Writer and podcast host Jensen Karp is trying to get some answers after an unexpected surprise he had while trying to eat a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

He tweeted a photo of his bowl of cereal and wrote, “Ummmm @CTCSquares – why are there shrimp tails in my cereal? (This is not a bit).”

The cereal brand responded and wrote, “We’re sorry to see what you found! We would like to report this to our quality team and replace the box. Can you please send us a DM to collect more details? Thanks!”

CTC later sent another tweet denying that the shrimp tails were in the cereal.

They wrote, “After further investigation with our team that closely examined the image, it appears to be an accumulation of the cinnamon sugar that sometimes can occur when ingredients aren’t thoroughly blended. We assure you that there’s no possibility of cross contamination with shrimp.”

Jensen responded, saying, “Ok, we’ll after further investigation with my eyes, these are cinnamon coated SHRIMP TAILS, you weirdos. I wasn’t all that mad until you now tried to gaslight me?”

Jensen also shared a DM where they offered him vouchers for more cereal. They wrote, “Thank you Jensen. We would like to also send you some  General Mills vouchers for this unpleasant experience. If that’s okay with you we’ll send them right away.”

Many people accused Jensen of faking the story, and he shared another photo showing other pieces of cereal from the same box with black droppings in them.

As expected, Cinnamon Toast Crunch is trending on Twitter, and there are a lot opinions circling.
