Asda Wonky Veg Box

Hello!!

Too excited for this post as I finally got my hands on a Asda Wonky Veg Box!!! I have been looking for one of these for months and they are always sold out everywhere!! 

Here is what it looks like
I got a leak, ware potatoes x2, red onions lots of them, peppers x3, carrots, white cabbage x2 and parsnips x3 all for £3.50. 
P.s I also got a cucumber. 

The carrots have missing chunks, the leek is too big as well as the potatoes, the peppers have a few blemishes which can be cut off and the cucumber is shaped funny. 

They whole deal with these wonky veg boxes is that nothing is actually wrong with the veg. It's just ascetically rejected  by the shops as they think people won't buy it. Because I already work in the food industry I know that a funny shaped carrot or a potato with a few blemishes in the skin that can peel off, won't affect my product. 

I don't care if my veg is funny shaped or if there is a few blemishes I can peel off. My products are still good an edible. 

So please do have a look for these boxes as they are super good value!! 

Keep watching for recipes I make this week with this veg!! 

Speak soon

  1. I love this! Is it a result of the Jamie Oliver campaign?

    1. Im not sure if its a direct result. But I think its Asdas way of saying that they are doing their bit for food waste, as most of this stuff would go straight to the bin.
      Thanks for reading :)

  3. I didn't know asda did these. I'll try and pick up a box. Do you know if they are sold on all Asda stores or just the big ones? Ours is quite small. Brilliant price and who cares if it's wonky. #kcacols lifeinthemumslane

  6. I saw this on the One Show and thought it was an excellent idea. Who cares what the vegetables look like if they're tasty, good for you and affordable. Happy cooking :)

  7. Love this idea. We don't shop in Asda but we used too. We probably will visit there again in a few weeks as we like to have a change every few months. x

  9. Morrisons sell wonky veg too - we got so much stuff for half what we paid for normal stuff- all cause it looks funny. We watched a great documentary on BBC about the waste in the food industry - really interesting stuff but also heartbreaking to see how much perfectly edible food is wasted every single day. #KCACOLS

  11. This is such a great idea - I've never even heard of this before! And they don't even look that wonky - much better than what I produce on our allotment!! #KCACOLS

  12. Wow I never heard of these before - but what a great idea! I really don't mind my veg being wonky, but yes I guess if I was paying full price I'd pick out a nice symmetrical blemish-free piece. All supermarkets should do these! #KCACOLS x

  14. I used to work in a greengrocers so I have no issue buying veg like this or with short best before dates. I have yet to actually come across one of the boxes but they are a great idea! #kcacols

  15. i've never seen a wonky box in either of my local asdas! so i'm pretty happy to be able to have a little sneak peak at whats in them and for such low price simply because of their 'wonky' shape.! xx

  16. This is something new to me. I didn't know Asda had these boxes. I will have to go and check for it next time I go there as we do our groceries at Asda. Thanks so much for sharing this at #KCACOLS. I hope to see you again tomorrow, :-) xx

  17. What a great idea this is! I didn't even know this existed! I wouldn't worry about veg being aesthetically pleasing. £3.50 for the box seems very reasonable too. #KCACOLS
