Advantages free range
|Value for Money|
I prefer to buy free range eggs having being brought up with chickens in the garden I can not bring myself to buy caged bird eggs. I wanted some eggs when I was in Tesco and decided to give the Hoad's farm free range eggs a try. I usually just buy the Tesco free range eggs in the green box.As you might expect these Hoad’s farm free range eggs come in an egg box. This is a light brown coloured one with a picture of a farmer holding one of his brown eggs.
These eggs come in medium or large sized boxes of 6. At £1.69(28.2p/Egg) for the medium box and £1.79(29.8p/Egg) for the large eggs they are more expensive3 than the Tesco free range egg and a little bit cheaper than the Happy egg free range brand that Tesco also sells.These eggs are Lion quality. The red lion means that they have the assurance of the BEIC ( British Egg Industry Council British Egg Industry Council and its labelling is on these eggs for its best before date and the farm and flock where the egg was laid
I have now used these eggs and found they broke cleanly into my jug I usually break my eggs into a jug or cup before I use then to check they are fresh. When broken these egg's look pretty much like any other egg the white was not too runny and the yolk a good yellow colour, no blood specks.
I think these eggs an attractive egg they are a lovely brown speckle egg. I know the colour of the egg will have nothing to do with the egg inside its only that different breeds of chicken lay different coloured eggs. The nutrition of a white shelled egg is the same as the brown shelled one. I still prefer a brown shelled one if I am eating a dipping egg for breakfast or a hard boiled egg for lunch.
I used some to make a cake with and soft boiled a couple for our lunch. The resulting cake tastes good but no different to my usual cake, my dipping egg was very nice but I could not detect any difference to another egg. After I had cooked my eggs they had an eggyu smell but not a strong one.Overall I was happy with these egg's they were a good taste and a good quality and I feel better for eating a free range egg.
