Few agreed with the woman, with many saying as long as the soup weighed the one kilogram advertised there was no issue.
‘As long as it weighs a kilo (sic) then no problem,’ one person commented on the picture.
‘You’re never going to get a perfect vegetable in a soup pack.’
Others said the parsnip was clearly visible and so people could choose whether they wanted to purchase the soup pack.
Many took aim at the parnsip being used at all, with some saying they didn’t mind at all as they barely use the item.

Another wrote: ‘You mean can I see a dried out, no good 3/4 of a vegetable that otherwise wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for soup packs? Yep, I see it!’
‘Less waste in my fridge,’ another said.
One even took aim at the woman and said: ‘You’re probably the reason big supermarkets won’t sell odd-shaped veggies.’
