SHOPPERS who are fortunate to snap up a ‘Too Good To Go box’ from Aldi normally can’t rush online to show it off quick enough.
The boxes, which cost just £3.30, are put together to stop quality, unsold products from going to waste – and they’re “worth at least £10.”
However, instead of receiving a variety of produce, Leah Smith, from Hamilton in Scotland, showed off the eight packets or ‘mixed leaf’ salad that she received that were due to go off the day.
Alongside the image, she joked: “Got an Aldi too good to go back.

Leah also shared several snaps of some of the other items she received in the box, which include a packet of radishes, one green pepper, eight panini rolls and pak choi.
However, turning creative, she decided to make use of what she had and rustled up lettuce soup by blending the salad leaves with garlic and cream – and it looked pretty decent.
The post, which has racked up over 1.4 million views, totally divided opinion online.
“This happened to me before… abundance of spring onions,” wrote one.

A second joked: “I’d probably just leaf it in future.”
A third commented: “Wow. I would be livid.”
Meanwhile, a fourth added: “That is devastating.”
Elsewhere, others suggested Leah should be grateful for what she has, or, should’ve checked the box before taking it home.
“You could have asked for a refund in your TGTG you didn’t HAVE to take it…” noted one.
Another agreed: “You can reject them when you go and pick them up, you have to swipe on the app in front of a member of staff to confirm you’ve picked it up and can reject it there.”
An Aldi spokesperson commented: “We apologise to Ms Smith that, on this occasion, her Too Good To Go bag did not include a variety of different products.
“We have been in touch with the store to remind them of the need to put a mix of products in the bags.”
