A customer of discount supermarket chain Aldi had quite the surprise when he opened a packet of crisps.
Richard Bootman, 25, ripped open a packet of Snackrite steak and onion crisps only to find a whole potato – and nothing else – inside.
Speaking with BT.com, the architectural designer from Mildenhall, Suffolk explained: “I picked it up and it was airtight so I didn’t question it. At first I thought it was a ball of soggy crisps. When I realised what it was, everyone in the office laughed.“
Bootman posted images of the potato-filled packet on Twitter, and has ended up seeing his story reach the likes of Russia, India and Taiwan.
