What an absolute Aldi of an IED
Maybe Lidl are selling IEDs now. They're facing strong competition from Aldi and need to react to the market. Hopefully he didn't leave the receipt in the bag.

"It looked like a bucket of mayonnaise," he says.

"I'm not sure if it was a chemical reaction or something else, but it looked home made. I'm not an expert though."

These crude types of bombs work because they create a rapid build up of gas on burning. If they aren't contained they just burn rapidly but don't create enough pressure. That's a plastic bucket which is probably why it didn't contain itself. My guess is it's sodium chlorate based. Peroxide possibly due to the bang.
