Advantages: great value for money
Disadvantages: not animal friendly
These eggs are not for the animal friendly and concious as they are farmed from battery hens, these eggs are aimed at those on a budget like myself. being a single parent and constantly on a tight budget, these eggs are perfect for most uses and work out at great value for money.
The eggs come in a clear plastic tray which contains 15 smallish eggs, all are lion stamped and dated.
I always get through quite a few eggs in a week as i do a lot of home baking, duck eggs are ideally best for cake making as they have bigger yolks which wil make tyhe cake lighter and fluffier but these eggs are great for baking because of the cost and being smaller i find that i can simply add an extra yolk or 2 to the mixture (not the whole egg just the yolk) to make my cakes as light and fluffy as the cakes i make with duck eggs at a fraction of the cost. The whites of the 2 eggs of which i used the yolks for the cake are not wasted as i use these to make meringue (mix with caster sugar until it forms a peak and bake until just turning golden) which i then break up an add to the filling for an extra texture to the cake and the kids seem to love.
Of course these eggs are also ideal for other purposes, such as boiling and pickleing, due to the size they fit into jars easily, frying and putting in a sandwich for a quick snack and they make good scrambled egg too.
In general another good value product from Tesco for anyone on a budget!
Summary: Value eggs: just what it says on the box.
