    While it's a nice cheap option for vegetables by the look of it, and I like that it seems to remove a lot of packaging, it doesn't look like it could feed a family for a week. It could probably feed me for one, so maybe a couple?
    80g a portion, 8 vegetables is 640g a day so 4480g a week. So just about for me but a couple who don't eat veg like me is possible. A family would have to not eat a lot of veg at all to feed them.
    At £3 for the 'wonky' veg and £5 for the 'normal' it can be seen as cheap though.

    If it is like the Asda promotion last year, you'll be lucky to even find them stocked in stores.
