Can't see what the problem is as both cakes look quite dissimilar and the M&S one kinda looks better but how can the shape of a caterpillar be trademarked?

Aldi 'copies' lots of products and although the quality is not as good they are cheaper which of course is what it's all about. 

Take cereals for just one example. A quick glance at the packaging and they are not a million miles from Kellogg's, Weetabix or Shreddies - and often a similar name. 

As for quality or even content don't ever do what I did a couple of years back and buy Aldi Scotch eggs. Jeepers, they were so awful the Mrs had to pull the car over (and excuse this bit) whilst I spat it out. But there you go, 50p for two what can you expect. 

Expect and usually get quality from Marks, expect and often don't get quality from Aldi's.

How can you tell it's an Aldi centipede?  It's only got six legs (does that make it a hexapede?).
