Great news for shoppers today, as Lidl* have announced that they will be selling big 5kg 'wonky' fruit and veg boxes at a price of only £1.50!
It's a trial to be run in selected stores only, and we think it will be a huge hit with bargain hunters everywhere.
The announcement from the store states:
"A fruitful idea for cutting food waste: we're trialling new 5kg boxes of fruit and veg that is slightly damaged, but still perfectly good to eat, for just £1.50.
It's being piloted in 122 of our stores, so if you come across any, let us know what you think."
This is such a large amount of fruit and veg for the price, and although it might not look all pretty and perfect, no one is going to see the difference when it's all chopped up in a stew, salad or soup. I'm hoping to get a box to encourage my kids to try some new veggies too.
Lidl haven't released a list of the 122 stores that will be stocking the veg boxes, but we're hoping that it will extend to all stores soon.
