Horrified parents reacted badly to an organisational error at an Australian school: A Mother’s Day function turned ugly when kids and their families were handed packages of x-rated chocolates, according to

Whoops! Someone mixed up the bags!

The offending articles included confectionary shaped like penises, breasts and buttocks- all allegedly novelty sweets left over from a previous function at the school which was organised as a fundraiser for Mother’s Day.

The surprise gifts inspired reactions ranging from shock to disgust, as the kids opened the packages and handed over the sex-themed treats to their parents.

According to the school, the school had been unaware of the novelty candies- the Department of Education stated that the packages were “prepared for parents, by parents”.

A woman who attended Friday's function said she watched on, "absolutely disgusted", as children were given the chocolates.

"My nine-year-old grandson gave this zip-lock bag to me, put it in my lap and said to me, 'You've got a willy in there Nanny'," she said.

"Then I had a three-year-old sit down next to me and she said, 'Hey, what's this?' She had this brown chocolate shaped like a penis and was about to eat the top off it.

"I told her she had better go and talk to her mother."
