Aldi made a huge error on a pricing label which left customers howling after they spotted a box of bakery goodies costing over £7,000.

The cheeky blunder was posted in the Casual UK Reddit forum after a shopper noticed the unusually priced Mr Kipling treats.

The mini sponge tarts were discounted to just 79p on the large red label down from £7,147.03.

That has to be the most expensive box of tarts we’ve ever seen…

The discount would mean that the nine tarts would have had a huge £7,146.24 reduction in price.

Meanwhile, on Ocado the same pack of Mr Kipling tarts costs just £2 meaning that Aldi’s discount would save shoppers £1.21.

While the pack, containing almond and raspberry, double chocolate and coconut and lemon tarts, looks tasty it’s certainly not worth the cost of a car.

However, shoppers found the mistake hilarious and the snap quickly went viral.

The image was retweeted on Twitter over 3,000 times and received 31,500 likes.

One person commented: “Everyone, get to @AldiUK they're having a 99.9999% off sale!”

"I'm absolutely fuming at the sale in Aldi,” joked another. “That’s a huge discount, I spent £7,000 on those last week."

While it’s unclear why the mix up happened or which store the sign was erected in we’re pretty sure they never sold the tarts for seven grand…

The Daily Star has contacted Aldi for a statement clarifying the situation.

Meanwhile, if you want to pick up a pack of 79p tarts you can locate your nearest Aldi using their handy Store Locator tool.

In other news, Aldi shoppers will now be forced to pay 10p for plastic bags in a new waste-cutting scheme.
