Man shares saga after finding live caterpillars in store-bought broccoli

A British man who discovered some creepy crawlies lurking in his produce took Twitter users on a ride when he decided to raise and release them.Sam Darlaston, a radio host for KISS FM U.K.‘s Late Show, took to Twitter on June 11 .after discovering a handful of caterpillars munching on a head of broccoli he recently purchased from British grocery store Tesco.“Hey @Tesco,” Darlaston wrote.

“I was about to cook my favourite vegetable of all time (broccoli) and after unwrapping it, to my surprise, found caterpillars inside!”.“They’re really nice and we’ve ended up keeping one as a pet and naming him.

But just as a heads up, some of your broc has c-pillars”.he later shared a video of his new “pet,” named Cedric, hanging out inside of a large, plastic container, where he provided him with food and water.On his next trip to Tesco that same day, to replace his caterpillar-tainted vegetables, Darlaston was shocked to discover .that the second head of broccoli he purchased had five more of the little critters — which he named Broc, Olly, Carlos, Croc and Janine.The next day, a straggler was found in a third head of broccoli purchased by Darlaston’s roommate, which he named Slim Eric.Tesco responded to the thread on Twitter, apologizing — but for the most part, Darlaston doesn’t seem too bothered by the incident and the subsequent journey it led him on
