Is this a cruel or genius Halloween prank?
Trick or treat... be careful what you eat.
This Halloween pranksters are dipping Brussels sprouts in chocolate and then presenting them to unsuspecting friends.
Whether you're a foodie or a picky eater, everyone has foods that they loathe and find inedible. And high up on the list of polarising food for most people is Brussels sprouts.
So just imagine popping a chocolate into your mouth, expecting a sweet treat, and instead biting into a cold, hard, tiny, green cabbage.
The cruel prank has gone viral on Twitter and, naturally, some people have taken issue with it.
Be careful out there this Halloween, folks.
