Wonky veg is a marketing ploy and I'd rather choose my own veg.


"Wonky Veg" brand includes up to 40% of a crop of vegetables that can go to waste because of the aesthetic requirements of supermarkets
There's nothing wrong with the quality - nothing wrong with the taste - just a problem with the shape or size
Usually the process of cooking the veg eliminates the problem and helps with the "waste problem" and supports the suppliers in a small way

Wish they would do wonky beer or wonky vodka
Doesn't seem like good Value?

It doesn't support the suppliers at all. Very little goes to waste anyway, it goes in soups and stews and for animal feed. If the supermarket buys one suppliers wonky veg, they'll need less 'proper' veg from another. That other supplier then has to sell his 'proper' veg, at a reduced rate, for soups, stews and animal feed. The way to help suppliers is to eat more veg, not different shaped veg.
These aren't really that good value. Shame
Shouldn’t this be called special veg? I’m sure it would sell more.
Doesn't look a good deal to me - how does this compare with something like Aldi's super 6?

My point is most of them aren't 'wonky' - it's a marketing ploy!
Cold. Does not include a turnip shaped like a “thingy”.
Seems steep for what's in the box really. Vegetables are fairly cheap these days.

Until the aesthetic requirement for vegetables sold in supermarkets are changed this will be the best option available to the supplier
Unload a perfectly acceptable produce at an acceptable price to supplier and the consumer
Cold these boxes are a marketing ploy and not good value it's like buying 2 liters of milk for £1 as opposed to 4 pints for £1.09.
You could make a big pot of wonky soup with it, but it isn't the best deal going, Aldi are still selling veg at 19p.
Morrisons can't and don't even try to compete with aldi . Apart from the odd special offer its a complete waste of time shopping there if you have an aldi nearby.
Considering you can currently buy packs of veg from Aldi for 19p this seems rather expensive, not to mention hard to peel. I'm all for the principal they represent but some supermarkets are cashing in on peoples good will here in my opinion.

I use both Aldi and Morrisons and like others have said they have a lot of this for 19p.
i looked at the wonky celery M had and it really wasn't worth getting for 13p less than the regular stuff
Wish they would do wonky beer or wonky vodka
They are only on line on Morrisons.com not available in store at the moment,and before you ask how I know i I deliver them
cant find near me, and they seems to have discontinued the wonky grapes as well.
have some heat.

You're moaning you would like it more misshapen? Surely the point is that it is cheaper than the normal perfect veg and prevents food waste.
Do you get the box with it?

Oh I see my mistake, I read the "o" in wonky as an "a" - oops (or "aaps")
Wonky veg is the new in thing and Morrisons have cottoned on to this fact, was in Morrison's today and wonky veg packs were 45p the same non wonky veg packs are 25p in tescos and 19p in aldi.
People are jumping on a bandwagon brand and getting ripped off again.

Nope, they most certainly are cheaper. Go in to Morrisons and look. Don't start whining about Aldi this and Lidl that, the point is that it is cheaper than the regular Morrisons veg, they don't profess it to be cheaper than EVERYTHING on the market, only their own standard range.

I'm not comparing with Aldi or Lidl (or anywhere else), I'm in Morrisons every day and know what the stuff costs.

4 carrots - 50p a bag with about 8-9 in - value 25p max
cabbage - 50p = value 50p
onions - 50p about 6 = 35p
3 x parsnips - 50p bag of about 6 = 27p
8 potatoes - £1 for about 20-25 (1kg) = 40p
2 x leeks £1 bag of 5 = 40p
1 x swede = 50p

Thats a selection which is cheaper at full price (£2.67) from morrisons website. If you work on the prices from a few days ago that cost goes down further as many of the items were on 3 for £1.

Even working on buying packs of wonky stuff

1kg carrots 35p
2.5kg potatoes £1
1kg onions 42p
500g parsnips 42p
cabbage 43p
swede (don't sell wonky ones) 50p
500g Leeks (don't sell wonky ones) £1

Thats £4.12 and you are getting far more carrots, potatoes, onions, parsnips and leeks which more than makes up for the £1.12 extra cost.

Plus, as an example, I don't like onions, so they would be wasted, so you can buy what you need rather than what the supermarket decides you want.

If someone cant tell which costs more out of a bag of 58p carrots or 35p carrots I think it is safe to say I am wasting my life talking to them.

as I have no idea what you are talking about, I would agree. As if someone cannot tell a 50p bag of 9 carrots works out about 5p each, so giving you 4 in a box has a value of 20-25p then they are extremely stupid.
