A bug. And inside my screen! 

No way to get it out, it died in cyberspace.

On a plane trip I was offered a piece of cake in a box.  A slip of paper packed in the box listed these ingredients:

Sweet Option Rotation
Peach Lattice Cake
Ingredients: apple 31%, peach 20%, Wheat flower 13%, sugar 12%, water 10%,
veg. Fat a oil 5%, raisins 3%, modified starch (E1422), egg 2%, starch 1%,
Sweet Whey powder 1%, Glucosesyrup 6% with added flavours & stabilisers.

The use of capitals and the spelling is theirs, not mine.

Obviously I asked the hostess for the recipe of a peach cake made of apples with at least 104% of ingredients and only 10% of water.  She first frowned, but then she did laugh.
