    Aldi are currently selling rainbows, Bananas and cigars that look like a certain well known brand for £1.99 each.

    Gone down a storm here

    I don't know if it's the same in the US, but here they tend to do them as what they call 'special buys' and so aren't available all the time. So it's best not to get attached to something too much, you just need to go for it whilst it's available then move on :D

    Got a load of these a few weeks ago, still going down a storm in my house. Also dropped a batch at the local rescue. Think they’re nearly run out at my local Aldi now though.

    The aldi went into didn’t have them, but they have previously and hopefully will have a pet event soon. They did have some pet blankets, looked nice and soft

    Update, I'm not sure what price they were yesterday now, but I've been in today and they are 69p

    The packaging says £1.99, so even more of a bargain!!

    I wish I was near an Aldi:)

    I sent a message to my sister in the US to see if they have them at her local Aldi, she has two cats.

    I can post you some if you don't mind paying for the cost of it if they still have more?

    Thanks! But it is ok, the boys got a Yeoww banana from their SS and other catnip goodies as well.
    I just like the idea of such a good sale:) especially if the catnip is potent

    Right, I've finished a load of work things I had to do, so I'm going to Aldi now, let you know if I get anything when I get back.

    Bums - nothing good at my one. The only cat toys they had were Christmas things, like santa on a stick. They had chewy dog toys for 79p. Saw the storage boxes, and did have a look, but nothing that I need. They mainly had loads of baby stuff and cooking things (like air fryers / blenders/ washing up brushes!!!).

    Oh well at least I didn't tell Suter why I was going out - she slept through the whole event, hasn't moved and luckily isn't expecting a new toy.
