Two Woolworths customers have gone viral online after poking fun at the current price of lettuce.

Mason and Mai, who run the TikTok account @savingforboba, shared a video titled ‘How to flex in an Australian supermarket’ and placed a whole head of lettuce in a plastic bag.

Stuck on the bag was a sign reading ‘Lettuce Vuitton’, as the price of iceberg lettuce and other vegetables has skyrocketed in recent weeks. 

Stuck on the bag was a sign reading 'Lettuce Vuitton' as the price of iceberg lettuce has skyrocketed

Two Woolworths shoppers shared a TikTok video titled ‘How to flex in an Australian supermarket’ and placed a whole head of lettuce in a plastic bag. Stuck on the bag was a sign reading ‘Lettuce Vuitton’ as the price of iceberg lettuce has skyrocketed 

Earlier this month millions around parts of the country noticed the cost of iceberg lettuce increase to more than $12.

The huge spike in price is likely due to inflation and the rising cost of living.

The clever video sheds light and adds humour to the dire situation, deeming lettuce to be a ‘luxury’ supermarket item.

The video has since exceeded a staggering 809,000 views and many described the TikTok duo as ‘rich’.

In the comments other TikTok users added their own flair to the joke by giving other expensive vegetables designer names. 

‘You forgot the Gucci Zucchini,’ one person wrote, another added: ‘They’re selling them at Tiffany’s now.’

A third said: ‘Omg but for me it’s more like Lermés instead of Lettuce Vuitton.’

Another person said he’s started growing his own lettuce at home for a cheaper alternative.
