ALDI, everyone’s favourite bargain grocery one-stop-shop has finally introduced shopping baskets. Known for throwing groceries at you at the checkout, ALDI now has baskets to slow down the bagging speed.

Although, we imagine your items will still be scanned at lightning speed.

Instead of balancing your bargains on your arms or using a trolley for five items, shoppers can pick up a blue shopping basket on the way in-store.

ALDI announced the baskets in a Facebook post on Tuesday.

“We’re rolling out baskets across all our stores, to help you with your weekly shop and dash in top-ups,” it wrote.

So there you have it. Next time you’re in need of an ALDI run, be sure to pick up a shopping basket for all your essentials.

Now, let’s hope for smaller trolleys.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
