A schoolgirl was shocked when she tried to eat a jellybean – and saw a spider was trapped inside.
Jasmine Reed, from Darlington, County Durham, had bought a pack of Rowntree’s Randoms from her local Sainsbury’s.
The student at Corporation Road Primary School went to eat the candy and spotted the eight-legged creature just as she was about to put it in her mouth.
Her brother Ryan Reed, who was home at the time, said: “We couldn’t believe it.
“She ran in and said there’s a spider in my cutie and Dad said there’s no way it can be.
“I told her not to be silly, but then we looked at it and it is.
“How did it get in there? She couldn’t believe it. She started spitting out the candy.”
He said his sister was put off by the candy and didn’t eat the rest of the pack after finding the arachnid.
The family contacted Nestlé, the maker of Rowntree’s Randoms, to lodge a complaint and said they would return the package to the company.
Nestlé apologized to Jasmine and said it would investigate.
A company spokesman said: “The health and safety of our consumers is a top priority at Nestlé.
“We take great care to ensure we manufacture our products to the highest standards of quality and safety, and employ strict procedures in all our operations.
“We are very sorry to hear about consumer experiences with this product.
“We asked the consumer to send us the product so we can conduct a full investigation.”
