​I don't mind a wonky veg they all taste the same!

sure the tesco worker didnt get it wrong?
how did they put it through the till? 'properly' or an override?
30p per bag seems ridiculous as does the 'per item' but per kg seems fair?

​there is a barc ode on the bag and was just scanned

What a time to be alive! have some heat

Voted hot just because it's such an amazingly good idea.

Anyone else found this? Hoping it is national.

this was tesco grimsby btw....

Indeed, what are the locations? Is it specific to region or type of store?

It's obviously only 25p as you pay 5p for the bag :-/

Can I take my own bag to fill and just pay 25p then? Clearly gonna take one of those one tonne sacks Jewson deliver their gravel in

Theres always one oO

Scary veg. Like I need another reason for my son to refuse vegetables! Hot deal though I think they should be in with the 'normal' veg. I'm neither fussy nor shallow...

Perhaps peel and cut first and then cook and serve, if your giving him raw veg its no wonder he's turning his nose up at it!!

I don't know the locations might just be worth checking in your local- I'm popping back tomorrow so will ask!

The thinking these days is veg should not be peeled but presented au naturel
The peel gives extra fibre so is better for you, unfortunately rational arguments rarely work with children(ask my parents)

50p for air? ​That's inflation for you!

In my local wwx Broadstairs it was 5 items for 30p. All they had were parsnips and carrots.

Got to admit, I've started leaving the skins on my potatoes when cooking mash potatoes and roast potatoes and the taste is far superior with the skins on.

And it saves any peeling!

A carrot

So basically they are selling the wonky veg that they first refused to buy from the farmers the first time around.

Then they offer the farmers a "we will take it of your hands" price then Tesco's makes money on that as well.

Philanthropy it ain't.
