SHOPPERS can't get enough of an Aldi dupe that supposedly tastes just like a McDonald's burger.
Right Guys Reviews has over 1.4million followers on Tik Tok where he shares reviews on supermarket products.
In one of his latest videos, he shared one buy from Aldi that he claims tastes just the McDonald's McSpicy, which was added to menus in February.
The clip shows him lifting the Roosters Gastro flamin' hot chicken burgers out of the frozen section of his local Aldi store.
He then says: "Right guys, don't walk to Aldi, run to Aldi.
"If you like the new McSpicy from McDonald's, there is the McSpicy.

A third added: "Been getting these for ages, really good."
The Roosters chicken thighs cost £2.45 on Aldi's website and you get two in a pack.
That means you're paying roughly £1.22 per burger.
A four pack of Brioche buns is £1.05, so 26p per bun, and an Iceberg lettuce costs 65p.
If you factor in a few extra pennies for the mayo the total cost to buy the Aldi ingredients is around £2.20 per burger.
If you use an air fryer to cook the burger, like Right Guys Reviews does, that's roughly an extra 17p for 30 minutes, based on a 1000 watt air fryer.
The Maccies McSpicy costs £4.79 as a single item so you are saving around £2.40 by going with the Aldi dupe.
That's before factoring in any costs if you're getting the McSpicy delivered too.
We looked at getting one delivered to The Sun office.
On Deliveroo it costs £1.49, £1.79 on UberEats and £3.50 on Just Eat unless you spend over £10 in which case it's free.
How can I save money at Aldi?
If the Aldi dupe isn't enough to tempt you but you still want to save money next time you're in your nearest branch, we've got some tips.
Supermarkets often put products in areas where they know customers will be tempted to grab something, like the tills.
But if you make a list before heading out for your shop, you're less likely to be enticed in.
You can try looking out for red stickers too – Aldi workers put these on products that have been reduced to clear, either because they about to go out of date or the packaging is damaged.
Tom Church, co-founder of Latest Deals, said it's worth shopping on a Wednesday too.
This is when it drops prices and shoppers can often be found rushing to their nearest branch to get an early morning bargain.
