A HILARIOUS video shows the moment a man opens a packet of Aldi crisps to discover there’s only one crisp inside the packet.
Mark Murray bought a multipack of Cheese Curls from Aldi in Lowestoft, Suffolk.
The 26-year-old from the nearby market town of Beccles suspected one of the packets – supposedly containing 12g of Cheese Curls was seriously underweight.
The clip starts with Mark holding the yellow packet and commenting: “Got a packet of crisps from Aldi, a multipack, you can see there’s air in it, it’s not been opened.”
Mark then opens the packet, which he upends, dropping a single curl on to the table.
He then turns the opened packet to the camera to prove no other curls are lurking inside.
He comments: “One Crisp. Thanks Aldi.”
He uploaded the video on Facebook yesterday (Tues) after posting on Aldi’s facebook page.
He sarcastically captioned the footage, “Full up from my lunch now.”
On social media, Jason Downing said: “This is the best thing ever.”
Robert Daley commented: “And that’s why you don’t shop at Aldi! S***e!”
Julia Murray said: “Hahahah I can’t stop laughing ‘cor, one crisp, thanks Aldi.’”
Carne Brighton said: “This would literally ruin my day.”
Mark, a forklift driver, today described his reaction.
He said: “It was disbelief to be honest, at the same time it was hilarious.
“I had put the video on the Aldi UK Facebook page and they got back to me with an automated message about coming back with a receipt and replace them.
“I couldn’t be bothered with doing that over a packet of crisps though. I just see the funny side of it.”
Aldi have confirmed they are looking into the issue.
A spokesman said: “We have apologised to Mr Murray for any inconvenience caused and have raised this with our supplier.”
This is not the first time the contents of a food package has lived up to the expectation.
Earlier this year, a woman was left feeling “robbed” after opening a bag of Tesco chicken burgers, only to find that one of the burgers was the size of a goujon.
Kirsty-Ann Campbell, Runcorn, Cheshire, was preparing dinner for herself and her family and wanted to use the burgers as part of the meal.
The 31-year-old was then horrified to discover that one of the “burgers” was seriously lacking in any size.
