One baffled customer searching for the summer staple asked fellow shoppers about it on Facebook.

Taking to the popular shopping group Aldi UK Shoppers, she wrote: “Does anyone know if they have been discontinued, I can’t find them anywhere.”

A user sadly responded: “I think they have been discontinued as I used to buy them 2 years ago but have not seen them since.”

Another person added: “Yeah they are discontinued!”

Aldi confirmed the Four Seasons Lemon & Lime Slices (350g) are no longer available.

An Aldi spokesperson stated: “We continually review our range of products to make sure we’re meeting the needs of Aldi shoppers.”

However, the popular product is still available on Aldi’s website.

Some shoppers even suggested a few alternatives to the popular product.

One person advised: “So easy to make them yourself, all you need to do is separate the slices while they first freeze (use baking parchment to separate layers).

“Once frozen you can put them together in a bag or container to get the freezer space back.”

Another quipped: “I do my own freeze on a chopping board and then bag.”

It comes after Aldi shoppers were left sobbing after realising that a beloved Desperados dupe has been discontinued.

The supermarket chain confirmed that the El Bandido beer will no longer be available on its shelves.

Priced at £3.99 for a three-pack of 330ml bottles, the tequila-flavoured beer was a popular choice among consumers who described it as “nice” and “tasty”.

One said the beer tasted “exactly the same” as the original Desperados, which also comes in packages of three 300ml beers but in comparison costs £5 at Tesco, £5.50 at Sainsbury’s, and £6, or two for £10, at Morrisons.

It comes as Heinz also left fans devastated after discontinuing a handy tea time staple.

The company has opted to remove Five Beans Snap Pots from supermarket shelves across the UK despite their popularity with Brits.

But, they have launched a new flavour of baked beans – but it’s sure to divide opinion.

The tin can connoisseurs have teamed up with cheese maker Cathedral City to launch ‘Cheesy Bean’.

Meanwhile, Heinz fans were saddened to learn about the discontinuation of their “favourite” soup.

How to save on your supermarket shop

THERE are plenty of ways to save on your grocery shop.

You can look out for yellow or red stickers on products, which show when they’ve been reduced.

If the food is fresh, you’ll have to eat it quickly or freeze it for another time.

Making a list should also save you money, as you’ll be less likely to make any rash purchases when you get to the supermarket.

Going own brand can be one easy way to save hundreds of pounds a year on your food bills too.

This means ditching “finest” or “luxury” products and instead going for “own” or value” type of lines.

Plenty of supermarkets run wonky veg and fruit schemes where you can get cheap prices if they’re misshapen or imperfect.

For example, Lidl runs its Waste Not scheme, offering boxes of 5kg of fruit and vegetables for just £1.50.

If you’re on a low income and a parent, you may be able to get up to £442 a year in Healthy Start vouchers to use at the supermarket too.

Plus, many councils offer supermarket vouchers as part of the Household Support Fund.
