Writes Samuel: ‘Would someone like to try their hardest to justify the price difference and the $175kg for birdseye chilli?’
He adds: ‘It's plain robbery at that price. $147kg for that packaging 😂’
‘There is customer demand for prepacked chillies and the additional labour and packaging requirements means that they come at an additional cost,’ the spokesperson.
‘We will continue to offer customers a choice between loose and pre packed chillies.’
However when a Coles representative spoke of the various factors - ‘transportation costs, manufacturing changes and stock availability’ - to Samuel, he wasn’t convinced.
‘$148kg for all those "factors" 😂 you're killing me. Nice try 😕’ he said.
