Well, I Lost My Appetite This Morning


Well, my day’s off to a fine start……….look at that delicious, delectable Belgium waffle I got at my hometown diner!  I mean, I couldn’t ask for anything more—melted whipped butter and hot maple syrup all on a golden brown Belgium Waffle.  Mmmmmmmm.

Well, NOT SO FAST!  Apparently, AFTER I had already taken this waffle home (since I got it to-go), microwaved it, and eaten half of it—Herman, the waffle bug, made an appearance in my face and had apparently been cooked into it on the backside at the diner before it was even given to me!!

At this rate, I’m going to lose even more weight—which I can’t afford to do.

Waffle Bug

Yeah, now that I think about it, I do distinctly remember asking for a ‘side of BUG’ with my waffle.  HOW DOES THIS EVEN HAPPEN!!!!!!  Gross!  Yeah, just click on that picture there so you can get a much better shot of it IN YOUR FACE like I did—legs and all!!!

Thank GOODNESS, as I cut the next bite, I had turned the fork over because that sucker was headed right for my mouth.  I initially thought it was a crispy burnt piece and was going to eat it anyway.

But something told me to do some further investigating.  So I took my fork out of the waffle and proceeded to move the ‘black spot’ with my fork.  Oh, my—EWWWWWW!!!

Upon further inspection, there were obvious legs protruding from a rock hard body that had been cooked to death.  This was clearly a homicide.  Now my waffle has become a murder scene.


So, if you have nothing else to do today, inspect every black spot you see in your food before eating it.  Never assume it’s just pepper, a black bean, or a crispy burnt piece of the food.  Better to assume it’s a crispy, burnt bug and save yourself!

Take-Away Life Lesson:  Never assume there’s NOT a herd of dead bugs on the backside of your waffle just because the front of it is bugless.

  1. Better get CSI on the case…hope you didn’t tamper too much with the evidence. If you’re anything like me you’ll go paranoid for a while at least. lol

    1. Lol! I had a lot of trauma after that. And, yes, that’s the scary part—the evidence was tampered with TOO much from my eating most of the scene!

  2. O. My. Goodness. This is genuinely awful. I once had a staple toasted into a ham and cheese toastie. Although it was at home. At 2.30am. And I think my drunk friend did it so she could make a ‘staple diet’ joke when she found it…..

  3. Yuck-a-do…unlucky you. Definitely not a good way to start the day! Lesson learned for me~ inspect, inspect, inspect… 🙁

  4. Oh, myyyyyyyyy….. I can see you are quite upset. I would be too… But this is one reason why I make pancakes and waffles from scratch for my kids!

    I’m sorry your morning was ruined… 🙁

    1. Yeah, I probably need to go back to cooking EVERYTHING myself since other people are having problems cooking it right. 🙂

  5. Oh my that was gross. I too had the misfortune of drinking my strawberry juice up to the last drop before realizing that something was stuck to the ice. Upon close inspection, it was a fly! Ugh but what to do?

    1. Hilarious and disgusting at the same time! Eww! I’m sure I’ll start checking the cake amongst other things, too, now! 🙂

  6. What a nasty surprise. Darned waffle bugs.
    But it has to be said that unless your meals are made in a lab under sterile conditions, it’s almost inevitable that there will be something unwanted in your food, whether you can see it or not. You haven’t died from it so far, and what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger! I’m sure I’ve eaten a fair few bugs in my time 😉

    1. I’m just glad I didn’t KNOW about other ‘things’ in my food that I may have inadvertently eaten. Once you see it, it kind of turns your stomach.

  7. groooooooosssssssss! am so sorry you had that happen–horrors! please tell me you told the diner and they gave you your $$ back. The big Q: Will you eat there again?

    1. Lol! I know, right? I definitely plan on telling them next time I go there (probably today). And, yes, I will eat there again. This is the first time I’ve experienced this—plus they have my ginormous cinnamon rolls and I can’t just abandon those! 😉

  8. Well, Well, Well, poor old Herman. Take that thing back bug and all and get…well…maybe something else but show them and get a freebie. Bugs do happen. I actually had a live one in a salad at the expensive restaurant above the Music Center in LA. Got a martini out of that one BUT couldn’t eat anything else before the matinee so it had to be cookies and expresso in the downstairs coffee bar so my stomach wouldn’t talk to me, and everyone else, during the play. Sorry about your morning. dru

    1. I plan to let them know next time I go there. Normally, I probably would show them the bug, too, but it was disgusting. I’m sure I’ll get something free. 🙂
