A HK$168 strawberry spotted at CitySuper supermarket has prompted a fiery debate over “designer” fruit and excess packaging.
The Kotoka strawberry gift box includes a sticker which reads “Fresh By Air From Japan.”
Some Facebook commenters were as angry over the pricing as they were about the packaging.
“City super need public shaming… I don’t shop there anyway… mostly since prices are criminal and so is their packaging,” said one commenter. “Citysuper is ridiculously expensive!! Jeeez! HKD168 for ONE strawberry! Bloody hell!!” remarked another.
