Frugal shoppers went wild after Aldi announced the launch of an innovative and cost-effective new way for customers to get their milk.

Aldi fans are in the midst of a meltdown after the retailer announced the introduction of an innovative new product as part of its special buying programme.

Shoppers avoiding supermarket price hikes by taking a DIY approach to their staples have gone crazy for a new milk maker.

The Crofton Plant-Based Milk Making Kit was launched as part of the retailer’s Special Buys program from Saturday 25th June.

News of the product, which comes complete with a wooden spoon and pestle, has been welcomed by hundreds of frugal consumers looking to save money on their weekly milk bills.

The milk maker was advertised for $29.99, but Aldi said that was only while supplies last, with product levels expected to vary from store to store.

“Despite our careful planning, we apologize if selected items may sell out on day one due to unexpectedly high demand,” Aldi warned.

“In the event of unexpected high demand, Aldi Stores reserves the right to limit purchases to reasonable quantities.”

Cheerful shoppers raved about the launch after it was shared on a popular Facebook group.

Many have commented on how much money they could save by making milk themselves.

“It’s so much cheaper! Organic soybeans are very cheap,” one wrote in a comment.

“Oat milk costs approx. 30c/litre to make yourself, as opposed to the $2-4/litre to buy here in Australia,” said another.

Some were more skeptical of the device, arguing that it was easier to mix plant milk ingredients and then squeeze it through a bag of nut milk.

“Why not just use a regular mixer and milk bag? So much cheaper and easier. And no extra appliances in the kitchen if you already have a blender,” one wrote.

“Do this! I’ll use my blender and milk bag. Faster, creamier and smoother,” said another.
