It was just a normal day for Archie Chisnall from St Helens, Merseyside. He was settling down one afternoon to prepare his lunch – consisting of Aldi’s Champion Steak Cut Chips (£1.05, 1.5kg) but little did he know he was in for a big surprise!
As he readied his chips for the oven, he noticed one of them looked extremely spud-tacular in length. Measuring a whopping 7.1 inches, Archie is now the proud world record holder for the world’s biggest chip!
Archie commented: “As I put them on the tray, this huge chip came out. I thought, wow, that’s big. I was in awe and thought that I’d measure it. From its length, I thought it must be a record. I checked and saw the story from May about one that was a tad shorter than mine, so it was!
A spokesperson at Aldi commented: “We are truly honoured to have played our part in helping Archie to set such a prestigious world record. A great example of the spud-tacular quality and value available at Aldi!”.
Want to find out if you’re as lucky? Why not head down to Aldi and pick up a pack for yourself? If you keep your eyes ‘peeled’, you might be the next record holder!

Aldi is set to launch a supermarket-first, picnic-perfect combination - Guaca-Houmous (£0.79, 150g). Arriving in aisles this week (5th August), the delightful dip is an exciting new mash-up of two popular flavours, as part of the limited-edition Summer of Celebration range at Aldi.
The creamy blend of chunky avocado pieces and classic rich houmous is a dunker’s dream, bringing a tasty twist (and talking point) to summer picnics!
Delicious dipped with Specially Selected Gourmet Sea Salt Crackers (£0.85, 185g) or smothered over a thick slice of a soft Village Bakery The Honey Soaked Seeded Bloomer (£1.19, 800g), shoppers desperate to try the two-for-one taste will have to be quick, as the limited edition, supermarket-first won’t be around for long! Available in stores from 5th August, the dip is also a brilliant bargain at just 79p a pot.
Aldi’s The Deli Guaca-Houmous is available in-stores from 5Th August while stocks last.
