A woman in Britain got a pretty gross surprise in her Krispy Kreme doughnut this week.

When Ria Findlay caramel doughnut, she immediately noticed that there was something wrong.

“As it was my first, I was discussing flavors of the filling with my colleague next to me,” she told The Mirror. “It was like: ‘Oooh there’s caramel, and cream and oh what’s this blue stuff?’”

The blue stuff was a latex glove.

Findlay posted the pic on Twitter and on Instagram, where she received a response from Krispy Kreme:

“Hi Ria, please accept our apologies. Please can you send full details over to us so we can investigate and liaise with you > [email protected] Our customer care team will be in touch with you tomorrow.”

While the glove was probably from an employee:
