My school lunch today had maggots in the applesauce
By - Competitive-Ear-6443
Oh my god that is disgusting
Edit: One word was worthy of 4k upvotes and 4 awards. This site confuses me greatly.
maggots are basically a kid insect and its moving inside OP's applesauce
Edit: people have been saying that I answered what instead of where but I said its in the OP's applesauce
I'm pretty sure he was referencing a meme
oops I'm dumb
nah it was a kinda dumb joke
The whole thread is true.
This is true
You are NOT dumb for not knowing a meme. Quite the opposite.
There is such a thing as knowing too many memes, and thus there is a scale of good to bad memes.
In the apple sauce
Yeah but which one there are so many!
I dont think apple sauce is supposed to be blue... never seen blue apples, have you?
That blue shit is supposed to be apple sauce?
Keep It and show your parents.
Yo tell your parents to call the local news. They'll air this same day and set a fire about it.
Seriously though. Him sending this video is a virtual guarantee of better food going forward
Isn’t the food currently free?
Edit: Meant that sending this video to local news to guarantee better food didn’t seem likely, since the food is free…Of course anything would be better than this, unless you’re a lizard or bird.
Edit: And have learned that not all schools are utilizing the USDA free lunch program, so some families are still having to pay. Am not certain as to why that is, possibly political influence depending on the state, or other reasons. Maybe the school is pocketing the money and utilizing the program? Not sure.
Edit: Lastly, I totally agree this is unacceptable any way it plays out. Whether it was negligence at the source, the school, or as a prank. There just isn’t enough info to immediately place blame on someone without it being looked into first. I apologize if my comment was misconstrued.
Free food should still be edible.
Edit: especially when our tax dollars pay for schools to provide lunch.
Not just edible, but for a *school* lunch it should be high quality and nutritional.
It's worth paying for because it will ultimately improve someone's education, and we're talking about the future of a country really, having well educated citizens VS ignorant ones. Giving kids good food means they're going to be sharper and more alert at school, they'll do better, they'll get better jobs and ultimately the economy will get better because your people will be able to compete with economies from other countries.
That's why I think it's stupid that people whine about 'i don't wanna pay for other people', because things like this pay for themselves in the long run. Same with healthcare, and a bunch of other stuff. Besides that it's just sad that children still go hungry in this country, especially when it's something that's very easy to solve.
It’s extra nutritional now
Maggots have high protein content👍
Is school lunch ever free?
Just in California, sorry.
Edit: Glad it’s free (for kids) in all states. Couldnt remember if it was statewide or nationwide.
and 49 other states, sorry
If you consider a cheese sandwich a meal, idk about the other states but in Illinois all they would give the kids who couldn’t pay for lunch was 2 slices of white bread and a single slice of American cheese and some milk
Midstate NY Here, went through like 4 years of high school without free lunches. Can say that the crap I'm paying for at college is little improvement though.
school district will call the FBI in for harassment
To hide the maggots
I don't think it's working all that well
a lot of schools make it blueberry apple sauce for whatever reason
I mean that sounds good but even without maggots that apple sauce looks nasty. Just give em regular or cinnamon...
Where else are they supposed to learn their colors? On the job?
My school has blue applesauce, it’s a blue raspberry flavor, it actually goes pretty hard. I don’t know about the maggots however…
# u/Mkiaolyy is some sorta porn bot person.
Every day they create a new account and spam their shitty porn sub on any post they can force it into.
**Do what you will with this info.**
Correct. The comment was edited to include the link because it started getting a lot of traction. The bots do this so they don't risk getting caught every time, just when it's worth it. The part where it says "edit nsfw maybe" is to make the edit look less suspicious.
The subreddit linked is a setup controlled by the scammers. If you do visit it, don't click any links you find in comments there. They lead to the scammers' websites. **There is no porn game, it's stolen rule 34 animations used as bait. The reviews are all from bots too.**
[You can report these accounts to the site admins here.](https://www.reddit.com/report) It's pretty easy to find which ones by viewing the subreddit.
To read about this scam and many others, check the pinned guide on my profile. The shit they're trying to get away with on reddit these days is wild.
I wouldn't keep it, just show the video..
eat it to show dominance to the school
Protein, after all
“Bodybuilders HATE this one easy hack to become buff in just 5 steps”
Mmm yum yum
show it AND keep it
Show and tell it, maybe.
Go tell it on the mountain..
