Aldi drops brand new Gonk characters in its middle aisles – but it's the rat character that has everyone talking | The Sun11/03/2023
GONK season is finally upon us!
The faceless characters that look like gnomes have been cropping up in British homes during the festive season for years now.
And lucky for bargain hunters, Aldi has introduced some to its middle aisle as part of this week’s Specialbuys.
Shoppers will need to be quick, though. As with all Specialbuys: once they’re gone, they’re gone.
Gonk-lovers have flocked to social media to share their excitement over the plush characters the budget supermarket has newly released.
They include a Gingerbread Rat, Green Sequin Gonk, Red Candy Cane Gonk and Blue Sequin Gonk.

“I adore the rat,” another beamed.
