so adorable? Finding some freaky item in your soup that resembles some half-formed monster mutant chicken baby, which is exactly what happened to this mom in Colorado. From ABC News:

Montgomery says she poured the single-serving can of Campbell’s Chicken and Stars soup into a bowl to heat it up for her daughter Molly. She noticed the strange lump when she took the bowl out of the microwave.

“I opened it up, and there was this spec in there — I was like, ‘What is that?’ I looked a little bit closer and I was like, ‘Oh, that looks like a dead chicken.’”


And it does! It looks exactly like a dead monster baby chickie! Behold!

The best part about this is that the mom is reacting the same exact way I would. She is all EXCITED ABOUT IT.

“It’s like a train wreck — you can’t stop looking at,” Nicole Montgomery said. “I keep looking at it and thinking, ‘How does this happen?’ I have no idea.”


It’s freaky as hell! I would be showing it to everyone who came over.

Campbell’s Soup Company issued this statement: “Campbell Soup Company takes all claims of product contamination very seriously. Whenever we receive such a claim, it is fully investigated by our Quality Assurance team to determine its possible cause. We are in the process of evaluating the claim and have not yet received the exhibit from the consumer to conduct our investigation.”

A spokeswoman said a FedEx box is en route to Montgomery’s house for the exhibit.

I make this soup all the time for my own kids when they are sick. I think I have some in my pantry right now. I hope this is just some deformed noodle and not an actual monster mutant baby chicken because I love this soup.

I have found some weird things in my food over the years. I once found a piece of plastic in my yogurt and the company sent me some free coupons, whee. Once my husband I were eating out and he found a  big metal staple in his salad and the restaurant owner told him this was normal. They didn’t even give us free dessert. I have to admit, I’m going to be following this one to see exactly what this thing is in this soup because I need to know these things. In the meantime, I’ll probably be giving all my canned soup the crook eye when I open it.

    I don’t see what the big deal is. She bought chicken soup and it may have had more chicken in it than expected…it’s a bonus buy. ;)

    • Eve Vawter

      That’s some good ‘eaten right thaar

    • Kay_Sue

      Maybe add a little tobasco.

      A little extra protein never hurt anybody :)

  • pixie

    Huh, that does look odd. Though I’m also the type of person who sees an odd shaped vegetable, like celery or carrot in her soup and goes “OMG! WHAT IS THAT?! Oh, it’s just celery”

    Though if you google chicken fetus or chicken embryo like I did, it doesn’t really look like any of the pictures I saw. So who knows!

    • Eve Vawter

      It looks like a chicken embryo to me, and thanks to you I actually google image searched

    • pixie

      Maybe we saw different images!

      Some of them look kinda similar, and some of them look way different. Some of them just look really freaky in a “I want to poke it” way.

    • Eve Vawter

      why you always wanna poke the creepy things?!

    • pixie

      Bored and it’s something to do. :D

    • Williwaw

      And I want them to poke me back.

    • Williwaw

      It’s not a chicken fetus, it’s a space alien fetus. When you eat it, you will gestate the first alien-human hybrid.

    • Eve Vawter

      They need to start charing a lot more than $1.79 for this shiz

      LOok at the FEETS. My have part of this whole story is discussing exactly WHAT that thing is haha

    • Elizabeth Licata

      I’m not sure about the scale, but given the tiny size, I feel like it looks like a tiny, smooshed star noodle with some herbs stuck to it. Are there herbs in Chicken and Stars? There may not be. I don’t know how soup works.

  • keelhaulrose

    Sanctimommy says: that’s what you get for buying that high sodium crap in a can!

  • Aimee Ogden

    This reminds me of when we lived in the country and got farm-fresh free-range eggs (you seriously drove out to the farm, put money in a glass milk bottle, and took eggs out of a refrigerator standing alone under a lean-to, it was amazing). The eggs were great, you just had to run the risk of the occasional chicken fetus dropping into your frying pan!

  • Bethany Ramos

    Now I just want to die and never eat soup again.

  • Theresa Edwards

    Once I bought methi at an indian grocery store, and when I opened it? Beetles. Beetles everywhere.

    • Williwaw

      Ew. I like bugs. Except when they invade my personal space (i.e. my food or my clothing).

    • jane

      Or my house. Or my state.

    I waitressed in a restaurant and I once had a complaint from a customer saying they had a hair in their chicken. I took the plate and showed the Greek cook what happened and he dismissed me by saying “No, no, is chicken hair”. Seriously? You want me to tell the customer it’s a chicken hair? Awkward!

    • Valerie

      When I worked retail in college I got Chinese from the food court one night and found a big long hair in it. I was totally disgusted so I brought it back and asked for a refund. The guy at the counter opened it up, took out the hair with his bare hands (PUKE) and goes “That’s not Chinese hair! That YOUR hair!” and he refused to refund it! I got some Taco Bell and called it a night.

    Several years ago, I was heating up a Lean Cuisine. It was the butternut squash ravioli and one of the ones you had to stir and then heat for a few more minutes. During the stiring, I noticed something lumpy underneath one of the raviolis. Turns out to be a fucking cicada bug. I almost threw up. The thing was completely intact. I called Lean Cuisine’s customer service number and they basically said “oh well, sorry about that” and sent me coupons for more Lean Cuisines. Because that is exactly what I was hoping for. I have never eaten one since. I can still see that crunchy little fucker in my mind.

      They taste like nutty asparagus, by the way.

      You can buy cicada ice cream where I live. A local ice cream parlor (which is known for it’s crazy flavors-and deliciousness) sells it occassionally in the summer.

      Just to say they did it? They also make biscuits and gravy, bbq, and all sorts of other strange things. The King (banana,peanut butter, honey-get it?) is the best but not one of the regular flavors.

    • Natasha B

      Is there a projectile vomit gif someone can throw in here….

    • Guest

      Same thing happened when my husband ate several bites of a Butterfinger to find bugs inside. “We can send you a coupon for a new Butterfinger”. Dude still can’t eat Butterfingers to this day. Depressing.

    You see a quality-control issue, I see “free thinking”.

    C’mon. We’ve been eating the FDA’s recommendations since 1906.

    And how many superheroes have we made? Exactly ZERO.

    Why are you soft on crime?

  • Frannie

    Once I found broken glass in a box of store brand rice crispies. I’d rather eat glass than whatever the hell that is!

  • Tea

    Spouse-guy’s parents had chickens by the dozens, and evidently, one of his sisters didn’t check the eggs before hand (Crack it into a glass, then dump into the bowl, one at a time.) and Bam, chicken fetus in the cookie dough.

    • Shea

      Yep, I had chickens when I was a kid. Been there (except I was making a fried egg. Definitely turned me off my breakfast that day).

  • Rachel Sea

    Finding weird shit in my food is my super power. Foil, plastic, hair, insects…the weirdest was a square of cardboard inside a piece of ravioli at Olive Garden. About once every 10th time I eat out I end up getting dinner or a desert comped.

  • Courtney Lynn

    LOL…weird! I was going to say I wanted to see the pic!

    Projectile vomit everywhere.

  • THE Frugal Foodie

    Bless that poor uneducated woman’s heart. If she had only taken basic high school biology or visited a county fair, she would have seen there is no way that is a tiny chicken with legs and a beak formed at that size! She should stick to looking for images of Elvis or Jesus in potato chips or toast!

    When I was 13 or 14 my Mum bought a jar of peanut butter that had a huge lump of hair in it, It was so disgusting.

    Kraft sent us a whole lot of free peanut butter, but I have to admit, I buy a different brand now because every time I see Kraft peanut butter on the supermarket shelves I gag.
