This Girl Found Out The Pepper On Her Chips Was Actually Dead Ants


I am really happy this did not happen to me, because I guarantee it would go a little something like this...

Me: "Man, these chips don't even taste good, why am I still eating them? Oh, my God, they are covered in dead ants."

This is also me realizing I have no control of my life, and I'm going to continue to eat these chips.


Emily Wagoner is just a high schooler who was enjoying some Pita Pit in Beaverton, Oregon. On the side, she had Miss Vickie's Sea Salt and Vinegar Chips.

All was right in the world.

Until she realized that what she originally assumed was pepper on the chips turned out to be DEAD ANTS.


Emily complained to the store manager, because she did not order dead ants and all he offered her was a new bag of chips.

Like, "Sorry your first bag of chips had dead ants in them, wanna try again?"

This lackluster apology did not impress her so she took to Twitter to call them out, which I find... a little weird.

Emily, now the whole world knows you eat dead ants.

Pita Pit's Twitter account saw the tweet and reached out to her in a direct message, offering a $50 gift card.

But since she wasn't even offered a refund in the first place, she does not think the gift card is enough to overcome the TRAUMA of eating dead ants.


Emily wants Pita Pit to fix the issue with Miss Vickie's Chips, not just a $50 gift card.

Our thoughts are with you, Emily.
