Woman Shocked To Find Entire Potato In A Packet Of Aldi Crisps

Woman Shocked To Find Entire Potato In A Packet Of Aldi Crisps

A woman was shocked to discover that her packet of 'Specially Selected' lightly salted crisps contained one solid potato in the bag.

Leah, from Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, was tucking into her lunch on Friday lunchtime when she made the discovery.

If you were wondering why she didn't realise that the thing inside the packet was a root vegetable it may have something to do with the fact that the 30-year-old initially bought them as a multi-pack and hadn't noticed.


The potato wasn't the only thing in the bag either because there was an actual crisp in there as well but apparently it was alone and soggy.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk, she explained: "I found a potato in my Aldi crisps today. I bought a multipack from Aldi in Huddersfield and so I didn't realise something didn't feel right as I picked up the bag.

"I was between meetings while working from home so ran to the kitchen to get a bag for me and my boyfriend."

She went on to say how her boyfriend got lucky and had a normal bag while she was left with the spud, adding: "I opened it and without looking reached into it to feel a smooth cold ball.

"I was so shocked - not even realising it was a potato - and just completely freaked out at what I'd just touched. All I got with it was one soggy crisp.

"My boyfriend was laughing away next to me smugly eating his full pack of normal crisps."

Luckily, for Aldi, the supermarket certainly isn't the first to do something like this. Back in 2019, a woman found an entire potato in her Tesco Finest crisps.

Anna Elliott, from Belfast, was attempting to enjoy a boat trip by cracking out the snacks - but as she opened the packet, she was met with the devastating discovery.

The offending sea salt and cider vinegar crisps were bought by Anna's pal Erin Savage who said: "It was my friend Anna who lifted it out of the bag, we had been wondering why the crisps were soggy."
