Aldi UK Asked Followers to Write Aldi Poems, and the Results are Pure Gold

These Aldi Poems are sure to make you LOL!

Yeah, yeah, we know. It’s October 3. Mean Girls Day.


But unless you’re battling someone else in the middle aisle for that last Aldi wine advent calendar, there’s nothing mean about our beloved Aldi.

But in the UK, October 3 is National Poetry Day. The event is always designated on a Thursday in late September or early October. It’s a day to put the focus on poetry in schools, and teach about the beauty of the English language.

In the United States, we celebrate National Poetry Month in April.

National Poetry Day was created in 1994, and this year, Aldi UK decided to get in on the action.

On the Aldi UK Twitter account, the supermarket chain’s social media gurus posted the following:

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
You didn’t choose the Aldi life,
The Aldi life chose you.

Pretty good, isn’t it?

So then, of course, Aldi UK asked followers to get in on the game, by composing their own Aldi-inspired poetic creations.

And Aldi customers? Well, the Aldi UK customers really came through on this challenge.

The customer Aldi poems were all over the map. Here’s a simply little rhyme:

And then there’s this devoted Aldi follower, who wrote several stanzas for his poem about our beloved retailer:

This Twitter follower also mentioned the delights of the Aldi Aisle of Shame, which folks in the UK refer to as “the middle aisle.”

Or there’s this middle aisle tribute Aldi poem, complete with a GIF! Boom!

And it would not be an Aldi Twitter thread without at least one reference to the cashiers — more specifically to their fast, efficient, mysterious ways …

We love the sentiment, but we’re missing the rhyme.

And then there’s this guy, who gets bonus points simply for using the word garrulity in his Aldi poem. We had to look it up!

And when we did look up garrulity, well, we realized that this whole post basically meets the definition of “going on excessively about trivial matters.” That’s us in a nutshell!


Time to start working on our Aldi poems for April’s National Poetry Month in the U.S. See ya in the Aisle of Shame!
