Perhaps the dish was actually a ‘jollyband’, quipped another netizen. However, finding the object in our fried chicken will likely make us feel anything but jolly.


MS News has also reached out to Jollibee for comments on the incident and will update this article accordingly when they get back.

Fortunate that OP was vigilant

Kudos to the OP for being vigilant which prevented them from swallowing the piece of rubber band.

Though it remains unclear how the band found its way into the fried chicken, such incidents should be prevented at all costs.
