Social media users spot crafty use for tote bag

You never know what you’re going to find when you head down the middle aisle at Aldi stores – even if you’ve studied the weekly specials guide. But one item that has caused a social media stir is Aldi’s $24.99 tote bag, which was released last month and is only available in Australia.

The tote bag looks like any other bag on the outside, but when you take a closer look, you see that it has a sneaky little drinks dispenser at the bottom that operates via a refillable bag. Social media users were quick to point out that it was perfect for carrying alcohol without being obvious about it, considering it as essentially a means to cleverly conceal a wine cask bladder. Security staff just might need some extra training to spot this crafty way to take alcohol into events.

And why is it available only in Australia? We’ll leave you to figure that out.

Well thanks very much Janelle for alerting the Fun Police at the gates.

Would be great for train travel and of course the resourceful would be selling it back in Europe :)

I don't remember which supermarket or department store had them previously but they definitely no a new idea. It may have been Aldi that had them previously.
