British expats are rushing to Aldi supermarkets across Australia to pick up iconic British snacks such as shrimp cocktail chips, fruit pastilles and Penguin chocolate bars.

Others display boxes of Yorkshire Tea and black pudding along with bottles of Worcestershire and HP sauces.
Shoppers rely on the nostalgic treats, with many calling them the “perfect taste of home” while keeping international borders closed.

Others said they buy in bulk as much as they can carry.
“I’ve already cleared the joint at my local Aldi,” one man wrote.
“Just spent $100+ on shrimp cocktail and pickled onion chips, Worcestershire sauce, fruit pastilles, revels, shrimp and bananas, club mint, penguins, wisps, HP sauce, and black pudding!” added a second.
Another replied: ‘Me too! I just went to get a loaf of bread.’
One woman said she spent $200 on chips and chocolate and “couldn’t be happier.”

A second said she made two trips to stock up on shrimp cocktail chips after spotting them at the store.
“Definitely worth it,” she wrote.
Others tagged their friends and begged them to drive them to Aldi this weekend.
The snacks would be available at remarkably affordable prices.
One man said he paid $1.49 for a pack of six Penguin bars and just $3.49 for a box of Yorkshire tea — over $1 cheaper than the same box from Coles or Woolworths.
