Question of the Day (Redux)

(There were so many good answers to this I thought I would put it at the top for some Monday morning reading. You may want to eat breakfast first.)

What’s the grossest thing you’ve ever accidentally eaten?

I once made some hot chocolate that comes in those envelopes. I wasn’t really paying attention and poured the boiling water in it, stirred, and then took a sip when it had cooled off a bit. The little marshmallows had sort of a weird consistency and it took me a second to realize that I don’t drink hot chocolate with marshmallows. I looked into the cup and saw dead maggots floating in my cocoa. And yes, my fear of powdered cocoa persists to this day.

Ok Cynics, open up and share. Best story gets an envelope of Swiss Miss hot chocolate with marshmallows.
