To whom it may concern:
I would like to recommend more wax in the foil-paper inner-wrap so as to provide a better seal against incursion of insects (and anything else like water or dirt).
Tonight, we purchased a 3oz Endangered Species "Grey Wolf" Choclate bar from Walgreens at Morris and FM407 in Highland Village, TX. I verified the wrapper does not list insects as an ingredient and was not past its fresh date.

There was a small larva (12mm x 1mm) alive that had burrowed through one of the squares from the flat side, along with a multitude of small pellets of waste. I have attached pictures; however, I could not get the one of the larva to focus. Whatever it was, it liked the chocolate and the almonds.

I called the store to advise them so they could check the surrounding candies for problems. I'm not sure what type of critter this was, so I can't gauge how long it took to get to the larval stage. As such, I can't guess whether it came from the factory with an embedded egg in the chocolate, if it could have survived the molten chocolate, or if it was simply infested during transport/storage.

Thanks for your time.

Sincerely,
Josh-Daniel S. Davis

And, um, yes, some of the chocolate bar was consumed BEFORE noticing, but it was from the a full 5 inches away.

Still, pretty gross.

umm, ew - just plain ew.

"NOW WITH MORE LARVAE!"

That must have been one of the new high protein chocolate bars.

Re: "NOW WITH MORE LARVAE!"

No no, see paragraph 1. "I checked to make sure that insects were not on the ingredient list."

I'm torn. With the cold weather, it could have been an egg left during processing. OR, it could have been left by a warehouse fly. Hard to tell. BUT, my candies wrapped and sealed had NO bugs and they were from the same shelf.
