An Aldi supermarket shopper who noticed the turkey dinosaurs on sale for just £1.59 was quick to post on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group
Aldi supermarket shoppers have delighted after spotting the return of a once-shunned dinner time staple and childhood favourite.
After years of absence, turkey dinosaurs are back in stock – waiting to be eaten with a plate of chips and baked beans.
Aldi is selling nine-packs of turkey pieces shaped to look like recognisable dinosaurs such as the Tyrannosaurus rex, Stegosaurus, and Triceratops, at just £1.59 per packet.
Those who grew up in the 1990s will notice an immediate similarity to the childhood dinnertime staple dinosaur chicken nuggets, reports Glasgow Live.
A shopper 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.
One said: “They are amazing cook well in the air fryer”.
“They are lovely the kids love them I’ve tried them myself,” a second shared. A third revealed: “My son likes them and didn’t even know they was different to the more expensive ones”.

“They were a hit last night with my little one! Who is extremely fussy,” stated a fourth. “My kids LOVE these,” a fifth echoed.
A sixth simply wrote: “These are really nice”. One nostalgic shopper meanwhile said: “I used to love these were my favourite”.
“They look Roarsome,” another joked. However, not everyone in the group was a fan of the turkey product, with some consumers who purchased the item sharing their dissatisfaction.
One revealed: “These taste horrible my children refused to eat them. I tried one and realised why”.
“They are alright my boy doesn’t really know the difference,” a second indifferent shopper shared.
“Taste like school dinners,” said a third.
