We’ve all seen the feud between M&S and Aldi to do with Colin the Caterpillar and more of our favourite sweet treats but, apart from a lot of drama, some good has come out of the drama that has recently occurred on Twitter.
Supermarkets from across the UK have been joining in by posting some very amusing Tweets, showcasing their reactiveness to having a bit of harmless fun on social media. Here, the Absolute Digital Media team have rounded up the top 7 Tweets from some of our all time favourites.
With the news that Lurpack hits £9.35 in a major supermarket, Lidl hit back with the cost of Danpak priced at 77% less.

Aldi isn’t one to shy away from what’s happening, quote Tweeting one of their customers on their birthday, hinting at the Caterpillar feud.
Happy Birthday Gerald! Have you got a cake yet? We may know someone who can sort you out🐛👀 https://t.co/8mAmpW05mO

Morrisons also shared their thoughts on the situation, pointing out that their caterpillar cake, Morris, had been left out.
When you find out your friends have a group chat without you 💔 #whataboutMorris

Not to mention Co-ops involvement…
We feel your pain, it’s the 2nd time we’ve been left off the invite list. We call for co-operation for all caterpillars. 💙 #FreeCuthbert

Moving far away from caterpillars, a lot of Sainsbury’s fans noticed the resemblance of the supermarkets uniform to Beyonce’s Ivy Park collection that was released in 2020, Tweeting:

In an amusing response to someone asking how many retweets they would need to use the Tesco Mobile Network, Tesco Mobile responded:
