My plan was to make Banana Oatmeal cookies this morning, I already had the Banana's mashed and half of the ingredients mixed when I opened my brand new sealed container of Oats.. it had bugs inside! Gross! I had to throw the whole thing of Oats away! I was bummed.. and then had to figure out something else I could make with the Banana's and Ingredients I had.. ended up with Banana Muffins! So it worked out well in the end, but still super disappointed and totally grossed out by the Oats!

Bugs LOVE grains!  yes, I've had it happen to me in the past.  Once we got rid of grains and legumes...no more bugs.

I've opened up boxes of pasta before, turned them upside down to pour them in the pot and more bugs come out than pasta!

Gross.

Oh no!  That is gross.  I don't usually have oats around so I haven't had that happen.

I had it happen years ago, but it was in an opened package. Now I store them in airtight containers. Never had it happen in a new package.

That's why I was so surprised, it was a brand new package!
