Heinz released the specially branded cans of spaghetti to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Spaghetti Junction connecting the M6 and A38(M), which passed this week.

The cans were released on Monday with a limited amount of 500. However, due to the limited amount selling out so fast, Heinz released a further 250 on Tuesday, which have now also sold out.

People have been snapping up the cans, and some have even gone to the lengths of selling the limited edition cans on eBay.

One can has bids on the auction currently at £34, whilst another listing has bids up to £19, and one listing even has a Buy it Now price of £250.

Speaking about the launch of the limited edition spaghetti can, a spokesperson for Heinz said: "The response to the cans has been amazing, we put 500 on sale yesterday and they very quickly sold out so we’ve made more available this morning for purchase.

"It’s been incredible to see the nation’s demand for these very special tins, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Spaghetti Junction.

"We knew merging two British icons, Heinz Spaghetti and the original Spaghetti Junction, would cause a frenzy but we were very surprised to see the cans sell out in just a few hours with heavy traffic to our website. We’ve had a lot of fun celebrating the anniversary."
