Cult brunch classic, gargantuan Avozilla avocados are back in select Tesco stores nationwide from tomorrow — expect a run of pandemic toilet roll proportions
What’s green and huge all over? The Avozilla, of course. Tesco stores nationwide saw the return of the ginormous avocado on Friday, just in time for at-home weekend brunches.
The limited supply of the enormous version of the savoury fruit – which are FIVE times the size of a standard avocado – are priced at €4, while stocks last.
As avocado on sourdough is still making a popular appearance on breakfast and brunch menus across the country, Avozillas are a good deal for bigger families or avomaniacs looking to get more from the brunch staple.
And they’re not just tasty, avos are proven to have several health benefits including a good source of vitamins C, E, K and B-6 as well as being high in fibre and omega-3 fatty acids.
The famous Avozillas are exclusively sourced for Tesco Ireland in the lush natural forest around Modjadjiskloof, Limpopo in South Africa, home to the wild mother-tree.
These avocados are not genetically modified, have not been treated with any growth-enhancing chemicals and can weigh between 850g-1.9kg. The Avozillas are a cross between two types of avocado, West Indian and Guatemalan, which adds to the buttery, nutty and slightly sweet taste.
Avozillas are available in 70 Tesco stores nationwide.
