    Lidl Fruit&Veg Box 1.50 5kg 2nd Aug 18 at 6:35 PM
    Being trialled in 122 stores.

    Thanks to Jennypenny on HUKD


    Official MoneySavingExpert insert Tue 7 Aug: If you're in North London, or the West Midlands, 122 Lidl stores in those locations are trialling a 1.50 box containing 5kg of 'yellow-sticker' veg, which is slightly past its best, but still safe to eat.

    You won't know exactly what you'll get, as Lidl say the 'Too Good to Waste' boxes are made up on the day with whatever fruit and veg are about to go to waste in the store at the time.

    Lidl also says it will "introduce additional price reductions on its fresh items that do contain 'best before' and 'use by' dates - on top of the 30% reduction already placed", see our Reductions in places you might not expect blog to read more about Lidl's 30% off stickers.

    Big thanks to treboeth for the original post!

    Always amusing.

    I've no need for 5Kg of veg I've not picked myself... that's already on its last legs.

    I went first thing this morning to check it out, only to be told that it happens at random times during the day when the staff have time to sort it out. Disappointed!

    My local store no longer has this, so maybe the trial wasn't successful. A shame but there's always Morrisons wonky veg, except it's the wrong side of town for me.

    Blimey some of the comments on HDUK are a bit outrageous! I stopped shopping at Lidl after their Parking Eye cameras were giving out false tickets - can't relax in there any more and they only give one hour to shop - can take 15 minutes in the checkout queues.......!! If I absolutely have to go there I park on the road nearby...which is sort of ridiculous.
    Less stuff, more life, love, laughter and cats!
    Even if I'm on the shopping threads, it doesn't mean I'm buying! Sometimes it's good to just look and then hit the CLOSE button!

    Was hoping Swansea would be on the list. Would have given it a try at 1.50!

    I have had two boxes this week and very pleased with both. Today's had 8 huge vine tomatoes, 19 bananas, 1 yellow pepper, 5 limes, 1 peach and a bunch of grapes. For 1.50 I think this is wonderful value!

I got one with the least amount of potatoes in, but the contents were 12 spuds, 2 sweet potatoes, punnet of lovely sweet black grapes, 3 huge tomatoes, pack of mangetout peas, 3 plums, two apricots, 3 satsumas, 1 iceberg lettuce, 1 leek, small stick of brussels sprouts, small pak choi. That's all I can remember anyway.

    1.50 - amazing value!