Show it and keep it and eat it.. on video.. and post on reddit
Tell the lunch lady (or dude). They probably have no idea and it means they need to throw out product. Going to them directly lets them know they need to go through their inventory to check for other problems and possibly change suppliers. The sooner they know, the sooner it can get fixed.
Not saying don't tell your parents or the media, but if you do that there's a good chance the school will just fire people and call the problem fixed. What's worse is the people they fire may have nothing to actually do with the problem.
Also it’s not like the lunch crew at the school is packaging and sealing the individual cups. This is on the supplier way more than its on the school
Honestly, it was probably a single damaged box that damaged the container.
Maggots don't magically grow in food unless a fly can land inside it and lay eggs. There is clearly a fly problem at the manufacturer.
Or, a fly problem wherever this half-eaten dessert has been discarded for the last few days. The fact it's half eaten makes me suspicious.
Is it half eaten or just filled 50% because many packets like that don't come full.
I work with food and you always have to be checking shit all along the way. You can never not check shit when working in the food industry. Quality control baby.
Show and tell
Applesauce??? Thats fking blue!!!! This murican???
As a murican, idk what type of applesauce this is
Report that shit, it has to be a violation of some law, probably from the FDA or something
It looks like a sealed container out of a factory somewhere. It probably just got a puncture that a fly took advantage of.
Fucking hate flys little fuckers dont do anything but fucking be annoying
Horseflys will constantly attack you.
And those fuckers bite too, and it hurts 10x more than a mosquito
And the bump it leaves on your head is like 10x bigger, as well. Horseflies suck.
Went on a float trip and couldn't go 5 mins without having to jump underwater cause a horse fly was swarming me
fun fact: a mosquito uses your blood to make its eggs. making you 1/3 their father.
what do we gather from this?
that I have killed my children in 2 ways
Flies are just an annoyance. Mosquitos have been the leading killer of humans since forever. I’d say one of them is at least a little worse than the other.
At least mosquitoes have a reason for being annoying
no use. you’ll get faster results by joining the FDA.
Hello, old person here passing through from /r/all. Do not report something like this this to the cafeteria or school staff; don't give them a chance to bury this. Tell your parents or the local news or both. Noise should rightfully so be made about this.
why is apple sauce blue...?
It's blue raspberry flavor applesauce. My school has it and I've never had it.
WHY CALL IT APPLE SAUCE IF ITS BLUE RASPBERRY FLAVOUR???
it probably has both apple and raspberry flavours in it
edit: gosh why can’t you all read the other comments that says it is blue raspberry so that’s why it’s blue
edit 2: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_raspberry_flavor
I'm sure it tastes good
Yeah it is pretty good, at least the sweet and kind is. Now it’s just unsweet. At a time when it was sweet I had seven of them at one lunch period.
Without maggots right?
Yeah, I went to school in Southeast Texas, I never had a maggot problem though.
Nah, he just ate the maggots
The blue hides the maggots
Where did you live, I never have seen that before when i went to a public school (my school now got sued a couple years ago, so the food is only a bit better than public school food, the worst I’ve seen is moldy cheese in the year ive been here)
my school has been giving us expired juice since the school year started
Chocolate milkshake is still a milkshake. /Shrug
Because corn is cheaper than apples, so to make the product cheaper, they stretched it out with cellulose and high fructose corn syrup.
Except that tastes awful, so they had to add flavoring to cover it up.
Except now it doesn't taste like applesauce, so they have to add coloring to explain the taste.
Read the ingredients these things are ground up garbage you're better off eating ice cream. Or better yet, just an actual apple. Eat that.
I’ll post a comment to clear some stuff up
The applesauce is blue because it’s blue raspberry flavored, some off brand thing my school has
Why are they eating it? Ask the people that order stuff for the school lunches, nothing else to eat that’s good really
I’ll update or make a post if anything happens with media or legal/health department
>And yes, a few bites were taken before the realization that there were larvae in it
Aaaand that's where this post goes from 'Man, that's pretty nasty' to 'Oooohhhh... I'm out'
Gotta get your protein somewhere
Yes, babies give the best protein.
That includes humans
If you want an easier option just cum in your mouth or something..
That´s net neutral, get yo homies in your mouth
Sir, this is an elementary school
I'm gonna stop you there, pal.
Ngl, it probably has more nutritional value than the rest of the "lunch" at this point...
That’s where this man gets rich as shit tbh. He about to own the school now
They’re just gonna give him two free apple sauces tomorrow.
