The internet was taken aback by the gripping story about a man who found shrimp in his Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. But the gentleman didn’t only discover shrimp in his cinnamony breakfast cereal; he also found string, dental floss, and rat poop.
The internet reacted with outstanding memes about the special Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. Tremendous memes suggested that there was a cereal war between Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Cap’n Crunch, a Rubik’s Cube cereal, a nod to Nathan Fielder’s Nathan for You, a Mortdecai movie DVD cereal, and stupendous jokes on Twitter.
Hey I hate asking for help on here but I am asking you to be on the lookout for several shrimp tails that I seem to have misplaced. I haven’t been many places recently, just the car wash, the post office, cereal factory tour, an ATM visit, and a friend’s backyard. PLEASE HELP

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

The internet thought the biggest surprise about the man who found shrimp in his Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal was the shrimp. They were incorrect. Shockingly, the dude with the fishy surprise in his cereal box is also the husband of the actress who played Topanga on Boy Meets World.
Jensen Karp — a writer, comedian, and podcaster – said he found shrimp tails in the box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Then things took a wild twist when it was revealed that Karp is married to Danielle Fishel Karp.
OK, this Cinnamon Toast Crunch/shrimp tails story is wild, but we’re burying the lede here…

After the official Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal Twitter account said the shrimp tails were an “accumulation of sugar particles,” Danielle Fishel Karp chimed in on her husband’s cereal fame, “I am truly at a loss for words.”

People could not deal with the premise that Topanga is not actually married to Cory Matthews from Boy Meets World.

Even Jensen Karp was shocked by the news.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch has responded to the shrimp controversy by issuing a statement.
“While we are still investigating this matter, we can say with confidence that this did not occur at our facility,” a spokesperson for General Mills said. “We are waiting for the consumer to send us the package to investigate further. Any consumers who notice their cereal box or bag has been tampered with, such as the clear tape that was found in this case, should contact us.”
