Lidl Toffee/Plastic/Chocolate Apples

So i took a trip to Lidl. Now this always annoys me when I go into the fruit and veg section, I like my fruit and veg but not when it comes covered in plastic, this usually poses a big problem in Lidl… Finding some fruit or veg not in plastic is pretty difficult so my options for a bit of healthy eating are a bit limited, limited to some avocados and some pairs and apples if I’m lucky. But if I want some toffee or some chocolate on my apples, oh no, if you like chocolate you must loooove plastic.
