The price of eggs.
« on: Apr 09, 2005, 13:47 »
We went to Bolams at Sedgefield today to get our huge supply of MEAT.

While there we noticed that their large eggs seemed to be very reasonably priced as well.

78p for a dozen or cheaper if you buy in bulk.

Has anyone seen cheaper?

I get my eggs for free from my own hens. I wouldn't pay for the sh*te that you get in supermarkets. Overpriced, tasteless, and mostly battery farmed rubbish.

There really is nothing like a bright yellow double yolker from your own hen. Supermarket eggs are total crap and have a small faded yolk.

We do tend to get through a load of eggs each week (I've been known to consume 5 for breakfast) so I've noticed the difference with good ones and rubbish ones.

Have to say that the best eggs I've had were free range ones, which we bought from a local bloke who reared his own.  Completely different coloured yolk (rich dark yellow) and creamy tasting.  Some of the 'free range' ones which we've had from the supermarkets have been luminous yellow and tasted of nowt!!  Some have even smelt of fish!!!  YUK!

The ones we've been getting recently from Bolams are rich yellow, creamy and cheap.  And no - I'm not on commission.  :lol:

And they tend to be watery.

Yeah they do. And I have noticed certain supermarkets doing more expensive 'Premium eggs'. They still dont replicate the ones from your own hens.
