"A horror movie": Woman's shock at unwanted guest in purchase

 "A horror movie": Woman's shock at unwanted guest in purchase

A Woolworths customer has found the funny side to a very disturbing find in her gingerbread house.

Shopper Katie explained to Facebook that she found a massive huntsman, complete with egg sac, in a readymade gingerbread house that was purchased from her local supermarket.

“Wait Woolworths, this isn’t what I ordered?” laughed Katie.

“Only in Australia, only in #2020.

“Buy a readymade gingerbread house they said, it’ll be easier than building one they said!

“Seriously I don’t say this often but: why me?”

She then described how she found it in the packaging.

“It was like a horror movie,” she said.

“I was making myself a cup of tea, I glanced up at the gingerbread house thinking, ‘Hmmmm I wonder if I can sneak a piece off without the kids noticing.’

“Then I saw it, the tip ... of a leg, and then another leg and then another, and then the body, carrying a mother trucking egg sac.

“I’m done!”

People were disgusted with the find.

“Are you SERIOUS? It’s INSIDE THE BOX,” wrote one.

“OMG! Complete with egg sac so it’s been in there a long while!”

Katie said she moved the spider outside, and a Woolworths representative apologised for the "scary surprise".

“Oh no Katie - this critter just wanted a home, but this is definitely not the right one for her!” the representative said.

“Thanks for letting us know, and we apologise for the scary surprise. After all, it’s Christmas, not Halloween.

“Please feel free to return the gingerbread house to our store service desk for a replacement - one without an added houseguest!”
