All below 53g - categorised as small eggs in UK
I buy mixed size eggs so I can use a small one to glaze pastry etc. to minimise waste, and bigger ones for everything else. However, very disappointed to find that the largest egg in the ( delivered) box weighed 52g. In the UK small size is categorised as under 53g. The rest were all under 50g and a few under 48g. For 1p an egg more, I could have bought all medium sized eggs - so this was only mixed weight of small and even smaller. There is no option to buy small eggs - so this mixed box is misleading and unfairly priced.
Happy to receive white eggs
Great to see white eggs again. Got them once last year. When I was young all eggs were white and brown eggs were rare. It's just the colour of the chickens that give the egg colour. I prefer white eggs.
Great offer. I always prefer free range eggs.
White eggs and well past their best before date
We always buy these eggs and usually fine. For instance we had 15 brown eggs display until 22 dec, best before 29 dec in 11th dec collected order. The next collection was 17th dec and the 15 eggs were white (ok, but don’t see them often) display until 26 dec, best before 2nd dec, each egg had date stamped on it of 2nd dec so not a packaging error. I didn’t realise they could be displayed after best before date. We used them up as quickly as possible. I have photos if Tesco want to see them.
Delighted to find our free range eggs were white! Hens that lay white eggs are less aggressive and therefore less stressed when intensively farmed. I've been looking out for them most of this year as I had heard some of the supermarkets were starting to sell them as there is a large surplus from the restaurant industry!
Great flavour and value!
I buy these every time I'm buying eggs. The colour and flavour of the yolk is lovely. There's always an equal balance between the egg sizes, including the large ones.
Mixed but very small
Mixed size means small and medium, in my experience. I weigh them so I know how which eggs to use for which recipes, and I've yet to have any egg that's an official UK Large or above. On my last delivery most were under 55gms in weight. So yes, they're mixed weight, so the description is correct. But you're only getting your money's worth if you need small eggs. Every now and then I hope for a bargain and then kick myself for falling for it again... It's my fault, but I felt I should warn others. I've contacted Tesco in the past to say that they should really label these as 15 small/medium eggs. Nothing's changed, and why should it? They're mixed sized eggs. Simples.
I was initially really impressed by these, receivi
I was initially really impressed by these, receiving a good mix of large and medium eggs in the box which made them quite good value. The last box I received they were all TINY. I’ve never seen such small eggs! I weighed some of them and they were all 40g-43g (mediums are usually 50g and large 60g) so for the price you weren’t getting much for your money. Plus they’re too small to bake with or boil. After this batch I’m not sure I’d risk ordering them again.
No taste at all
NO taste whatsoever!
Now packed in plastic -- ugh!
Bought these for years and they were great--last week they came packed in plastic! Tesco, you claim to be getting rid of plastic, not adding more! Stop!
