Full Story (Portsmouth News site.)

This poor man was the tragic victim of finding an ordinary digestive biscuit in a packet of chocolate digestives. Will he be able to receive counselling on the NHS or should we set up a Just Giving page for donations to help him over it?

Has this happened to anyone else? If so, how did you manage to rebuild your life afterwards?

A full and immediate NHS intervention should have been offered. He will be traumatised I tell you. Traumatised.

That haunting photo...

You can see the pain and despair coming through the anger and knitwear.

He should go full legal and sue the biscuit makers - PTSD and the hunger that he must have endured!

Honestly op there should be a trigger warning in your post! Get onto MNHQ now and sort it out.

It’s not the same but once I opened a box of 12 fish fingers and there were only 11 in there.
This was about 5 years ago roughly. I still can’t go to the beach

He urgently needs to make contact with this fellow victim and see if she can help with his legal options.
Hopefully successful litigation will cover the costs of his ongoing therapy and rehabilitation

I didn't realise you could sue Nestle for waferless a Kit Kat! They owe me several lifetime supplies if that's the case. I'm traumatised I tell you. Like the time I opened a packet of Iced Gems, and some of them were missing the gems. I mean that's just a biscuit ffs!

I have another member for the support group

It's more common than at first realised obviously. These poor people suffering like that. sad

I once found a waferless KitKat. It the best day of my life, and no mistake.

My friend once bought a multipack of 6 x packets of genuine Hula Hoops... so she thought!

Turns out one of those bags wasn't genuine Hula Hoops. 1 bag was a LIDL version of Hula Hoops! shockangry

The poor woman never recovered from the shock and horror. Marriage suffered and they divorced. She lost her job, her home. She's now living in her car.

If only she'd had the appropriate professional support she deserved.

I'll support your Just Giving digestive biscuit cause if it saves one person from anothet tragic outcome sad

That's nothing. A man in our city got what he deserved when he tried to pinch some of his DCs Halloween Trick or Treat Booty. They had been given chocolate digestives that were 18 YEARS out of date.

He needs to work on his sad face for the local paper too.

shock you're a monster! How are you meant to dip a waferless Kit Kat into a cup of tea? It just doesn't work, it's not fit for purpose!

Digestives are one of those things I never buy, but whenever I eat one I remember how bloody brilliant they are.

wartortle Thu 02-Nov-17 12:15:02

He did it to get on a Facebook page, Angry People in Local Newspapers (well worth checking out!)

I once had a packet of Asdas cheese and onion crisps that were ready salted in flavourshock

Sugarcoma Thu 02-Nov-17 12:26:08

biscuit (this one appears to have jam in it though)

abbsisspartacus Thu 02-Nov-17 12:26:28

I think he did it himself he is knitted scam man 🤔

ChardonnaysPrettySister Thu 02-Nov-17 12:28:58

My heart is bleeding.

ChardonnaysPrettySister Thu 02-Nov-17 12:32:58

I now feel compelled to buy a packet of chocolate digestives for research purposes.

The way he's holding it and pointing at it as if to say
. "Grrrrr, Look here's the horrible bastard."grin

I once had a biscuit free breakaway. I nibbled round taking the chocolate off (as you did) but the chocolate just kept going. It was great.

I also have a hula hoops tale. Half the amount of single packets plus one larger sharing pack from Tesco. Sent a joke 'complaint' and got sent some vouchers back.

I once bought a tin of hotdogs..... with NO hotdogs in it!!! Just a tin of brine shock
I valiantly fought and got me quid back grin

Sparklingbrook Thu 02-Nov-17 13:25:30

A likely story chewable you ate them straight out of the tin didn't you? 😁

Goldenbug Thu 02-Nov-17 13:37:01

Probably swallowed them whole like a penguin swallowing a fish.
