Mum Thinks Aldi Hand Gel's Name Can Be Misread As Something Rude

Aldi has been urged by a red-faced mum to change the font on one of its hand gels, because she claims its 'lemon fizz' range is too easy to misread as something rude.

Stacey Jane was left in hysterics during her weekly food shop at Aldi in Rustington, West Sussex, on Monday after spotting the unfortunate positioning of letters on the supermarket's product.

I'm sure you can guess what the 40-year-old thought the bottle might say, but I'll tell you anyway.

On the budget supermarket's own brand Lacura Lemon Fizz hand gel, Stacey claims its elaborate font makes the F look like a J.

Stacey claims she 'burst out laughing' in the middle of the aisle, prompting funny looks from other shoppers.

She then quickly took a photo of the bottles and shared it on Facebook with the caption: "I'm thinking that Aldi need to change their font.... I didn't think that said fizz."

However, it turns out that Stacey is far from the only customer to have been left red-faced by the lettering.

Kenny Wyatt, from Glasgow, tweeted the supermarket, also pointing out that someone 'should have double checked their font'.

He wrote: "Can't help but think Aldi should've double checked the font on their Lemon Fizz hand gel. Great for the skin apparently."

Nail technician Stacey, from Worthing, West Sussex, said: "I thought, 'Oh, that's new,' [then] looked at it and thought, 'Oh my lord.'

"Literally, I thought it was a J, I thought it said 'jizz'.

"To which I just burst out laughing in the middle of Aldi and people were looking at me like I'd completely lost my marbles."

She continued: "It was one of those things where you think I have got to take a picture and I have got to share this because it's hilarious.

"I thought people would find it so funny and it would cheer everybody up.

The mum added: "I shared it on my Facebook as well as the Aldi page and mostly people were laughing at it. They knew immediately, for sure. If they're laughing at it then they knew what I saw.

"This was the first time I had seen something like that."

Stacey said that her friends also found the situation hilarious - although on Facebook some of the commenters have joked that lockdown may be making the mum see things that weren't there.

One commenter said: "It's a clever lemon that can do that."

Another wrote: "That may say more about your mind than it does about the font."

The fact that the product in question is hand gel has made the situation all the more funny, according to Stacey, because it's a product connected to the coronavirus pandemic, but she thought that it was good to be able to laugh in the face of it.

LADbible has reached out to Aldi for comment.
