ANN SUMMERS has sold more penis shaped pasta this week than they did for the whole of last year.
The risqué retailer also revealed that their highly demanded X-rated pasta had overtaken all other items in sales this week – including sex toys and lingerie.
Yesterday (WED), the company sold out of the £5 phallic-shaped savoury on their website and in most stores across the UK.
They had been inundated with orders from panic-buying shoppers who struggled to find any form of pasta in mainstream supermarkets up and down the country.
The popular store even added the £5 snack into their sale under their three-for-two offer.
Yesterday (WED), customers were disappointed to discover that the retailer has completely sold out of the pasta, following the influx of orders.
News of the penis-pasta shortage did not go down well with social media users.
Sarah-Jane Mitchell wrote on Facebook yesterday (WED): “Good morning. Breaking news the biggest tragedy has hit yet.
“Ann Summers has sold out of penis pasta. Thanks doomsday panic buyers.
“How will I get my weekly dose of cock soup now.”
Rio Juninha Webster said: “There were legit thousands in stock a few days ago now nothing.”
Elaine Milka wrote: “Pmsl. Love it. Lidl has pasta hun.”
Ann Summers website currently states “This item is currently not available” alongside an image of the box that features a cartoon penis wearing a chef’s hat.
Online orders are thought to have increased after a Twitter user, Clare Hart, shared a snap of the pasta on the shelves on Monday.
The post attracted thousands of likes and comments from people planning to snap the pasta up.
Ann Summers have since closed their stores – however were still advertising the saucy snack as being in stock up until yesterday.
The official description on the website reads: “Our famous Penis pasta – it’s hysterical and completely delicious!
“Perfect for dinner parties, girls’ nights in or any occasion – whip up your favourite pasta dish and see if your guests notice…”
A spokeswoman today (THUR) said: “Ann Summers has sold more pasta online in the past week than in the whole of 2019 with the penis pasta being the brands top seller for the past three days and the teams are working hard to restock. “
