These eggs are very good. The colour of the shell depends on the breed of chicken and does not impair the taste at all. The yolk colour and taste depends on what they are fed on. I keep a traditional breed who free range my garden and used to lay perfect cream colour eggs (Now too old). I have always had good sized eggs in my mixed boxes. It would be unacceptable for eggs to be discarded by supermarkets just because they don’t fall into a standard size category. These are an eggsellent purchase.
Suddenly the eggs are white ! No warning of any ki
Suddenly the eggs are white ! No warning of any kind. Not sure about the taste as the family are refusing to touch them.
I ordered these eggs expecting the usual brown one
I ordered these eggs expecting the usual brown ones but they were all white! Not sure why and not happy about this.
Very small eggs
The eggs were all small or very small
Perfectly fine and fresh eggs
Yes mine also had blue shells as another reviewer commented. But rest assured they are normal eggs inside. Used to get these blue eggs at farmers market, some pedigree breed, I think. If anything yolks were slightly pale but they were very fresh. More than anything I'm grateful Tesco started selling 15 packs.
I opened the box and the egg shells were blue! It
I opened the box and the egg shells were blue! It gave me a big shock. They looked a bit like duck eggs. I was really shocked as that is not what I ordered and the box did not describe this at all, so I was not prepared to see what I did when I opened the box!! However, Tesco were very good about it and refunded my money straight away and put in a note to the store manager about the concern raised. So not pleased with the product but pleased with the response and customer service I got from Tesco.
Good and not good
Regarding the comments on mixed sized eggs: the clue is in the title - I don't see what there is to moan about. If you want regular sized eggs, then buy regular sized eggs! I've bought these eggs for years, they're tasty, and great for everyday use - and most importantly FREE RANGE. However, the procedure of chick shredding has come to my attention, and I almost wish it hadn't! A nasty and cruel death awarded to all male chicks by the egg industry. PLEASE TESCO: MAKE A STAND AND PROVIDE EGGS THAT DON'T APPLY THIS VILE PROCEDURE! The world: it is changing - be first, not last.
perfect for party eggs
Perfect for me as I was looking for small eggs for party sized smoked salmon eggs
Good tasty fresh eggs.
Been buying these for years. Yes sizes vary, but these always seem to be fresh... with a big mound of white...not thin and runny. Yolks have good flavour too. In fact the smaller they are the tastier they seem to be.
"Mixed" = mostly small, some medium
Lol the "mixed sized" thing is kind of a trick. You'd imagine they'd be some small, some medium, some large. NOPE. All small or medium. So I guess that's *technically* mixed size, but it's mainly a trick to get rid of their smaller eggs, I feel. The eggs themselves tasted fine. But I don't like this weird marketing strategy from Tesco. Won't be buying these ones again.
