How did she know?May 7, 2019 Tim WorstallFood25 CommentsMuslim mum furious her Aldi lasagne sauce ‘tasted like bacon’ previousThere are two ways of reading thisnextWhy we must wipe out British farming with true free trade 25 thoughts on “How did she know?” Steve May 7, 2019 at 10:49 am Cos… Having converted to Islam seven years ago, Rianne is familiar with the taste and odour of bacon. I wonder what attracted this chavette to a religion where 85% of female adherents are “economically inactive” though? The mum feels badly let down by the experience and is hoping to be compensated. I’ll bet she is. Hallowed Be May 7, 2019 at 10:59 am Rianna used to eat percy pigs before they went full vegan. Gamecock May 7, 2019 at 11:00 am Shop in a Western store, get Western food. Bloke on M4 May 7, 2019 at 11:13 am Isn’t she supposed to cover her hair, as a Muslim? Rob May 7, 2019 at 11:15 am There is a twitter feed dedicated to “outraged compo faces” in media photos, it is hilarious. Bloke in North Dorset May 7, 2019 at 11:56 am I always found it amusing that my mates’ vegan daughter could eat Walkers Beef crisps but not Cheese & Onion. Perhaps Aldi should market the sauce as: I Van’t Believe Its Not Bacon? DocBud May 7, 2019 at 12:34 pm I felt like I’d betrayed my religion. Yeah, Allah must be really pissed and losing sleep over it. Nothing quite says a cult is utter bollocks than a god’s obsession with what people eat, what they wear and children’s genitalia. BraveFart May 7, 2019 at 12:37 pm Why is this devout RoP tart showing her tits off to the world? Aldi should consider counter action and costs recovery for the undoubted commercial damage this will have caused them Robert May 7, 2019 at 12:42 pm I’m pretty sure a good many lasagne recipes I have read require the use of prosciutto, bacon or pork. Jonathan May 7, 2019 at 1:06 pm “Then this happens. I felt like I’d betrayed my religion. Aldi have told me they are going to test the sauce to see if it has been contaminated. It’s just not on.” Let’s hope this incident doesn’t blow up. Daniel Hill May 7, 2019 at 1:23 pm If this was really so important to her, she’d only be buying products with a halal label… Also, tastes like bacon ≠ is/contains bacon (don’t know how this works for Islam, but I asked a Rabbi friend what would happen if I could make in a lab something that tasted exactly like bacon, who said, no problem as long as it doesn’t come from a pig) Dongguan John May 7, 2019 at 1:24 pm If she’s a Muslim then I’m Mohammad. Rob May 7, 2019 at 1:27 pm If she’s a Muslim then I’m Mohammad. Double compo bonus multiplier. DocBud May 7, 2019 at 1:34 pm Dongguan John (PBUH). JuliaM May 7, 2019 at 1:52 pm It’s always the bloody converts. The usual reason for converting is relationship-based. I wonder what the son’s name is…? Bloke in North Dorset May 7, 2019 at 1:57 pm Let’s hope this incident doesn’t blow up. Bravo! Dongguan John May 7, 2019 at 2:11 pm Julia, It’s always the bloody converts. Yup. Converts are always the most zealous yet this one doesn’t even bother dressing like a Muslim for the papers. She hasn’t even bothered giving herself an Islamic name. I wonder what the son’s name is…? It was the son who noticed the bacon taste. Odd that this devout Muslim would feed her kid haram food. What I suppose really happened is that this chav thought she could get some compo from the supermarket by claiming to be Muslim (more victim pts than vegan) and when they told her to fuck off’ rather than admitting defeat, decided to double down and go to the local paper. Steve May 7, 2019 at 2:16 pm She hasn’t even bothered giving herself an Islamic name. Chavarella al-Dis dearieme May 7, 2019 at 3:31 pm “Nothing quite says a cult is utter bollocks than a god’s obsession with what people eat” Spinoza explained it. PJF May 7, 2019 at 4:07 pm There’s a lot of ‘em in Derby. Too close for comfort for me. We’re all doooooomed, I tell ye. Penseivat May 7, 2019 at 4:47 pm The answer is simple. She pays for the sauce to be tested. If it’s found to contain bacon, then negotiate further with Aldi. If it doesn’t contain bacon, a letter of “I was mistaken and I’m sorry” to Aldi should close the matter, once she has reimbursed Aldi for the loss of revenue from reduced carbonara sales. Dennis the Peasant May 7, 2019 at 4:49 pm I felt like I’d betrayed my religion. Evidently she hasn’t read the Koran. Pork is not forbidden to Muslims… It is to be avoided whenever possible. The distinction is important… and evidently lost on her. moqifen May 7, 2019 at 5:47 pm Aldi ought to send her a complimentary portion of marmot. Anon May 7, 2019 at 6:02 pm COVER YOURSELF UP, YOU HARLOT! Grist May 8, 2019 at 9:08 am Love the fact that it took two reporters. One to interview her and the other to give him oxygen.
