The wonky veg box will include:
- Carrots - approx four (large).
- Onions - approx six (small).
- Potatoes - approx eight (large).
- Parsnips - approx three (large).
It'll also include at least three of a selection of other veg, which could include:
We priced up the box based on the included veg plus one cauliflower, swede and a cabbage at Tesco and came to £6.81. However, if you bought the wonky veg from Morrisons plus a swede and a pack of parsnips, it'd cost £3.92.
So you'll save money with this box, but it might be worth picking up the individual packets of wonky veg instead if you like to know what you'll get.
It's worth noting that the wonky veg do not come packed in any plastic, just the cardboard box which can be reused or recycled after you've eaten the vegetables. So, this box is good if you're looking to reduce your purchase of single-use plastics.

If you go in store or online to Morrisons*, you can get selected vegetables and fruit branded 'wonky', which may be slightly irregular in shape or appearance, but totally fine to eat.
In most cases it makes Morrisons veg cheaper than all other major supermarkets - including Aldi and Lidl - but what's available will depend on the season and stock in your local store.
Some examples of wonky veg available include:
- 35p Carrots 1kg* - next cheapest we found, 45p at Tesco.
- 42p Onions 1kg* - next cheapest we found, 59p at Lidl.
- 43p Cabbage* - next cheapest we found, 59p at Tesco.
- 87p Potatoes 2.5kg* - next cheapest we found, £1.18 at Lidl.
It's worth noting that all of these fruit & veg are provided in non-recyclable packaging. If you're looking to reduce your purchase of single-use plastics, Morrisons also sell a Wonky Vegetable box* for £3 which doesn't contain any plastic.
There are always ways to save money at Morrisons* so even if there isn't a cracking deal out there that works for you, don't assume you can't cut your costs further.
Ways to save include:
- Supermarket coupons. Make sure you check out our supermarket coupons page to save on your shopping.
- Compare the cost of your trolley. Compare the cost of your shopping trolley at the major online supermarkets with MySupermarket*. Prices are often reflected in stores, so it's worth doing a check to see which is cheapest for you.
- Take the Downshift Challenge. The phrasing and language used in shops hypnotises us into thinking the most costly is best. While the packaging looks more opulent, look beneath it sometimes you won't be able to tell the difference (often it's even made in the same factory). Take our Downshift Challenge.
- Track if it's really a bargain. Most of us know just because a supermarket lists an item as "on offer", that doesn't mean it's cheap. The trouble has been sorting awesome offers from poor promos. To help, MySupermarket* charts products' price histories to show if a 'was' price is realistic.
- Time trips right to bag huge yellow sticker discounts. If you spot a yellow sticker discount - fantastic. Grab it and use it quickly as it's a saving on perfectly good nosh. See when Morrisons normally reduces its produce in our Cheap Supermarket Shopping guide.
- Check out similar retailers, eg, Asda, Sainsbury’s and the other major supermarkets. If you're not committed to buying from Morrisons, check out our deals from Asda, Aldi, Tesco, Sainsbury's, Lidl and Waitrose, where they may have a better offer.
- Try haggling. We polled 1,400 MoneySavers to find out in which shops hagglers have most success. Supermarkets did feature, so it's worth a go. Find out more in our Haggle on the High Street guide.
- Had a problem with Morrisons? There’s a free online tool you can use to complain – it helps draft, manage and if necessary escalate your complaint. It’s offered by a firm called Resolver, which we like so much we work with it to help people get complaints justice – you can use it to complain to Morrisons*.

Morrisons £6 'Big Daddy' breakfast
19-piece breakfast available in its cafés, excluding Stranraer
If you tend to have a massive appetite first thing in the morning, Morrisons* is offering a 19-piece 'Big Daddy' breakfast for £6 until Sun 24 Jun. You can get the mega meal in all its cafés (excluding Stranraer) until 3pm.
The 'Big Daddy' breakfast includes three rashers of bacon, three pork sausages, three hash browns, two half slices of fried bread, two fried eggs, two half tomatoes, two black puddings, baked beans and sliced mushrooms, which should be more than enough to fill you up (for a considerable amount of the day we'd imagine).
Morrisons' standard 11-piece breakfast is £4.70, which is a similar price to what we've seen at other supermarket cafés.
The extra £1.30 for the bigger 19-piece option at Morrisons gets you an extra rasher of bacon, sausage, hash brown, fried egg, half slice of fried bread and half tomato, as well as two black puddings. So we reckon if you can stomach it, this is a decent value breakfast.
We asked Morrisons how many calories were in its 'Big Daddy' breakfast, but it couldn't tell us. We think it goes without saying though – this isn't for the calorie-conscious.
