Sainsbury’s shopper forced to have ONE Brussels sprout with Sunday dinner after online shopping gaffe

A COUPLE had to make do with meat and one veg after ordering a single Brussels sprout for their Sunday dinner.

Frank Volpe, 37, and his girlfriend Taciana Tomaz, 39, were left feeling a little green after bungling their weekly online shop.

Bus driver Frank said: “We love sprouts with a roast and when we clicked ‘add’ on the Sainsbury’s website, we assumed it meant one bag — not one sprout.

"It’s a bit ridiculous and they don’t make it clear on the website. I’m sure we’re not the only ones to have made this mistake.

“We usually get our veg in person so this hasn’t happened before. We’ll just have to have half a sprout each.”

The solitary veg cost just 3p, and arrived covered with the price label.

Frank, from West London, joked: “Maybe the worker completing the order was ­literally thinking it was one of our five a day.”

In March, The Sun told how mum Jill Savory, of Durham, was sent a single sprout by Sainsbury’s after ordering a whole bag.

She said of the order, weighing 0.028kg: “I obviously wanted a pack, not just one.”
