Aldi is known for its very reasonable prices...usually.

But one shopper was left stunned when a pack of mini sponge tarts were on sale for staggering £7,000.

Posting the Casual UK Reddit account, one Redditor, with the username 'machinehead332' shared a picture of Mr Kipling's Mini Sponge Tarts retailing for £7147.03. Yikes.

That's quite the hefty price tag (

The store had reduced the nine-pack of cakes for just 79p.

While it was clearly a typing error, fellow Redditors found the whole debacle hilarious, and were quick to jump in on the joke in the comments.

"To be fair, that is a huge discount," one wrote. "I'm fuming I spent seven grand on those last week."

"They're delicious, I had two packs," another said. "I'm now bankrupt, but it was worth it."

A third joked: "Instructions unclear, invested life savings in Mr Kipling's Sponge Tarts."

Well, we have heard they're exceedingly good...

Tyla has contacted a spokesperson from Aldi for comment.

And at the bargain price of £19.99, it's perfect for long days out in the park with your little pal!

If you're more of a cat person, then you've not been forgotten either.

As part of Aldi's new Eco Pet range, the cat egg chair has arrived - made from hand-woven natural wicker and hanging from a strong metal frame.
