Is it teething time for your little one?


One greedy dad tucked into his kid’s Halloween goodies but was shocked by what he found. The dad discovered that one of the chocolate biscuits he had scoffed down was from 1999.


Yes, that’s right, the biscuits were 18 years old. The dad couldn’t believe he ate the out of date biscuit, but what shocked him more was the fact that someone gave them to his kids.


The dad documented his horror story on Twitter. He wrote, “Think I’ve just eaten a biscuit (from a packet given to our kids while trick or treating) that went out of date 18 years ago. Not joking.”


He continued, “Don’t think this specific brand exists anymore. Is there a doctor in the house?”


Adrian Johnson couldn’t believe what he ate. He admitted that he felt extremely queasy after his unfortunate snack.


He told the Press Association that the biscuit tasted unusual when he took his first bite, “ The second bite I knew there was definitely something wrong with them.”


The biscuits were made before his daughters were even born. The dad expressed his disbelief, he couldn't believe someone would give the gone off biscuits to trick or treaters.



When he checked the best before date on the packet, he couldn’t believe his eyes. The packet stated that the biscuits sell by date was May 15, 1999.


The poor dad was left feeling queasy after tucking into one of the 18-year-old biscuits.


He shared, “That second bit ended up in the sink. I had to rinse my mouth and brush my teeth.”


Adrian revealed that the biscuits tasted vile and they left a long-lingering bad taste in his mouth.



His daughters thought the incident was hilarious. The witty girls were fast asleep when their dad raided their Halloween sweet collection.


“My kids, Poppy and Eidy, found it hilarious this morning when I told them the story as they were asleep when it all happened.”


The hilarious youngsters told their dad that he should stay away from their Halloween treats in the future.


Adrian didn’t bother telling his neighbours about the biscuits, but he might visit them later in the week, “I might pop round tonight when I get back home for their sake, as who knows what else they’re keeping in their cupboards.”


We’re sure Adrian will stay far away from his daughter’s Halloween goodies in the future.
