LIDL has savagely roasted Aldi online after Aldi invoked the wrath of Scots when it claimed to have invented square sausage.

We reported on Tuesday how Lorne – a Scots breakfast staple for generations – appeared to have been rebranded by the discount supermarket chain as “Sausedge”.

It claimed the “patty-shaped pork has been designed to fit perfectly into sandwiches,” adding that it “allows hungry customers to throw together a butty without spending ages cutting up bangers.”

However, Aldi’s Scottish customers were quick to point out the concept has been around for generations.

Some went as far as to accuse Aldi of cultural appropriation, with even comedian Limmy wading in.

However, rival Lidl’s response topped all other responses on Twitter.

The team shared Aldi’s original Sausedge post, adding: “Things Aldi also claim to have invented: 1. Irn Bru 2. Haggis 3. The Proclaimers 4. Yer Da Selling Avon.”

Naturally, folk were left in stitched with thousands clamouring to pat Lidl on the back over its tweet.

Aldi hit back, saying: “Woah woah woah. Not claiming to have invented it. ‍ We just want to share the Lorne Love with everyone.”

An Aldi spokeswoman said the sausages, costing £1.79 for 340g, would be available for a limited time only.