When I was a teenager, I was snacking on some harvest cheddar sun chips from a bag on the floor while playing videos games. At some point, I thought I saw something moving on my hand. I look down, and there’s small orangish ants on my hand. Look in the bag, hundreds of them. They had probably gotten in there from the floor or window nearby. Went to the bathroom, ants in my mouth. Took a while to feel clean again, even after multiple teeth brushing sessions, mouthwashes, and a shower.
When I was a kid, I often eat rice crispy cereal every morning. It’s a routine, brush my teeth, go the kitchen, cereal and milk in the bowl. I’d do without opening my eyes. One day i sat down to have my cereal, took a bite and it tasted kinda off...like gritty. I opened my eyes, looked down and there had to be hundreds of these tiny bugs floating in my bowl. Spat it out, screamed and cried. Felt like it was a nightmare. Yes i did all that brushing and mouth washing too.
I wish I never read this post.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO TIME TRAVEL BACK RIGHT NOW AND STOP PAST YOU FROM DOING THAT
Probably the healthiest thing in that whole meal.
>The applesauce is blue because it’s blue raspberry flavoured
maybe it’s because i’m not american, but this raises so many more questions than it answers. why do you need to flavour applesauce? what is a blue raspberry? does anyone find neon blue goop appetising?
We have this weird blue raspberry obsession here, no idea why. I seem to remember in the late 90's everything was getting the blue raspberry treatment. It seems like the trend hasn't stopped.
This was probably leftovers from the 90ies.
First thing that pops in my mind is a Blue Razz berry Blow Pop ..... Made from Charms
It stopped.. that's why there are maggots in this one.
Dudes school is busting out the 90s applesauce it seems lol... *hork*
It's probably to hide lower grade apples used that wouldn't sell on appearance

Few bites....my man you ate 90% of that.
Did you puke it? I think it would be a good idea
The maggots don't stand a chance against the marvels of the human digestive tract.
Yes, please puke out the maggots in hopes of saving their innocent lives.
Raspberry .... applesauce?? The fuck
GO TO THE DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY, (*IF YOU HAVE NEGATIVE SYMPTOMS*) MAGGOTS CAN OCCASIONALLY SURVIVE DIGESTION AND INFEST THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM.
(Edited because a right away visit might not be needed.)
Hi. Here from front page. Sorry old. But a physician. Maggots will not survive stomach acid. The larger risk here is the chance of bacterial poisoning from the food itself or if the maggot *somehow* came in contact with feces. Food with maggots will have a very high probability of giving some degree of food poisoning. If you start to become febrile, vomiting, diarrhea, dizzy, etc. Go to a&e/ER
Hello older person, how is your day?
Good day, youth. I'm doing quite swimmingly. Appreciate you asking.
Hope your day is dandy as well.
It's as dandy as it can get, so pretty average. But thanks :)
I’m repeatedly reading that maggots have a chance of surviving digestion and causing myiasis.
“Accidental myiasis: results from ingestion of eggs or existing maggots into the gastrointestinal tract. Local irritation, vomiting, and diarrhea are the usual symptoms. The low oxygen levels in the gut usually will kill the maggots, but some survive intact because their outer layers are resistant to digestive enzymes.” [source](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6161638/)
“Intestinal myiasis is a type of myiasis that can occur when a person ingests larvae that survive inside the gastrointestinal tract. Some people with intestinal myiasis do not experience any symptoms and may only realize that they have an infestation after noticing larvae in their stools.” [source](https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/325319#intestinal-myiasis)
Either way op needs medical advice.
yes, there are documented cases of ingested maggot myiasis. It's exceedingly uncommon and I've never seen it in 20 years of being an ER physician. In the US and UK nearly all variations of fly larvae will not survive in the low oxygen environs of the gut, nor the low pH of the stomachs acid (usually around 2). I did operate under the assumption OP is North America or UK. However, if they are in underdeveloped regions of India, Africa or SE Asia, then they should be wary and mindful of how they feel and err on the side of caution and seek an opinion.
Edit: I also never saw myiasis when I worked with MSF in Africa. But, appreciate the journal articles and the call out. Good to be reminded that uncommon doesn't mean unpossible
Glad to learn more on the topic. I honestly just knew it was a possibility that the larvae could infest a persons digestive tract and freaked out for op. I edited my original comment.
All good. Health is wealth and always err on the side of caution.
Yes, intestinal myiasis can occur. However, even the sources you linked do not support an immediate medical visit or intervention without symptoms of intentional myiasis.
