In these turbulent times, there is a heap of mistrust among snack munchers. The sugar tax has seen several cherished treats modification their formulas, whereas others have shrunken down their offerings – keep in mind once the form of Toblerones modified and everybody lost their shit?
However, Aldi has very taken the biscuit, merchandising a packet of Monster Claws with only 1 Monster Claw inside; sure as shooting the minimum demand of a packet with Monster Claws written on that is that it contains a minimum of 2 of aforesaid Monster Claws?
The unlucky recipient of the snack was Julie Higgins, from Manchester, UK, WHO recorded herself gap the packet when noticing that it did not sound correct as she picked it up. Lo and lay eyes on, it had been disclosed there was only 1 claw within the bag, and Ms Higgins may be detected spoken communication, ‘they taking the piss?’… it is a truthful question.

“Definitely been postpone shopping for them once more.”
Aldi has since apologised to Ms Higgins.
A voice said: “We have apologised to Ms Higgins for any inconvenience caused and have raised this with our provider.”
In defence of Aldi, it’s a cracking thought, a munchable crisp within the form of a monster’s foot. Shame they could not consider AN rhyming name for them tho’.
