A customer who had hoped to enjoy a salad at Burger King just across the border in Thionville was in for an unpleasant surprise - or free proteins, depending on how you look at it.

There was not only salad in the salad bowl. On Thursday, a Burger King customer discovered an entire grasshopper in his Caesar salad.

"Here's what I found in my salad... Repugnant," Benjamin laments as he shows the dead insect lying in his salad bowl.

The young man told the Républicain Lorrain newspaper that the management team offered him ice cream as compensation. The fast-food restaurant apologized and promised to report the incident to its supplier.
