Are packaged avocado halves the laziest thing ever?

This is taking convenience to a whole new level.

A Canadian grocery store has started selling avocadoes halved and peeled in plastic and cardboard packaging.
And naturally, it has caused quite the stir on social media.
Shopper Christine Kizik took to Facebook to express her disappointment with the wasteful packaging of the pre-cut avocadoes and soon after, the post went viral.
Sobeys, the supermarket which sells the avocadoes, responded to the criticism and justified its decision to sell the product.
What do you think? Do you think the convenience of peeled and pitted avocadoes is worth the extra packaging?
