Aldi’s ridiculously big 48-glass prosecco bottle has made a comeback for Christmas

The perfect bottle for any festive party.

If you love prosecco then it goes without saying you’ll love this absolutely ridiculous bottle of the stuff from Aldi.

The budget supermarket is bringing back its mammoth six litre bottle of Giotti Prosecco DOC Methuselah, and they’re guaranteed to go down well at any party this Christmas.

Their Methuselah contains the same as eight regular bottles, but you’re probably going to need a bit of help getting it popped, or actually pouring it.

According to Aldi the prosecco is ‘light, fun and frothy with notes of parma violets, ripe pear and papaya’, and they say the bottle ‘is sure to impress your guests this Christmas.’

And the reviews are very positive, with one happy shopper saying: “I got the very big bottle of prosecco for a friend’s wedding Anniversary/Christmas present and it has gone down a treat.”

Another added: “I bought this almighty bottle for Christmas last year and now ordering another for a 50th birthday. It did take 2 people to pour it until it was half gone, but it’s an impressive bottle for a party. Just pray it’s cold enough outside to chill unless you’ve got a suitably sized fridge.”

Aldi

Because it’s such a beast, you can only buy one bottle per person – which is probably a good thing as it’ll set you back a whopping £99.99.

It’s only available online, so head over to the Aldi site to grab yourself one – they sold out in 24 hours last year so you best be quick.

Out of all the weird and wonderful inventions for dogs these days, bacon-scented bubbles could be the one that reigns supreme.

It’s no secret that bacon is the way to the hearts of all pooches far and wide, so this new toy could be a real winner when it comes to being the favourite dog-parent.

The new scented bubbles come courtesy of Yorkshire-based pet product manufacturers Pets Pad, who have perfected a non-toxic, tasty and deliciously-scented bubble mixture perfect for both dogs and children.

The bubble mixture can be used with the accompanying hand-held wand or, alternatively, can be poured inside bubble machines to keep your dogs entertained all day.

And the reviews for the bubbles have been glowing, with a now-viral Facebook post having been inundated with thousands of comments from happy pet owners and parents.

Commenting on the post, which was shared into the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK page, one social media user wrote: “Can confirm, my dog adores these.

“The bubbles are edible too, so it’s safe if your dog snaps at them and catches a few!”

Another commented: “Been using this for months on my dog Marley [sic] he’s obsessed with them it gives him so much exercise chasing the bubbles up and down the garden”.

Though a third pet owner warned: “Just don’t use them in the house… Bacon scented carpet for days”.

Pots of the Bacon Scented & Flavoured Dog Bubbles are available to buy online from Pets Pad now, and cost from just £2.25. Order yours here.
