Aldi claims to have invented the square sausage... Scots are not happy
Aldi recently announced their 'new' creation the 'sausedge'; a square sausage patty that fits perfectly onto a slice of bread. It received heavily praise from some publications, calling it 'genuis', however, Scottish people are less impressed.
The Lorne sausage has been a staple part of a full Scottish breakfast for hundreds of years, further than that all butchers stock the product and any half-decent bakery sells a 'roll and Lorne' in the morning. It's also already available in Aldi stores throughout Scotland, which caused further confusion.
Aldi's main competitor, Lidl, took to Twitter to poke fun at the situation:
"Things Aldi also claim to have invented:
1. Irn Bru
3. The Proclaimers
4. Yer Da Selling Avon
Aldi are yet to respond to the backlash.
