After online pre-sales of Aldi’s giant, kilted Kevin the Carrot plush toys sold out in record time on Sunday, the nation’s favourite cuddly carrot is back and will be available from Aldi stores across Scotland this Thursday (November 28), while stocks last.
Carrot fever first swept the nation in 2016 when Kevin made his Aldi screen debut and his popularity has grown from strength to strength ever since.
This year, Kevin has had a makeover to celebrate the supermarket’s partnership with Kiltwalk and Aldi’s 25th anniversary in Scotland.
Over 1,800 giant metre tall kilted Kevin the Carrots will hit Aldi stores in Scotland tomorrow (Thursday 28th November). The special Kevin the Carrot is wearing a fetching kilt in the official Kiltwalk tartan and in true Scottish style, he’s even wearing a sporran.
Aldi is donating £3,000 to Kiltwalk from the sale of selected products. With demand expected to be high, sales of kilted Kevin the Carrot will be limited to two per customer.
Richard Holloway, Regional Managing Director for Scotland commented: “Our giant kilted Kevin the Carrot plush toys sold out in record time on Sunday and I’m very pleased our loyal customers will have another chance to get one in store this Thursday. However, stocks are limited and once they’re gone, they’re gone!”
Aldi became Kiltwalk’s official ‘Supermarket Partner’ for 2019 to mark its 25th anniversary in Scotland and has been responsible for fuelling over 20,000 Kiltwalkers across events in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Dumfries. Aldi employees across the country have taken part raising over £5,300 for the supermarket’s long-term charity partner, Teenage Cancer Trust.
