I know two mares that found an open stall door, got into the barn and proceeded to walk along the aisle opening containers and knocking things down. They ate about 5 buckets worth of treats and people snacks - wrappers and all - and were just fine. They also passed the wrappers whole.
My dog recently ate a nail file (it passed whole) and a wrapped candy bar. Everything passed through OK. As a matter of fact, we didn't even call the vet because we didn't know he had eaten those things until he was pooping them out! Not sure what other "treasures" we might be gifted with.
