Queues and chaos caused by Kevin the Carrot

People stood in line outside Aldi’s across the nation from TWO A.M. in the morning to get their hands on a Kevin the Carrot, some were there for Pascal the Parsnip and each one is now listed across eBay for a decent return, well percentage wise at least. So you nabbed the carrot (small £3.99 and large £19.99) and each is listed for at least £44 and £80 – Was that worth a night on the streets?

Pascal the parsnip – evil or misunderstood?

Perhaps not quite as chaotic as the Build-a-Bear debacle in the summer when customers were clambering to buy them in an offer – later abandoned – to buy any bear for the price of their child’s age.  Their advert is really rather good, my go to Xmas ad right now though is the one for KFC!
