Angry shoppers have terrified Aldi, Tesco and Sainsbury’s over their ‘disappointing’ chocolate Easter eggs.
An outraged Aldi shopper from the UK sued the brand on Twitter this weekend after discovering their milk chocolate treat was mouldy.
The social media user urged other customers to carefully check their chocolate and shared a photo of them holding up their rocky road flavored egg.
According to the product description, the egg – from Aldi’s Choceur brand – is “loaded” with pieces of marshmallow, honeycomb and pieces of pretzel.
Because the cardboard box had a plastic window on the front, the customer could see the pretty pink chocolate “drizzle” on top of the egg when they bought it.

But after opening the box over the weekend, the customer was shocked when he saw the chocolate in the bottom of the egg was moldy.
They begged, “Mouldy Easter egg from Aldi. Make sure you check yours.’
After tagging the brand in the tweet, Aldi UK assured the customer that they would be happy to refund their money.
They replied, “I’m sorry to see this, please feel free to return the packaging and proof of purchase to the store for a full refund at your convenience.”
A spokesperson told Femail: ‘While this is very rare, incidents like this can occasionally occur if the packaging is damaged at some point before the product is consumed.
“We apologized to (the customer) and offered him a full refund.”
In addition, another customer was frustrated to discover that their Tesco Easter egg was nothing like how it was advertised on the box.
The Twitter user had bought the Cluckie the White Choc Chick – which contains no milk, wheat or gluten – from Tesco’s Free From range.

Yesterday, the customer was furious to discover that their chocolate chick appears to have been crushed during production.
They shared a photo on Twitter and angrily wrote: ‘Thanks Tesco. I’m really looking forward to eating my only egg…”
A Tesco spokesperson told Femail: ‘We are sorry to hear this.
“If a customer is not satisfied with a product, they can always return it to us for a full refund.”
Meanwhile, two customers have killed Sainsbury’s after discovering a mistake with their £3.50 Belgian milk chocolate eggs.

However, another customer saw the funny side of it and joked that the shape made it “more convenient” to eat
After breaking open their cartons, customers were stunned to discover that the hollow eggs appeared to have collapsed on themselves during production, leaving a hole in the middle.
“How disappointing,” said one. “I just opened my husband’s Easter egg to find this!”
The second customer, however, was equally stunned, but determined to see the funny side of it.
They tagged the brand and added, “I just opened my Easter egg… I don’t know what happened to it, but I must say it’s more convenient to eat this way…”
The brand responded: ‘Sorry for the damaged Easter egg. Can you send us a DM with the account’s full name, address, zip code and email address? I’ll look into this for you.’
Femail has approached Sainsbury’s for additional comment.
