    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!

    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!
