As many of us tucked into tonnes of chocolate over the Easter weekend, the majority would have done so knowing that the only damage will be in the form of a big sugar low later on.
One family's chocolate feast was narrowly saved from becoming a horrific disaster, however.
Vikki Maguire-Grant bought a giant Kinder egg from Asda and gave it to her two-year-old daughter to have a bite.
But after that first chunk, Vikki saw there was something attached to the egg. Check it out here...

That's a fairly small but sharp looking needle poking into the egg - which could have some done serious damage if it was ingested.
Vikki, from Sunderland, told the Manchester Evening News: "I do not know if it's a needle or pin as one end is embedded. I could not see any holes anywhere on the box but I trust the experts to find this.
"At the moment I can only speculate how it got there. I reported it in case anyone else had the same problem and someone had stuck this in intently. As no one else has come forward I think it's unlikely.
"I have been in touch with Kinder who have given me full faith it will be fully investigated to determine if it was made with the egg - which I since think is unlikely - after they explained the production line and metal detectors used."
She posted a message to her friends on Facebook to watch out:
"Feel absolutely sick to my stomach. Sitting opening Isabelle's favourite egg with her and this needle's inside. Scary thing is I let her bite the outside first. I've been on the phone to ASDA and having it sent away to see how it got there. Hope its just a machine error and not some sicko targeting kids. PLEASE CHECK YOUR EGGS!!!!" Vikki said in the post.
"This is a post for alerting people to check any Easter eggs for safety for any foreign objects. Negative comments will be deleted and idiots blocked. I will leave the investigation up to the professionals."
Asda has given a statement to the Sun: "We want to help get to the bottom of what could have happened so we've sent the egg back to Ferrero for a full investigation and will keep Mrs Maguire-Grant up to speed on the outcome, as well as refunding her purchase."
