SAVVY shoppers are raving about Lidl's £1.50 fruit and vegetable boxes available in store.
Several customers took to Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains to show off their healthy hauls and fellow users were keen to get their hands on one too.
Lynda Browning shared a snap of her gigantic Lidl box which included delicious-looking apples, grapes, satsumas, shiny red peppers and a packet of fresh basil.
"Just got one of Lidl’s fruit and veg boxes for £1.50 what a bargain
Before any one says something no need to waste anything fruit can be frozen for smoothies, veg for sauces," she wrote alongside the image.
Fellow shoppers were quick to comment, with one person writing: "Brilliant bargain," while a second said: "wow … great buy …enjoy …luv a bargain (sic)."
A third person wrote: "Yummy! Great find," while a fourth said: "That’s really good value! One red pepper coat me 50p on its own in Asda the other day 😄Great bargain! 👍."
One user even revealed that they purchased one to help with their Christmas dinner in 2019.
"I bought one a week before Christmas last year. I pre-prepped and frozen everything and took it all out ready Christmas Eve. It was amazing!! Enjoy it 😊👏👏 ," they revealed.
Another person posted a picture of their own box which featured plenty of healthy-looking bananas, green grapes, pears, mushrooms and peppers.
In the comments, different people were keen to share snaps of their fruit and veg hauls – as they praised the supermarket.
However, others revealed that the boxes aren't available in their local Lidl – or they've never seen them.
The Lidl website states: "You can find our 'Too Good to Waste' fruit and veg boxes by the checkout area. They're £1.50 for 5kg box, subject to availability."
They add: "We all have a responsibility to reduce the amount of food we throw away, and that’s precisely what our Too Good To Waste boxes are all about.
"We want you to get the most out of your food too – after all, it’s no good to anybody if the food we pass on still goes to waste further down the line.
"To help with this, we’ve put together a few tips for making food go further and to give you some ideas for working this extra veg into your weekly meals."
