Sticky problem won’t go away

There are three more fruit sticker items today in Opinion column of the Herald. This discussion is taking New Zealand by storm!

Two items are of a serious nature. In the first “Checkout operator Katie explains that the stickers on individual pieces of fruit and veges distinguish varieties and may have an embedded code for easy pricing.” Scroll down to the last item and you’ll find that “A family of gluten intolerants claim the tiny stickers on fruit are like poison to them.”

But the piece de resistance has to be the photograph that heads the column .. a chest of drawers decorated with fruit stickers and captioned “David Wishart and his workmates have found a creative use for fruit stickers.” As we New Zealanders are wont to remark: good on you mate!”
