Aldi's crisp flavours are too notions for their own good

“Confit Duck and Boozy Berry.”

ALDI, WE LOVE you, but it’s time we had a stern chat about one of your offerings — namely your notions crisps.

Look, we’re all for a fancy crisp every now and again.

We’ve been known to eschew a lowly bag of Tayto in favour of something more indulgent. You only live once and all that.

But some of your crisps are frankly… a little much.

‘Tis far from hand-cooked sweet port and Stilton crisps we were raised.

Ah, remember the days when Thai sweet chilli crisps were considered ‘exotic’?

Those days are behind us because now it’s all about Gourmet Confit Duck & Boozy Berry crisps.

Does Aldi think we’re all living in Downton Abbey or something?

Who asked for black truffle-flavoured crisps? Because frankly, that sounds like something you’d try at a fancy party and then spit into your napkin.

Why not just do a craft beer-flavoured crisp while you’re at it?

We’ll stick to the Meanies for now.

(Do the gin and tonic crisps get you buzzed? Asking for a friend.)
