The $20 ALDI Easter item that's causing a frenzy

Shoppers are taking to social media to brag about getting their hands on a limited-edition ALDI item.

A Hot Cross Bun Gin Liqueur has recently hit the German supermarket's shelves to help celebrate Easter, but people have quickly realised there aren't many bottles around.

Which is why, those lucky enough to nab the coveted item are happy to show it off.

One woman posted a photo on the Aldi Mums Facebook page, writing: “Yes got one! Engadine, NSW.”

Her post quickly attracted hundreds of comments many of which read “jealous” and “jello”.

However, others took a more savage approach, instead sharing photos of their hauls after snapping up more than one bottle when finding it in-store.

“Asked mum to buy me a bottle … but she has a shopping problem,” one woman wrote in the Australian Gin Appreciation Society Facebook group alongside a photo of four bottles on her bench top.

Another shopper in Wagga shared a photo of their two bottles gloriously lined up at home.

“For $20 a bottle it’s worth a try,” she said.

The posts have attracted many jealous shoppers who are livid they haven't gotten their hands on the gin just yet.

“If only we could find one,” one person commented.

“I’ve been looking but haven’t got my hands on one yet,” another sighed.

“This is so unfair, I’ve looked everywhere,” someone else chipped in.
