You Learn Something New Every Day

This afternoon I chauffeured my daughter to Morrisons to buy ingredients for Sunday dinner.

Being a careful Yorkshire woman, when we were in the vegetable section she was looking for best deals including the Wonky range.

At this point I stopped her and said "Wonky range?"

Yes, she said, didn't you know about Wonky?

No I didn't, but I do now.

I was surprised to find fruit and veg which didn't quite conform to standard shapes and sizes, on sale at a reduced price Shocked.

I normally shop in Tesco and I don't even know if they have a similar range.

 

What I have to say is what the hell does it matter if a Lemon doesn't fit a standard shape or size...it's a lemon for goodness sake not a cat-walk model.

Yes, Tesco do have their own range of 'wonkies' Thumbs_Up

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

I don't know but we picked up 2 lemons, a standard one and a wonky one at nearly half the price.

There was a slight difference in shape between the two but a blind man on a galloping horse would have been happy with either in his Martini.

It also allows our farmers to sell the wonkies which the supermarkets refused to accept at one time.
