Could this be the best invention ever?
Aldi, the undisputed king of random purchases, has pulled out all the stops with its new ‘sunshade’ loungers for dogs.
Admittedly, the timing could be better, what with the constant showers and hail storms happening across Greater Manchester at the moment.
But, as you might have heard, we are expected to experience a much-needed heatwave next month, with the Met Office expecting temperatures to (hopefully) soar to 22C maximum and 16C at the minimum by June 16th.
So, in true British fashion, people across the country have been frantically preparing for that rare spell of warm and sunny weather with last minute BBQ and paddling pool purchases.
Yet while Brits have been rejoicing at the news, their pets may be a little less impressed.
It’s no secret that dogs and cats with longer fur struggle enormously in the country’s rare spells of hot weather, with many preferring to stay indoors rather than sunbathe in the gardens with their owners.
But fear not! Aldi has gone the extra mile to provide the sun-deprived pets of Britain with the summer accessories they didn’t know they needed.
Enter: The Sunshade Dog Bed.
In what could possibly be the most middle-aisle product ever created, your four legged friends will enjoy the warm(ish) weather like never before.
The bed, which boasts a protection of UPF 50, is designed to keep pets cool and elevated off the ground and comes with a removable sun canopy that provides shade and protection from any glare.
Easily portable, the bed also comes with a handy carry bag, ideal for owners who are out and about.
With a price of just £19.99, this bed is a steal.
And that isn’t all Aldi is doing for the uncomfortably warm pets of the nation – they also offer a lightweight Pet Cooling Towel at just £2.99, and a Dog Car Seat for £9.99.
All items are available online and in store from today, May 20th, just in time for the impending heatwave.
Aldi is now selling a ‘churros with chocolate’ flavoured gin and it looks so good
Get down to your local Aldi immediately
Aldi has knocked it out of the park this week with the launch of their ‘churros with chocolate’ flavoured gin.
Yep, it’s the churros and gin combo you never knew you needed.
Now, there’s no disputing the fact that the combination of churros and melted chocolate is definitely one of the more elite desserts out there – but have you ever envisioned chocolate churros whipped up into an alcoholic treat?
Probably not – but, as always, Aldi is on hand to make your chocolatey-boozy dreams come true.
The Churros with Chocolate Gin Liqueur, made by The Infusionist and stocked by Aldi, was brought to the attention of the internet by the food blogging Instagram account, Kevs Snack Reviews.
Of course, Instagram users were very impressed by the new boozy offering, with one writing: “Need to get it for the next cocktail night,” and another tagging their friend while noting: “We need to get our hands on this one.”
Admittedly, this gin may be a little bit sweet for some, but picture it in a gin espresso martini or as a twist on a pornstar martini.
I’ve convinced you, haven’t I?
Priced at £7.99 the chocolate churros gin liqueur is available both online and in stores, joining the likes of Lemon Drizzle Cake gin liqueur, Raspberry Jam Donut gin liqueur, and Salted Caramel Cupcake gin liqueur.
