thats it GS ..all about the outside presentation and not whats inside .
and we're all to blame by demanding the best from our supermarkets . we had a doco here on sbs about food waste because of supermarkets not buying anything that was deformed , had a spot on it or bananas with a backward bend . showed farmers dumping thousands of tonnes of good fruit and vege's .
so in response woolies created an area selling bent and rain spotted fruit and vege's , cheap . because they got it from farmers for next to nothing and everyone got stuck in and bought the stuff .
i see now though the price of it isn't much different from the other stuff ...thieving bastards !!
smoko time , so homemade bikkies , flat crunchy things with melted chocolate on top and some moccona coffee .
