A shocked Aldi shopper has revealed the strange thing that happened when she unwrapped one of the store’s ice-cream cones.

Sharing her unusual find on Facebook, the woman from Victoria said she had settled down for some “me time” when she opened the Chocolate Crowns ice cream box which she purchased from Aldi.

But what she unwrapped in the four-pack box from ice cream company Monarc was far from normal.

Surprisingly, the ice cream was seemingly double wrapped with a wrapped cone inside another fully wrapped ice cream.

“Dear Aldi what the... is that?” she wrote alongside a picture of her weirdly wrapped ice cream.

“I don’t know if the whole box like that.”

Aldi find considered lucky by shoppers

Her bonus cone find both delighted and perplexed fellow Aldi shoppers who were seriously stunned by the unusually wrapped cone.

“I don’t understand what I’m looking at?” one baffled person said.

“It’s an ice cream babushka?” another asked.

“A cone... In a cone, what's inside the wrapper,” questioned a third.

Simply put, one Aldi fan called the mishap “Coneseption” while others thought the strange “bonus cone” find was extremely lucky.

“Buy a lotto ticket... that’s some luck!!” one person said.

“Probably the best thing I have ever seen,” added another.

Surprising find in tin of tomatoes

This isn't the first time a shopper has spotted a packaging mishap in a supermarket product.

Melbourne shopper Shell McKenzie told Yahoo News Australia she was shocked when she opened a tin of tomatoes that contained no tomatoes at all.

Instead, the sealed tin was full of water.

Shell said she had purchased the Woolworths Essentials brand diced Italian tomatoes as part of her online order.

"It was delivered to my workplace," she explained.

"My cook opened it and was shocked it was filled with water… we bought others that were fine."

A Woolworths representative quickly responded to Shell's odd find on Facebook.

"We're sorry to see you've received a can of diced tomatoes filled with water. We can imagine the surprise this would've caused when you opened it," the spokesperson said.

"We'd like to look into this for you but do need to grab some details. Can you please let us know the store of purchase, the expiry date and the batch information?"

Shell added that a Woolworths staff member also contacted her for the product details and the person she spoke to was just as shocked as she was.

"I spoke with them on the phone and they were shocked and offered a refund and a $10 goodwill credit," she said.

"They have no idea how it happened."
