Package-in! Woman is speechless after finding a whole ‘soggy’ potato and NO chips in a bag of lightly salted Aldi
- Leah, from Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, bought multipack chips from Aldi
- The 30-year-old claims that one package contained nothing but a ‘soggy’ whole potato
- Through experience she was ‘paniced’ about what she had touched unexpectedly
A woman hoping to eat some chips for lunch was speechless after opening a package she bought at a local supermarket and only finding a whole “soggy” potato.
Leah, 30, who lives in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, explained that she hadn’t noticed any unusual shape or weight when she bought a multipack of chips from Aldi.
It wasn’t until she sat down to eat chips as part of her lunch while working from home that she noticed that one of her packets was filled with a single “soggy” potato.
She told her shock to the… Subway, saying, ‘I opened it and without looking inside I reached for it to feel a smooth cold ball.

“I was so shocked—I didn’t even realize it was a potato—and I was just totally freaked out by what I’d just touched. All I got was a soggy crispy sandwich.’
Leah explained that between meetings, she ran to the kitchen to get herself and her boyfriend a packet of chips.
She said her boyfriend was left hysterical as he blissfully ate his full packet of crisps, leaving her with nothing – wisely choosing not to nibble on the surprise potato.
The designer shared a photo of the potato in its crisp packaging, which shows it was lightly salted to its intended taste before being sealed and shipped to the supermarket.

It’s not known how the potato ended up in Leah’s potato chip package, which arrived just days after Dr David Boyce, 38, a physics teacher at Uppingham School in Rutland, claimed to have found a whole potato in his bag of Kettle Chips.
Post to Twitter, he wrote: ‘My mind went completely blank. At first I thought ‘how is this even in here?’ and then I thought ‘what a champion, this little man is a survivor – the little potato that refused to be a potato chip.’
Richard Bootman, 25, previously claimed to have had the same experience with a bag of Snackrite steak and onion chips from Aldi.

The architectural designer from Mildenhall, Suffolk, had opened his chips to the amusement of his colleagues.
He joked to MailOnline, saying, “We couldn’t believe it. It is likely that I will buy them again – brand does not bother me with chips. But I’ll feel the package before I open it.’
