I resent the suggestion that I was sent!
I went for two and got two, just didn't see the dodgy description until later

"Quality goods from the Redshed-or Warewhare" is a total misuse of the English language. As all Londoners would say "It's a load of old toot"

It took a minute to get it duh, but hilarious !

2 things i have seen are "NZ Masterfoods guacamole" with 2 avacados on the label, but the ingredients say "1% avocado, 50% vegtable fat, colour, water, flavourings" and "Kiwi 100% Orange juice" with ingredients of Orange Juice, Preservative, Vitamin C, Flavouring"
