Everyone knows the struggle – for days, weeks and MONTHS, even, the avocado on your bench top is as hard as rock, nek minute it’s disintegrated into compost. There is no in between. Until now.
The Avocado Sock was invented by a former caterer, sick of dealing with unripe avos when preparing the “vats of guacamole” us humans require to function. She used wool ski socks to speed up the ripening process, an idea which she has now fashioned into these genius little all-wool, all-environmentally-friendly, Avocado Socks.
Just pop your solid avo in the sock and it will be ready to smash or spread in under 24 hours.
Better yet, the Avocado Socks are produced by a social enterprise in Vancouver, Canada that employs and trains people with employment challenges.
The contraption will set you back $14.99 (plus shipping) but let’s be honest, you can’t put a price on a perfectly ripe avocado.
