Open Thread: What Kind of Eggs Do You Buy?
Anyone sick of eggs yet? It seems not, so we’ll keep going.
Eggland’s Best recently hosted me for a breakfast-for-dinner bloggers event in NYC, and they sent us all home with not just a bag of hard-boiled eggs, but also a shitload of information about what makes their pricey eggs so effing special.
Honestly, I never think twice about what kind of eggs to buy. I think once — I look at the prices and that’s it. And while I didn’t quite follow everything the Eggland shills were trying to tell me about Omega-3s, Vitamin E, lutein and all that crap, I have to admit it got me wondering — do I need to be more of an egg snob?
Am I totally missing out by going for the cheapest eggs? Do all you egg fanatics shell out for the eggpensive kinds? Do they taste that much better than the 99-cent eggs? I mean, it all came out of the same side of the chicken, right? So is there really a huge difference?
