Banana Price

Did anybody view the BBC Panorama programme earlier in the week about our supermarkets? What a revelation it was, and I'm cynical enough.

I conducted a little exercise this morning at my local Tesco. I weighed a bag of the fun-size bananas I often buy - about five little bananas cost £1.37. The bag was one pound in weight.

I then looked at the loose bananas and they cost 24 pence per pound.

I find that fact remarkable.

My point? Buy loose, unless there is a very good offer.
