‘Boy Meets World’ Star Danielle Fishel’s Husband Found Shrimp in His Cereal

Like most adults in the GenX/Millennial cusper age group, I have an unreasonable love for children’s breakfast cereals. Cinnamon Toast Crunch is normally pretty high on my list; it’s not Cocoa Pebbles but it’ll do in a pinch.

Danielle Fishel, the Boy Meets World romantic lead who didn’t start doing porn, and her husband Jensen Karp are also both apparently fans of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, though maybe not anymore.

Karp appears to have found Cinnamon Toast Shrimp bits in his breakfast.

That looks a lot like shrimp tails covered in whatever chemical concoction of deliciousness they put on Cinnamon Toast Crunch to me.

Karp is having the shrimp’s DNA tested, so we’ll soon know not only if it’s shrimp but where it’s from. It’s basically like 23andMe for shrimp. Those shrimp are definitely looking to tell people they’re part manatee.

For his part, Karp has been entirely reasonable and frankly hilarious about this.

This story has even more bizarre moments like General Mills asked him to take the cereal to the police.

Now, as funny as this is, and it’s really, really funny, this sort of cross-contamination could cause some serious issues. For starters, Cinnamon Toast Crunch is both Kosher and Halal, while shrimp is neither of those things. I’m not a religious person but someone who is religious would rightfully be furious about this.

Even more seriously, though, is that shellfish allergies aren’t uncommon as allergies go. If the wrong person had gotten this, they could have had a serious allergic reaction.

Luckily, someone with a shellfish allergy didn’t get that box.

That wild set of coincidences is who got this box.

Mythical Chef Josh, the guy who makes all the weird food that Rhett and Link eat on Good Mythical Morning, made Cinnamon Toast Crunch crusted shrimp. Because of course he did.

I am on the edge of my seat waiting to hear the results of the very important shrimp DNA tests, honestly.
