When my son was a toddler he put my keys in one of the round cavities in our large stereo speakers from the back. Not sure how it was I found them.
Don't let the bastards cheer you up.

I have seen this right out of a 1 lb vacuum sealed pound. As i said before never noticed anything bad about them just seemed larger or like they were formed bigger or absorbed air prior to packing.

First, the pretzel situation:  Anyone with small kids may know what it's like when the kids decide to do something unusual.  My daughter hid my wedding ring once and it was YEARS before I found it and my son took a handful of small pretzels and [apparently] dropped them in the toilet to see what would happen.  They were probably goldfish pretzels and he thought they may swim away... LOL.  By the time I found them they were the size of a golf ball.  Anyway, my hops have arrived from Farmhouse and all 4 varieties look awesome and are packaged in that O2-purged, vacuum-sealed foil wrapping.  Cheers.

Was the wedding ring in the toilet?

Luckily no.  Under the cushion of a big chair in the family room!  :D
