Aldi’s Monster Claw crisps strike again as yet another customer discovers just one snack inside packet

ALDI’S notorious Monster Claw crisps have left yet another customer feeling short-changed.

Hilarious footage taken by 15-year-old Charlotte Nottage shows sister Stacey open a packet of the snacks to find just one crisp inside.

The sisters, from Churchill, Somerset, are the latest in a growing line of customers to get packets containing one snack.

Aldi promised over two years ago to investigate the cause of their underweight packets but seem to be struggling to get to the bottom of the problem.

Stacey was filmed by her younger sister as she opened a packet from the 79p multipack on Saturday.

As the video begins, 26-year-old Stacey can be seen feeling the sealed pack of crisps.

As she opens the bag and shows the empty contents to the camera, Charlotte can be heard saying: “Oh my god, there’s nothing in there!”

The pair then begin laughing uncontrollably as camera zooms inside the bag to reveal a single crisp nestled in the corner.

Monster Claw crisps are all weighed by Aldi’s supplier before being sent out. if any are found to be underweight, a reject mechanism is supposed to activate.

Stacey’s step dad Barry Nottage, next to her in the video, can be heard saying: “Pour it out.”

A flabbergasted Stacey can be heard exclaiming: “One crisp!” as she tips the pack.

The group burst into hysterics once again as a solitary “claw” tumbles out into Barry’s hand.

The footage was posted online by Charlotte with the caption: “This is why mum shops in Aldi, Not. One crisp.”

Several social media users reacted with amusement to the post.

Sophie Mears said: “Calorie free crisps.”

Jonny Reilly asked: “Is this that programme ‘Fat Families’?”

Speaking today, mum-of-one Stacey said they realised one of the bags was very light.

She said: “There were a few comments like ‘they should mark them only 1 calorie per pack’ and ‘try our new thin air flavour crisp’ bit it was mainly just utter laughter throughout the house. My 6 year old was in complete shock .”

Earlier this year, 28-year-old Jade Amy posted a hilarious video asking if Aldi were “Taking the p***” after she opened her bag to find one crisp inside.

In 2017, a complaint from social media user and mum-of-two Rhian Green prompted Aldi to issue a statement promising to investigate the incident with their supplier.

Monster Claw crisps are all weighed by Aldi’s supplier before being sent out. if any are found to be underweight, a reject mechanism is supposed to activate.

Occasionally this results in underweight packs making it through the system undetected, but these packs should be identified during manual quality control.
Aldi have since apologised for the incident.

An Aldi spokesman said: “We sell millions of packets of these crisps each year and have received very few complaints of this nature. We are sorry to hear of Ms Nottage’s experience and have offered her a full refund.”
