A Dumfries and Galloway man got the shock of his life when he "found a live maggot" in his Cadbury Buttons chocolate Easter egg.
After eating the chocolate buttons, Zachary Macdonald, 21, turned to the egg and when he opened it up he found the maggot inside.
His mother Isabel, 53, who lives at Kirkgunzeon, near Dalbeattie, was mortified when he showed her the creepy crawly in the egg.
She had bought it at a Dumfries supermarket on 4 March as a surprise treat for her son.
Isabel has been disappointed by the response from Cadbury.
She says after emailing them to tell them about her discovery there was no response and she had to telephone them on 7 March.
