“We can’t even defend this one”

People on the internet are having a bit of fun with the suggestive shape of Easter-themed marshmallows being sold in a supermarket.

On March 2, Twitter user @missviaborsi, whose real name is Viola Borsi, shared a picture she took on a recent trip to an Aldi in Manchester, England. In the tweet, which has since been viewed more than 6 million times, the shopper found something with her Dominion-branded “Marshmallow Bunnies and Chicks” bag.

“I’m sorry, Aldi, but that’s not a rabbit,” wrote Borsi along with a picture of the said confection. Although this – erm, package – is small, the shapes inside don’t look like Easter bunnies and chicks, but rather something much more… shall we say… phallic (which reminds us of Target’s unintentionally racy Christmas cookies from 2020).

Users agreed with Borsi and went to the comments section to learn about the scandalous form of the grocery store offer.

“I’m trying so hard (hehe) to see how these bunnies could even remotely resemble, but I just don’t see it.” answered a user on Twitter.

“Is that a bunny, or are you just a little too excited to sell these?” joked another tagging the official Aldi twitter and containing lots of crying emojis.

“Maybe the ‘ch’ should be a ‘d’ and it’s a misprint”, tweeted another user along with a shrug emoji.

A few people on the thread shared pictures of other accidentally racy foods they bought, and some admitted they bought the exact same marshmallows without noticing the racy resemblance.

“I bought them for my 7 year old daughter!” shouted a Twitter user adding a pair of flushed face emojis to his tweet. “Oops.”

Aldi UK did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Still, the chain, which is the UK’s fourth largest supermarket with 990 stores in the country, definitely has a sense of humor about the whole thing.

“We can’t even defend this one” wrote the official Aldi UK account in a rewrite of Borsi’s original image.

Aldi UK continued to enjoy the whole debacle, responding to several cheeky tweets. If a Twitter user recommended They place the treats “in the specials as adult toys,” the account jokingly replied.

“I’ve read some of these wild comments and suggestions,” said Aldi UK answered. “Speechless Andy, speechless!”

For her part, Borsi says she is surprised by the attention her tweet is getting.

“Well, I’m not going to lie, it was my brother who actually put it in the cart,” Borsi tells TODAY.com via direct message. “We were at the checkout when I noticed the shapes and what they were supposed to represent.”

Borsi, 25, joked that even though they’re both adults (he’s 32), she and her brother “like snacks” and stock their shopping cart with all sorts of goodies.

She says her brother also bought her strawberry sticks, candies and rainbow stripes, but it was the marshmallows he picked up that were of particular interest.

“I just posted (not even tagged [Aldi]didn’t even think about it) to think that me and my friends are going to have a lot of laughs here on Twitter,” says Borsi, adding that they ended up buying the marshmallows, which they thought were fine.

“I didn’t expect that at all!” Borsi says about the reaction to her photo, adding that it went viral after Aldi reacted to the picture. She says she saw the image popping up all over the internet this week, and even got memes sent to her by friends she had all the way to the Netherlands. “People are still breaking out.”

While the bunnies and chicks don’t appear on Aldi’s website in the US – fortunately or unfortunately – they will still be available for sale in the UK anytime soon.

“This is one of our seasonal items so it’s only available while stocks last and judging by the comments it seems like everyone is rushing to the stores to buy them for some reason,” Aldi UK tweeted. “So better be quick!”
