Why plastic boxes?
Eggs were lovely but why the plastic packaging? Surely we need to minimise plastic waste? Cardboard can be recycled or put in a garden compost. As a consequence, I am no longer buying Tesco own brand, until they promise to swop to card packaging.
Tesco told me the eggs now come in plastic to help out their supplier during Covid whatever that means. I think that's just an excuse to buy cheap eggs. These eggs are poor. Small yolks, lack of taste, thin shells. I also doubt they are really free range, even with hens indoors at the minute due to bird flu I would expect better eggs (I have kept hens in the past). It's no coincidence that the cheap non free range are the only other eggs on the market to come in those plastic boxes, I think they are one and the same.
Lovely yellow eggs!
If Tesco’s say they are free range I’m sure they are! Would they really risk all the adverse publicity -I really don’t think so. I kept free range eggs for many many years and these are comparable . Also Tesco’s do state that there is a shortage of wood pulp and sometimes they have to use alternative plastic which IS recyclable .
Plastic v Visibility
People have been complaining about Tesco's use of plastic egg boxes, at least you can see that the Large eggs are the same size as the Medium eggs, look for yourselves!
These are lovely eggs with a rich, deep coloured yolk that's full of flavour. They're good fried, but they also make a very good omelette. Scrambled also works well. Thankfully, I'm NOT 'paranoid' about plastic!

Watered down, tasteless horrible white shelled eggs. I refuse to 'make do' with the inferior quality of these eggs. I had specifically stated in my instructions that I did not want these white shelled eggs but they were still delivered. When I rang to complain I was told by a rude customer service person that 'they were not different in quality'. What an insult , there is a marked difference between the free range eggs I've been buying from Tesco's for years and these insipid ones - the shells are much harder to crack - they don't whisk well and worst of all they taste horrible. AND, don't get me started on the plastic boxes!!! Not buying eggs form Tesco again unless they go back to their old the supplier.
These eggs are awful. Very watery whites and not very bright yolk. Had to write this review because they don't seem like free-range, they definitely seem like caged hens eggs. Are Tesco trying to fool us. l will definitely be switching brands. Do not buy these eggs!

Good quality - but not available!!!
Bring back carton packaging
I'm downgrading this product from 5 stars purely on back of the new plastic packaging. Please bring back the old cardboard box (which i assume was made from recycled pulp anyway and brilliant for kids craft projects). The new packaging is hard to open, doesn't absorb shocks so eggs more prone to breakage, and really, we don't need more plastics waste. Eggs are fine though.
