Aldi, the undisputed king of random purchases, has pulled out all the stops with its new two-seater egg chair.
This comes just weeks after the budget supermarket sent customers into a frenzy with its original egg chair.
Their Hanging Egg Chair, priced at a very reasonable £149, flew off the shelves when it was released earlier this year, and was just as popular when it was released again a couple of months later.
Aldi then took things one step further by releasing a cat version of the chair – as part of their new Eco Pet range, the cat egg chair was made from hand-woven natural wicker and was hung from a strong metal frame.
It was, as you can imagine, too cute for words.
But now, as their shelves remain bare of human sized hanging egg chairs, they have made a come back with not a single-seater egg chair, but a double-seater egg chair.
Aside from the larger seating design, the chair is virtually the same as the single seater version with a stylish rattan design, deep grey cushions and a sturdy frame. It also comes with a three-year warranty, which is always handy. It’s also suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
The website’s description reads: “This amazing Large Hanging Egg Chair is the ideal way to relax in stylish comfort this summer. Perfect for the patio or conservatory, this comfortable rattan effect hanging chair will be your seat of choice.
“Simply swing up your legs and make the most of that comfortable space! Pour yourself an ice-cold drink, grab a summer read and enjoy those long summer days and lighter evenings. This chair can take a maximum weight of 180kg.”
However, it won’t be available in stores at Aldi, so you’ll need to head over to the website to snap one up.
The chair is a little more expensive than the smaller version, with it being priced at £249.99.
It will be available to buy here on Sunday, July 4th.
Burger King is now selling a frozen strawberry Fanta slushy for the summer
Know anyone who’d love this?
BIG News: Burger King has made our summer dreams come true with the launch of a frozen slushy.
And, to make this news even more exciting, their slushy is made from Fanta.
Now, frozen beverages are usually reserved for American customers only, with us Brits having being cruelly deprived of the delicious frozen goodness to accompany our Whoppers. But now, our time has come.
The Frozen Fanta Strawberry is now joining Frozen Coca Cola as another refreshing choice for iced-drink fanatics.
The latest addition is available to order both in-restaurant and through the drive-thru, and will cost £2.29 for a regular and just twenty pence more, £2.49, for a large.
The new drink joins three new cheese and bacon burgers on BK’s menu, which you can view for yourself here.
Aldi is selling a massive 28oz ‘Godfather’ steak in time for Father’s Day
Do you think your dad is up to the challenge?
Aldi is launching a giant 28oz steak just in time for Father’s Day.
The bargain supermarket, famous usually for it’s random middle aisle offerings, has put all our Father’s Day woes to bed with their ‘Godfather’ rump steak, a chunkier cousin of their ‘Big Daddy’ steak.
The mammoth cut of meat weighs in at a whopping 28oz and is perfect for the whole family to feast upon – though, if he thinks he’s up for the challenge, it will make for the ideal Father’s Day treat for one.
And if, like me, you’re a little worried about your steak cooking skills, Aldi has teamed up with the Culinary Director of Gaucho Restaurants, Mike Reid to share tips on how to cook the perfect steak.
Mike, who is also a regular on BBC1’s Ready Steady Cook, said: “I would always recommend cooking a steak such as Aldi’s Godfather Rump over fire – the combination of wood and coal gives a unique, smoky flavour to meat.
“Anyone in need of some pointers should follow my simple hints and tips; a fail proof guide to getting restaurant standard steak at home – every dad’s dream!”
He has also offered some expert advice on how to cook normal-sized steaks from home – did you know that steak needs to be cooked at room temperature to ensure it cooks evenly? For this, you simply need to remove the meat from the fridge around an hour before cooking.
He also pointed out that different cuts (rump, sirloin, fillet, etc) require different cooking methods – according to Mike, the higher the fat content, the higher the initial heat you need to cook it on. If you have a leaner cut like fillet or rump, you want a gentler heat to cook over as you don’t have as much fat to be rendering.
The supermarket’s rare offering is priced at a very reasonable £7.99 and is available in stores from June 17th – just in time for the big day.
