A fresher found a beetle in their Fallowfield Sainsbury’s Basics cheddar

They named it Robbie the cheese beetle


First-year cheese lover Frederica bought some Sainsbury's basics cheddar cheese in Fallowfield, only to find a dead beetle squished into the cheesy goodness.

Her flatmate Ellie tweeted Sainsbury's about the cheese beetle and also said, "We were traumatised, it made me so glad I'm vegan." (Shock.)

Frederica told The Tab Manchester: "I'm still eating the cheese even after the bug was found in it. Can't afford to waste good cheese. We named it Robbie after the nice man from customer service. Sainsbury's have given us a £10 gift allowance which we're going to spend on a flat cheese night."

They tried to stick the cheese beetle to their fridge, like some sort of gross fresher fridge magnet, but sadly had to throw him away in the end.
