It seems that supermarket food boxes are becoming more common due to how things are right now. Of course they might provide convenience but are they really worth the money?
I've had a look at a new extra large fruit & vegetable box from Morrisons.
"Morrisons makes splash with extra-large fruit box can feed families for days" is the headline and the box is stated to be £22 delivered.
Morrisons say a typical box will contain (and i've added the current price next to each):
- Baking potatoes 2.5kg - £1.50
- Trimmed green beans 80g - 75p
- Onions 1kg - 75p
- Wonky carrots 1kg - 40p
- Chestnut mushrooms 250g - £1
- Baby spinach 160g - £1
- Baby plum tomatoes 250g - £1
- The Best baby sweet peppers 250g - £1.65
- Royal gala apples (6 pack) - £1.60
- Ripen at home bananas (5 pack) - £1
- Unwaxed lemons (5 pack) - £1
- Whole pineapple - £1
- Satsumas 600g - £1.40
- Red grapes 500g - £1.50
- Whole cucumber - 57p
- Round lettuce - 65p
Total (not including any multi-buys) - £16.77
Delivery is from £1.50 so this could all be bought separately from £18.27 deliveredso £3.73 cheaper.
Factor in possible issues with BBE dates and that you cannot be 100% sure what you'll receive in your box. There is simply not enough value in this for me. Delivery is included in the £22 but you cannot order these along with a larger shop.
Has anyone ordered one of these boxes or maybe another from Morrisons (a Vegetarian Food Box, Gluten Free Food Box, BBQ Food Box, Assorted Fish Box and British Farmers Food Box) and have any feedback?
