Aldi fans are divided over new-in Easter treats…some say they look rank & over-priced but others are desperate for a bag
WITH Easter not far away, many high-street chains have begun stocking huge collections of sweet treats.
Popular supermarket Aldi are no exception, but shoppers have recently been left divided over the chain’s new-in Easter sweets.
While some think the sweets look great and are desperate to get their hands on a bag as an alternative to a standard chocolate egg, others thought the sweet treats looked “rank” and were far too over-priced.
One bargain hunter, Caitlin Gibson recently took to Facebook to show off the new-in Easter treat.
Taking to the social media platform to share the new-in Aldi buy, Caitlin posted a picture of her supermarket find in the private group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, which has 2.2million members.
She said: “Aldi Easter Sweets. £6.99 for 1kg.”
The large back of Easter sweet mix instantly got social media users talking.
While some were impressed with the huge bag of treats, containing sweets shaped as eggs, carrots and even some chocolate mini eggs, others weren’t as eager to pick up a bag.
Caitlin shared her post just 11 hours ago, but it has already racked up 624 likes and 342 comments.
Many shoppers were very eager to get themselves a bag of sweet treats.
One person said: “I fancy these.”
Another added: “I need these!”
A third commented: “I want some.”
However, many others weren’t so keen and were quick to share their thoughts in the comments.
One shopper posted: “My Aldi had them tonight but I thought it was a rip off for £6.99 just because they are Easter themed.
“The bag really doesn’t look that big when you see it.
“Would love to know if anyone bought one if they do actually weigh 1kg.”
A second chimed in: “Saw these the other day, definitely not worth £6.99.”
Whilst someone else noted: “I didn’t think they looked very nice.”
Meanwhile, another person claimed: “They look rank.”
