One shopper noticed the childhood favourite on the supermarket’s shelves on sale for just £1.59 and was quick to post on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group.

Before long, the post had racked up over 1,700 likes and 5,700 comments from fellow consumers.

What are the turkey dinosaurs?

Aldi is selling nine-packs of turkey pieces shaped to look like recognisable dinosaurs such as the Tyrannosaurus rex, Stegosaurus, and Triceratops.

The turkey dinosaurs price 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.

However, turkey dinosaurs were also a popular menu item.

A sixth simply wrote: "These are really nice".

Meanwhile one nostalgic shopper said: "I used to love these were my favourite".

"They look Roarsome," another joked.

However, not everyone in the comments of the post were a fan of the turkey product.

Some consumers who purchased the item shared their dissatisfaction.

“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.
