This time of year is every arachnophobic's worst nightmare, because we're getting close to the start of spider mating season.

So instead of hiding away out of sight, they're just wandering around on the floor and scaring the shit out of anyone who comes across them. Thankfully Aldi's upcoming special buy has a tool for dealing with that. Read More >>

Aldi’s 3D Printer is Back in Stock

Aldi is a weird and wonderful shop where impulse buying a chainsaw when you were looking for some bread is a very real possibility. Lidl is the same, but Lidl also never stocked a 3D printer as far as I can recall. Aldi did just over 18 months ago, and now it seems they're back in stock for slightly less money. Read More >>

Aldi’s Selling Savoury Hot Cross Bun Balls Made of Stuffing

Now, with Easter on the way, it's just started selling savoury stuffing balls that are supposed to taste like a hot cross bun. Read More >>

The bad news is that they're to be replaced by the sturdier but more expensive 9p options, made from in-house recycled plastic waste. So there will still be plastic bags, but they will be different.

Being vegan is in now. While there are still those insufferable vegan snobs in the world (like a certain animal rights organisation), ditching animal-based food for vegetables is a cool thing to do. It's to the point where every company around has realised they can cash in on that market with vegan-friendly food. Now Aldi is joining them all, with new burgers that are meant to look like actual beef. Read More >>
