A toddler’s snack time took a disappointing turn after his mum broke open a fresh pack of biscuits to reveal some notably underwhelming content.
Breeannah Evans peeled open the bag that was supposed to be filled with Teddy Tots, only to find that it was predominantly filled with air.
There were just two little biscuits inside, much to her one-year-old son’s dismay.
Ms Evans purchased a multi-pack of Teddy Tots from ALDI at the Fairfield Forum in Sydney’s west, and thought something seemed off about one of the bags on Sunday.
After noticing it seemed a bit too light to have any biscuits inside, she opted to film as she opened it.
“I was actually surprised there was even two in there,” Ms Evans told Yahoo News Australia.
She said when her son spotted what had unfolded “he sort of looked at me funny”.
After finding humour in the situation, she shared her video to Facebook, posing the question: “But how?”.
Others joined in the fun, one suggesting she had been “put on a strict diet”.
“I’ll be crying if i had that for lunch or morning tea break at school,” someone else confessed.
“ALDI is playing jokes on people, that’s funny though,” a third said.
Another joked they must have received Ms Evan’s share because she “got a pack with double the amount”.
Several other social media users have reported similar experiences with other brands of cookies and chips.
It wasn’t the only problematic pack of Teddy Tots sold at ALDI this year, with a Queensland shopper finding a small plastic gem inside a bag purchased in February.
An ALDI spokesperson told Yahoo News Australia the mostly empty Teddy Tot packet was not up to the store’s standards.
“This is certainly not up to our standards and this customer is entitled to a full refund,” they said.
“As always, we encourage any customer who is not satisfied with any product to return to their local store.”
