Little Boy Finds Bats**t Crazy Surprise In Bag Of Sweets
There's nothing like a surprise is there?
Claire MacPherson claims that her four-year-old son Aaron was tucking into gummy sweets that his gran bought him as a treat from a Lidl store when he discovered a dead bat.
The mum-of-two, 36, said: "When he got home and opened the packet he found a little bat stuck on to the sweets. It was absolutely disgusting.
"It's horrendous. It's scary to think what kind of diseases it could have.

"I also have a 14-month-old baby and if she had been eating the sweets then she would have put it straight in her mouth. I will not be stepping foot in that store again.
"My mum was up all night being sick just at the thought of it and my son still seems in shock."
Claire, of Stobswell, Dundee, explained Aaron had been staying with his grandma Francis before allegedly spotting the dead animal.
A spokesman for Lidl told The Sun Online: "We were very sorry to hear of this matter. Lidl prides itself in offering customers high quality products at low price and we take feedback of this nature very seriously.

"We can confirm that immediate contact was made with the customer on Friday 2nd June, to request further information and provide assurances that details would be passed straight onto our Quality Assurance Department to investigate."
But we'll forgive you, as Lidl agreed last year to pay the new Living Wage Foundation Rate as an Accredited Living Wage employer, meaning all staff are paid a minimum of £8.53 per hour, raised to £9.75 per hour for those who live in London.
As reported by the Independent, Nan Gibson, board director and general legend at Lidl, stated last year: "We recognise the contribution of each and every colleague within the business and we feel it's important to celebrate our achievements together."
"So it fills me with pride that our colleagues are among the best paid in the supermarket sector, and it's absolutely deserved for the commitment and value they bring to the company every day."
Fair play Lidl, you're alright.
