Easter is coming up this weekend and people around the world will indulging in the world of chocolate bunnies, chocolate eggs and a ton of other chocolate Easter candies. But what you might not have heard is that the FDA allows companies to sell food containing trace pieces of insects.

According to ABC News, the average chocolate bar contains Eight Insect Pieces.
And it gets worse! They say that people who are allergic to chocolate generally aren't reacting to the cocoa - they are actually reacting to the ground-up cockroach and other insects that have invaded their chocolate.
