Aldi shoppers go wild for return of 90s teatime staple they ate as kids

Anyone who grew up in the 90s will remember just how much dinosaurs dominated the vast majority of our childhoods.

From being obsessed with the Jurassic Park films to eating them in the shape of the classic turkey dinosaurs, we just couldn’t get enough of them.

Put the two of them together and you instantly have a childhood classic on your hands.

Which is exactly what Aldi has gone and done, as the budget supermarket is selling the classic 90s teatime staple with packaging to promote the upcoming Jurassic World Dominion movie.

The nostalgic frozen dinnertime favorite was spotted by one savvy shopper who quickly shared it online, reports Glasgow Live.

Costing just £ 1.59 per packet, fans will find nine turkey pieces in the shape of recognizable dinosaurs such as the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus, and Triceratops

The customer who noticed the food product was quick to post on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group, writing: “Turkey Jurassic World dinosaurs in Aldi £ 1.59”. Before long, the post had racked up over 1,700 likes and an astonishing 5,700 comments from fellow consumers.