Because the risk of it occurring is minimal and there isn’t really an agreed upon treatment (with some cases just being allowed to run the course), the most a medical professional is going to do is say “if you develop these symptoms, come back.”
Further — there’s a reason for the way physicians handle things like this as well as other conditions. Many times the risks of possible treatments outweigh the benefit to the patient. Sometimes the use of proposed treatments for a case would limit treatment access for more critical patients. In other cases, the over prescribing of drugs can lead to them becoming less effective in the future (looking at you [antibiotics](https://www.cidrap.umn.edu/asp/overuse-overprescribing-of-antibiotics) ).
Depends how you eat them, if you bite the insect in half it’ll die
You chew applesauce?
Eww, no, but you do chew maggots.
Yea but it’s in applesauce. I don’t think people really chew applesauce.
that’s disgusting omg, did you report it to someone???
Yeah everyone knows now it got spread around on social media
Shit, careful OP. Big apple sauce does not play around. Stay on guard, you may have made some very dangerous enemies.
Make millions in less than a week in America, just gotta do it right
home of the free baby
Many you really have to show that to those school district and see what they have to say
Yo you gotta spread this on social media and send it to news broadcasters and everything
Damn I came here to say that
Not extra... it **IS** protein...
Yeah yeah you’re made of trillions of nucleotides but you don’t see me going around eating people
Brother that isn't applesauce that's toxic waste
Welcome to the American school lunch system
you dont even need to get hit by a bus this time
Oof, you don't wanna know what's in the college applesauce.
did u already eat a bit of it
No, wasn’t mine
hehee baby blue hehehe
How is that applesauce? Why is it blue
It has blue raspberry flavor
That is weird mate. Your school needs a better menu
I mean at least there’s no maggots
What's this video then?
Saw this on r/MakeMeSuffer
can I see the post?
Yeah just look at my profile, I posted it on there too originally
Too all the people still somehow confused,
The applesauce is blue because it is blue raspberry flavored, some brand named ZeeZee’s.
And incase you haven’t seen my other comment, I’ll make an update on any legal action being taken or what happens in regards with the health department.
And to the person who was eating dinner, sorry!
I feel bad for you mate. More than half the comments are about why is it blue when you can find the answer in top 3 comments smh
The comments are 50% why is it blue and 40% protein with the last 10% being to sue
Humanity in a nutshell
Then where do you think protein comes from
How tf does that even qualify as applesauce when it’s **that** blue
burn baby, burn
and how many students got this and managed to ate the whole thing
Blue raspberry applesause still exists? My district stopped serving it when I was in elementary. But back on topic, that's the fattest lawsuit I've ever seen. You need to take legal action before this gets worse, assuming it hasn't happened before. Also I really hope you got a chance to regurgitate that before you actually digested it, I've never eaten bugs but I'm aware enough to know it isn't good for you. Anyways I hope you live safely.
I mean my school gave us pink chicken, stale cereal that milk couldn't soften, two week expired milk, apple juice with chunks and slimy bits, moldy bread, moldy cream cheese, weird tasting hard chicken patties, grey thin meat patties, etc.
Tbh pink Chichen is not harmful to you as it only turns pink due to the Chichen dieing in a certain way. I think it’s heart attack of heat stroke/Dehydration
Wish.com Blue Raspberry flavor apple protein shake
Shhh, not everyone gets to have those keep it a secret lol. Just kidding that’s horrible
Edit: Apearantly, I'm very original.
Literally my notifications are like 300 messages if people saying “extra protein”
Another reason to take my own lunch with me, I can trust it.
But it is kind of expected to take your own lunch here in the Netherlands.
Better call Saul
Disgusting, get to parents and they’ll report to public health department! Those are fly larvae, maggots, of some type.
Sue sue sue sue sue sue sue sue sue sue sue sue sue
My girlfriend had a layer of mold in her applesauce once
one time i drank one of those small cartons of orange juice and a giant chunk of mold went in my mouth
Broooooo you just made me gag
Y’all got Free extras in sauce must be nice back in my day
more protein than salisbury steak
meanwhile, people who eat maggots:
It adds some ✨flavor✨
Its been so ass, ever since Covid
MURRRRICA FUCK YEAH
Even the apple sauce is blue with maggots. This is so disgusting and Apple Sauce shouldn't be freaking blue. I think your school just needs to give the students a better lunch menu.
“I think your school just needs to give the students a better lunch menu”
I assume you don’t live in the US, horrible food is across the entire public school system
it’s a blue raspberry flavor
