A “rude” photo of a pack of cheeky looking vegan sausages spotted by a woman at a supermarket has left social media users giggling.

“I will never be able to unsee what I saw at @Wegmans today,” Twitter user Naz Riahi wrote Saturday, tagging American supermarket, Wegmans.

“Take note,” Ms Riahi wrote alongside the image of the Vegan sausages from Beyond Meat.

The picture drew laughter from thousands of amused Twitter users for its phallic-like appearance.

More than 14,000 people commented on the image.

“That sausage does not seem excited to see you,” one person said.

“In all fairness, I would think the display case IS rather chilly...” one man wrote.

Several people thanked Ms Riahi for giving them a chuckle.

“Thank you for what has been the biggest, longest, tears-out-of-my-eyes laugh in at least five months,” one twitter user said.

The brand Beyond Meat is also sold in Australian supermarket IGA.

One Queenslander reposted Ms Riahi’s image, asking for opinions on the sausages on Facebook.

“Just wondering if anyone has tried these vegan sausages from IGA? Opinions please? Are they nice?” she asked.

“They’re willy nice,” one man was quick to respond.

“Vegan sausages… that was not my first thought when I saw them,” a woman said.

A few people suggested the supermarket change its method of displaying the sausages.

“Maybe stack them horizontally next time,” one person wrote.

Others said the image turned them off their appetite.

“Oh dear, I haven't eaten yet today and now I may never eat again,” a user wrote.

Ms Riahi responded: “It was just in an innocent grocery run, If I had to see it everyone else did too!”
