Disadvantages: quite small
I love eggs and they are so versatile from the simple fry up to hard boiled, omelettes, scrambled, egg mayonnaise or in different types of meals (my dad has hard boiled eggs in his chilli's which is quite nice. And I generally have eggs every other day or so, in some kind of way.
Now I'm not going to go into any ethical concerns with the product as I don't know too much about it to be honest and I'm not in to animal rights (much anyway- I do care I promise) but the egg is very brittle and the shell is very thin which may be because of how the chickens are treated I don't know.
The pack costs only £1.46 making each egg less than 10p which is fantastic value as in my opinion an egg is pretty much an egg and they taste fine, although they aren't the biggest on the market. The package its self is plastic and looks rubbish (like a lot of no frills type of products), the plastic is very thin too but it's not a surprise that the packaging is lacking in quality considering the price. Eggs are quite healthy but like everything have in moderation as some believe it raises colestrerol (whilst some think eggs can actually lower it).
A serving contains (one egg):
Calories - 83kcal. 4% GDA
Fat - 6.2g. 9% GDA
Saturates - 1.8g. 9% GDA
Salt - 0.2g. 3% GDA
A very good, cheap egg but some may find ethically that it's not for them.
Summary: A very good product considering its price
