Man Says He Found Shrimp Tails In Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Company Claims It’s Unblended Sugar

On Monday, comedian Jensen Karp sent the internet into a frenzy when he revealed that he found two shrimp tails inside a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. 

Karp, who is married to Boy Meets World star Danielle Fishel, tweeted his find alongside a picture of the shrimp tails, which appeared to be covered in cinnamon and sugar. He wrote: 

“Ummmm @CTCSquares – why are there shrimp tails in my cereal? (This is not a bit).”

An hour after Karp tweeted the photo, the popular breakfast cereal’s official Twitter account responded with promises to “take a close look.” Shortly after, Cinnamon Toast Crunch assured followers that the objects Karp found in his cereal were “an accumulation of cinnamon sugar.” They stated:

“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.”

It’s safe to say that Karp was less than thrilled with the Cinnamon Toast Crunch’s response. The comedian posted a closer look at the mysterious objects and revealed that he was not upset about the situation until the company “tried to gaslight” him.

Later, Karp confessed that some of his discoveries included “black things” inside the bag, and he was referred to pest control for further investigation. The comedian also stated that his original purpose was to inform the cereal company of the cross-contamination for people with shellfish allergies and kosher diets.
