Aldi’s notorious Monster Claws crisps have left yet another customer feeling short-changed.

Shocking footage taken by 15-year-old Charlotte Nottage shows sister Stacey, 26, open a packet of the snacks to find just one crisp inside.

The sisters, from Churchill, Somerset, are the latest in a growing line of customers to get packets containing one snack.

More than two years ago Aldi promised to investigate the cause of their underweight packets but seem to be struggling to get to the bottom of the problem.

Stacey, a mother-of-one, was filmed by her younger sister as she opened a packet from the 79p multipack on Saturday.

As the video begins, Stacey can be seen feeling the sealed pack of crisps.

As she opens the bag and shows the empty contents to the camera, Charlotte can be heard saying: ‘Oh my god, there’s nothing in there!’

The pair then begin laughing uncontrollably as the camera zooms inside the bag to reveal a single crisp nestled in the corner.

Stacey’s step dad Barry Nottage, next to her in the video, can be heard saying: ‘Pour it out.’

A flabbergasted Stacey can be heard exclaiming: ‘One crisp!’ as she tips the pack.

The group burst into hysterics once again as a solitary ‘claw’ tumbles out into Mr Nottage’s hand.

The footage was posted online by Charlotte with the caption: ‘This is why mum shops in Aldi, not. One crisp.’

Several social media users reacted with amusement to the post.

Sophie Mears said: ‘Calorie free crisps.’

Jonny Reilly asked: ‘Is this that programme ‘Fat Families’?’

Social media users joked that Aldi should advertise the snacks as 'calorie free crisps'

Speaking today, mother-of-one Stacey said they realised one of the bags was very light.

She said: ‘There were a few comments like ‘they should mark them only 1 calorie per pack’ and ‘try our new thin air flavour crisp’ but it was mainly just utter laughter throughout the house. My 6 year old was in complete shock.’

Aldi have had complaints about their Monster Claws as long ago as 2015

One Twitter user wrote: 'This is an absolute joke your Monster Claws, it's not even half a packet what are you playing at'

Aldi have had complaints about their Monster Claws as long ago as 2015. One Twitter user wrote: ‘This is an absolute joke your Monster Claws, it’s not even half a packet what are you playing at’

Earlier this year, 28-year-old Jade Amy posted a video to social media asking if Aldi were ‘Taking the p***’ after she opened her bag to find one crisp inside.

In 2017, complaints from social media users and mum-of-two Rhian Green prompted Aldi to issue a statement promising to investigate their supplier.

And the complaints logged on social media go back as far as 2015, with one user saying: ‘This is an absolute joke your monster claws it’s not even half a packet what are you playing at!’
