Oh my god that is disgusting


BeatToYeet69

Where? Edit: One word was worthy of 4k upvotes and 4 awards. This site confuses me greatly.


illumiin

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


itz-just_me

I'm pretty sure he was referencing a meme


illumiin

oops I'm dumb


BeatToYeet69

nah it was a kinda dumb joke


Zzzzzzzzzzip

The whole thread is true.


Madly_Maxie

This is true


msartore8

You are NOT dumb for not knowing a meme. Quite the opposite.


Idkrawr808

There is such a thing as knowing too many memes, and thus there is a scale of good to bad memes.


production-values

In the apple sauce


TheLeafyOne2

Yeah but which one there are so many!


2000000man

I dont think apple sauce is supposed to be blue... never seen blue apples, have you?


Misabi

That blue shit is supposed to be apple sauce?


Grey_Johnny

Keep It and show your parents.


RVAGrey4123

Yo tell your parents to call the local news. They'll air this same day and set a fire about it.


thewintermood

Seriously though. Him sending this video is a virtual guarantee of better food going forward


senselesssht

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.


KhanSTiPate

Free food should still be edible. Edit: especially when our tax dollars pay for schools to provide lunch.


Saturnian_Hunter

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.


LoftfoL

It’s extra nutritional now


FossilizedBlobfish

Maggots have high protein content👍


Chill4x

Is school lunch ever free?


senselesssht

Just in California, sorry. Edit: Glad it’s free (for kids) in all states. Couldnt remember if it was statewide or nationwide.


Ihcend

and 49 other states, sorry


Shortbus-Thug

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


eman_e31

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.

I don't think it's working all that well


bartsimpsonisgay

a lot of schools make it blueberry apple sauce for whatever reason


Mossy590

I mean that sounds good but even without maggots that apple sauce looks nasty. Just give em regular or cinnamon...


Babyarmdeuce

Where else are they supposed to learn their colors? On the job?


LordKabooshki42

My school has blue applesauce, it’s a blue raspberry flavor, it actually goes pretty hard. I don’t know about the maggots however…


Danger0Reilly

Added protein?

# 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.**


ActionScripter9109

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

show it AND keep it


_Gary_Laser_Eyes_

Show and tell it, maybe.


Think_Temperature_39

Go tell it on the mountain..


ManWithWalrus

Show it and keep it and eat it.. on video.. and post on reddit


Such_Newt_1374

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.


tittylover007

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


dontworryitsme4real

Honestly, it was probably a single damaged box that damaged the container.


jakeo10

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.


[deleted]

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.


jakeo10

Is it half eaten or just filled 50% because many packets like that don't come full.


NopNipper_Twitch

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.


ThunderingRimuru

Show and tell


Bazmati1234

Applesauce??? Thats fking blue!!!! This murican???


Shuriken_God

As a murican, idk what type of applesauce this is


lordoftowels

Report that shit, it has to be a violation of some law, probably from the FDA or something


And1mistaketour

It looks like a sealed container out of a factory somewhere. It probably just got a puncture that a fly took advantage of.


Muxioz

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


T_oasty

And the bump it leaves on your head is like 10x bigger, as well. Horseflies suck.


Stripez030

Went on a float trip and couldn't go 5 mins without having to jump underwater cause a horse fly was swarming me


Axeoskaiii

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


Icarus_New_World

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.


Mrmcgamer

At least mosquitoes have a reason for being annoying


GhoulboyScoob

no use. you’ll get faster results by joining the FDA.


Mathesar

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.


BR-55

why is apple sauce blue...?


Pet_that_Dog

It's blue raspberry flavor applesauce. My school has it and I've never had it.


BR-55

WHY CALL IT APPLE SAUCE IF ITS BLUE RASPBERRY FLAVOUR???


BisexualAmoeb

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


BR-55

ew


excesscuriosity

I'm sure it tastes good without maggots


Btrain213

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.


watchLava10Reddit

Without maggots right?


ThunderingRimuru

He hopes


Btrain213

Yeah, I went to school in Southeast Texas, I never had a maggot problem though.


SubstantialPiglet524

Nah, he just ate the maggots


mctomtom

The blue hides the maggots


ThunderingRimuru

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)


Char_Zard13

my school has been giving us expired juice since the school year started


DudeImLoggedIn

Chocolate milkshake is still a milkshake. /Shrug


Reacher-Said-N0thing

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.


Competitive-Ear-6443

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


UncleTedGenneric

>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'

Oo0o8o0oO

They’re just gonna give him two free apple sauces tomorrow.


treehugger312

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.


Tinbitzz

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.


VennTheSW

I wish I never read this post.


ThisIsAUsernamef

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO TIME TRAVEL BACK RIGHT NOW AND STOP PAST YOU FROM DOING THAT


EdensNewParasite

Probably the healthiest thing in that whole meal.


smokedstupid

>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?


m9832

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.


olearygreen

This was probably leftovers from the 90ies.


FirstFuego

First thing that pops in my mind is a Blue Razz berry Blow Pop ..... Made from Charms


Sunretea

It stopped.. that's why there are maggots in this one. Dudes school is busting out the 90s applesauce it seems lol... *hork*


horriblebearok

It's probably to hide lower grade apples used that wouldn't sell on appearance

Own_Reveal4011

Few bites....my man you ate 90% of that.


AranCab

Did you puke it? I think it would be a good idea


ubermeisters

The maggots don't stand a chance against the marvels of the human digestive tract.


SarcasmDetectorFail

Yes, please puke out the maggots in hopes of saving their innocent lives.


Almighty_Sand_Dollar

Raspberry .... applesauce?? The fuck


TerracottaBunny

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.)


I_upvote_zeroes

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


Thatoneshadowbunny

Hello older person, how is your day?


I_upvote_zeroes

Good day, youth. I'm doing quite swimmingly. Appreciate you asking.


Thatoneshadowbunny

Welcome :)


I_upvote_zeroes

Hope your day is dandy as well.


Thatoneshadowbunny

It's as dandy as it can get, so pretty average. But thanks :)


TerracottaBunny

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.


I_upvote_zeroes

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


TerracottaBunny

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.


I_upvote_zeroes

All good. Health is wealth and always err on the side of caution.


romcombo

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) ).


duckyfy

Depends how you eat them, if you bite the insect in half it’ll die


vinnyj

You chew applesauce?


Kranon7

Eww, no, but you do chew maggots.


Blazers360

Yea but it’s in applesauce. I don’t think people really chew applesauce.


teethpaste_426

that’s disgusting omg, did you report it to someone???

Yeah everyone knows now it got spread around on social media

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

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


DaRealNinFlower

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.


NicGreen214

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
