A mother is terribly upset after purchasing a box of chocolate hearts for her young daughter. The toy animal attached to the gift, according to the woman, has a body part that resembles the male anatomy. “When I removed the box of chocolates from the monkey I found something that should not be there.”

The woman reached out to Russell Stover/ Whitman for answers. “I gave this to my 4-year-old as a Valentine’s gift only to see this and have to take it away,” said the former St. Louis resident.

She attached a photo to her message and notified the company that she’d like to talk with the owner. The woman finds the gift outrageous and “very unprofessional.”

“My 4-year-old should NEVER have seen something like this.”
