Ah ok, I thought till the companies started labelling them wonky and …Ah ok, I thought till the companies started labelling them wonky and started selling them at lower prices, they werent deemed fit to be sold?


In the days before supermarkets, farmers dug stuff out of the ground put them. In Hessian sacks, packed them off to the wholesaler, as is, the greengrocer bought them, put them into a hopper and sold them to the customer, dirt and all. Then supermarkets came along, then the EU and we end up with regulated, graded, sized, food in plastic bags in sizes too big to use up without spoiling, deemed to be "standard". Then the supermarkets say it's due to customer demand. Never has been, and never will be, it's to suit their stock control and transport systems. Idiotic, hence you now have bloody awful Strawberries in December, etc. etc. Stop the planet, I want to get off.
Not a bad deal but at the moment Tesco have 2.5KG of white potatoes for a £1 ( which you posted a few days ago)and lidl have 2.5kg Maris pipers for 99p.

I know which is why I pick these coz they taste just as good as the “normal” more expensive packs. I find it outrageous they get classified as such and were being thrown away till pretty recently.
these are a bargain and not unknown for the spuds to be maris pipers

They were never thrown away .. It's just a marketing ploy
Home Bargains has 2kg for 69p... And they make fantastic chips or jacket spuds...

I see ok, that makes sense.
Absolutely rotten
for 95p . shame Morrison try to recover from something which use to go bin. same with other vegetables. worth 10 to 20p.
This wonky thing is a con. The stuff is barely cheaper than the class 1 veg yet they act as if they are selling it off cheap to cut waste. Marketing con. Oh yeh and whatever happened to their veg boxes with the out of date but still too good to bin veg ?

More marketing BS from morrisons.

Did you know the mathematical name for the Pringles shape of crisp is a hyperbolic paraboloid.
Packed with flavour???????
I have known white potatoes to be described as packed with flavour....I find them to be the most hideous type of tater packed with water & totally tasteless.
Pay 4p more and get 2.5kg of Maris Piper potatoes from Lidl.Offer on until the 20th

Not in the world of the supermarket produce buyer.
No such thing as wonky potatoes! Mash em up and they taste just as nice!
I think it’s just supermarkets who assume we won’t buy them, although I would imagine it’s based on hard data. We buy sacks of local spuds where we live, can’t beat em (but you can mash them!).

I would believe you but you have people on here that don't like Lidls bakery because it's open and Wilkinson pick n mix because that's open. I used think the same but no its customer demand.

Correct me if i am wrong, didn't the EU make those rules, so many people using food banks and all.
Very nice but where can I get the artificially wonky variety?

In the wonky Isle maybe?

The issues you quote is only because if self service supermarkets. Before then you were served by the shop, as you still are in a bakery, for example. Vegetables are in the main, peeled and /or cooked before consumption. I'm old enough to remember customer service, you don't even get that nowadays in most supermarkets. Any greengrocer would have laughed at you for asking for strawberries in winter, quite ridiculous. Supermarkets fill any gap available. Vegetables are seasonal, not 24/7/365. If you ask someone if they would like strawberries in December and they will inevitably say "ooh yes please". That isn't customer demand, its supermarkets trying to sell you something. I have yet to meet anyone who has asked supermarkets to bag their vegetables in plastic bags, it is purely for their convenience, stock kept in refrigerated and environmentally controlled warehouses to slow decay, that is why they rot so quickly at home. (and why you are paying a premium for the convenience)
Potatoes are 80% water and 20% solid,Wonky or not!
