Young lad’s incredible Babybel mishap finally gives mum explanation for why he doesn’t like them

Young lad’s incredible Babybel mishap finally gives mum explanation for why he doesn’t like them

People have been left in stitches over a mum's realisation as to why her son 'really hates' Babybels.

Oh, to be 10 years old again and on a school trip, not giving two sh*ts about whatever ancient animal you're meant to be analysing or rocks you're meant to be collecting, instead, sat there daydreaming about your packed lunch filled with goodies.

Whether it be Dairylea dunkers or lunchables, a Cheesestring, Fruit Winder or Penguin bar, there was nothing better than a day where you can swap out your sludge-coloured school stew for a crisp, fresh sandwich and some surprise snacks too.

However, sometimes, snacks aren't always quite as straight forward as they seem and one mum has since taken to Facebook to reveal the hilarious reason her son was taking such a dislike to her putting Babybels in his box.

While I used to delight over a Babybel and spend significant time trying to mould the outer shell of red wax into the next Michelangelo sculpture, it seems the creative possibilities of the wax were completely lost on one child.

Alongside posting a picture of a Babybel onto Facebook group, 'Family Lowdown Tips and Ideas,' a mum named Rachael Edmans wrote: "My son really hates these.

"And today I found out why, because he was not removing the red wax. Yep, just eating it with the wax on."

The post has since amassed over 10,000 likes, with users quick to jump to the image to share their own similar experiences.

Some people admitted to having the same issue as Rachael's son.

"Omg I used to do the same thing then even cried when I found out I couldn't eat that part.. I liked it," one said.

Another added: "My kid done this. I was like maaaaate you need to take the red bit off. Funny thing is he didn't even complain he just ate it."

"Better than my kid. Liked the wax, didn’t like the cheese…," a third wrote.

Other users chimed in with their own weird food mishap stories.

One said: "My daughter hated boiled eggs until I realised she was eating the shell."

"I made a sandwich at my parents house once and it was disgusting when they came in I said I had a ham and lettuce sandwich earlier it was rank they said with what lettuce I said the one in the fridge they said we have no lettuce just cabbage," a second recalled.

A final said: "My husband didn't take the plastic wrap off those sausages you need to boil and thought they had a weird texture........he discovered later."
