‘Sunions’, the onions that are triple-tested to ensure they won’t make you cry, have been available in the US now at select retailers like Costco, Aldi, and Kroger. Now, the ground-breaking innovation has jumped the Atlantic and made its way to the United Kingdom, as it’s now being sold at Waitrose stores throughout the country.
The science behind how Sunions remain tearless is explained via their site:
“Sunions are not a genetically modified product and were grown through an all-natural cross-breeding program. Unlike all other onions, Sunions become sweeter every day. Volatile compounds in onions are responsible for tearing and pungent flavor and the amounts of those compounds in other onions remain the same or increase over time. In Sunions, these compounds do the exact opposite and decrease to create a tearless, sweet and mild onion.”
Sunions will be available in three-packs at all Waitrose locations in the United Kingdom starting January 18 for £1.50 GBP, or approximately $2 USD.
