Advantages: cheap... erm they are eggs?
Disadvantages: battery hens, non organic
When it comes to eggs I have never been fussy. An egg is an egg, right? So when I moved out and had to buy my own food I was obviously attracted to the much cheaper option of Tesco Value Eggs. They are from battery hens, which may not be suitable for everyone but I really did have to choose the cheapest option.
I enjoy eggs for their versatility. Whether scrambled, fried, poached or in your cake recipe when you consider it eggs can be used up quite quickly. And when you aren't as financially well as you are used to being there are some areas where you can afford to go for the value brands (every penny counts, right?) and I would say these eggs are one of those areas.
They come in a tray of 15. The tray is plastic compared to the usual cardboard but we are going for the cheapest option here so I am not really going to fault them on that. You can pick up the tray of 15 for £1.45 (this works out at under 10p per egg) or 6 eggs for 91p (just over 15p per egg).
I may not be exactly clued up on eggs but I felt that these eggs were just as good as any other. They might be slightly smaller but I wouldn't say I have noticed anything too excessive. They break fine and the egg that came from the shell was just what you would expect (there was potential for a really bad pun there...) They tasted fine and I would not fault them on any matter of quality.
I would definitely recommend them. They may not be organic but they do the job, especially when times are tough. I don't eat eggs regularly but I usually go for these as they are the cheapest - they are perfect for those on a budget.
Summary: Perfect for a budget
