We’re well and truly in the festive season, which means many of us have our Out Of Office emails on and the beers are a’flowing. Unfortunately, that also means you’re probably far more likely to be waking up hungover as all hell.
But thankfully, the cheapo lords at Aldi have answered our dusty prayers with a hangover cure that’ll cost you less than a dollar, which is probably ideal if you’ve had a big night on the pints at the pub.
When it comes to hangovers, your best line of defence is obviously hydration (before, during and after a big night). But let’s be real here, it’s very easy to “forget” to split your drinks up with a few waters and wake up wishing for the sweet release of death.
And that’s where electrolytes come in.
Jam-packed with the minerals needed to replenish your tired ass body and help remove the toxins you consumed the night before, it’s no secret that electrolytes are a hungover man’s dream. If you combine it with a shit-load of water, you’re got a great chance at feeling better sooner rather than later.
Thankfully, Aldi is flogging a 20 pack of electrolyte tablets for $5.49, which is quite literally Monopoly money compared to the stuff they sell at the chemist.
If you’re currently too hungover to do the maths, that works out to just 27 cents per tablet. I simply cannot stress just how cheap that is.
Personally, I swear by the beloved Frozen Coke hangover cure, but even that’s nearly four times the price of these electrolytes. I mean it when I say this is a Christmas miracle.
You’re also spoilt for choice with free different flavours to choose from: Orange, Blackcurrant or Lemon & Lime, because you know, options.
Obviously, you should just do the right thing and try to avoid a hangover in the first place. This is the part of the story where I have to tell you that I don’t condone binge drinking. But I’m also just a mere news story and not your mum, so I cannot tell you what to do.
If you’re going to drink, do it responsibly. And if you still wake up feeling like a hungover piece of shit that resembles SpongeBob SquarePants when he’s been left out of the water for too long, maybe hit up Aldi to cure that bad boy faster than you can say “hoo boy, I feel fucked ay mate.”
