Can Of Planters Trail Mix Comes With Free Dried Gecko

You never know what you might get the next time you reach into a container of trail mix. Peanut…raisin…dried apricot…sunflower seed…dried gecko. AHHH!!! DRIED GECKO!

When a Minnesota woman found a dried gecko in her can of Planters trail mix, she contacted parent company Kraft. Their offer? Some coupons (good) and to put her on their promotional e-mail list (huh?).

She also contacted the FDA, which can’t take much action since the critter didn’t make anyone sick. “I think that my chances of winning the lottery are better than finding a dead gecko in my food,” the woman noted. Let’s hope so.
