Here at Consumerist, we’ve heard about practically every kind of creepy, crawly, grody thing/creature showing up where it shouldn’t, whether that means spiders in your grapes and bananas or urine in your Taco Bell nachos. But having a pair of spectacles show up in your jalapeño poppers? That could actually be useful.
Useful, perhaps, expected, definitely not. In a post on Reddit that claims “My mom found a pair of glasses in with her Jalapeno Poppers,” we see a cardboard box of poppers with a plastic bag in front of it. And look, inside the plastic, a pair of seeing eye goggles! What is the MEANING OF THIS?
There doesn’t seem to be an explanation, as the poster noted in the comments that the company didn’t seem to be perturbed: “‘Sorry, we’ll send you a coupon’ was the response from the company.”
“Better than ‘Please send them back, Susan can’t read without them,’ ” points out another astute commenter.
And hey, it’s a heck of a lot cheaper than buying prescription specs and frames and all that.
It’s worth pointing out, as of course the Reddit commenters have, that the whole photo could be a sham. Is that bag open? Couldn’t someone just slip the glasses in afterward and claim it came that way? I hope not because I prefer to believe that everything on the Internet is true.
