A tea-time sweet treat turned into a creepy crawley nightmare after a man found these critters scampering over his chocolate biscuits.
Jackir Rahman, from Green Street, Upton Park, was looking forward to tucking into a box of Cadbury’s chocolate fingers his mother had bought earlier that day from a nearby supermarket.
But Jak claims that, when the packaging was removed, a number of small, brown critters were found crawling around inside.
A “disgusted” Jak said: “They were very much alive, all wriggling about. They’re sort of really small bug things.
“A bit like beetles but tiny. I don’t really know how to else to describe them.

“I went to Cadbury’s and they asked me to send them back so they could look into it so I wrapped them up in clingfilm.
“It’s horrible, no one wants to find bugs in their Chocolate Fingers.”
