Posted by Christine Kizik on Facebook, she said she was “surprised and disappointed” when her friend first shared it.

“Adding packaging to an avocado is strange to say the least,” wrote Kizik. “This is wasteful and I’m curious about the reasoning for Sobeys stocking avocado this way?”

With more than 200 shares, many commenters agreed with Kizik’s concerns.

“This is absolutely ridiculous… Place a sign and instructions beside the beautiful fruit informing newcomers how to choose and prepare the perfect avocado,” said one person.

“I’m pretty sure that package would take longer to open than an actual avocado…that is so ridiculous and wasteful!” said another.

Sobeys responded to Kizik’s post, saying the goal is, in fact, convenience:

This product was developed for people who might be new to using avocados and for a little more convenience. It eliminates the guess work when it comes to ripeness and any challenges if you are not familiar with peeling and seeding a fresh avocado. The packaging is there to keep the fresh wholesome appearance and quality of the avocado without it browning prior to consumption.
