I don’t know about you guys, but I personally love cruising around Lidl to get an eyeful of all the weird and wonderful shit they sell in there. Any budget supermarket that can offer you a litre of aspartame-filled lemon iced tea for 17p or fermented bratwurst slices with chocolate dipping sauce is OK by me.

But we’re not here to talk about the many fascinating food items that line the warehouse shelves of these yellow and blue institutions. Instead, we’re going to go to the heart of Lidl – their notorious middle aisles. Each week, bargain buckets are filled to the brim with fascinating imported products, some of them so bizarre you can’t help but wonder if Lidl is supplied by the black market. The strangest item I’ve personally seen has been an adult-size concert guitar, which honestly isn’t even that outlandish compared to what some happy customers have stumbled across. See for yourself:

Well that’s been an eye-opening experience. If you didn’t love Lidl already, you must do now. What an interesting and varied range of items they stock. Where they get them from, fuck knows. But who cares when you can buy kilt hose for £2.42. Bargain.
