I’ve been having these eggs now for the last 12 mo
I’ve been having these eggs now for the last 12 months but every week I end up throwing at least 3 eggs away as some of them have got a little bit of blood in the membrane, is it just me or does anyone else notice this ? apart from this I find the eggs good value
Great value for free range. Many Large size. Fabulous for everything.
Good value eggs
I always buy these eggs as I find them good value. I weigh my eggs and put the small to the left of the box and the large to the right with the medium in the middle and use the small to brush the tops of pastry and (some of) the medium for baking. My last ones had one small, three large and most of the medium weighed 59 - 61 grams, so at the top of the scale for medium. I never have many small so, for the price, I am well pleased.
Should be mixed & not mostly smalls!
Eggs are nice but I find many more small ones than anything in this pack. I now buy the medium sized as I am guaranteed a decent sized egg.
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.
