Misshapen foods are usually much cheaper than their counterparts—reason enough to stray from your discriminatory ways. At Giant Eagle, for example, you can score a 4-pound bag of blemished navel oranges for $2.99, a whole $2 cheaper than the conventional kind.
Purchasing ugly produce also helps with our major food waste problem. Nearly 40 percent of food produced in the U.S. each year goes uneaten, in part because certain fruits and veggies are deemed too unappealing for store shelves. Being less wasteful and getting more bang for your buck seems like an obvious win-win to us.
