Have you seen these bags of bananas before? I find them regularly at Sobeys and they’re always $0.49/lb., compared to the regular $0.79/lb. price.
The reason the bananas are marked down is because they are not as “perfect” as the regular priced bananas. They have a few more brown spots – that’s it! It’s all about the cosmetics. Honestly, I’ve never found a bag that had awfully bruised and overripe bananas.
We go through about 2 dozen bananas each week (for baking, in smoothies, and just for eating), so whenever I see these bags of bananas at Sobeys, I always grab a few. It’s a fantastic way to save money on something I was going to be buying anyway!
I’m not sure if they sell these bags of “non-perfect” bananas at other grocery stores, but most will at least have a reduced produce rack, where you can find bananas (and other produce) marked way down!
Have you seen these bags of reduced bananas before?
