It seems that everyone, including brands, is waiting with bated breath to find out how what appeared to be shrimp and other questionable objects ended up in comedian Jensen Karp’s Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
Jano Cabrera, global chief communications officer for Cinnamon Toast Crunch parent General Mills, told PRWeek, “While we are investigating this, we can say with confidence this did not occur in our facility. We are waiting for the consumer to send us the package to investigate further.”
Meanwhile, Karp is sticking to his story.
Whatever the outcome, one thing is certain: other brands aren’t hesitating to make Cinnamon Toast Crunch the object of fun.

no one has ever found shrimp in our meat to my knowledge but if they did we would not say it was actually a crystallized frozen grease clump
