Southland woman Wendy McMahon reckons she will never look at canned pears the same way.
The latest can she opened contained a demonic face carved into one of its contents.
However, Mrs McMahon said the shock of the find is nothing compared with the trial she has had trying to get answers out of the pears' supplier.
She bought the Budget brand can of pears from Invercargill Pak'N Save a fortnight ago and feeling "a bit peckish", she opened it, late on May 1.
She said it was when she returned to the can for a second helping that she scooped the freakish piece of fruit out......
Budget pears only give you inferior icons.
Doesn't look demonic to me, either, and I think it's rather fun. Why bother contacting the pear people? How inane.
