If you’ve found nappies from Aldi are slightly less absorbent than they used to be, you’re not alone…

Easily some of the best value single-use nappies on the market, coming in at 5p each, Aldi nappies are normally loved among parents.

However, the award-winning nappies have been changed to be less absorbent according to some unhappy parents. 

Some also claim they are actually now smaller leading to more leaks.

Aldi has denied that the new batch has less absorbency, and say they are proud of their product. 

Despite this, one mum wrote on Facebook: “I use both 4 and 4+ for my twins but opened a packet of 4+ that I bought last week and they are different from what they normally are.

“The feeling is different (softer), the green is paler and most importantly they are smaller and less absorbent (as I found out this morning as my daughter was wet through and this has never happened) than they usually are.

“There also seems to be less stretch in the fasteners.

“You can also see in the second picture that if I match up the line of the green waistband at the back, the waistband is longer but the actual absorbent ‘nappy bit’ is significantly smaller.”

One mum explained she’s had to ‘move onto Tesco Fred and Flo nappies’ because her daughter was ‘soaking through’ since around ‘a month ago’.

The store defended their product saying: “As the UK’s largest own-label nappy brand, our customers buy over a billion award-winning Mamia nappies each year.

“We made some improvements to our nappies last year, including improving absorbency and ensuring a more even distribution of fluid to give a better fit and reduce sagging.

“We’re always grateful for customer feedback, which helps with future product development.”

Have you experienced leaky Aldi nappies recently too?

Dubbed ‘Marks and Sparkle’, the festive drink is available to buy in M&S stores for just £10, and is perfect for the festive season.

According to M&S, it contains peach liqueur ‘crisp citrusy notes with a hint of pear and melon’ alongside the flakes of 22ct gold leaf.

Shoppers can pick up a bottle of the fizz for £10

M&S

“This vibrant and crisp bubbly is an alcoholic sparkling grape based beverage with peach liqueur and edible 22 Carat gold leaf to make your drink sparkle.”

Shoppers have been wholly impressed by the festive new drink, with one writing on Instagram: “Need to try this!”

Another commented: “That will look gorgeous on the Christmas table”, while a third wrote: “I bought one for my son’s teacher’s birthday present and for £10 it looks beautiful.”

Though this isn’t the only way M&S is getting into the Christmas spirit this year, with the retailer also selling a Christmas biscuit tin that magically doubles down into a festive nightlight, ideal for getting children excited for a visit from Father Christmas.

The nightlight also boasts trays of shortbread and shortbread cookies.

Shoppers couldn’t contain their excitement over the festive tin, with one person writing:“Pls [sic] M&S stop, I love it but just can’t fit more stuff in my loft”, and another commenting:“I got one of these yesterday. They’re so beautiful!”

Tesco is selling bottles of Baileys for half price in time for Christmas

It’s that time of the year again…

If you’re looking to stock up on bottles of Baileys ahead of Christmas, look no further.

To celebrate the impending arrival of the festive season, Tesco has slashed the price on all bottles of the poplar Irish liquor.

From today (November 8th), customers will be able to grab a 70cl bottle of Baileys for just £8, resulting in a massive £7.75 saving from its usual price.

However, there’s a catch. 

Only customers with Clubcards will be able to grab a bottle of Baileys for £8; those without will have to fork out the original price of £15.75.

Shoppers will also need to act fast because the offer comes to an end next week on Thursday November 14th.

Tesco’s Clubcard scheme is completely free, and offers shoppers a whole range of deals and discounts across a vast range of products.

Each time a customer spends £1 in store and online, they get one point whenever they scan their card or app with their shopping.

This could be Tesco’s path to redemption after it caused mass outrage by upping the price of its famous meal deal for the second time this year.

Last month, the supermarket announced that its meal deal now costs £3.90, an increase of 40p. And even Clubcard holders aren’t safe from the price increase this time, with the Clubcard price also increasing by 40p from £3 to £3.40.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the supermarket said: “Clubcard members will pay just £3.40 for a main, snack and drink, making our meal deal an ideal way to grab a great value lunch on-the-go. 

“And with savings of up to £3 on millions of possible combinations across our stores, including the recent addition of Costa hot drinks, and our ever-popular Christmas sandwiches which join the meal deal for the festive period, we’ve got something for every taste.”
