Social media users were split over Mr Thomas’ surprising find.

‘And that’s how you stop me buying donuts,’ one person said.

‘It’s a spider, big deal! It’s on the outside of the packaging!’ another person remarked. 

‘Take it home and make it your pet. Free gift with the donuts,’ someone recommended. 

Coles told Daily Mail Australia the ‘pest management’ incident was being investigated. 

‘Coles has an integrated pest management system, which primarily focuses on keeping pests out of our stores, then controlling pests should they find their way into our stores,’ a spokesperson said.

‘We were concerned to see this and have reached out to the customer to identify the store so we can ensure pest management measures are in place.’
